Snow, Sam, and a few others are coming out of the tunnel under the Wall. As soon as the door is high enough, Snow's wolf runs out into the past-the-wall area and proceeds (I assume) to romp around adorably. Ghost is a cute doggie. Excuse me; a cute dire-doggie. They go to a tree with a big wooden face on it and Jon and Sam kneel down and recite their vow. They will be wearing no crowns and winning no glory. Then there's a string of things that begins with "I am the sword in the darkness," but it somehow doesn't end with "I...am Darkwing Duck!" Finally, they are told that they knelt as boys but can rise as men of the Night's Watch. Sam has a little trouble standing up, because it's important to keep reminding us that he's fat. Sam and Jon embrace. Then Ghost comes back, and he's got something in his mouth. It's a human hand. Good doggie!
Back to Daenerys and the Dothraki. The wine merchant is chained up to a pillar and she asks Jorah what's likely to happen to him. To the guy who tried to kill Khal Drogo's lady? Nothing good, I'm guessing. According to Jorah, he'll be chained behind the horses and have to run to keep up. Until he falls, at which point he'll just be dragged for miles. Dany was hoping King Robert would leave her alone with Viserys dead (although you'll note that she was already working on Drogo to go seize the throne, so it's not like she was planning on staying in exile), but Jorah assures her that Robert's spies will always follow her. I'm pretty sure that Jorah is one of those spies. He's one of Varys's spies, anyway, which is basically the same thing. And Robert, he says, will always want her dead. I guess he's technically wrong about that, but I feel like if Robert makes a miracle recovery, he'll also have a sudden change of heart about leaving her alive. Torchbearers come in, followed by Drogo, who is positively radiating anger. I'm starting to think this guy is going to make a terrific Conan the Barbarian. He makes sure Dany is okay, then tells Jorah that in return for his help, he can choose any horse he wishes. These guys and their horses. And then he goes into an awesome vow, during which he stomps around and flexes his muscles and it's all Daenerys can do to not jump him right there: "And to my son, the stallion who will mount the world, I will also pledge a gift. I will give him the iron chair that his mother's father sat upon. I will give him Seven Kingdoms. I, Drogo, will do this. I will take my Khalasar west." And so on, with the wooden horses and black salt water. He'll be killing the men in iron suits, raping the women, taking the children as slaves, and bringing their broken gods back to Vaes Dothrak. It, in short, is totally on.
