‘Game of Thrones’ #ForTheThrone Countdown: “Fire and Blood” (S1E10)


Previous Episode: “Baelor”

 

Episode: “Fire and Blood” (Season 1, Episode 10)

Original Air Date: June 19, 2011

Director: Alan Taylor

 

Plot (via HBO)

Season One Finale. A new king rises in the North; a Khaleesi finds new hope.

 

Best Moment: Daenerys emerges from the fire with three dragons

The best moment of the episode could easily be the northern men naming Robb as the King in the North, as that’s a powerful scene that’s worth mentioning, and it’s hard to not get goose bumps just thinking about it. However, Daenerys Targaryen entering the fire with nothing but three petrified dragon eggs and emerging with three baby dragons is arguably the most important thing to ever happen in Game of Thrones. The screeches of Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion to end Season 1 with the Targaryen theme playing is somehow both hopeful and frightening.

 

Best Quote

“There are no men like me. Only me.” – Jaime Lannister

 

Trivia (via IMDb)

The birth of Daenerys’ dragons marks the first living dragons in nearly 150 years. According to the books, the last dragon died during the reign of King Aegon III in the year 153.

MVP: Daenerys Targaryen

The Season 1 finale deals with the aftermath of Ned Stark’s unforeseen death, as Robb Stark is named King and the North and Jon Snow chooses to uphold his Night’s Watch vows and go beyond the Wall rather than try to betray the Watch and join Robb, but Daenerys going from desperate to worshipped in the final scene makes her the episode MVP. Dany had few followers and no known allies after Khal Drogo’s death, but dragons can change a lot, and suddenly an inexperienced girl from Essos becomes the Mother of Dragons and a real player in “the game.”

 

#ForTheThrone Moment: Daenerys walks into the flames

For Daenerys to emerge from the flames with three dragons, she had to take the chance by stepping into the flames in the first place. With Khal Drogo dead and a huge decrease in support to her claim, Dany basically had to do something drastic if she was going to eventually take the Iron Throne, and it paid off with three baby dragons—the first of their kind in well over 100 years and eventual weapons of mass destruction that could help take the Throne by force.
