Official Synopsis – The Dothraki horde travels through the Horse Gate and into the city of Vaes Dothrak. Daenerys Targaryen asks Ser Jorah Mormont if her brother would be able to lead the Dothraki to take the Seven Kingdoms. Jorah tells her that the king’s advisors are wise enough to stop King Robert Baratheon from meeting the Dothraki in open combat. (Source: HBO)



In the background horses can be heard neighing and their hoofs hitting the ground. The Dothraki horde arrives at Vaes Dothrak, the Dothraki city. It rides under a large gateway arch made of two statues of rearing horses. After passing the gate, several Dothraki ride off down the road. Daenery, Jorah, and Viserys stop for a moment under the horses. 

Jorah Mormont: Vaes Dothrak. The city of the horselords.

Viserys Targaryen: A pile of mud. Mud and shit and twigs – best these savages can do.

Daenerys Targaryen: These are my people now. You shouldn’t call them savages.

Viserys Targaryen: I’ll call them what I like, because they’re my people. This is my army. Khal Drogo is marching the wrong way with my army.

Daenerys, Jorah, and Viserys continue. We have a broad overhead shot of the road and countryside.  The next shot has Daenerys and Jorah riding next to one another. Viserys is not present. 

Daenerys Targaryen: If my brother was given an army of Dothraki, could you conquer the Seven Kingdoms?

Jorah Mormont: The Dothraki have never crossed the Narrow Sea. They fear any water their horses can’t drink.

Daenerys Targaryen: But if they did?

Jorah Mormont: King Robert is fool enough to meet them in open battle, but the men advising him are different.

Daenerys Targaryen: And you know these men?

Jorah Mormont: I fought beside them once, long ago. Now Ned Stark wants my head. He drove me from my land.

Daenerys Targaryen: You sold slaves.

Jorah Mormont: Aye.

Daenerys Targaryen: Why?

Jorah Mormont: I had no money and an expensive wife.

Daenerys Targaryen: And where is she now?

Jorah Mormont: In another place, with another man.

Vaes Dothrak

Vaes Dothrak is the only city in the Dothraki Sea. It lies in the shadow of the Mother of Mountains. It is a place of peace where the Dothraki khalasars may gather and meet to trade, but not to fight. Therefore it is forbidden to draw a sword while in the city, under penalty of death. The entrance to Vaes Dothrak is marked by two large statues depicting a pair of stallions.
