Here’s a surprise, the Kingslayer fighting Lord Eddard, something which never happens in the book. In the novels, Lord Eddard was a brilliant, resolute military commander, but was not equally brilliant in personal skill-of-arms, unlike Ser Jaime. In the TV series, this seems to be changed, making Eddard a much more skilled fighting man for dramatic effect.

In the background can be glimpsed several women, who work at the brothel. One of these women seems quite dark-skinned, and could represent Chataya (the proprietress) or her daughter, Alayaya. Another of the women carries an infant: this is Mhaegen.
