Tyrion Lannister: A stupid rebellion then. I suppose your father realized that when your brothers died in battle. Now here you are, your enemy's squire. Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things by Game of Thrones

This is the first time in the series that this particular rebellion is mentioned. The Greyjoy Rebellion is actually still fairly fresh on the minds of everyone, as it was only 9 years prior to the events that are currently taking place.

Balon Greyjoy, head of House Greyjoy declared himself King of the Iron Islands and lead the rebellion with the strength of their ships. But due to their lack of funding and overall numbers, King Robert and the Iron Throne defeated the Greyjoy’s mainly due to Robert’s brother Stannis. Balon’s eldest sons were killed in combat and much of their land was as well. The Siege of Pyke is often referenced by several characters throughout the series, as it was the last noteworthy battle in the kingdoms.

Some of the mention worthy combatants were Ned Stark and Jaime Lannister, who lead the battles at Pyke. Jory, Ned’s go-to guy, as well as Jorah Mormont, who was made a knight for his valor in combat.

Balon’s punishment was that he had to release his only son, Theon, to be a ward for House Stark.

JON: Lord Stark? There are five pups. One for each of the Stark children. The direwolf is the sigil of your House. They were meant to have them. Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

Spoiler Alert! Yield your eyes! You’ve been warned!

This whole scene is a generalized story of what is to come out of this first season of the show. The dead stag (sigil of House Baratheon) is meant to be King Robert and how he died alone. The direwolf (sigil of House Stark) is meant to be Ned, has come too far south, out of it’s comfort zone and ends up dying with it’s pups in close range, fighting for their lives.

Just as Robert (the stag) calls on Ned (the wolf) to come south to King’s Landing, where they both die and Ned’s kids are left helpless.

Tyrion Lannister: Grenn's father left him too... Outside a farmhouse when he was three. Pyp was caught stealing a wheel of cheese. His little sister hadn't eaten in three days. He was given a choice: his right hand or the Wall. I've been asking the Lord Commander about them. Fascinating stories. Lord Snow by Game of Thrones

First and foremost you need to realize that Tyrion is wildly intelligent… Tyrion has been watching the “training” that master-at-arms Alliser Thorne has been applying to the new recruits. Upon arrival Alliser has multiple men attack Jon — knowing very well that Jon has already been trained. Alliser views Jon as overprivileged because of his upbringing. So to turn Jon’s fellow new recruits against him, he has them fight Jon, who after defeating everyone is inevitably making him unpopular.

Tyrion, in so many words, lets Jon know that yes he possesses more skill, but he should see the bigger picture and that he’ll need to befriend them to advance.

As Bran enters the crypt he makes direct eye contact with the raven and sees that it has three eyes. Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things by Game of Thrones

This is the first of many “visions” Bran has in his dreams. Its gloomy feel is assumed to predict that something bad will happen. The raven first leads Bran into his family’s crypt, implying future doom to his family, or one of his family members.

In the novels, A Song of Fire and Ice, it isn’t a raven that Bran sees, but a crow rather. The bird is important to Bran because it wakes him from his coma and let’s him see visions.

Before Khaleesi take the Iron Throne
They call her the mother of dragons, you under attack, nigga this our home
Mother of Dragons by Big Boi

“Khaleesi” is the Dothraki title of “wife of the Khal”. Khal being the Dothraki warlord. Think of it as… The First Lady. In this case, or in the story of Game of Thrones, the Khaleesi is Daenerys Targaryen. Her family ruled all of the Seven Kingdoms and was usurped, leaving Daenerys and her brother to flee.

Another of her titles, and she has many, is Mother of Dragons. It can be taken quite literally as she has three pet dragons. However, her family’s bloodline is often linked to ancient dragons and is their family’s sigil. As she is the last of her bloodline, she is the Mother of “Dragons”.

You under attack, nigga this our home

Daenerys is mounting a full fledged attack on the land that once belonged to her family. Big Boi just words it with a little more street justice.

Viserys is in a tub inside of a tent, being bathed by Doreah. Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things by Game of Thrones

Earlier, Doreah and Daenerys had a delightful discussion, or two, to which Doreah got the impression that Viserys had purchased her (remember, she is a whore) to advise his sister. We quickly realize that isn’t the case… Viserys is such a dick.
