JAIME: You’ve much to teach me, no doubt. But our sister craves your attention.

TYRION: She has odd cravings, our sister.

JAIME: A family trait. Now, the Starks are feasting us at sundown. Don’t leave me alone with these people.
Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

Tyrion Lannister is fully aware of the fact that his siblings, Jaime and Cersei Lannister, are having sex with each other even though they’re brother and sister and even though Cersei is married to King Robert Baratheon.

At this point in the story, he’s probably even aware that Jaime is the biological father of Cersei’s children, not Robert.

CATELYN: We need plenty of candles for Lord Tyrion’s chamber. I’m told he reads all night.

MAESTER LUWIN: I’m told he drinks all night.

CATELYN: How much could he possibly drink? A man of his … stature.

LUWIN: We’ve brought up eight barrels of ale from the cellar. Perhaps we’ll find out.

CATELYN: In any case, candles.
Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

as well as his love for liquor

Catelyn Stark is more concerned about finding an adequate amount of candles so Tyrion can read in his guest room, before King Robert Baratheon and the Lannisters reach Winterfell (the ancestral home of House Stark). Maester Luwin is more concerned about finding the right amount of alcohol for Tyrion to consume.

NED: Your Grace.

ROBERT: You’ve got fat.

[NED gives ROBERT a “What about you?” look. They start laughing.]
Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

In his youth, King Robert Baratheon was in exceptional shape. He was admired by many people in the Seven Kingdoms for his strength and for his looks.

Over the years, since becoming King, he’s gained a significant amount of weight and no longer looks the way that he did in his youth.

Robert and Ned are longtime friends. He ironically jokes that Ned gained weight when in fact, Robert is the one who really got fat over the years.

NED: Tell me.

CATELYN: There was a raven from Kings Landing. Jon Arryn is dead. A fever took him. I know he was like a father to you.

NED: Your sister. The boy …

CATELYN: They both have their health. Gods be good. [pause] The raven brought more news. The king rides for Winterfell. With the queen and all the rest of them.

NED: He’s coming this far North, there’s only one thing he’s after.

CATELYN: You can always say no, Ned.
Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

Catelyn Stark (Ned Stark’s wife) didn’t want to tell Ned about the death of Jon Arryn. Jon was the Lord of the Eyrie (ancestral home of House Arryn) and Warden of the East. He was a father figure to King Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark in their youth, when they were his wards. When Robert rebelled against King Aerys (“The Mad King”), Jon Arryn sided with Robert and Ned instead of following Aerys' instructions of beheading them.

After the war, when Robert became King, Ned went back home to the North and Jon Arryn served as Hand of the King to Robert. The Hand of the King is basically the closest adviser to the King and in many cases, is the one who runs the kingdom while the King does whatever he wants.

Catelyn’s father, Hoster Tully, decided to wed his other daughter (and Catelyn’s sister), Lysa, to Jon Arryn. At the same time, Catelyn was supposed to marry Ned’s older brother, Brandon, but he was killed by Aerys. Instead, Catelyn was to marry Ned. The purpose of these marriages was to strengthen the bond between House Tully, House Stark and House Arryn, since they were all on the same side of the rebellion. Lysa and Jon eventually had a son named Robert.

Initially, people thought Jon had died of a fever. As it turned out, he was actually poisoned.

Catelyn also informs Ned that King Robert is traveling north to Winterfell, the ancestral home of House Stark. With the passing of Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, Ned knows the purpose of the visit. He certainly doesn’t want to be the new Hand of the King, neither does Catelyn.

NED: You understand why I did it?

BRAN: Jon said he was a deserter.

NED: But do you understand why I had to kill him?

BRAN: Our way is the old way?

NED: The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.
Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

Ned Stark is a firm believer in the old traditions, especially in accordance with honor. One has to always obey the law, respect his vows and since Ned is the Warden of the North, uphold the King’s laws. The punishment for deserting the Night’s Watch (an ancient military order that protects the Seven Kingdoms from the dangers of what lies Beyond The Wall) is death since the Night’s Watch vows are for life.

However, unlike the King who has a royal executioner, Ned believes that a real ruler or person in power has to do the deed himself. It’s real easy for someone to pass a sentence and have another person carry out the execution but when you have to actually swing the sword, that means that you are willing to suffer through killing another person. Ned believes that when you sentence somebody to death, you have to look in their eyes and hear their final words and execute them yourself. Nothing should come easily including an execution.

The reason Ned brings his sons, particularly one of his youngest sons, Bran, is because he understands that in time they might become the Wardens of the North. They have to understand what it means to be the top person in the North and how to properly govern it.

NED: Winter is coming. Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

“Winter Is Coming” is the title of the episode as well as the words of House Stark. In Westeros, all of the great noble houses have a coat of arms as well as family words. House Stark uses the grey direwolf as their coat of arms.

The term “Winter Is Coming” is meant as a warning and as a threat. In Westeros, Winter is the season that usually brings about horrible tidings. Food becomes more scarce, people freeze to death and it also can signify the return of The Others aka The White Walkers, an ancient race of supernatural beings who can summon the dead.

People from the Southern part of Westeros believe it’s all superstition but only true Northmen understand the ferocity of Winter.

The term has also been used as a threat in the books and the show. Most notably when Robb Stark tells the Lannister scout after he’s been caught to relay to Tywin Lannister that “Winter is coming for him. 20,000 Northerners marching South to find out if he really does shit gold” (people around Westeros like to say that Tywin is so rich that he shits gold).
