Game of Thrones script
Game of Thrones  Episode #Pilot "Winter Is Coming (2011)
Synopsis: Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

Occasionally the bird dips down, and the map resolves back

into reality for just long enough to give us a view of some

points of interest: Winterfell’s old stone towers, full of

cold beauty. The foreboding Eyrie castle high atop the Vale

of Arryn, a feat of montane architecture that would have been

impossible for medieval engineers.

When the raven reaches King’s Landing, the map resolves back

into reality as the bird drops down into the dirty sprawl of

the capital.

The raven flies through the open gates of the Red Keep, a

massive compound with red walls the color of blood. The bird

flies through an open window into the throne room, to land on

the Iron Throne itself-- a throne built from the hammered

swords of a thousand defeated enemies.

The raven pecks at its wings, cleaning itself after the long

journey, alone in the empty throne room.



LORD EDDARD “NED” STARK (40) sits on his motionless horse,

his long brown hair stirring in the wind. His closely-trimmed

beard is shot with white. He has spent half his life training

for war and the other half waging it, and his face conveys

both authority and a haunted sadness.


He is accompanied by a dozen members of the HOUSEHOLD GUARD,

all on horseback. Over their heads flaps the Stark banner: a

gray direwolf racing across an ice-white field.

South of the Wall the grass is still green and the sun is

shining, but the air is cold enough to cloud the breath of

four guardsmen as they escort Gared toward the stump of a

massive oak tree.

Weeks have passed since we saw the ranger but he seems to

have aged years, his eyes bloodshot and weary, his face

haggard, his clothes filthy and torn.
