The King’s steward wakes [[Eddard Stark|Ned]], telling him [[Robert Baratheon|the King]] demands his presence. When Ned reaches [[Red Keep#Maegor's Holdfast|Maegor's Holdfast]], he finds [[Kingsguard]] guarding the bridge, and inside the royal apartments, Robert Baratheon lies dying, gutted by the boar. Robert had called everyone off to try to take the boar himself, but he had drunken a great amount of wine. Robert tells Ned to write his final testament, naming Ned Protector of the Realm and Lord Regent until his heir comes of age. Ned changes that part, but he does not have the heart to tell the King that the children are not his. Outside, [[Varys]] asks Ser [[Barristan Selmy|Barristan]] who gave Robert all the wine, and the Lord Commander tells them it was the King’s squire, [[Lancel Lannister]]. As Ned is helped across the bridge by [[Tomard]] and [[Cayn]], Lord [[Renly Baratheon|Renly]] asks for a moment. Renly tells Ned he has 100 swords to offer him, and if they strike now, they can take the [[Red Keep]], seizing [[Cersei Lannister|Cersei]] and the children.

Synopsis

The King’s steward wakes Ned, telling him the King demands his presence. When Ned reaches Maegor's Holdfast, he finds Kingsguard guarding the bridge, and inside the royal apartments, Robert Baratheon lies dying, gutted by the boar. Robert had called everyone off to try to take the boar himself, but he had drunken a great amount of wine. Robert tells Ned to write his final testament, naming Ned Protector of the Realm and Lord Regent until his heir comes of age. Ned changes that part, but he does not have the heart to tell the King that the children are not his. Outside, Varys asks Ser Barristan who gave Robert all the wine, and the Lord Commander tells them it was the King’s squire, Lancel Lannister. As Ned is helped across the bridge by Tomard and Cayn, Lord Renly asks for a moment. Renly tells Ned he has 100 swords to offer him, and if they strike now, they can take the Red Keep, seizing Cersei and the children.

Ned denies him, stating Robert is still alive, and he will not shed blood in the castle. Renly leaves, and Ned returns to his Tower, commanding Tomard to take 20 men to guard his daughters on the ship that leaves on the morrow. He also tells Tom to deliver a letter to Lord Stannis, for his eyes only. The letter offers the throne to Stannis as the rightful heir. Ned sends for Littlefinger, telling him he knows the secret that Jon Arryn died for, but Littlefinger obviously knew the secret all along. He tells Petyr that he intends to offer the throne to Stannis, but Baelish tells him he is a fool if he does not bow to Joffrey. Stannis will cause the realm to bleed, as he will seek the heads of Cersei and the children, the Lords Tyrell and Redwyne for the siege of Storm's End, and even Lord Balon Greyjoy for his uprising. Ned reiterates that he will offer the throne to Stannis, as he is honor-bound to do so. Ned asks Littlefinger to secure him the City Watch of King's Landing in order to secure the succession, to which Baelish agrees to pay off the Watch Commander and his men.
