A Game of Thrones Chapter 62 Summary

How It All Goes Down

Daenerys 7

  • In order to invade Westeros, Drogo needs money to buy ships, which he goes about raising the old-fashioned way: by raiding undefended villages and selling the people there into slavery.
  • Although Dany needs the money, she doesn't approve of the rapes that occur. She commands her bodyguards to start claiming the women to prevent them from this horrible fate.
  • Drogo doesn't have any difficulty raiding a Lhazareen village, but he does run into some trouble with a different Dothraki khalasar that is raiding the same village. Drogo gets a few wounds, but one of the women that Dany saved says that she's a healer.
  • Her name is Mirri Maz Duur, and though the Dothraki don't trust her, she seems to do fine work stitching up Drogo's cuts.
