14 Jun, 2011

Lord Eddard ‘Ned’ Stark, Bean’s character on the television series Game of Thrones, is executed in the ninth episode of the first season. Queen Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey, and Sansa Stark, portrayed by Sophie Turner, reach an understanding with Jack Gleeson’s King Joffrey Baratheon that Stark’s life will be spared and his daughters kept safe in exchange for a confession of treason, but the king reneges on the deal:

They have the weak hearts of women.

The episode draws in 2.664 million viewers, the third-highest viewership count for the series’ first season, and is well received by critics.
