Clarke appears as Daenerys Targaryen in The Pointy End, the eighth episode of the first season, alongside Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo and Iain Glen as the Westerosi knight Ser Jorah Mormont. After vowing to conquer the Iron Throne of Westeros, Khal Drogo leads the Dothraki horde west through Essos towards the Narrow Sea crossing. The khalasar raid villages to take slaves to sell to finance the war. Despite the advice of Ser Jorah, Daenerys orders them to stop raping the women they have captured, and takes the women into her service to protect them, angering the Dothraki warriors. Khal Drogo fights a duel to the death with a warrior who insults Daenerys and although he is victorious, he suffers a deep wound. Daenerys insists that a female healer from the captured village be allowed to treat the injury, although Khal Drogo’s Dothraki bloodriders protest that she is a witch.
