SEASON 1, EPISODE 6:

  • "A Golden Crown", in which Daenerys consumes overly rare organ meat and discovers she is to become the mother of the Dothraki messiah. Oh, and Viserys gets what's owed to him. :dry:


  • I feel the lack of Ned's fever dreams keenly in the show here. I mean, sure, it's probably less confusing and more streamlined for the viewer to see the Tower of Joy flashback in one of Bran's visions down the line, but it adds so much to Ned's character to see how much the past haunts him, and how much it impacts events to come.
  • Ned awakes to Robert and Cersei standing over his bed - that's probably the last thing he expected... or wanted, for that matter.
  • Robert's all "ALL RIGHT YOU TWO, SHUT UP. I'D RATHER BE GETTING DRUNK AND FIND A CUTE PROSTITUTE OR THREE FOR COMPANY, AND YOU TWO ARE MAKING ME WORK. I RESENT IT."
  • "I shall wear this like a badge of honor." "Wear it in silence or I'll honor you again." Damn you, George, making me root for domestic violence. (The human heart in conflict with itself, indeed.)
  • Ya know, if only Ned could have just obeyed Robert's order and had Catelyn return Tyrion to King's Landing ASAP... it would have saved so much trouble.
  • No, Ned, you're not allowed to quit your job. I'm the king, I get what I want.
  • And just when it seems like there's a slim chance that things will get better... Robert's going boar hunting.
  • "Killing things clears my head." That's so Robert.
  • And so he goes forth to meet his porcine doom. *sigh*


  • This dragon egg wants to be warm... put me on the coals... doooo iiiitttttt.... Is it doing anything? No? Not hot enough I guess, I'll just pick it up with my bare hands.
  • Dany got that fire resistance thing going for her. I kind of hate the fact that the show runners decided to make her immune to all fire at all times, including her hair, but whatever.


  • The Continuing Adventures of Brandon Stark and the Creepy Avian with Surplus Oculi.
  • That bird really wants you to go down into the crypts, doesn't it?
  • HODOR!
  • and SADDLE!
  • So much joy when Bran is riding...
  • And so much Theon being a douche. No Theon, it's not exactly Robb's "duty" to decide to call the banners and declare war just because he's nominally in charge at Winterfell while his parents are away.
  • "Where's Bran?" "Don't know, it's not my house" :tongue:
  • TONKS! I mean, OSHA!
  • Osha and her Night's Watch deserter buddies apparently left in such a hurry they forgot to bring a comb. >.>
  • Robb's not half bad with that sword :flamingsword:
  • That look on Robb's face when he realizes the guy has a knife to Bran's throat.
  • And Theon shows off his "famed archery skills"
  • I think Robb was a bit hard on him here. The guy did save Bran's life. Of course, he was kind of responsible for the situation in the first place, since if he hadn't been distracting Robb with talk of declaring war, Robb would have been able to keep track of a kid woohooing his way through the forest on horseback.
  • And Tonks returns with them to Hogwarts! I mean... :unsure:


  • Yo, Tyrion. You're rolling, dude. YOU'RE ROLLING. WAKE UP.
  • Apparently Mord hangs out RIGHT BY that door at all times.
  • NO GOLD! $%#! OFF! :laugh:


  • SYRIO! :wub:
  • Syrio has a point. When you're troubled is a good time to train, because you're more likely to be in that state of mind when fighting is necessary.
  • Plus it helps to get Arya's mind off of things. Just so.
  • There is only one thing we say to Death: Not today.


  • That is one rare horse heart. *urgh*
  • My favorite thing about this scene is the way it highlights Viserys' character - he's so jealous of how much respect Daenerys gets, and her belonging. He's never belonged anywhere, really.
  • Good job not puking.
  • Drogo is so proud of her... and I'm still kind of disturbed that I want to root for their relationship. Damn you George.
  • RHAEGO! RHAEGO! RHAEGO!
  • And then the confrontation between Viserys and Jorah in Dany's tent, when he goes to steal her dragon's eggs.
  • "If I sell one egg, I'll have enough to buy a ship. Two eggs, a ship and an army." "And you have all three." "....... I need a large army." :laugh:
  • Who can rule without wealth or fear or love? *ponders that*
  • "Does loyalty mean nothing to you?" "It means everything to me." "And yet here you stand." "And yet here I stand." That's our Jorah.


  • Tyrion yelling for Mord again... or Maude... can't tell :laugh:
  • Apparently he was farther from the door this time. Maybe he backed up so he could rush in faster and push Tyrion closer to the edge.
  • Love Tyrion trying hard to explain abstract concepts to Mord :laugh:
  • "Of course you have... you're a smart man." :unsure:
  • You can just see the wheels turning in Tyrion's head trying to decide what message to have Mord relay that will be most likely to get him released.
  • AAAAAAND... Tyrion "confessing his crimes" :laugh:
  • "I'm not very good at violence, but I'm good at convincing others to do violence for me." Aaaaaand pan to Bronn. *nod*
  • Little Lord Sweetrobin seems to be very intrigued by the story of Tyrion stealing the serving girl's clothes and forcing her to return to the castle naked.
  • THE TURTLE STEW. OMG.
  • "I once brought a jackass and a honeycomb into a brothel..." .... "What happened next?" LOLOLOLOL
  • I love Tyrion going off on a rant about the lack of justice in his treatment.
  • Yeahhh, little mister "Can I make him fly?" is gonna give him a fair trial.
  • I DEMAND A TRIAL BY COMBAT.
  • I think in all fairness Lysa should have allowed him to delay the trial by combat in order to send for his champion. I mean, she was prepared to keep him in the sky cells indefinitely until he threw himself into the wild blue yonder. :tongue: But then we wouldn't have gotten Bronn... so that's all right.


  • This pathetic excuse for a boar hunt. Urgh. Season 1 budget was obviously too small to spring for something resembling a royal hunt, instead of 4 guys wandering through the woods with a spear and a skin of wine.


  • LOL this scene. I was following the recaps on Television Without Pity, and the forum discussion between episodes. There was a lot of conversation about the accent of this commoner who is petitioning Ned about the Lannisters pillaging the Riverlands... especially where he says "they covered our children in pitch and lit them on fire" - one of the commenters swore up and down it sounded like he said "they covered our children in pig$#!t". :ohmy: I have never been able to hear it correctly since.
  • And Petyr Baelish once again tasked with exposition duty, overly explaining subtleties that the audience may miss, but the characters he's talking to would obviously know, and it is becoming irritating. Especially since it's so often his character that does it.
  • "Your Grace..." "That's the King's Hand you're addressing." "Your... hand..."
  • Official Ned is Official.
  • Aaaaand the Brotherhood Without Banners is born.


  • Oh yeah, trial by combat... look at that biiiiiiiig open hole in the floor to drop through if you lose your footing. >.>
  • It's fun watching how agile Bronn is, and how willing to use whatever fighting tricks he can instead of conventional dueling moves. And it works, so why not?
  • "You don't fight with honor." "No. He did..." Pragmatism.
  • "Can I make the little man fly now?" Um, no. That's not how it works, creepy child.
  • I love the look on Mord's face when Tyrion tosses him his gold as he walks by with Bronn.


  • Snotty Sansa is snotty. :dry:
  • "Oh wait, I just realized. I don't care."
  • Why is she being so rude, anyway?
  • Joffrey! SMACK HIM IN THE FACE!
  • Ugh, smarmy Joffrey is sooooo annoying.
  • "I'll never be cruel to you again." LIAR.


  • Theon chasing after Roz, as if he has any say in what she does... :tongue:
  • "Let me see it one more time!" Really Theon? REALLY? :rolleyes:


  • *Ned tries to send the girls back to Winterfell... and they both object.
  • Arya: Oh, I can bring Syrio back to Winterfell with us? OK cool.
  • Sansa: NO I CAN'T, IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD, I'M SUPPOSED TO MARRY JOFFREY AND BE HIS QUEEN AND HAVE HIS BABIES!
  • "Seven hells." ROFL I LOVE YOU ARYA
  • This line cracks me up. Ned offers to make a better match for Sansa later on, with someone who is brave and gentle and strong... and Sansa says "I don't WANT someone who's brave and gentle and strong, I want HIM!" :laugh:
  • AAAAAAAAND Ned finally gets run over by the clue bus. "Hey, you know, all of Robert's bastards look exactly like him, but Cersei's kids? Not even a little. Hmmmmmmmmmmm"


  • Drums! Dancing! Topless women! Drunk Viserys! It's not a Dothraki party until Viserys embarasses himself publicly, you know.
  • YOU ARE NO KING.
  • You know, they have about a dozen ways to kill you without shedding blood, Viserys.
  • This is just sad and terrible.
  • "You shall have a golden crown that men shall tremble to behold." "That was all I wanted... what was promised." Oh, poor, pathetic Viserys. You're just clueless.
  • YOU CAN'T TOUCH ME, I AM THE DRAGON. Dude just broke your arm, I think he can touch you.
  • CROWN FOR KING.
  • Thunk.

 

Fire cannot kill a dragon. *nod*

 

And now, I am exhausted and irritated at this laptop for making me watch this thing nearly all the way through 3 times tonight because the cursor likes to move randomly while I'm backspacing over a typo, and lose EVERYTHING. I'm done, y'all.

 

Tomorrow, Ned sets the world record for stupidity, Jon says his vows, Dany nearly dies, and Arya finally sticks someone with the pointy end.

 

Good night, my friends!
