Storyline

A calmer King Robert mends fences with Ned Stark and reinstates him as the King's Hand despite the objections of his wife Cersei. While he goes hunting with his brother Renly he puts Ned on the throne. A group of farmers complain of having been attacked by a Knight and his army and knowing the culprit orders him stripped of all titles and lands. Ned decides to send Arya and Sansa back to Winterfell for their protection. Sansa in particular doesn't want to leave saying she wants to marry Joffre and have blond babies. Her offhand remark leads Ned back to the book his predecessor was so interested in and he now understands why John Arryn was visiting King Robert's bastard children. Meanwhile, Daenerys and her brother Viserys have yet another confrontation but this one is settled by Drogo himself. An imprisoned Tyrion Lannister demands to be tried and asks for trial by combat.

Trivia

When Viserys Targaryen tries to steal the dragon eggs, he mocks Ser Jorah Mormont who blocks his path by saying "And yet here you stand", to which Mormont replies "And yet here I stand." According to semi-canon sources, "Here We Stand" is the motto of House Mormont. It is not clear whether this is an intentional reference. See more »

Goofs

While pure gold requires 1064.18 °C (1947.52 °F) to melt - a temperature not achievable in a simple campfire - many gold alloys melt at considerably lower temperatures. Pure gold is almost never used in jewelry because it is much too soft, so we can assume Khal Drogo's gold is alloyed. Hence the fact that it melts is not a goof. However it does melt extremely quickly over the course of just a few seconds and that is not realistic. You cannot even melt the equivalent amount of chocolate that fast in a campfire. See more »

Quotes

[in the duel, Bronn has killed Ser Vardis Egen and threw him out of the Moon Door. Lysa is furious]
Lysa Arryn: You don't fight with honor!
[Bronn turns to face Lysa, smiling mockingly]
Bronn: No...
[Bronn points to the open Moon Door]
Bronn: ...he did.

Tough Decisions, Trial and Coronation
16 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

King Robert reinstates Ned as the King's Hand and goes hunting. Ned is recovering his wound on the leg but is forced to take tough decisions against Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane in the name of the King. Tyrion demands a trial by combat and finds a knight to represent him. Viserys disrespects his sister Daenerys and Khal Drogo in front of their people demanding his golden crown and Drogo immediately resolves the situation.

"A Golden Crown" is another gripping episode of "Game of Thrones" with tough decisions take by Ned; the trial of Tyrion; and the coronation of the ambitious Viserys that finally receives a golden crown. My vote is nine.
