Tommen is crowned king, the first of his name. Cersei can see that her newly-crowned son and Margaery are exchanging friendly smiles. Cersei is surprisingly frank with her about Joffrey and asks if she is still interested in being queen. Tywin tells Cersei of the Lannisters dire financial situation and needs the Tyrell family to be part of the crown. Jorah Mormont advises Daenerys of Joffrey's death and they contemplate attacking King's Landing by sea. There is other news as well. The freed slaves of Yunkai have been re-enslaved by their old masters and a coup in Astapor has enthroned a butcher who has declared himself emperor. Daenerys decides to rule over the territories she has conquered. Sansa and Petyr Baelish arrive at the Eyrie where he introduces Sansa as his niece Alayne though her aunt, Lady Arryn, is aware of her true identity. Brienne and Pod continue their journey but Pod proves to be a not very useful squire. Written by
The episode title is a reference to the naming standard used for kings of Westeros. The newly crowned King Tommen is now known formally as: King Tommen of the House Baratheon, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men and Lord of the Seven Kingdoms. See more »
In the fight scene of Karl and Snow, Karl spit heavily on Snow face. In next scene, there is no traces of spit. See more »
More exposition than serious events. It begins with the new king taking over. Cersei talks to Margery, asking her if she will be queen. She says she just doesn't know at this point. She says the right things to stay in good graces. Dany is having some trouble as the new ruler of the conquered city, as offense has been taken and possible retribution in the offing. Littlefinger and Sansa end up in the Ayrie with the crazy queen and her disgusting son. Littlefiner has to pretend to cotton to her wishes until he can move on. He owes her and can't take a chance. Arya lets the Hound know that she is interested in killing him or at least wishing him dead. Roose finally meets his death when Bran uses his special gifts to get rid of him. Of course, Tyrion is in prison and about to stand trial. This should be the focus of the sixth episode.
