The character-focused "A Golden Crown" highlights Game of Throne's cast to exhilarating effect, with particularly entertaining comic relief courtesy of Peter Dinklage's Tyrion.
This may be my favorite episode yet -- and that's despite the fact that there's no Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the sight of whom is becoming increasingly important to my continued happiness.
Episode six was a corker: an hour of subterfuge [and] skulduggery.
Ned's actions were morally correct but politically naive, given his family's precarious position and the size of the crown's debt to Tywin. That said there was something magnificent about the way he dismissed the idea that gold wins war .
This was a strong episode for just about everybody (save Jon, who sits another week out).
I can hardly complain that this wasn't an action-packed episode.
Speaking of flying things, all the most entertaining scenes are happening at the Eyrie this time.
In this episode... we saw just how dangerous a game this is.
It's a flawless piece of television pulled off with the style and confidence of a major big-screen event.
Exciting, funny, scary, (slightly) tragic... though it didn't feature every character,... it had a whole lot of them, and a whole lot of what's quickly made this one of the best hours on television.
Harry Lloyd (Viserys) has played the role with a magnificent balance of charm and menace.
We have one really twisted royal family on our hands. I guess that makes Lannisport the Arkansas of Westeros.
Still no Jon Snow this week in "A Golden Crown," but we did get a lot of movement in the Daenerys storyline, including the unceremonious demise of her bi-polar brother Viserys.
