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 garykmcd

Did You Know?


The introduction theme and map depiction animation of each episode of Game Of Thrones is now well known for depicting every "city/region" that takes place in said episode. However, The Eyrie's setting (and many revisited scenes crucial to the storyline) are seen in this episode, yet it is not represented in the opening credits. See more »

Jojen Reed: If you let my sister go, I can help you.
Karl Tanner: You can help me?
Jojen Reed: I can.
Karl Tanner: And how are you gonna do that?
Jojen Reed: I have the sight. I can see things.
Karl Tanner: Well, that's very helpful.
Jojen Reed: Things that haven't happened yet.
Karl Tanner: That's a fine thing. A fine thing. Have you seen what I'm going to do to your sister? Have you seen what they are going to do to your sister? Don't close your eyes.
Jojen Reed: I saw you die tonight. I saw your body burn. I saw the snow fall and bury your bones.

Once again, another great episode for the fourth season

First of His Name does drag a bit longer, but aside from that, it does a great job continuing the story-arcs for the Starks and Lannisters after what happened to King Joffrey. The characters are still interesting and once again, they keep you interested to see what happens to them in the next few episodes.

The storyline and script continues to be well-written, the performances are still superb especially Peter Dinklage (who continues to be even relatable than I thought), the relationships still shine, the music score is still beautiful, the scenery and sets are very lavish, the directing and editing is sharp, and it has a lot of great atmosphere within the relationships. So, overall, a nearly perfect episode for the fourth season.
