Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

Season 4, episode 5. Tommen is crowned king of King's Landing. Sansa and Littlefinger arrive at Eyrie where her insane Lysa Arryn awaits their arrival. Lysa has the idea that her niece, Sansa should marry her son Robin if Tyrion is executed. Bran and company are captured and carried to Craster's Keep. The Night's Watch goes to Craster's Keep in attack but Bran decides to continue North with his company in search of the three-eyed raven instead of letting Jon Snow know he's fine. Cersei and Margery speak on queenship. Brienne and Pod are still on their way to find Sansa.
