Game of Thrones Season One watch-a-thon: “A Golden Crown”
(previous: “The Wolf and the Lion”)
I knew it I knew it I knew it. I guessed the secret of the king’s sons: The king’s sons are not the king’s sons — they’re Jaime’s (eww) — and that’s why Arryn was looking for the king’s bastards, because one of the bastards is the true heir to the throne. The little shit prince Joffrey is never going to be king.
Oh, hey: Why did that one guy step to fight for Tyrion in the trial by combat? Because a Lannister always pays his debts?
Meanwhile, Daenerys has drunk the barbarian Kool-Aid — or eaten the horse heart.
Never thought I’d feel sory for Viserys, but… Oh god. This continues to be one of the most creatively gruesome fantasies I’ve ever seen. Ugh.
