Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. Want a golden crown? Want to capture the The Imp and put him on trial? Sure, but you might not like how things turn out. But I sure loved how Episode 6, "A Golden Crown," turned out. We got a trial that blended Court TV with Spartacus, saw Tyrion putting his famed wit to use, saw an ambush in the woods and, most shockingly, the death of a character who, yeah, had it coming, but I'm not sure anybody deserves that.

Let's recap: Ned groggily awakes to see King Robert and Queen Cersei. It feels like when you've done something really bad as a kid and your parents are standing over your bed. Except if you sass-talk these two, they'll put your head on a spike.

"Lord Stark was returning drunk from a brothel, when his men attacked Jaime," Cersei accuses, which is the most unconvincing lie ever. Ned is more likely to build a Kings Landing waterslide park then get drunk with the lads and start fights.

"Catelyn will release Tyrion and you'll make your peace with Jaime," bellows The King of Avoiding Conflict.

"He's attacked one of my brothers and abducted the other," Cersei shoots back. "I should wear the armor and you the gown."

Whoa-whoa-whoa, just because plumb King Robert looks like he's with child doesn't mean you can put him in a corner. He slaps her. Ned looks displeased by Robert hitting his enemy, because that's how honorable he is.
