If there is one episode that is not to be missed in "Game of Thrones" Season 4 so far, it is episode 6. The brilliant performance of Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister has got the fans excited, with some calling it better than the description in the books.

The "Game of Thrones" Season 4 Episode 6 finally gave what fans have been waiting with bated breath - the court scene of Tyrion Lannister. All the fans knew the trial would be manipulated by Cersei Lannister but not many expected the support Tyrion got from his brother Jaime Lannister.
Trial began with a knight from the king's guard testifying against Tyrion for threatening the king. Maester Pycelle had his revenge on Tyrion for locking him up; he accused Tyrion of stealing the poison used on king Joffrey.
It was Jaime Lannister who came to his brother's rescue. He was willing to give up his position as the King's guard and go to Casterly Rock as Heir to Tywin Lannister. Tyrion would have perhaps pleaded guilty had the final witness not come forward.
In a shocking development Tyrion's mistress, Shae, was called to the stand to testify against Tyrion. She said that it was Tyrion who planned Joffrey's murder with his wife Sansa. She went on to share intimate details between her and Tyrion, this enraged Tyrion and in an emotional outburst he called for a trial by combat.
The trial scene of Tyrion Lannister is perhaps the best so far in "Game of Thrones" Season 4 and some fans are calling it his best performance ever. Many fans believe that he will be getting an Emmy award for this performance alone.
The other notable development in "Game of Thrones" Season 4 episode 6 is that Stannis Baratheon now has the backing of the Iron Bank of Braavos. The bank has the reputation of backing the right candidates to recover their loans. It was the appeal made by Davos that convinced the Iron Bank and he is seen recruiting men to field another army against the Lannisters.
The dragons of Daenerys Targaryen have grown bigger and Drogon was seen hunting sheep in "Game of Thrones" Season 4 episode 6. The mother of dragons is learning the ropes to rule in Meereen with the help of her trusted advisers Jorah and Barristan.
Yara Greyjoy made a failed attempt to rescue her brother Theon, the changes in her brother from Theon to Reek shocked her. Ramsay is preparing Theon to play a new role in the upcoming episode of "Game of Thrones" Season 4.
