"Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" (S5E6)

This episode was dreaded for us, right? No one wanted to rewatch it, we didn’t want to discuss it, but something magical happened along the way... Lucy joins Kristin in a surprisingly cathartic and incredible discussion of easily the worst moment in Game of Thrones history. We’re quite proud of this one. Give it a listen, even if you didn’t rewatch (we understand).
