We come here to say goodbye to Game of Thrones. While we're still going to get to play around in this universe courtesy HBO's numerous prequels, sequels, and spin-offs planned, and of course George's assurances that he's still writing, we're not going to get any more of this particular take on the story. How do we feel about this? Does The Last Watch documentary change those feelings? We discuss these and more before getting the final words from feedback. We'll see you all for "Fire & Blood" and the prequels!Gods of Thrones is now 25% off!  Check out the preview chapter and then lock in the savings!

In our penultimate podcast for HBO's Game of Thrones, we invite Gods of Thrones co-author Anthony Le Donne back to the studio to discuss how the book might resolve in ways that are consistent, but perhaps more satisfying, than some found the show's resolution. Then we're off to feedback, where we talk about Martin's progress on Winds, our thoughts on Bran the Broken, where things line up with Dany's prophecies in the final analysis, and much more on "The Iron Throne". See you next week as we sign off and transform the podcast into a Thrones prequels feed!If you're curious about the scene mentioned on the pod where Jon Snow talks about dragon psychology before he slips and falls.Gods of Thrones is now 25% off!  Check out the preview chapter and then lock in the savings!

Winter came and went, an evil queen was overthrown, and it was so nice we had to do it twice. "The Iron Throne" is Game of Thrones attempt to hurry up and tie up all those loose ends. Was it satisfying? That depends on how you've felt about the show for the past two seasons. Ultimately, this show's final moments and it's place in the pantheon of television will be a matter of hot debate for years to come, to say nothing of the novels and prequels and sequels we'll be getting, and how that may change and influence how we feel. Here, we're content to just talk about our personal thoughts on the only definitive finale of The Song and Ice and Fire. We'll be back Friday for more SpoiLore talk, and next week we'll have a look back at the season, and series, as a whole as we wrap things up for now.Game of Thrones may be over, but Bald Move's television year is just getting started!

Jim and I try to sort through everyone's reactions and feelings about "The Bells", as well as people's reactions to our reactions! In a wide ranging podcast, we discuss what we're still hoping to see in next week's finale episode, what Dany's descent to madness means in the context of portrayals of heroic women, thoughts on capital punishment and vengeance, and defenses and deconstructions of Arya and Jaime's arcs. All this plus a ton of great feedback from you, the listener.

It's time to have a family discussion about Game of Thrones episode 805, "The Bells". Because we're all up in arms about it and we can't agree if it's the best, most satisfying episode or the worst ever. It's notoriously hard to be objective about a subjective opinion, but we try our level best. Our considered thoughts on Jaime's arc, the CLEGANEBOWL!!!!, Arya rejecting the call to vengeance, and the Mad Queen Daenerys await you -- if you dare! Then we don our asbestos underwear and wade into your feedback on this incredibly divisive episode of #DemThrones. We'll be back Friday for more thoughts on this episode and what it means for George Martin and his adaptation of the hit television series on the SpoiLore podcast.

Jim and I are here to talk everyone through their complicated feelings about "The Last of the Starks", as well as to sit in judgment of the latest batch of fan theories. I lead a group therapy session, and struggle to come to grips with my conflicting thoughts on Dany's possible turn as heel, as Jim tries to steer me away from some unsound theory investments. Also, thoughts on the on-set secrecy of Game of Thrones and how it may have impacted the production this season. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

As we announced last week, we've declared #FanBankruptcy, and are along for the ride on this saddleless dragon we call Game of Thrones. Keeping this in mind, it was nice to see this episode, "The Last of the Starks", run back to their roots in setting up some classic court politics and intrigue, with multiple betrayals and backstabbing in the offing! Jaime and Brienne hooked up! Pod is still very much the Rod! The Stark girls won grim smiles from the Hound! On the other hand, they're still struggling with the way they are telling the story they want to tell; characters die in unbelievable ways, and crucially characters then later live in completely unbelievable ways. With just two more episodes left, hopefully the Double D's haven't declared creative bankruptcy and we'll get a few twists and turns that manage to please most. Thanks to everyone who voted last week, we have released a preview chapter for our new book, Gods of Thrones! It's perhaps hard to wrap one's mind around what a pseudo-scholarly satirical take on the religions and cultures of Game of Thrones actually looks like, and now you don't have to guess. If you dig the preview and want to get to the owning a copy stage, volume one and volume two  are now available in paperback and e-book formats at Amazon!Last call for our exclusive "House Snow" enamel pins!

Jim and A.Ron mine the hidden depths of Game of Thrones extensive lore and backstory to answer your questions and debate fan theories. Is Hot Pie the last, best hope for the North? Is Harrenhal the ultimate anti-wight hideout? How does the battle of the dead vs. the living look from a numbers perspective? Are there any Children of the Forest left in the world? What was the meaning and possible significance of Jenny's Song from the latest episode? All this and more are discussed in this episode!If you can't get enough Thrones content, may I humbly suggest Gods of Thrones, a book series I co-wrote with a religious scholar on the cults, customs, and characters of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Jim and A.Ron get sentimental over the very nostalgic episode of Game of Thrones, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”. Given the way this episode ends, this might be the last bit of sweetness and light many of these characters receive. Gulp. Dany is having trouble sharing power, Tyrion struggles to get his mojo back, Arya is looking for love in all the right places, and then damn near the entire gang gets together for an extremely fun, extremely heartwarming fireside chat. Next week the dead will be here; we’ll enjoy these final moments with our favorite characters while we still can. If you can’t get enough Thrones content, may I humbly suggest Gods of Thrones, a book series I co-wrote with a religious scholar on the cults, customs, and characters of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Jim and A.Ron are here to delve into the deeper mysteries of Game of Thrones, discussing the lore, prophecies, and world building that make Thrones great. Some of this material could be construed as spoilery, as it involves informed speculation about events that could happen on the show based on material found in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. We do not discuss production spoilers or leaks on this podcast. Today we talk dragons in the north, Valonqar prophecies, the weirdification of Bran Stark, Night King plots and much more! If you’re interested in finding out more about Gods of Thrones, a book I wrote about the religions and cultures of Westeros, you can find volume one and volume two on Amazon in eBook and dead-tree editions!

Jim and A.Ron are here to break down all the action from this week’s premiere episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Winterfell”. And indeed the ancestral home of House Stark houses the direwolf’s share of the action and intrigue, as characters are reunited, dragons are flown, and divisions within the forces of the Living threaten to undermine the war against the Dead. It’s clear that sharing power and cooperating is going to be a challenge, not only for Jon and Dany, but for the many different peoples who have thrown in their lot with them. We’ll be back Friday for our SpoiLORE edition that delves into the background details of the World of Ice and Fire as well as mines for hidden details that may yet remain in the source books! You can get 25% off all annual memberships to Club Bald Move from now until May 7th! A.Ron wrote two books on Game of Thrones religions and culture! They’re fun and informative, and feature amazing exclusive Thrones inspired artwork!

Game of Thrones is back, and we’re here to break down all the angles, all the characters, all the theories, and all the feedback. Who will sit the Iron Throne? Will there be an Iron Throne? Will the Hound find peace? What role will Tyrion play after the War for the Dawn? Will Bran wind up living in a tree? Will Dany wind up with an all-woman Queensguard?

A.Ron and Anthony are back to talk Game of Thrones and Gods of Thrones! This week we discuss the curious coincidence of Stark children warging, how the British legend of Bran the Blessed could tie into the fate of Brandon Stark, and how Jaqen H’ghar functions as a literary genie of the bottle. Listener, you ain’t never had a friend like him. If you enjoyed our discussion, please check out godsofthrones.com where you can purchase the first volume of Gods of Thrones, as well as get a bunch of really cool merch emblazoned with amazing, original, exclusive art inspired by the world of GRRM!

Getting ever closer to HBO’s Game of Thrones season 8 premiere, Anthony and A.Ron are back to celebrated a related milestone; the imminent release of Volume 2 of their deep dive into the religions and cultures of Westeros, Gods of Thrones! This follow up to Volume one covers the Faceless Men, The Ironborn, the Dothraki, the Valyrians, and many more topics with tons of historical notes, cultural analogs, fan theories, footnotes, and fun. For this podcast we selected a few points of interest for discussion: How did the Targaryen penchant for incest drive them to conquest? What does a connection to a Tolkien horse god tell us about Daenerys and Daario’s relationship? We ponder these and other nerdy A Song of Ice and Fire topics before considering your feedback! If you’re interested in purchasing volume 1 of Gods of Thrones, it’s available now in print and digital version. Volume 2 is available for pre-order, and will be out for release April 9th!

We’re so close we can feel the dragon fire! HBO dropped an awesome new trailer for the long awaited final season of Game of Thrones, and we’re here to break it down in near-exhaustive detail. We’re letting you know our plans for coverage this year, which we’re aiming to be the most timely and comprehensive around. Instant takes, deep dives, and lore talk, a fantasy film festival, and a new book by A.Ron. The trailer showed us a lot of tantalizing details. What could possibly terrify Arya? Will Jon become a dragon rider? Who is the mysterious leader of the Golden Company? Why does the Mountain look like a human butt plug? All these topics and more are considered! As mentioned, A.Ron wrote a book taking a humorous and insightful look inside the religions of Westeros, Gods of Thrones. We also recorded a bunch of promo-podcasts in the off-season that you might enjoy.

We’re back with a super-sized wrap up episode for our coverage of our new book, Gods of Thrones, as well as putting George’s Fire & Blood to bed as we consider the final third of the book, starting with “The Dying of the Dragons: Rhaenyra Triumphant”. Anthony and I get things kicked off with a discussion of Lord Cregan Stark and his “Hour of the Wolf”. Then I welcome our old pal Kim Renfro (follow her on Twitter!) back to discuss women in Westeros, our theories on Game of Thrones and GRRM himself. Finally, I interview illustrator Chase Stone, who did the cover and interior art for Gods of Thrones, about life as a professional artist, his work on Magic: The Gathering and The World of Ice and Fire, as well as his influences and techniques. Finally, we wrap up with a mammoth edition of feedback! As always, you can purchase our book, Gods of Thrones on Amazon! It’s available in book and paperback editions!

Anthony jones me once again as we discuss the second third of GRRM’s new Fire & Blood, as we consider from “Jaehaerys and Alysanne: Their Triumphs and Tragedies” to “The Dying of the Dragons: Rhaenyra Triumphant”. Firewyrms! Mysteries of the wall! Dragon eggs beneath Winterfell! And many other interesting twists and tidbits we found in this fake history book detailing the first 150 years of Targaryen reign over Westeros. As always, if you enjoyed our coverage, please consider checking out our book, Gods of Thrones. It’s chock full of humor, interesting research about the origins of the religions and cultures of A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as fun theories and conjecture!

We talk about events up to but not including “Jaehaerys and Alysanne, Their Triumphs and Tragedies”. Next week we’ll be reading up to “The Dying of the Dragons, Rhaenyra Triumphant”, before finishing the book the week after. This week’s all about Aegon, Maegor, and the third generation Targaryen that really steals the show, Jaehaerys! We talk about the gossipy tone the Maester sometimes takes, the doctrinal concept of “Targaryen Exceptionalism”, missing dragon eggs, maester conspiracy theories, and that most well worn Thrones hobbyhorse, incest.

We discuss our initial thoughts, anything that might have changed some of our thoughts in Gods of Thrones, any intriguing jumping off points for theory-crafting, and consider fan feedback.

Anthony and A.Ron continue their deep dive into the characters and themes from their new book, “Gods of Thrones”. Now available on paperback! Today we’re talking about a polarizing character among the fandom, Catelyn Stark. What are the essential differences between Book!Cat and TV!Cat? What is her worst move in playing the Game? Who would win in an all-female Houseoff? How vital is Lady Stoneheart’s arc to understanding Catelyn, and why does the show skip it entirely? We discuss and debate all this and more!

It goes without saying that Tyrion Lannister is an extremely interesting character in A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones, but you’d think he’d make a poor focus for our book on Westerosi religion. After all, he’s famously skeptical of superstition and faith in a world full of magic, physics defying creatures, and powerful gods. But it’s precisely that contradiction that makes him so fascinating in this context! Join Anthony and I for a deep dive into Tyrion, the events that have shaped him, and the journey that has brought him before a dragon goddess that he can believe in. Have questions or feedback? Send it in using the contact info below… Our book, “Gods of Thrones” is available now on Amazon! If you’ve already read it, we’d really appreciate you leaving us a rating and review.

Dr. Anthony Le Donne joins me today to talk about the new book we co-authored in the off-season, Gods of Thrones: A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Religions of Ice and Fire, available now on Amazon. The book is filled with fun analysis of the religions, cultures, and characters of Game of Thrones and delves into the real life history and religion that inspired GRRM when creating his world. We discuss our history with Thrones/Song, as well as our book, its tone, our writing process, and our favorite things we learned in our research. We’ll be back next week to talk more Gods of Thrones and take your questions. Later this month we’ll be joined by some of your favorite podcast hosts and writers to host a three part book club-style review of George R.R.

And just like that, we put HBO’s Game of Thrones season three into the Bald Move history books. Again. “Mhysa” is an excellent way to wrap up the season and set the table for season four, as we get great work out of all our star-crossed lovers; Tyrion, Shae, Sansa, Jon, and Ygritte. Arya has some fine work servicing the fan’s desire to see her be the terrifying little murder beast we know she can be while simultaneously making us feel really, really bad for her lot in life. Ramsay might be a total and complete bastard, but he does know how to work a pork sausage to get some laughs in an other wise pitch black scene. Finally, Dany attempts to end her season three arc on a note of triumph, but is hampered by the racial tone deafness of the show runners. Thanks for joining us on this ride! We’ll be back in November to discuss Martin’s new book on Targaryen history, Fire and Blood, as well as Anthony and I’s new book, Gods of Thrones.

This week we have the pleasure of talking about one of the best, and most gut wrenching episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Rains of Castamere”. The Lannisters score a decisive victory against the Starks in surprising and brutal fashion. Particularly rough is Arya, who is forced to witness the destruction of her family when she was oh so close to being reunited with them. Over in Essos, Dany provides a lone bright point as her captains’ valor and her reputation as Breaker of Chains lays the slave city of Yunkai at her feet. We’ll be back next week to wrap this season up. See you then!

Jim and A.Ron consider the latest episode in our summer re-watch of season three of HBO’s Game of Thrones. “Second Sons” features the second happiest wedding we’ve ever seen on Westeros (which is damning with non-existent praise), Arya swinging from utter despair to something approaching optimism in her captivity with the Hound (the sweet, summer child), as newcomer Daario Naharis steals into Dany’s camp attempts to steal Dany’s heart.

For feedback we discuss the relative intelligence of wights, debate the apparent height of the Wall, and consider people’s pet theories on what things will look like post series-finale of Thrones. See you back here next week!

We’re back with another terrific season three episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Climb”. Of course the title refers to the Wildlings’ epic climb of The Wall, but also Littlefinger’s unhinged speech about chaos delivered to a shell shocked Varys. Both are amazing in their way, as is Lady Olena and Lord Tywin’s political duel in the Hand’s chambers. We discuss all this plus tons of fan commentary and questions!

Lots of things get “Kissed by Fire” in this episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The Hound. Jon Snow. Leslie’s Rose. But in all seriousness there is so much good packed into this hour of Thrones; Robb beheading an important bannerman in the pouring rain; Jaime venting a lifetime of frustration and regret upon an unsuspecting Brienne; Tywin managing to bitterly disappoint both of the children he has in his presence; and Dany looking more and more like the Conquerer that she thinks she’s destined to be. Join us for a lengthy discussion of all of this and more, and just a metric ton of feedback from your fellow fans. See you next week!

We really enjoyed “And Now His Watch Is Ended”, the latest episode in our summer rewatch of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. Packed with intellectually satisfying intrigue, as well as one of the more satisfying action scenes in Thrones history, it has something for just about everyone. We ponder the comeuppance of Tywin’s children, the finer points of contract law in Essos, and the altruism of the Tyrells. Plus, a super sized mailbag and the promise of another next week! If you’ve been waiting until the last moment to get in on A.Ron’s book Kickstarter, covering the religions of Westeros and their real life counterparts, now is you time to shine. There’s less than a week left to get exclusive Kickstarter rewards and push the project towards some very cool stretch goals!

Jim and A.Ron do a retrospective review of HBO’s Game of Thrones episode, “Dark Wings, Dark Words”, same format, we first do a non-spoiler review then get in depth and spoilery at the end of the podcast. We discuss the Reed children who make their first appearance this episode, analyze Shae and Tyrion’s relationship, fear for Margaery’s life as she tries to dance around the psychotic Joffrey, and catch up with Arya, Jaime, Brienne, and Robb. Thanks for all the great participation this week! Next week we’ll be dealing with an abbreviated mailbag due to our travel plans, but that just means a super sized feedback the week after!

Jim and A.Ron finish our retrospective re-watch of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones with the finale, “Valar Morghulis”.  It’s a typical GoT finale, in that it does a great job of setting up the next season as something you can barely wait to arrive.  Arya could start super assassin training!  The White Walkers are marching on the Night’s Watch!  Dany’s dragons can spit fire!  We talk about these topics and a ton of last minute feedback before signing off with some spoilers for season 2 as well as debating a few lingering season 7 stuff in the secluded SpoiLore section.  See you next year! Speaking of SpoiLore, if you’re a show-only watcher who doesn’t want any spoilers, it’s best to just skip that part.  If you love that stuff and want to catch up, there is a Tinfoil SpoiLore archive of previous podcasts by topic.

Jim and A.Ron are nearing the finish line of their retro-re-watch of Game of Thrones season two.  This week is one of the all time great episodes, “Blackwater”.  There aren’t many heroes or villains in this one, just brave men fighting each other in desperate and bloody fashion.  Great action, but even greater character moments for Sansa, Cersei, Tyrion, and the Hound.  We have a lot of fun gushing over this episode,  then we bat clean up with feedback and our SpoiLore section at the very end of the podcast. Speaking of SpoiLore section; need to catch up?  Here’s a Tinfoil SpoiLore archive of previous podcasts by topic.

Jim and A.Ron’s rewatch of HBO’s Game of Thrones continues with “The Prince of Winterfell”.  We’re really feeling the tension as the countdown to the invasion of Stannis approaches zero.  Also, Robb commits political suicide, the Halfhand recruits Jon for a dangerous mission, and Arya tries to escape Harrenhal before it’s too late.  All this plus feedback, and at the end of the podcast our SpoiLore section where we delve deeper into the history and lore of Westeros.  Need to catch up?  Here’s a Tinfoil SpoiLore archive of previous podcasts by topic.

Jim and A.Ron consider “A Man Without Honor”, the latest season two episode on our re-watch of HBO’s Game of Thrones.  This episode is about revealing the true characters of people like Jamie, Cersei, Tyrion, Tywin, Shae, Sansa, and Robb, and the thing you take away is that these are all people, multifaceted, conflicting, contradictory, but in a way that feels human and real.  And Dany, is you know… looking for her dragons. We also discuss show spoilers at the very end of the podcast, as usual.  If you’d like to hear more, you can consult our Tinfoil SpoiLore archive of previous podcasts by topic.

Jim and A.Ron re-watched Game of Thrones episode “The Ghost of Harrenhal”, break it’s neck, and throw it off a parapet.  Just kidding, but we do bite into it like Jaqen into an apple.  We discuss tortured metaphors, Brienne’s rushing into commitments, Stannis’ reluctance to face The Truth, and Arya’s fun and exciting new friends at Harrenhal.  All this and a bunch of interesting feedback, and a lore and history packed SpoiLore section!

Jim and A.Ron re-watch episode 204 of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Garden of Bones”, and mine a rich vein of almost forgotten Peak Tyrion. We also got gummed up with a clumsy arrival of Daenerys at the great city of Qarth, and Jim can’t take Lancel seriously, and we’re both really bummed out about the arrival of this season’s re-cast “Mountain”, but the arrival of the fantastic Papa Lannister single-handedly makes up for all of it.  Another great season 2 episode, is what we’re saying, and we have some terrific feedback to go along with it. We also talk spoilers at the very end, so if you haven’t caught up with the latest on the show or books you might want to skip that.

Jim and A.Ron continue their re-watch campaign of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “What is Dead May Never Die”.  There is some really strong stuff in here; Tyrion’s canary trap for the Small Council, the heroic and badass last stand of Yoren, the introduction of two fantastic new characters in the forms of Brienne of Tarth and Margary Tyrell.  But there is also some less fun stuff; like anything to do with Shae. But all in all a great episode despite not featuring Dany or Robb.  All this discussion, plus a healthy heaping of feedback ahead!

And now our (re)watch begins with “The North Remembers”, the season two premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones series.  We’ll be working our way through the entire second season, the first half of the episode is entirely spoiler free for first time viewers, then we’ll have a mini-SpoiLore section after we play the end of pod theme music for people who are caught up on the books / show.  In this episode we’re appreciating Tyrion’s swagger, Sansa’s strength, Robb’s toughness, and Jon’s girlish good looks.

Jim and A.Ron develop their thoughts on the season finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Lion and the Wolf”.  Many were pleased, yet there are some lingering resentments.  We try to talk through why we thought Cersei’s scheming, Sansa and Arya’s collaboration, and the Night King’s ultimate plan to cross the wall made a lot of sense both from a plot and character standpoint, but we definitely leave room for people who have trouble looking past how we arrived there.  In the end, we both agree that the series is set for a thrilling and satisfying conclusion, and the DD’s have nearly twice the time to develop it.  Will they succeed?  Can Martin eventually do better? Join us next week as we wrap up our Season 7 coverage and try to answer these questions and more.  And don’t forget Friday, as we delve into the deeper meanings and book implications for the events of this season!  See you then.

Jim and A.Ron declare that the finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Dragon and the Wolf”, did enough to, if not completely excuse the issues of the past few episodes, at least have us back to being fully excited and eager to see the story resume… probably  sometime in 2019.  That’s a long wait, and for as much grief we’ve given the Double D’s here and there, we’re really going to miss their show while it’s away.  But that’s just two guys opinions.  What did you think?  Tell us at the links below!  We’ll be back Tuesday for a full featured analysis and tons of feedback, then we’ll talk about how the finale impacts our understanding of book and show prophecies and predictions.  See you then!

HBO’s Game of Thrones episode 706, “Beyond the Wall” has been extremely polarizing for all of us fans, which, say what you will, isn’t something that you want to be saying about the penultimate episode of the penultimate season of the biggest TV show in the history of the world.  Are people too focused on picking nits?  Or has the storytelling really gone off the rails this season?  Whether we’re seeing the first signs of shark jumping or just hitting a rough patch remains to be seen, but we discuss the good, bad, and ugly of this week, including the many fine conversations between our heroes, saying good bye to characters both red shirted and beloved, and arrive at the conclusion of the fairly silly plan to convince Kings Landing to join in the fight against the Army of the Dead.  Next week will be better.  Please?

A.Ron and Jim are loving this episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Beyond the Wall”, that is admittedly about 20% ridiculous and 80% pure awesome. I know that 20% is going to bother a lot of you guys and gals, but come on!  So many epic things are happening!  Ice zombies! Dragons!  Ice zombie dragons?!?  Don’t worry about the logic of Jon’s plan, or his idea of fighting a ridiculous single man rear guard, or the Night King’s questionable targeting decisions.  In our book, when Game of Thrones follows the Rule of Cool, it tends to rule plain and simple.  Tell us why we’re wrong!  We’ll talk about it, at length, Tuesday.  See you then!

Jim and A.Ron try to talk about an incredibly entertaining episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Eastwatch”, while also dealing the the fact that the main thrust of the plot is dubious at best.  And we’re not talking about jetpacks or wonky numbers of ships and wagons, we’re talking about the main mission North of the Wall.  Why does anyone think this is a good idea?  On the other hand, we’ve come around on the Arya and Sansa intrigue, and there is a whole lot else to like… Gendry and Jon reprising Robert and Ned’s adventures. Davos showing off his sweet smuggling skills.  Drogon doing what Drogon does best, looking majestic AF and generally being jaw dropping in every scene he’s in, including the one where he gets his snout snuggled.  That’s impressive range for a fake dragon, ya’ll. All this, plus we got more emails than Davos has bad crab meat, and we’re back Friday to do it all over again, SpoiLORE style.  See you then!

Jim and A.Ron have seen the very latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Eastwatch”.  There was some awesome stuff no doubt, a very special someone picks up a hammer, two brothers reunite, Ser Davos out-Han Solos Han Solo, and Sansa and Arya bicker like season one.  But the creaks and cracks of the Double D’s kicking the plot into hyperdrive are starting to be heard and felt.  Hopefully it’s just a minor case of dragon indigestion, and not a sign of more serious tears and holes in the realistic, grounded, dragon and zombie infested world they’ve so carefully constructed.

Jim and A.Ron break down the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Spoils of War”.  An episode with  the sheer spectacle of the might of Daenerys’ armies unleashed upon Westoros balanced by great character moments with the Stark children in Winterfell… and perhaps a budding romance between King and Queen, it’s basically everything you want in Game of Thrones.  We discuss Bran’s attachment to humanity and try to figure out exactly what he knows, analyze Littlefinger’s remaining options, geek out over Arya and Dany being badasses, and question Tyrion’s loyalty.  All this, plus tons of feedback!  And don’t forget, we’ll be back Friday with more lore, backstory, and book inspired theories and analysis.

Jim and A.Ron “Stormborn” was a great episode of Game of Thrones, with tons of highlight scenes.  It also has a bit of a Euron and Sandsnake problem, but we don’t think it’s fatal, assuming Dan and David can tear off the affected portions of the show and apply medicinal ointment to stem the spread of ludicrous jetpackery and shipbuildery that threaten our collective suspension of disbelief.  We also discuss Sansa and Jon’s uneasy sharing of power, Littlefinger’s increasing desperation, what price Tyrion will pay for his plan failing, and Arya’s emotional reunion on the show.  All this, tons of feedback, and WAIT THERE’S MORE!  A whole SpoiLore edition of the show coming out Friday! We mentioned how you can get TellTale’s Game of Thrones House Forrester Saga for free as Playstation Plus members.  You can also see us play through that entire season if your a Club Member.  You can try the first episode for free!

Jim and A.Ron survey the horrors of war that is episode 609 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Battle of the Bastards”, and proclaim it brutal, ultimately satisfying, if a tad predictable.  There were no real surprises to be found tonight if you’ve been paying attention the past few weeks, but it’s still nice to see the end of some truly nasty regimes tonight, even if the casualties were high in both the statistical and personal sense.  At this stage each loss of life is going to hurt in the war to come, that still awaits north of the wall. And we still don’t know the true cost of the hasty alliances made with the Greyjoys and Littlefinger’s Arryn forces.  And will Sansa’s talk of “no one” be prophetic?  We ponder all this and more in this Instant Take.  Be sure to rejoin us on Tuesday for our complete scene by scene break down with tons of commentary from our fellow fans.

Jim and A.Ron still don’t like the resolution of Arya’s Bravosi plotline, but admire a lot of the other goings on in the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “No One”.  The problem is, that’s a big part of the episode and over two years of investment into Arya’s Faceless Men training, so, it’s no minor thing.  Other topics include the duality of Jaime, what’s next for King’s Landing, and is Sandor considering a second career as people’s champion?

Jim and A.Ron are not sure what to make of Arya’s plot tonight during the latest episode of Game of Thrones, “No One”.  And yes, while the Mountain wrecking and Sandor chopping was admittedly cool, and the 30 seconds of Dany kind of made up for Tyrion’s stale comedy stylings, and far be it from us to look askance at any scene where Jaime and Brienne make moon eyes at each other and speak of honor, we’re kind of bummed that the King and High Sparrow seems to have dumped a bucket of cold water on our Cleganebowl hopes.  No man is as accursed as a Hypeslayer, Tommen.
