Disclaimer: Neither of us have read beyond the first novel in the Song of Ice and Fire series, and therefore our discussion of the events and predictions for future episodes are exclusively based on the events depicted in the HBO series.
We’ve passed the midseason point of season 2 and we won’t pretend that we have any idea where the show is going! In this podcast we discuss the shocking death that begins episode 5 (seriously?!?!), catch-up with Daenerys and ponder the practicality of her plan to “reclaim” the Iron Throne, and examine how the slow disappearance of Joffrey’s illusion of power is beginning to impact the entire course of King’s Landing. We also share our thoughts on Arya’s predicament and just how terrible Theon Greyjoy is becoming.
