305 – Kissed by Fire

8/9/2018
More
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...

304 – And Now His Watch Is Ended

8/2/2018
More
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!

303 – Walk of Punishment

7/26/2018
More
Jim and A.Ron take in the episode "Walk of Punishment" of the third season of HBO's Game of Thrones. Dany struggles to find a moral middle ground as she strikes a bargain for a massive slave army, Robb struggles with his command, Theon gets a glimmer of hope, Jaime is taught a harsh truth about the value of his family name. See you back next week as our summer re-watch rolls on!

302 – “Dark Wings, Dark Words”

7/19/2018
More
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...

301 – Valar Dohaeris

7/12/2018
More
Jim and A.Ron are back for the summer re-watch of HBO's Game of Thrones season 3. Might as well start at the beginning, with episode 301, "Valar Dohaeris". Daddy's back in town, which is an interesting dynamic which finds Tyrion and Cersei trying to find their place, Margaery attempts to win over the peoples' hearts and minds, Jon sells his role as double agent, and Dany struggles with the morality of liberating a continent using slave labor. All this, plus lots of feedback! See you next...

210 – Valar Morghulis

11/13/2017
More
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...

209 – Blackwater

11/6/2017
More
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...

208 – The Prince of Winterfell

10/30/2017
More
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...

207 – A Man Without Honor

10/23/2017
More
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.

206 – The Old Gods and the New

10/17/2017
More
The realm is apparently unsafe for those beloved to Theon and A.Ron this week as we discuss the treachery of Theon sacking Winterfell, the role A.Ron had in the death of Roy Dotrice (94), along with everything else that this decidedly good episode of Game of Thrones had to offer.

205 – The Ghost of Harrenhal

10/10/2017
More
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!

204 – Garden of Bones

10/3/2017
More
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,...

203 – What is Dead May Never Die

9/26/2017
More
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...

202 – The Night Lands

9/19/2017
More
A.Ron and Jim continue their rewatch of season two of HBO's Game of Thrones with "The Night Lands". On this podcast, we discuss the opposite of a headless horsemen, Tyrion's tragic flaws, Theon's ignorance of his personal history and that of his people, the Iron Islanders, and the moral quandary of the Night's Watch. Also, A.Ron apologizes for muffing up the White Raven lore from the previous podcast. All this and tons of feedback coming your way!

201 – The North Remembers

9/12/2017
More
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...

In a bonus wrap up SpoiLore episode for Game of Thrones season 7, A.Ron is joined by Kim Renfro, Senior Culture Writer for INSIDER, to discuss our thoughts on season 7 as a whole, leaks, how production spoilers impacted our coverage of this season, and what we think about the far off season 8. Be warned, at the very end of the episode we do dish a bit on the last remaining unconfirmed leak for this season, which may come up next time.

Jim and A.Ron close the books on the non-book spoiler part of our season 7 coverage of HBO's Game of Thrones. Of course, we'll be back later this week to put the SpoilLore segment to bed, and don't forget that starting next week we'll be jumping head first into our rewatch of season 2, AKA the Tyrion Lannister Golden Years. But for now, we dive into a heaping helping of feedback trying to sum up the experience of this seasons, and looking ahead to next. Regardless of when it comes back,...
