Episode 22 has landed and it's Game of Thrones related again as Adam is still playing too much Playstation again. It could be work related, but it sounds more adventurous if I pretend he does what he wants rather than acts like a responsible person. :-)

Anyway, Charmaine joins me once again for the discussing of the first half of season three.

Music by Jez Aditore - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRd4ARUQkbQ

DISCUSSION POINTS:

- The Queen’s continued quest for power.

- Our love and hate relationship with Stannis. Is there a devil and an angel on his shoulders?

- How Stannis’ story changes from the book and TV series.

- Storm’s End and Dragon Stone (I get the castles mixed up sorry, but you’ll understand).

- I sussed out what Theon did to the two boys correctly.

- Littlefinger vs Varys.

- Dany vs slavery.

- End of episode music.

- There is never a good sword fight at the right time!

- Nitpicking at the introduction of new characters with significant actors.

 

We quickly discuss a TV series that I’ve introduced to Charmaine (Deep Space Nine), the first five episodes to be exact. But also we touch on how it has aged as a series. It has been 20 years now.

 

Then we get back to GoTh discussion with our stand out moments from the series.

 

- Finding out who the King beyond the wall is.

- The introduction of the white walkers.

- Theon’s toerture.

- Mormontas death.

- Margery and her relationship with Joffery.

- More female characters as the series progresses.

- Dragons and people’s lack of reaction to them.

(The Podcast of Winterfell)

 

Charmaine joins me again for the end of season two of Game of Thrones. We discuss here the last four episodes. 

 

In this episode we discuss:

 

Sansa’s period and can the Hound smell period blood?

 

The Queen gives a hard dose of reality to those she speaks to.

 

Great Jamie Lannister scenes.

 

Tywin is a man I can respect.

 

Sex clothes. I can predict when a sex scene is going to happen.

 

Theon Greyjoy and his burning of two boys. I’m confused or am I correct and just don’t know it?

 

Admiration for Stannis.

 

Can the Stark kids go home? Where will their storylines take them. I make predictions.

 

How was Winterfell sacked?

 

The Direwolves and uncanny valley.

 

The kidnapping of dragons.

 

The battle of Blackwater. A quick maths calculation of men and ships and a massive nickpick of writer’s convenience.

 

Tyrion and his fall from grace after Blackwater.
