707 - The Dragon and the Wolf

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.This podcast is sponsored by BombFell, where you can get clothes hand-picked by a stylist to fit your life.  Head over to bombfell.com/got to get $25 off your first order!This podcast is also sponsored by Sonos, Home theater for music – and podcast! – lovers.  For the first time ever, Sonos is offering the listeners of GOT, ten percent off one order of twenty five hundred dollars or less, for any product on Sonos.com.

706 - Beyond the Wall

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?This week’s podcast is sponsored by TV Time.  TV Time is an awesome companion for the Golden Age of TV, helping you manage your TV watchlist across all viewing platforms, get reminded when shows are on, react to what you watch, and interact with a community of fans.  Go to tvtime.baldmove.com and download the app for iPhone or Android!Check out this thread on Reddit if you want to see the horrifying genetic results of a Dany and Jon “union” that so many of us are clamoring for.
