Rank #2: Season 3 Episode 5: The Golden Path

Podcast cover
Read more
In this episode, we take a look at chapters thirteen and fourteen of Children of Dune, in which Leto and Ghanima take a significant risk while seeking information, Leto succeeds in convincing his sister to support his so-called "Golden Path" for the future, we meet the young Corrino heir Farad'n in exile on Salusa Secundus, and the Preacher unexpectedly shows up to interpret Farad'n's dream - but then refuses to tell him about it. Hmm, obstinately cryptic, where have we seen that character trait before? Also, Elayne makes her first predictions for Children of Dune.
