Gabbing About Game of Thrones, S02E05: The Ghost of Harrenhal

In this week's edition of Gabbing About Game of Thrones, Steven of Race for the Iron Throne and I explore similarities between the Greyjoys and The Office, alternative uniform ideas for the Night's Watch, and try to figure out what ever happened to Emilio Estevez.  Oh ya, we also discuss this week's episode of Game of Thrones:

Entertained Organizer:
Season 2, Episode 5: The Ghost of Harrenhal
In which Renly makes a deal with the Starks then gets murdered by a smoke baby, Littlefinger convinces the Tyrrells he knows about revenge and the fine art of queenmaking, Tyrion and Cersei spend some quality time together and tell each other nothing, Lancel is a good little spy and Tyrion ponders what Jaime would do, Stannis and Davos discuss the nature of truth and future strategy, the Demon Monkey worries about his people, Theon meets his crew and then goes off book, Tywins war council goes poorly and Arya barely remembers her lessons, a girl and a man agree to balance the scales, the Night’s Watch reaches the Fist of the First Men and Samwell geeks out, Tyrion gets a chemistry lesson and steals his sister’s toys, Dragons learn to cook and Daenerys gets a dress, Qarth throws a party and warlocks are kind of creepy, Brienne gets a new boss, Bran makes a decent ruler and gets some troubling news, tales are told of Mance Rayder and Jon joins the Halfhand, Xaro makes a proposal and Jorah counters, and Arya tutors Gendry then the Tickler takes a tumble.
Race for the Iron Throne
So the credits are the same as last week.
Entertained Organizer:
I still love Harrenhal, it's my favorite they've done
Race for the Iron Throne
Yep. So we open on a scene of unusual reason and comity.
Entertained Organizer:
well, the deal really is in everybody's best interest
Race for the Iron Throne
Renly and Catelyn agree that Robb will remain as King in the North, swear a personal oath to Renly, and the two of them will fight the Lannisters together. Which is how you know it's not going to happen.
Entertained Organizer:
technically, it did happen
Race for the Iron Throne
Not going to be carried out then. Renly is murdered by his shadow-nephew, which I thought was very well done.
Entertained Organizer:
ya, no one expects a smoke monster, or the Spanish Inquisition
Race for the Iron Throne
Brienne takes out two guards with impressive dispatch. I really liked the way this was shot. Made her tower even more over everyone.
Entertained Organizer:
and she shows off some of the most impressive fighting prowess we've had so far in the show
Race for the Iron Throne
Yep.
Entertained Organizer:
and then it's time for her and Cat to flee
Race for the Iron Throne
And we get the first use of "you can't avenge X if you're dead."
Entertained Organizer:
is that really the first? it seems like that's basically half the characters motivation at this point
Race for the Iron Throne
First use in this episode - Margaery says the same thing to Loras in the next scene.
Entertained Organizer:
ah
Race for the Iron Throne
By the way, apparently the storm was real and blew the set away - which meant that filming probably got cut off. I liked the look of Stannis' fleet arriving, and we get one of the best Littlefinger scenes this season.
Entertained Organizer:
every Littlefinger scene is the best Littlefinger scene, though I frankly think it was actually a much better Margaery scene
Race for the Iron Throne
Eh. I think this scene shows his skills a bit better than in previous episode. But yes, Natalie Dormer was very good - "I don't want to be a queen; I want to be the Queen."
Entertained Organizer:
that was the exact line I was thinking of
Race for the Iron Throne
They did downplay Loras' reaction to Renly's death - in the books, he kills three of the rest of the Kingsguard in a rage. Interestingly, they have him disbelieve Brienne's involvement, which is completely different from the book.
Entertained Organizer:
well it's pretty patently absurd, she's puppy dog in love with him not psycho stalker in love
Race for the Iron Throne
Right, but in the book, Loras thinks she made a pass and got turned down.
Entertained Organizer:
I think it's a change for the better
Race for the Iron Throne
I agree. We transition to King's Landing, where Cersei and Tyrion kibitz about the death.
Entertained Organizer:
and a new conspiracy theory gets raised: Cat did it which seems like a way more plausible conspiracy to me, 1. Renly rejects Robbs offer, 2. Cat stabs him in the back
Race for the Iron Throne
That's also a theory in the book.
Entertained Organizer:
ya, I'm just saying I find it more plausible
Race for the Iron Throne
Did Tyrion make use of the laxative? I may have missed that.
Entertained Organizer:
I didn't notice it if he did
Race for the Iron Throne
Pity, I liked that bit in the books. Maybe next episode. Instead, Cersei gets all withholding about the defenses.
Entertained Organizer:
is there any reason for her to be doing that besides spite? When I first watched it I thought for a second that she was covering for the fact that Joffrey had cut her out of the loop too, but the next scene clearly disproves that
Race for the Iron Throne
Well-founded suspicion?
Entertained Organizer:
suspicion of what though?
Race for the Iron Throne
That Tyrion is trying to undermine her.
Entertained Organizer:
well ok, but that's because that's what Tywin wants to happen, Cersei just seems to be setting herself up to get smacked down by her dad who she's terrified of
Race for the Iron Throne
True, but Cersei has a complex about maintaining her political power. It's what she suffered for years to finally get her hands on. She can't help herself - she's been waiting all her life for this moment.
Entertained Organizer:
ok, so basically just self destructiveness, I was kind of hoping for more than that
Race for the Iron Throne
Self-destructiveness is the basis of her story. Now we get another scene of Tyrion smacking around Lancel verbally, which even Tyrion feels is unsporting.
Entertained Organizer:
I also love the visual of Lancel stuffed into the tiny little people mover
Race for the Iron Throne
My favorite bit is where he brings up Jaime and speculates about whether he's going to kill Lancel for cutting in on the incest action.
Entertained Organizer:
smart money says yes!
Race for the Iron Throne
Now we get a good scene between Stannis and Davos.
Entertained Organizer:
Davos' actor really is the unsung hero of this show
Race for the Iron Throne
Liam Cunningham, the Irish Jean Reno.
Entertained Organizer:
even by Stannis standards, he's kind of a dick in this scene
Race for the Iron Throne
He does give Davos the command of the navy. And I liked the theme about truth versus perception.
Entertained Organizer:
he also agrees not to take Melisandre with him to King's Landing, though it doesn't mean he wasn't a dick about it
Race for the Iron Throne
Yep. True, but that's Stannis for you.
Entertained Organizer:
and now poor Tyrion gets a nickname
Race for the Iron Throne
Yep.
Race for the Iron Throne
And we get the proof that Tyrion's handicap will ultimately limit his political future.
Entertained Organizer:
which is sad because Tyrion also proves himself to be the true champion of Team Smallfolk.....that pun was unfortunate
Race for the Iron Throne
It's the unfortunate result of medieval beliefs about disability.
Entertained Organizer:
well and also because blaming the psychotic boy king directly could get you killed, blaming the "Demonic Monkey" gives you an out on treason charges
Race for the Iron Throne
Which is a long tradition of monarchical politics - the "evil councilors" theory allows you to criticize the regime without challenging the divine right of the king.
Entertained Organizer:
exactly, though that preacher dude was also pretty clearly crossing the line with Joffrey blaming too
Race for the Iron Throne
Yes. And now we get another delicious scene of Theon getting humiliated.
Entertained Organizer:
poor Theon
Race for the Iron Throne
I'm not in a forgiving mood yet.
Entertained Organizer:
well no, but still, it's like watching the Office. Michael Scott is a terrible person, but it's still awkward to watch him humiliate himself
Race for the Iron Throne
Good analogy, although Michael Scott is well-intentioned.
Entertained Organizer:
so is Theon. They both want everyone to love them and feel like part of a family and those desires lead them to do terrible terrible things
Race for the Iron Throne
True. So does that make Dagmar Cleftjaw Dwight Schrute?
Entertained Organizer:
is he the guy at the end of this scene? If so, yes
Race for the Iron Throne
The one who helps them concoct their scheme to attack Winterfell, yes.
Entertained Organizer:
and I think that makes his sister Jan
Race for the Iron Throne
Fair enough. So...Harrenhal. I loved everything that happened here with one exception.
Entertained Organizer:
?
Race for the Iron Throne
In Harrenhal, but it's not the next scene.
Race for the Iron Throne
First we get the Lannister War Room.
Entertained Organizer:
poor Cousin Lannister
Race for the Iron Throne
He was being rather insolent. And Tywin takes no shit. He's laying down the truth, showing Robb some respect, almost discovering Arya, and having a moment over their shared philosophy about death.
Entertained Organizer:
Tywin is scary smart and Arya really should have paid better attention in class with Maester Luwin
Race for the Iron Throne
Well, House Mooton is a rather minor Riverlands house. I doubt that would be covered.
Entertained Organizer:
she struggled to try to remember it which means she must have known it at some point, and Luwin seems.....thorough
Race for the Iron Throne
True. But the Barrowtown line was a good plan B.
Entertained Organizer:
ya, Arya's smart once she knew she was going to be quizzed, she switched to a subject she knew better
Race for the Iron Throne
And she actually stared down Tywin! I don't think anyone else ever did that.
Entertained Organizer:
maybe Tyrion? No, probably not
Race for the Iron Throne
So now she runs into Jaqen Hagar, who joined the Lannisters. Don't remember how.
Entertained Organizer:
killed a dude, took his clothes?
Race for the Iron Throne
What did you think of this scene?
Entertained Organizer:
I liked it. Arya's pissed, and Jaqen calls her out on it
Race for the Iron Throne
Yeah.
Entertained Organizer:
they're both doing what they need to do to survive
Race for the Iron Throne
Well, what Jaqen is doing is harder to figure out. Given his skills, I don't think he was going involuntarily with the Night's Watch.
Entertained Organizer:
I hadn't thought of that though really we don't know what his skills are yet, but he does seem competent enough to get out of a wood cage
Race for the Iron Throne
It was a metal cage, unless you're referring to the Harrenhal pens.
Entertained Organizer:
I thought it was wood but this is a more pointless digression than last weeks about who would win in a fight Jaime or Batman (Batman)
Race for the Iron Throne
Now we get to the bit that pissed me off. Arya choosing the Tickler.
Entertained Organizer:
is it just because it spoils that future scene from the book?
Race for the Iron Throne
Yes. AKA, my favorite Arya scene.
Entertained Organizer:
this show has lots of awesome scenes, they'll make up for it, I have faith and he was a logical pick for her
Race for the Iron Throne
They can probably transfer the scene to Polliver.
Entertained Organizer:
and there you go. Samwell with a schoolboy crush annoying or not annoying yet?
Race for the Iron Throne
Nah, I liked his geeking out. It also gave Dolorous Edd something to play against.
Entertained Organizer:
don't get me wrong, I like Dolorous Edd, but honestly I don't get why everyone is so obsessed with him
Race for the Iron Throne
He's one of the few funny characters in the series.
Entertained Organizer:
if you ignore Tyrion and the funniest character in television history: Hodor. By the way, that reminds me what's the count?
Race for the Iron Throne
On Hodors? Lost track, I think we get one this episode.
Entertained Organizer:
for shame, you swore an oath. Oathbreaker
Race for the Iron Throne
I'll fulfill my vow next week. Anyway, we get to see the fist of the first men which is amazing.
Entertained Organizer:
it kind of looks like a bunch of rocks sticking out of the snow
Race for the Iron Throne
True, but the overall scenery is amazing.
Entertained Organizer:
oh ya
Race for the Iron Throne
Our first glimpse of Iceland.
Entertained Organizer:
it's a gorgeous location, though apparently Mighty Ducks 2 lied to me. They said that Greenland was covered in ice, but Iceland was nice….of course they also made Iceland to be more terrifying than the USSR so parts of that movie are questionable
Race for the Iron Throne
Parts of Iceland are quite nice, but this ain't that.
Entertained Organizer:
I still expected more from Emilio Estevez, I don't know why
Race for the Iron Throne
He's just lucky that Charlie did worse.
Entertained Organizer:
that.......isn't really an achievement
Race for the Iron Throne
Better than being the disappointing child.
Entertained Organizer:
also while Charlie is more of a failure at life, he is also worth like eleventy billion dollars while I'm fairly certain that I saw Emelio Estevez working at a carwash
Race for the Iron Throne
Charlie earned that much, but I imagine he pissed most of that away. Ok, back to Game of Thrones. So we get the arrival of the Halfhand.
Entertained Organizer:
so can you explain to me how exactly the lookout den they're going to go kill hasn't already noticed the 300 Nights Watch guys all dressed in black in the snow just chilling at the Fist of the First Men?
Race for the Iron Throne
Look, the black uniforms make no sense and never have. You just have to suspend disbelief.
Entertained Organizer:
well they do from an intimidation standpoint, the Night's Watch doesn't care if the wildlings can see them coming....except they apparently do
Race for the Iron Throne
What would make sense is if the Night's Watch wore double-sided clothing. White for day, Black for night.
All I'm saying is the Night's Watch
would probably be better off if they
dressed like this.
Entertained Organizer:
like a Batman action figure?
Race for the Iron Throne
Or like a reversible coat?
Entertained Organizer:
....worn by a Batman action figure?
Race for the Iron Throne
Ok....this batman thing is getting a bit much. (Now I say it?)
Entertained Organizer:
Hahaha, fair enough
Race for the Iron Throne
Ok, so what did you think of Quorin Halfhand? He kind of reminded me of British army officers who went native back during the Empire.
Entertained Organizer:
I don't know a lot of British Army officers who went native back during the Empire, but that sounds right
Race for the Iron Throne
Think Lawrence of Arabia.
Entertained Organizer:
will you still do these recaps with me if I confess that I've not actually seen Lawrence of Arabia? or the Godfather movies, but that seems less relevant
Race for the Iron Throne
...You're on probation until you've gotten that done. Seriously, some of the best movies ever made.
Entertained Organizer:
I'm not proud of it or anything, it just never happened
Race for the Iron Throne
The only other thing about this scene - once for rangers returning, twice for wildlings....
Entertained Organizer:
Jon is pretty whiney
Race for the Iron Throne
He does smile a bit when he gets picked to go with the Halfhand. I bet he writes about it in his diary.
Entertained Organizer:
since joining the Night's Watch he's done exactly one thing right and everything else is failure and he keeps acting like he's owed something and he's being handed Command on a silver platter anyway
Race for the Iron Throne
Well, he hasn't failed much either. He just mostly mopes.
Entertained Organizer:
he tried to break is oath, he was a dick to his brothers, he was pissed off at being picked for Command instead of ranging, he mouthed off to Craster then followed him into the woods, what hasn't he screwed up?
Race for the Iron Throne
He protected Sam, trained up the rest of the recruits, and saved the Commander's life.
Entertained Organizer:
I still think on balance he's been a negative except for the Commander Mormont thing
Race for the Iron Throne
I see it more of a wash. So, the Guild of Alchemists.
Entertained Organizer:
are creepy
Entertained Organizer:
I did love the blood rider plotting how to steal that statue though
Race for the Iron Throne
Getting ahead of yourself. First of all, the Wisdom Hallayne is played by Roy Detrice.
Race for the Iron Throne
Who voiced all the audiobooks, winning the Guiness world record in the process.
Entertained Organizer:
for longest audiobook recording?
Race for the Iron Throne
And most characters voiced by one person I think.
Entertained Organizer:
live and learn
Entertained Organizer:
I will confess all the scenes in Qarth have blurred together in my head. ok, so what happens in this Qarth scene?
Race for the Iron Throne
Wait.
Entertained Organizer:
we skipped over Tyrion finding out just how big the stockpile is
Race for the Iron Throne
Bronn gives a great dissertation on the shortcomings of medieval napalm too. Now Qarth: Dany teaches her dragon how to eat - turns out they only eat tartare.
Entertained Organizer:
which both makes sense and is delicious
Race for the Iron Throne
I liked Irri and Doreah's passive-aggressive gab session. And that Dany is suspicious of Daxos, even enough to send out Doreah to "make men happy."
Entertained Organizer:
I tried to figure out a joke about the Secret Service, but I'm giving up
Race for the Iron Throne
So now we get David Lynch's Garden Party.
Entertained Organizer:
ya, what was the deal with the lady in the gimp mask?
Race for the Iron Throne
She's Quaithe, a seeress from Asshai. And originally that's supposed to be a lacquered wooden mask. My guess is that, like most solid masks, it inhibited speech, so they went with the segmented number.
Entertained Organizer:
makes sense
Race for the Iron Throne
So we get the quite funny scene with the Dothraki scoping out the statue.
Entertained Organizer:
him saying that of course he wouldn't steal it....until they were leaving, was probably my favorite line of the episode
Race for the Iron Throne
What did you think of the Warlock?
Entertained Organizer:
perfectly creepy
Race for the Iron Throne
I thought that effect was really well done.
Entertained Organizer:
and I'm glad they didn't overdo the blue lips it could have looked really corny really easily
Race for the Iron Throne
Very simply too. All they needed was a body double and soft focus. I thought the actor did a great job of being fake-nice and then really scary. You could just see this malevolence right under the surface.
Entertained Organizer:
and Xaro immediately tries to undercut him, "soft in the brain" and all that
Race for the Iron Throne
Yes. I really like this version of Xaro Xhoan Daxos. And he immediately pegs Jorah's crush, which Dany's in denial about.
Entertained Organizer:
which is kind of ridiculous since they have so much chemistry in the show
Race for the Iron Throne
True. So Jorah gets warned by Quaithe. And we get a nice parallel - wildfyre is fire given form, dragons are fire made flesh.
Entertained Organizer:
I missed that
Race for the Iron Throne
Now we get Brienne's job interview. And you can actually see the shadow looking like Stannis if you freeze-frame it at the beginning of the episode.
Entertained Organizer:
I vaguely noticed the bald head shape
Race for the Iron Throne
And the face. I thought this scene was beautifully acted, very quite but very intense. And I liked the bit about a woman's courage.

Entertained Organizer:
agreed, though Brienne seemed a little quick to sign on, her entire world just got destroyed. Though I suppose that could make her eager to find a new one
Race for the Iron Throne
It has to do with her self-conception. She sees herself as a true knight. And a true knight needs a lord. Without that, she basically has to die killing Stannis.
Entertained Organizer:
Trying. Barring radically different circumstances, Brienne's not getting within miles of Stannis, same as Loras
Race for the Iron Throne
Yeah. So now we get to Winterfell. Bran's holding down the fort, and Luwin seems strangely unconcerned that Rickon's recessing into a purely feral state.
Entertained Organizer:
recessing implies there was ever a point where Rickon wasn't in a purely feral state
Race for the Iron Throne
Season 1, Episode 1. He seemed to be enjoying watching Bran fail to hit the target.
Entertained Organizer:
I think this scene of him smashing nuts into dust is longer than the rest of his screen time combined, he just keeps hitting them
Race for the Iron Throne
He's just trying to release his pure elemental fear and anger.
Entertained Organizer:
see when you put it that way, it seems wrong to laugh about the emotionally crippled and neglected 4 year old
Race for the Iron Throne
Yes. Yes it does.
Race for the Iron Throne
But you're doing it anyway, aren't you?
Entertained Organizer:
Yes, he just keeps smashing the table even when there aren't any nuts left. I want a spinoff of him and the Arryn kid having adventures
Race for the Iron Throne
That's sick, dude.
Entertained Organizer:
maybe in my version they understand each others pain and help each other heal and grow?
Race for the Iron Throne
Anyway...Bran orders all the Stark men to Torrhen's Square, because of course you should ignore eerie prophetic visions.
Entertained Organizer:
to be fair, you really should. If anyone reading this is having eerie prophetic visions, ignore them and go to a doctor. Also has he had one about Torrhen's Square?
Race for the Iron Throne
It's more about leaving Winterfell defenseless at a time when you know it's in danger.
Entertained Organizer:
I just don't know if "I had a bad dream" works as a justification for abandoning your bannermen
Race for the Iron Throne
I'm not saying abandon them. I'm saying send 100. Theon's ship only had like 10 guys on it.
Entertained Organizer:
they don't know that, that's why it's tragic. It was the "right" call, it just is going to end badly like Renly siding with the Starks instead of bending his knee to Stannis. Logical decision, but unforseen baby smoke monsters meant it ended badly. It's like your thing about Ned not being an idiot, of course if Luwin and Bran knew what the audience knew they'd never do this, but with the information they had, this was the right call
Race for the Iron Throne
I agree. Good argument. Well, Luwin questions sending all the men.
Entertained Organizer:
True, though he drops it pretty quick when Bran points out the bannermen need to see that Winterfell still protects them
Race for the Iron Throne
Yeah. So....as much as I like Osha and Bran together, I find it annoying when she ducks the question about the three eyed raven.
Entertained Organizer:
ya, it's the show going really out of it's way to throw a spotlight on it, and it's just odd. The show doesn't really spoon feed the audience anything else and then we get these scenes that are basically "if you didn't notice, Bran is having weird dreams, maybe those weird dreams are important HINT HINT"
Race for the Iron Throne
It's more the drip-drip-drip of it; they've been teasing this for nearly two seasons now.
Entertained Organizer:
ya, that too, it's really slow compared to a lot of the other plots, other characters have been introduced, had their arcs and died in the time Osha has been hinting at whatever's up with Bran
Race for the Iron Throne
Yeah. Anyway, so now Halfhand reveals his plot, to take out Mance Rayder, who I'm glad they're explaining the backstory of.
Entertained Organizer:
normally I don't like exposition dumps, but this one was really necessary. Mance was a Night's Watchmen and he knows their tricks, so they stand even less of a chance against his army than they would just being horribly outnumbered by him (which they still are)
Race for the Iron Throne
It was necessary, because we're going to have to be interested in him when he arrives. And we've got a huge cast that people are having trouble remembering already. This is an interesting change from the book, btw. So Jon gets the go-ahead, with Sam as ever acting as one of the few humane people in Westeros. Which marks him out for suffering.
Entertained Organizer:
pretty much
Race for the Iron Throne
So now Dany and Daxos talk. And it's a great scene about what they want, why they want it, and the nature of conquest.
Entertained Organizer:
also hints at Daxos views on marriage: marriage means you get half
Race for the Iron Throne
He believes in pre-nup. By the way - Valryian stone is not a thing.
Entertained Organizer:
haha, you do know that Valryian steel isn't actually a thing either right?
Race for the Iron Throne
Within the context of the fictional world we're dealing with. I'm just saying.
Entertained Organizer:
fair enough, the point is no one is getting through that door
Race for the Iron Throne
Which is a great way of getting out of having to show his treasure room.
Entertained Organizer:
I hadn't thought of that, but you're right, though you know we'll see it at some point
Race for the Iron Throne
So now we get a wonderful scene with Dany and Jorah.
Entertained Organizer:
which again, I wonder if they realized they were going to have such good chemistry when they cast them because it's vaguely problematic from a plot standpoint
Race for the Iron Throne
I think it's the Iain Glenn Dilemma. Too good not to cast, too hot to quite fit
Entertained Organizer:
I am not familiar
Race for the Iron Throne
I just made it up.
Entertained Organizer:
haha, you can't cite a capital letter thing and not have it be a real thing
Race for the Iron Throne
So Jorah argues for going your own way, taking the road less traveled.
Entertained Organizer:
his plan also sounds like a really good way to die: "we'll go back and in the midst of the civil war you will somehow recruit an army and no one will kill you instantly"
Race for the Iron Throne
Aegon the Conqueror pulled it off.
Entertained Organizer:
his dragons were bigger, and didn't he actually have a (small) army?
Race for the Iron Throne
He had a tiny army. She could land quite easily in Dorne, wait until everyone's worn out and her dragons are grown.
Entertained Organizer:
Jorah's plan still seems more like "I really don't want you to marry Xaro because I'm in love with you" than actually sound military advice
Race for the Iron Throne
It's a bit of both. I did think he was on to something when he said that she was someone who both can and should rule.
Entertained Organizer:
ya, I'm not saying he hasn't fallen for her for good reasons just that he's not giving her objective advice
Race for the Iron Throne
And Daxos is?
Entertained Organizer:
of course not, but his plan is more likely to succeed. Xaro also does point out that Dany isn't in it entirely for what's best for her people, she's still a Targaryan, she still has the urge to conquer
Race for the Iron Throne
True. She has both sides. So...back to Harrenhal. And the internet explodes as Gendry takes his shirt off. It's quite impressive the level of attention paid at high volumes to one man's abs.
Entertained Organizer:
eh, no less creepy than the attention I'm sure has been paid to Dany's breasts
Race for the Iron Throne
I wasn't saying it was creepy. I'm glad the lovers of men out there got some fanservice that wasn't Theon or Pycelle. It's been a while since Episode 1.
Entertained Organizer:
I did like that Jaqen's plan was just to shove him out the window, then watch on from another window
Race for the Iron Throne
It was a bit more than that. You don't get head turned around 180 degrees from that kind of fall.
Entertained Organizer:
I somehow missed that
Race for the Iron Throne
It took me two watches to catch it.
Entertained Organizer:
still, when a guy goes out a window, you probably shouldn't stand right next to the window if you don't want to be considered a suspect
Race for the Iron Throne
One last thing, I'll be returning to Streaming Garage soon for the YouTube thing, and I'll be doing a guest appearance on the Boiled Leather Audio Hour.
Entertained Organizer:
That’s awesome!  For more info on that, and links when it posts, go to Race for the Iron Throne.

  1. Gotta say, I was quite happy about the fanservice for the male-preferring audience, too.

    Love reading these. Get to hear very different points of view regarding basically every plot point, and the difference in opinion among the fans is one of the best parts about ASOIAF. Its moral ambiguity is what makes it so compelling.

  2. Now you guys do know what Jaqen is?
    The viewers don't know he is really the most dangerous man in Harrenhal.
