Just in time for the start of season 5, Kendyl and Ryan hash out the events in A Dance with Dragons and what theories they have as well as what they expect from this season of Game of Thrones. They aren’t always in agreement, so make sure you break the ties by commenting below (or on our social media pages)!
In our first book-only Game of Thrones discussion, the hosts cover A Feast for Crows by George RR Martin in order to prep themselves for season 5. They take (too much?) pleasure in the downfall of some, hope against hope that some are still living and make predictions for the future of the series and the television show.
Regicide, patricide and uxoricide: Game of Thrones season 4 was full of artful deaths and shocking moments, but was lacking in lingering questions. While this season felt more like setting up a chess board than a murder mystery, the hosts are still excited to see where everyone ends up and what their roles will be next season!
Just in time for the start of season 4, the team gets all their thoughts out on season 1-3 of Game of Thrones while comparing it to the series by George R.R. Martin. Loads of character discussion ensues as well as talk of who everyone wants on the throne versus who might actually get there. The hosts that are farther along in their reading bite their tongues to keep from spoiling while the newbie readers habitually add ‘at this point’ to everything they say just in case.
What are your season 4 predictions? Leave them in the comments, but no spoilers!
EDITOR’S NOTE/SPOILER WARNING: Though Ryan and Sarah didn’t fully succeed in not dropping hints about what happens past where the TV show has reached, speaking as a person that has only read up to the end of book 2, I did not feel spoiled by anything they said. They mention the names of some events but don’t say what happens, and say one thing about Arya’s future path that is not surprising. We also threw in some fake spoilers and fan theories along the way, so basically just don’t trust anything you hear.
