    My girlfriend and I have been rewatching all three seasons, one episode every day, so it lined up perfectly with these podcasts. We’re really enjoying hearing you talk us through the season and getting excited for the new episodes!

    Harrenhal may be creepy and half ruined, but it’s literally the largest castle in Westeros. “Of the castle’s five towers, the shortest is half again as high as the tallest one in Winterfell”. Plus it’s in a very central position with prime farmland, formerly the seat of people who ruled over all the riverlands. So in Monopoly terms, it’s definitely on the last street.

    Combined with his soon-to-be wife ruling the Vale, Littlefinger holds one of the most powerful positions in Westeros.

    Season 3 storyline power rankings:

    1. Jamie and Brienne
    2. King’s Landing (about 40 different storylines in here)
    3. Dany
    4. Arya (alone with the Hound)

    5. Jon/Ygritte
    6. Davos (by himself)
    7. Robb/Catelyn/Roose and co.
    8. Theon
    9. Arya (with the Brotherhood)

    10. Sam/Gilly
    11. Stannis and Melisandre
    Dead last: Bran and his boring friends (in fairness, it’s worth noting that Bran has just 3 chapters in the whole of the 3rd book so there’s very little material to work from).

    Shoutout to Shae as the worst actor on the show, by the way.

    Re The Blackfish: In an argument with his brother(Hoster Tully, Cat’s father) many years ago, Hoster referred to Brynden as “the black goat of the Tully herd”, Brynden pointed out that the Tully sigil is a fish and from then on adopted the name Blackfish.

    The Bear and The Maiden Fair – The Hold Steady

    For the record, Alexis is way hotter than Talisa.

    Just watched in the archives and just letting you know that the ending isn’t fixed if you were still planning on doing that. Loving the show.

    • Snazzy Bean

      I hope they leave it as is. It was pretty funny.

    I feel like the turning point in the Stark/Lannister conflict was when the Tyrell’s joined the Lannisters. The Lannisters already had significant advantages over the Starks in gold and manpower and of the 7 great houses the Tyrell’s would rank 2nd in gold and 1st in manpower. So even with the addition of the Tully host the Starks are still severely out-manned at this point.

    Plus Stannis is no longer capable of harassing the Lannisters as he once was.

    The White Walkers aren’t zombies. The people they kill become zombies. The White Walkers are much closer to vampires.
