  • TrentC

    Very humorous recap, made me laugh multiple times.

    Did Tyrion say that they would hold back the Dothraki and Unsullied armies because they were foreigners and that would bad for the Dany Brand? ™ So the houses that sided with the Lannisters would feel better fighting and getting beaten by more familiar looking enemies??

    Have to address the Greyworm love scene. The Unsullied are castrated which involves losing the berries while retaining the twig. Couldn’t the elevator still work without delivering the passengers?

    Enjoyed the episode and the podcast, thanks.

    • Brendan Fitzpatrick

      Hold them back from attacking KL, and instead is going to use the Unsullied and Dothraki to take out Casterly Rock and destroy the Lannister Homebase. A bold move from Tyrion. I think he miscalculated tho, thinking Cercei couldnt fight a war on Two Fronts. He didn’t know about Euron though.

      • J-me not Hi-me

        Tyrion was also smart enough to predict exactly how Cersei was going spin things; to wit “this is not a returning Queen, it’s an army of foreign invaders, so you must break your loyalty to House Tyrell to protect the realm.” So if it’s Westerosi soldiers laying siege to Kings Landing, her argument looks invalid.

      • TrentC

        Splitting the force and attacking from two sides is a good move. I got the undertone from Tyrion’s planning comment that part one of the attack would eliminate a racial element. Very interesting how optics would figure into winning the hearts and minds of the people from King’s Landing.

        You bring up a good point about Tyrion/Dany/Yara being unaware of Euron. The guy has 1000 ships, I’m surprised Varys didn’t know about the huge fleet.

        • Dave Czech

          it’s not about people from King’s landing, it’s about hearts of noblemen with armies. He hasn’t 1000 ships and also they know about him, every ship travel is risky

          • TrentC

            It’s about the people from King’s Landing along with the Lords and armies that will fight for Cersei. I used the number 1000 as a quip to illustrate he has a large fleet. I didn’t actually count the ships onscreen…

            And you say Tyrion, Dany and Yara knew about Euron’s fleet (“also they know about him”..from your post). Really? Yara and Theon seemed surprised.

        • Dave Czech

          You didn’t understand that armies in Westeros would rather join Cersei than Dothraki, that’s why he didn’t want Dothraki attack KL.

          • TrentC

            Tyrion mentioned that the armies siding with Cersei would be averse to seeing ‘foreigners’ (from the show) landing on their shores. I mentioned a racial element, which is the same thing. Of course the armies would rather side with Cersei over Dothraki lol…I understood the scene fine, thanks.

  • mass_mota

    I really enjoyed how the episode showed the contrasting motivations
    behind the two best schemers of the series (now that Tyrion has a more
    formalized role) Littlefinger and Varys. On the one hand you have
    Littlefinger who will stop at nothing to get Sansa while Varys reveals
    he deceives and manipulates for the interests of the common people.
    Really don’t have a good feeling about Sansa and Littlefinger left at
    Winterfell though…

  • Officer Christine

    No means no, Missandei.

    She sullied an Unsullied which I think may mean that, like Theon, he will not be able to be her protector.

  • BeetlePimp

    They tried to repeal and replace slavery immediately and it didn’t work. Then Tyrion came along and tried repealing it without replacing it for 7 year into the future and that caused all kinds of problems. Slavery was a mess but nobody talked about it before Danny got there. They should have let it fail and blame the masters for it.

  • SaraMadridista

    I hate it when show tend to do something to help to give another character illogical plot, I mean the way Tyrion explained that plan made no sense to me, Dany just simply agreeing with it, also didnt make sense to me.

    I mean let’s say plan worked and Dany is on throne, what would she do with her army of foreigners? send them away, I mean they didnt think this thru before going to Dragonstone. I mean, I mean if Jon Snow join forces with them aka North, I mean Dany has the majority, the minority can live with foreigners coming in and if she claims to be the Queen the show has pictured her to be, then I guess she will be ok?

    Arya, Little Finger reunion in castle black would be amazing, I mean I totally can see her killing him being Sansa, not that I want him dead at all.

    Meli is going to die.

    • Stephen Fishbach

      I totally agree about the Tyrion plan. Incredibly frustrating! She’s spent 6 seasons building an army, and now she’s like “eh, let’s send them on a side quest.”

      • Dave Czech

        if she sent Dothraki against Westerosi, all Tyrell’s army and other armies would join Cersei, it’s not strategic decision

      • SaraMadridista

        She has dragons, DRAGONS, it is so frustrating.
        Also, she is kinda giving them time to think about defense against dragons too, ugh.

        • Nodetails

          There is a point to having it be a “Westerosi” victory rather than an “outsider” victory :

          If Dani wins with an outsiders being the brunt force of her army, she has 2 big problems :

          – issues attaining allegiance from people within Westeros. Cersei talked about the Dothraki being barbarians, which the lords seemed to agree with. Dani primarily associating her victory as a result of the efforts of the barbaric army will make it a lot harder to earn true loyal peace from those lords.

          – issues with the outside armies wanting to take credit. This problem still persists with Dorne and the Tyrells being her brunt force too, but if the army isn’t hers, but someone elses’ that establishes the victory, and particularly if that “someone else” is powerful, they will want credit, and Khaleesi could have a problem here too when it comes to diplomacy in the future.

          From my viewpoint, Tyrion wants to do this with as little bloodshed as possible, which is ideal if he wants to put Dani on the throne with as little enemies as possible while at the same time making it a lot easier to earn peaceful loyalty from the people w/o resorting to fear-based methods, which could inspire antagonism in the future.

          As for “giving them time to think about defense against dragons,” it takes time to develop battle plans, and, considering her dragon was wounded earlier, going in there head on could get her dragons killed anyway. Furthermore, considering Cersei probably won’t surrender w/o fighting, a head on charge is going to get a lot of people killed, which Tyrion is clearly trying to avoid.

          And, additionally, we have to assume the scientist has had the information about the wounded dragon for awhile considering the wound happened 2 seasons ago. He’s probably spent a lot of “unaired” time working on this project, and Khaleesi in the meanwhile was dealing with her own issues like getting kidnapped and stuff. There’s nothing here suggesting any of the above characters are acting foolishly w.r.t the current subject matter.

          • SaraMadridista

            Sorry, but Dotharki think of Danny as their queen, so this is her army and her people, so I disagree respectively, these are her people.

            Tyrell and Drone are westerosis that are more than ok with Danny’s army, Cersei has only allegiance of three houses according to Jamie in first episode, take the throne, then think about politics, I mean these “outsiders” are going no where, sooner or later they are going to be in king’s landing because these are people who Danny rule.

            I mean why is siege and people dying from hunger better? fight them and get it over with. They are not even approaching other houses in the land asking them to join forces, the excuse that these are outsiders that shouldnt be here is the only thing in Cersei’s hand so far, show needed a plot where Cersei can come on top for while, for this battle to stretch out for this season it seems, you dont spend 6 seasons building up army, being build up as Queen of people to just sit back and let Euron kill off one of alley without no sense of where even he get the information that they were there, without being about plot.

          • Nodetails

            Sorry, but Dotharki think of Danny as their queen, so this is her army and her people, so I disagree respectively, these are her people.

            …which creates its own problems considering the Lords of Westeros see “her people” as savages and barbarians, and thus her as Queen of those savages and barbarians. Earning respect from those Lords in the future, unless she does it through fear (which means bye bye chance of peace while she reigns), will then become a lingering problem for her if she does take the Iron Throne.

            Winning the main seige using armies respected by the people and lords of Westeros would help calm this problem immensely. “Its not barbarians taking the kingdom, it’s people we know and have associated with, even if they’re our enemies.”

            Tyrell and Drone are westerosis that are more than ok with Danny’s army, Cersei has only allegiance of three houses according to Jamie in first episode, take the throne, then think about politics, I mean these “outsiders” are going no where, sooner or later they are going to be in king’s landing because these are people who Danny rule.

            How you take control matters if you have options. Keep in mind, Dani lost some of those options when Euron hit her Dornish & Iron Island allies. She might not have a choice in the future but to move in with her “outsiders.”

            That being said, how you take control matters, namely regarding how much of the pie your allies are going to try to claim credit for, what the people think of you when you take control, etc.

            How Dani, if she desires, tries to assimilate the Dothraki with the normal people in Westeros is a different problem. Right now, the point is that if she rides in with the ‘barbaric’ Dothraki and takes over King’s Landing killing a ton of people with those ‘barbarians,’ she’s going to have a really hard time earning peace later.

            I mean why is siege and people dying from hunger better? fight them and get it over with.

            Morale. It’s much better to have your opponents weak and starving and potentially complaining to the people in power about not having food than to fight you strong and full of national pride. This will make it much harder to control her soldiers and people, especially considering how disliked she is at the moment.

            you dont spend 6 seasons building up army, being build up as Queen of people to just sit back and let Euron kill off one of alley without no sense of where even he get the information that they were there, without being about plot.

            Dani has done more in 6 seasons than build up her army ; she’s had to deal with her own enemies and being kidnapped and trying to control Meereen and other stuff. The army was just one part of the puzzle.

            As for Euron, the show had built him up as a captain that’s pirated and seen all the seas. And, IIRC, he and Cersei had predicted Khaleesi would be at Dragonstone. I’m not seeing anything here suggesting the writers screwed up. But, I’m not an expert in Naval Warfare, so I’m not sure how reasonable or unreasonable it is for him to surprise the Dornish in the manner that he did. Maybe Theon’s crew could have spotted him much sooner even with the fog, but maybe Euron is just a better Naval strategist with better tools. Overall, I’m fine with it.

    • Dave Czech

      she will definitely send Dothraki away, it’s not illogical, North will never join Dany’s forces, they will stay in North

      • SaraMadridista

        Ok, They are definitely not joining Cersei’s side so, that just them being there neutral that’s still in Dany’s favor.

  • Rob Punton

    Honestly, i love you guys on survivor know it alls. It’s fun, irreverent and entertaining. But this… this is your best work. Podcasting on GOT together. Love it. Keep it coming. 🙂

    • Stephen Fishbach

      Thank you, Rob! I really appreciate that!

      • XmanIce

        I totally agree! I love how you talked through Dani’s crazy plan to take over Kings Landing.

  • GeekFurious

    This episode is top 3… worst… plotted… episodes… of the series. Should be studied in film school as an example of plot contrivance.

    • Brendan Fitzpatrick

      I do agree somewhat. the show is really getting in to the territory that the Characters are only doing things because “the plot needs them to do this thing, or be here at this exact moment”. I get that that’s part of story telling, but they’re starting to sacrifice the great work they did up to the last couple seasons in building the characters and their own motivations. They’re starting to contradict their own narratives they’ve set up for how a Character behaves. Tyrion and Jaime are the worst care of this the last 2 seasons.

    • SaraMadridista

      to some extent, even the dialogue was poorly written, it is like not on same level of GOT

  • Brendan Fitzpatrick

    I agree with Stephen and Rob, what the hell happened to the Tyrion we used to know? Did season 4, really mess him up that badly that now he’s just an idiot making mistake after mistake?

    • Brendan Fitzpatrick

      Character consistency and reasoning has certainly taken a back seat at points in these later seasons, especially when it comes to The Lannisters. Tyrion, and Jaime .

      • Stephen Fishbach

        I agree, it seems like they’re so focused on hitting their plot points within this given timeframe that it’s overwhelming everything else.

        • Brendan Fitzpatrick

          I’m enjoying what they’re doing a lot most of the time, so i’m not saying i hate show (GF may disagree) but it’s immensely frustrating to think about after the initial thrill of the episode is gone.

  • Nancy Wright Greenshields

    I’m disappointed that nobody discussed the fact that Varys failed in his main reason for being. What’s the point of having this amazing omniscient spy-master if he can’t find the King of the Iron Islands and his humongous fleet? Having returned to Westeros wouldn’t Yara and Theon been at least a tiny bit curious as to where their murderous uncle was? He should never have been allowed to sneak up on Yara’s ships.

  • SamMuray

    Can’t believe show is still wasting time on Grey Worm-Misssandei crap :s That aside didn’t mind the episode.

    Looking forward to the Theon Dive … No Terri Schwartz this season?

  • Dave Czech

    I think Stephen and Rob didn’t understand that Varys hired killers to murder Daeny, he served Robert against Targaryens and many times changed sides, i think it’s reasonable for Daeny to ask him about it. She doesn’t know him, he wasn’t in Meereen with her.

    • Stephen Fishbach

      Hey Dave – Rob and I explicitly talked about that! (I even made the joke, “if you had hired killers to kill me, I wouldn’t be podcasting with you.”) Then Rob mentioned, via a comment from Facebook, that it made sense for this conversation to take place, as it was important for Dany & Varys to have this conversation and establish trust.

      Thank you for tuning in and for commenting!

  • J-me not Hi-me

    Question: Do we think Littlefinger can go any farther then he already has? I guess his current plan is to turn Sansa against Jon, marry her and end up with power in the north and the Vale…and then what? He has NO answer to an army of Unsullied, Dothraki and Dragons.

    I feel like his time on the show is coming to an end.

  • Yark Narf

    As you guys joke/criticized about, there’s weakness in the plotting.
    – How does Cersei know Tyrion is hand of the Queen but *nobody* – not Varys, not Tryrion, not Arya – found out the North now has a king?
    – Prince or Princess? That’s pretty shady. That has to be a TV show only thing. No way Martin casually throws “or Princess” in there after all the prophecy talk.
    – A big-ass crossbow? Come on! I’m not saying it’s a dumb idea. I mean, sure, when the Lannisters fight the dragons throw some big-ass ballistas in there, that would be cool, but why this big build up and reveal for…. a fancy catapult?
    – Just cut off the grayscale and rub it with oatmeal? Come on! And how does Sam know Jorah is important anyway? Isn’t Sam supposed to be on a mission to save the entire world and he’s risking his life for Mr. Friendzone?
    – Euron ambushing Yara – somehow – in the middle of the wide wild ocean. At night no less! How does he do that? SatNav? Sonar? Aquaman? D&D rely on chance encounters more than I’d prefer.

    That said, this season is a technical achievement and looks great. So many great things paying off. I loved watching the episode. Just gotta bust some kneecaps here and there about this one. 😀

    • Stephen Fishbach

      LOL. I felt the same way. Loved the episode, but have to roll my eyes at some of the plot stuff. Great summation of all of it.

    • Nodetails

      How does Cersei know Tyrion is hand of the Queen but *nobody* – not Varys, not Tryrion, not Arya – found out the North now has a king?

      Varys has either been traveling or been really busy handling Meereen stuff this last season. There probably isn’t any real opportunity for him to get the latest info on the happenings in the North. Same with Tyrion ; he’s either been traveling or incredibly busy with other diplomatic matters.

      If Arya is behaving around other non-Lannister soldiers like she has with Hotpie, clammed up and just not willing to share info, she’s probably not opening herself up to getting any major news either. She seems more off-the grid both in how she travels and how she talks with people, so it’s reasonable she wouldn’t know about the situation in the North.

      Cersei, meanwhile, has all of Varys’ birds who are now working for that scientist. And since she hasn’t been occupied like some of the others above, even having enough time to have a painter paint a map of Westeros on her floor, it makes sense she knows more of what’s going on in the rest of the world than some of the other characters.

      Just cut off the grayscale and rub it with oatmeal? Come on! And how does Sam know Jorah is important anyway? Isn’t Sam supposed to be on a mission to save the entire world and he’s risking his life for Mr. Friendzone?

      Commander Mormont was the head of the Night’s Watch, and Sam realized that Jorah was his son after their earlier conversation. He’s essentially doing this out of respect for his former commander, and that he’s also very kind.

      Mr. Friendzone…, to Jorah’s credit, there isn’t a master PUA database or YaReally’s archive in the Middle Ages-ish time-frame this series is set in where he can pick up on some things that could ameliorate his current situation.

      • Yark Narf

        I guess? It’s *possible* Danny landed an army on strange shores w/o doing any intel… but it would be silly. Especially seeing as she has ravens.
        It’s *possible* Sam is weighing the life of a friend of a friend over the safety of humanity… but it would be silly.
        You make a good point about Arya. She could legit not know (even though she was at the Twins and privy to all of Walders intel and advisors) Still it’s Arya, so admittedly she has a lot on her mind. 😀
        It’s just more like some of those season 5 plot weaknesses where the viewer has to invent the connective tissue for the thing to make sense.
        But that said, that’s only compared to the rock-solid plot lines we’ve come to expect. It’s still the greatest thing ever, of course!

        • Nodetails

          I guess? It’s *possible* Danny landed an army on strange shores w/o doing any intel… but it would be silly. Especially seeing as she has ravens.

          She is at sea when Jon is becoming King of the North ; when she sends out a raven, the ship’s position will be different when the raven returns. How does the raven find the ship while it’s traveling at sea?

          It’s *possible* Sam is weighing the life of a friend of a friend over the safety of humanity… but it would be silly.

          It might be silly for you or me. But this is Sam : someone who has shown to care very much for people he likes and respects. And he made it clear that he really respected Jorah’s father and has made it clear he wants to help Jorah out of that respect. There’s nothing Sam is doing suggesting he is acting out of character here.

        • TrentC

          That’s how I felt. Despite the seemingly multiple oversights of ‘how did they, knowing/not knowing’, even a bad ep of this series is good stuff.

          I didn’t mind the giant crossbow because I felt they never had a weapon made to deal with that sort of threat before. So it was special to them, maybe not so special for us. Lodging a giant bolt into a dragon skull must have given them some sense of comfort.

          Regarding the grayscale I think it was like Stephen mentioned, there’s some ointment or salve involved that’s the real key to healing. Your oatmeal comment made me lol and change the breakfast routine to Life cereal now.

          I’m onboard and agree with most of the criticisms. Because the show has been so good, we tend to hold it to higher standard. I liked the little moments…Arya trading pie crust tips with Hot Pie, Sansa shutting up and saying – Oh, when Jon tells her he’s going and she will be Lord(ess) of Winterfell.

          As super fans, we all know they gotta rein in this juggernaut of a series within 13 eps. They used to have the luxury of two or three seasons to move one piece on the board to the next square. Now they have to either tie up a cacophony of loose ends or try to give us bullet point resolutions on a small host of ideas. I’ll liken it to the final season of Breaking Bad. Some felt the bow tied on that was too neat, others felt it was the perfect final season. I think/hope GoT will make some good decisions on the journey to the end.

          I had a stray thought about the possible spin off series and Holy Syrio Forel! …there’s a lot of potential to look at.

        • Austin

          I’m guessing Danni and Tyrion have been focusing so hard on kings Landing that they haven’t been focusing or getting as much information about other pieces of the kingdom such as the north.

          Yea it would be silly for someone to do what Sam is, but then again humanity is silly and I believe a good amount of people would do what Sam is if they were in his shoes. Besides it’s not like he completely abandoned saving humanity. He’s found some answers. He should probably be trying harder, but at least he has accomplished something.

          Definitely see you points tho. I’m willing to be forgiving of some of the skeptical things as this is nearing the end and they don’t have as much time to show or explain everything. So long as I can follow the story I’m happy.

    • SaraMadridista

      MTE, how did Euron know about Yara?? like ok the scene was awesome, but all battles in this show has a build up to it, not this one, unless Euron in middle of the sea, saw some kind of light, was like let’s go check out the light coming out there, oh this is my nephew and niece, am in mood to fight them.

    • Eh most of this you can explain, but Euron finding Yara’s fleet is a big leap. I looked at my wife and said, “How did he know she was there?” We speculated that maybe there is a leak in Danny’s camp , though we couldn’t figure out who would have the motive for that.

      • Yark Narf

        That’s possible and would be a satisfying explanation. Danys warning to Varys about betrayal would be foreshadowing to that. Given a departure time and a destination, Yara’s fleet could certainly be located and captured or destroyed.
        Even with that, how it went down is pretty slap-dash. I don’t expect a “master and commander” style cat and mouse chase for 90 minutes but at least some recognition of the realities of naval combat.
        This is supposed to be the show that dispenses with the typical unrealistic TV solutions to plotting.

        • Agreed, the last couple of seasons have suspended reality especially when it comes to how long it takes for someone to get from Point A to Point B. A lot of long distances being covered in a short time, this feels like another example of that.

    • namuch

      Agree with most of your points except the one regarding Sam. That just seems like something Sam would do regardless of any circumstances.

      Also, I believe the big ass crossbow is called a “ballista” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballista) for those that haven’t heard of them. They were expensive to build and stories have been told that some were as big as a small house and could fire a spread of bolts.

      However, the one on the show was nothing spectacular. The mad scientist basically ordered a big crossbow from Amazon. You would think King’s Landing would have already had a few mounted in various places on the battlements for the purpose of sinking ships and scaring the s* out of attackers.

      • Yark Narf

        Dorne used ballistas defending against the dragons, they even killed one. The technology has been around Westeros for at least 300 years. It’s just a weak plot point.
        Can you imagine GRR Martin having a chapter where he describes the meeting under the Keep (in full, lush Martin detail) all leading up to the Qyburn pulling back to sheet for a big reveal of a… ?crossbow?
        Again, it’s not that’s it’s impossible – it just meh.

    • J-me not Hi-me

      – Prince or Princess? That’s pretty shady. That has to be a TV show only thing. No way Martin casually throws “or Princess” in there after all the prophecy talk.

      [Comic Book Guy voice] Well actually…Maester Aemon has this exact conversation with Sam in A Feast for Crows, “No one ever looked for a girl … It was a prince that was promised, not a princess…the error crept in from the translation. Dragons are neither male nor female, Barth saw the truth of that, but now one and now the other, as changeable as flame. The language misled us all for a thousand years.”[/CBGv]

      • Yark Narf

        You win this round Comic Book Guy.

      • TrentC

        I saw the same thing in book two…just read it a couple of nights ago. Don’t ask me who said it or in what context, but the prince/princess thing was mentioned. It was one or two sentences and then never referred to again in that book.

  • Johnny

    I wish you guys were still streaming on YouTube instead of Facebook.

  • Austin

    When Danni meets Bran she should have him warg into one of her dragons and have him fly into the throne room and burn everyone. Boom! war over.

  • DSimpson

    How does Samwell Tarly know to send a Raven to winterfall and not the wall?

    • Stephen Fishbach

      Great question!

  • Asher Forrester

    Looks like Dany’s Winner’s Edit and Stock Watch is going down this episode!! xD Is this just the editors playing tricks on the audience – knowing that you need an underdog edit in order to rise from the ashes and win the title?

    Will the potential execution of Ellaria Sand & Yara Greyjoy by Queen Cersei be the trigger that lights a flame under Dany’s butt to finally “be the Dragon”? Their deaths should anger her and Tyrion, right? I do think Dany and Tyrion are getting a little big-headed, knowing they have a seemingly undefeatable army on their side! That is what happens when people get too much power! They start to get too comfortable for their own good. xD

    Also, now that this season is starting to look like possible reunions for Arya – first we got to see her exact her vengeance on the Freys, now we see HotPie and Nymeria. Who’s next? The Hound? Sansa? Gendry? With the luck that Arya has, will she even get back to Winterfell? LOL Something bad’s gonna happen along the way back, right?

    I thought the point of the Grey Worm and Missandei’s scene was so that we can finally get to see a castrated penis on cable TV for the first time ever, right? Doesn’t seem like we’ve reached that point yet…LOL!

    • TrentC

      I got the same feeling from Ayra’s progression, she’s on a reunion tour and hopefully the future won’t be as dark as her past.

      Speaking of shoutouts, during my rewatch I saw that maester Qyburn survives the slaughter at Harrenhal because Robb Stark and his sweetie Talisa help heal his wounds. If they only knew.

      I’m currently watching season two/three and Stannis lives in Dragonstone. The shots there are chilling and kinda beautiful in retrospect. Very Gothic interiors and lighting in that castle.

      And I won’t make jokes about the Grey Worm/castrated/yikes scenario because they’re low hanging fruit. Or they used to be..

  • Narborg

    Slightly random question: why has King’s Landing still got the Baratheon stag baratheon sigil in the title sequence? Shouldn’t it now have the Lannister Lion ?

  • XmanIce

    Maybe Daryl from the walking dead should modify his cross bow like Cersie’s new toy?

    What’s up with the Sand Snakes? They seemed so tough but they were so easily taken out by Euron’s crew. That was really disappointing.

    I was originally disappointed with Tyrion’s plan to attack on two fronts, rather than a full force assault on King’s Landing.

    In retrospect, dividing the forces and attacking both the west and east coasts seems like a good tactical move. I believe the King’s Landing leadership would likely retreat to Casterly Rock in a losing battle. It’s supposed to be one of the best defended castles in the realm and has never fallen in battle. Kind of a nice nod back to when Tyrion asked Tywin for lordship of Casterly Rock as a reward for his role in Blackwater.
