Welcome to the Game of Thrones Book Club, the Post Show Recaps podcast that talks about HBO’s Emmy-winning series from the perspective of those who have read George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels and related material. You are listening and proceeding further at your own risk.
This week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) dive into the big reveal about Jon Snow and what it means for the show moving forward; the sudden and unexpected death of Roose Bolton, still alive in the books; the sudden and totally expected, yet still totally awesome, death of Balon Greyjoy at the hands of incoming badass brother Euron; Bran Stark’s return and the first ever appearance of Lyanna Stark; and more.
