The second episode, Stormborn, kicked the door down with swift elaboration on Azor Ahai.


That’s the Song of Fire and Ice’s version of Jesus that is going to send the Night King and his army of the dead to somewhere very, very warm. This is huge in the theory land of book fandom, like R+L = J big. At some point soon, Dany and John will meet. Fangirl hearts are pitter pattering everywhere, this episode of the podcast included.

Just as high as the episode takes us, it also thoroughly grosses us out. Thanks again Citadel and your witchy ways. Then when you think you’re going to vomit, it washes you over with joy and sorrow when we see Nymeria again. Yes. That’s her.

We frequently imagine that we have somehow built up a tolerance to the reckless highs and lows to Game of Thrones, and that’s the narrative’s magic if there ever was one – because we haven’t.

Now it’s time to listen to us get all up in our feelings about all these things, too:

  • Verys and Dany confrontation
  • Red Priestess and her dangerous prophecy
  • Jaime & Tarly
  • Balerion the Dread, Cersei and her mad scientist
  • Olenna and clever men
  • Greyworm & Missendai 4eva
  • Greyscale is gross AF
  • Sansa is finally queen, but somehow, we end up down one
  • Fucking Theon
  • As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments section and we will discuss on the next podcast.

    P.S. I apologize for my audio glitches, I promise to do better next week. #shameshameshame
