Watching Westworld – 203 – Virtu e Fortuna

The latest episode of Westworld, “Virtu e Fortuna” adds an enigmatic new character, an entirely new park, and depicts the first formal battle of the Great Host Rebellion of 2052. There is a lot to unpack, and seemingly everything seen just leaves us with more questions. We discuss the dual natures of Dolores and Maeve, Bernard making a crucial discovery of what’s in one Peter Abernathy’s head, and try to puzzle out out what the tiger hunter has to do with the story and how she relates to the other characters.  Not to mention all the great feedback we’ve got from the Westworld fans and the crazy/cool theories and speculation we get up to at the end of the podcast. 

Game of Thrones – 203 – What is Dead May Never Die

Jim and A.Ron continue their re-watch campaign of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “What is Dead May Never Die”.  There is some really strong stuff in here; Tyrion’s canary trap for the Small Council, the heroic and badass last stand of Yoren, the introduction of two fantastic new characters in the forms of Brienne of Tarth and Margary Tyrell.  But there is also some less fun stuff; like anything to do with Shae. But all in all a great episode despite not featuring Dany or Robb.  All this discussion, plus a healthy heaping of feedback ahead!

We discuss ARGs, the finer points of error handling, and lots of easter eggs and theories before considering quite a bit of arguments from our fellow fans.
