Jim and A.Ron are here to delve into the deeper mysteries of Game of Thrones, discussing the lore, prophecies, and world building that make Thrones great. Some of this material could be construed as spoilery, as it involves informed speculation about events that could happen on the show based on material found in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.  We do not discuss production spoilers or leaks on this podcast. Today we talk dragons in the north, Valonqar prophecies, the weirdification of Bran Stark, Night King plots and much more!

Game of Thrones – 801 – Winterfell

Jim and A.Ron are here to break down all the action from this week’s premiere episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Winterfell”. And indeed the ancestral home of House Stark houses the direwolf’s share of the action and intrigue, as characters are reunited, dragons are flown, and divisions within the forces of the Living threaten to undermine the war against the Dead. It’s clear that sharing power and cooperating is going to be a challenge, not only for Jon and Dany, but for the many different peoples who have thrown in their lot with them. We’ll be back Friday for our SpoiLORE edition that delves into the background details of the World of Ice and Fire as well as mines for hidden details that may yet remain in the source books!
