Can you be into feet and not be creepy about it? We thought Daemon was a wild card, but it looks like Rhaenys is vying for the role. With the stage suspiciously devoid of Rhaenyra and Daemon, we get a very personal look into the chaotic lives of Team Green.
The power has been restored to this show. Great sacrifices are made, destinies intertwined, and identities revealed. Though original Tolkien lore was trampled a bit, it was a job well done all around. We’re looking forward to seeing our heroes and villains in the next season. And don’t miss the feedback and wrap up episode next week!
King Jimherys and Ser A.Ron are keepin’ it leal. Though Team Black is looking pretty cool, we’re trying to give Team Green a fair shake. Is GRRM fixing the universe’s history? Could abdication have saved the realm? And did any of us really believe that Rhaenys was over not getting the crown?
This is the sizzle before the scorching fire. Is Viserys your favorite character now, too? Alicent is more dangerous than before. Rhaenyra and Daemon are already quite the pair. Having twins in the Kingsguard was clearly a play by Viserys to have his own campy 90s movie setup. And could someone write a concise guide to the names of these characters? Jim has had enough.
What? Why? Who? Just a few questions we have about The Rings of Power. This is the tale of two shows, one is super fun, the other is the show we’re getting. But we won’t let the ash cloud rain on our parade! The buddy show that is Durin and Elrond’s friendship is still top tier entertainment. And finally, A.Ron and Jim unveil their Orc Voices.
What will Sea Smoke get up to? Should the actors read the book? Is King Jimhaerys working through some issues in real time while reviewing this show? Cease the Alicent support, he won’t entertain it! He will unleash his Kingsguard on you. But wait! Ser A.Ron in his dark green cloak remains leal to partiality. Listen in for the HOTD and Bald Move drama.
We knew you were going to ask about the five dragons, so A.Ron has the details for you. When true-born heirs seem to be in short supply, tensions rise and knives come out. How many bodies can you pile up in the ocean before they start to poke out? Global warming and rising waters could solve that problem. Would you trade an eye for your own dragon?
A.ronduin and Jimgoth have gazed into a Palantír and saw your feedback. Tune in for a geologist’s review of those pesky pyroclastic flows. Which begs the question, what level of “doomed” do you need to be to NOT survive a natural disaster? Find out how Harfoots become the Hobbits. And the baby smack-down of the age is here, Baby Gandalf is coming for Baby Yoda.
‘Tis an ill portent when Jimfiel deems another episode of TROP as a “Walking Dead” episode. But don’t worry, there are good things too! Galadriel is doing some bad guy stuff and Isildur seems like he’s vying for the role of Numenorean f-boi. A.Ronbrimbor ponders the questions, “Are the Numenoreans nearsighted? And which horse is Berek?” And yes, the show is still gorgeous.
The feedbag is overflowing. Do you like the changes that the showrunners have made for the adaptation? Is Daemon pure chaos? How stinky is he? Apparently he reeks. Is Larys’ service leal? Did A.Ron and Jim misrepresent Alicent? Which party is confused about genes? Hear Jim and A.Ron discuss your questions and theories in this episode of feedback along with another installment of The Maester’s Corner!
