It’s the end of an era. The Walking Dead has been around for a good chunk of everyone’s life at this point, so it’s time to poke fun one last time. Jim and A.Ron will cover the highs and lows of the series while going through your feedback. Listen in for favorite/least favorite characters, moments, episodes, and more. Thanks for joining us whether you’ve been here a few months or half of your life.
Welcome back survivors to the most loyal podcast to The Walking Dead. You’ve almost made it to the end. The final episode is upon us. This show died the way it lived; it was loud, the fights were over the top, and zombie guts were spilled. Overall, it was a mostly satisfying conclusion to a roller coaster of a series. Rest in piss, The Walking Dead.
Now that the first season is in the rear view, let’s talk about it! Should you read the books? Who took the first shot in this war? Were the Targaryens always fated to fight? Can a rider breathe at dragon cruising altitude? Is Aemond a warrior or idiot kid who can’t control his emotions? King Jimhaerys and Ser A.Ron are here to impart their wisdom.
In the House of the Dragon finale (season one) we see Rhaenyra embrace her inner dragon and Vhagar embrace Lucerys with his jaws. Also, remember Jack Palance?
War is coming to Westeros. Queen Rhaenyra does her best to prevent a schism in the kingdom. It’s not easy when your husband is Daemon. Luke doesn’t want to be the Lord of Driftmark, he won’t have to worry about that anymore. It’s the end of the season, but the start of the war. While we wait for season 2 check out the other Bald Move Pulp episodes on all your favorite shows.
Let’s play “Cool or Cringe”! The glowing table? Cool! Daemon singing to the dragon? Neutral. The sapphire eye? Cool! A.Ron and Jim doing Otto impressions. Cringe. It all comes to a fiery finale with plenty to look forward to in next season. Prove you are leal, listen to this episode.
We got a lot of answers in the finale. But were they satisfying answers? Listen in on some of the closing theories about this season and the next. Are there more half-elves running around? Will Jeff Bezos make a cameo? A.Ron has a Swedish Death Metal song for you. And don’t forget to send in your feedback for the final wrapup episode.
David has returned and his veil has been lifted! David and John discussed their hot takes for Episode 8 and then deep dive into the lore around Sauron’s near redemption, the forging of the Rings of Power, and the coming of the Istari. They tied up the episode with some listener feedback about accents, character motivations, and the reception of the show before discussing the future plans for the Lorehounds.
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!
It’s high stakes, high rewards in the series finale of Better Call Saul. Will Jimmy escape the consequences of his actions? Will he come clean and learn from his mistakes? And will Alexis spend her next birthday at Red Lobster? Join us for the podcast to find out the answers to these questions, as well as what we thought of the episode, Saul Gone.
