609 – Battle of the Bastards – Instant Take

Jim and A.Ron survey the horrors of war that is episode 609 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Battle of the Bastards”, and proclaim it brutal, ultimately satisfying, if a tad predictable. There were no real surprises to be found tonight if you’ve been paying attention the past few weeks, but it’s still nice to see the end of some truly nasty regimes tonight, even if the casualties were high in both the statistical and personal sense. At this stage each loss of life is going to hurt in the war to come, that still awaits north of the wall. And we still don’t know the true cost of the hasty alliances made with the Greyjoys and Littlefinger’s Arryn forces. And will Sansa’s talk of “no one” be prophetic? We ponder all this and more in this Instant Take. Be sure to rejoin us on Tuesday for our complete scene by scene break down with tons of commentary from our fellow fans.

608 – No One

Jim and A.Ron still don’t like the resolution of Arya’s Bravosi plotline, but admire a lot of the other goings on in the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “No One”. The problem is, that’s a big part of the episode and over two years of investment into Arya’s Faceless Men training, so, it’s no minor thing. Other topics include the duality of Jaime, what’s next for King’s Landing, and is Sandor considering a second career as people’s champion?

608 – No One – Instant Take

Jim and A.Ron are not sure what to make of Arya’s plot tonight during the latest episode of Game of Thrones, “No One”. And yes, while the Mountain wrecking and Sandor chopping was admittedly cool, and the 30 seconds of Dany kind of made up for Tyrion’s stale comedy stylings, and far be it from us to look askance at any scene where Jaime and Brienne make moon eyes at each other and speak of honor, we’re kind of bummed that the King and High Sparrow seems to have dumped a bucket of cold water on our Cleganebowl hopes. No man is as accursed as a Hypeslayer, Tommen.
