"It takes less than two minutes to make just crocodile final seven varieties just cracking egg in the. Gal. Supports definitely. Wall. Now alot welcome to the watch. My name is Chris Ryan, I'm editor at the rigor dot com. And joining me in the studio, he just got back from the funeral pyre and manner is closed smokey degree walls of all the things. I got from last night's episode really well bifurcated episode sort of game of thrones that we're going to be talking about during the watch podcasts with Andy Greenwald. And Chris Ryan that about covers it I did not expect a stirring tribute to the outdoor open flame cookery of Francis moment. The Franklin barbecue of game of thrones. I mean, those who just loves to throw meet in the dirt. Berries stuff in the dirt. He sets up sober Ainum. Yeah. Dame's within there's a chef's table with him. Basically, his whole style is kind of like what Mel asandra used to have running on the beaches of dragon stone. You know what I mean? Like would remember that like the season's just have some like real open air back to nature cookery people in that case primitive. What a ride. Yeah. Okay. So last week. I think that we were firmly kinda like that was good, you know, and that the critiques of it while while understandable in the end of the day was like, I we felt like the the chievements of the episode really overlapped that they really like really shown through last night's episode was really interesting because I I realized a couple of things one is like I'm never bored watching the show, and I'm always entertained by always fight thought-provoking. I always find generally I liked the acting across the board. I like the writing across the board direction across the board. There was so much. Good stuff. Last night like the candlelight flickering in Danny's is every time she would sort of start to lose it a little bit in like the allusions to her being the dragon Queen mad Queen. Let me put it this way. I love nachos. You know? I love to eat. Nachos. Do you? Sure. Yeah. Complain. Nachos. This is a bit. I've never seen it. But it's true. You eat one. And you're like pretty good. Yeah. Then there's like a bite about a third in. Yeah. Where you're like why does anyone eat anything else? But this you get the soggy chip. No. Because it's so good. I combat ship. Perfect bite. I was jumping the gun. Yeah. All the pieces that make it good. That is essentially like when Jamie comes up to brands room, and you're like, God damnit spent so along with these characters like these two kids men, I actually thought I was gonna come in here to a room hostile to that plot development because was only OTP for you know, I just want the best for these before at this point. Then there is the where you're like. I ate a full congealed Scallon. You know, and it wasn't great. And then you get to the end. And you're like, I feel I feel like I made some mistakes, and that's kind of like the ark of last night's episode for me. Oh, I didn't make any mistakes. It's like, I just think that we we are witnessing something that would probably never witness again, not only in its chief minutes. But also in the flaws that are baked into trying to end something like this. And we talked about this last week. We talk about this week. But you know, I really really was excited to talk with you specifically about this not only because your best friend. We've done game of thrones. Like almost decade. Do you have someone scheduled after? No because I think I wanna talk to you a little bit about a lot about the writing today and how you write for characters. I'm ready to to try and weigh in on that. I'm glad you started this way with a really a hunger. Panting nacho. Because I want to begin by clarifying something from last week, which is to say we were all in on that episode on that episode. What I didn't want my positively about that episode to imply though, was that I was completely giving a blank just giving a blanket pass to all the decisions that led us to that point..

With a wary of the way that exchange kind of made sense for me is I think at that moment. Mela Sandra even mentions Barrick on dare. He died for her. I think in that moment, she just realizes that aria is her prince that was promised. Which is why she just went out at the end. She's like, I'm done. Right. That's why she was. That's that's where the way I read that as she thought. It was Stanislaus than she thought. It was right on that moment. She goes, it's aria Arias the one. But like, okay. So she she's in the library getting protected, right? The with from those with those guys, and then she takes off she sees areas there, and she goes, well, I gotta leave. And that's it like, I this nothing. Nothing else goes on there. She doesn't you know, not that exchange with REI. Senate oriented the Nike. Old lady. Probably I what what what she does though 'cause aria and that moment's actually going back to being a little girl she's running and then she when she gives her that line of what do we say to the guy? That's a fucking great line that turns aria back into her bed s day today. Like, that's that's when aria realizes I'm still a fucking bad ass back from to the Bravo's time. No, that's that's a callback to season one. Oh serio. Whatever is fucking name is teachers are that as he's teaching her with a wooden sword you say to the God of death? And she goes not today shit.

The one thing I really can't defend defend all the dark phonetic shit on the ground with the fuck, it's obvious. But the there's no reason to drag and fight in the sky should have been so hard to fall that was hard. I didn't know are you couldn't tell I couldn't tell which was. But willing on which drag right, they when they went above the clouds in the moonlight beautiful gorgeous shot, right? And then they would just dive right back out. I liked when fighting like actually fighting it. It's Br it feels brutal. Yeah. It's just it's not clear enough to tell what's happening. The dragon fights they they have been in a way, I guess to save money. Maybe I don't know. Maybe the CGI the only thing I did a ton of CGI the other thing I kept thinking is how the fuck are they holding onto these fucking dragons when you're Diane arming And turning and turning. figure that they would have some hardy gets some blinking. Or are you still on this dragon? I don't care about. Okay. Let's talk about this. It's fucking drew. Carey assesses the night king with dragon fire already knew that though we found out if not kill. How how when they're taken when they're going after the three eyed raven the children the forest light up a fire right in front of the the Dan that they're in and the night king, literally walks through the fire. But brand last episode said, no one has he doesn't know if dragon fire hurts him. No one has tried this..

"Do you want me to tell you what the voice you heard coming out of the brazier when the source for cut, you said, if you I'm gonna tell you all these things she said, everything is the Lord's will. But men and women make mistakes when when the fact that Mel Sandra had made numerous mistakes brought up to her a really interesting line to think about given aria, and the fact that Mel asandra gives our this little nudge Mela, Sandra is doing that because of the Lord. But ultimately as we've said, it's aria making that choice. So you could. Read that and say, yes, everything awards will but men women make mistakes or in this case make choices, but you could also say everything is your will your wills and individual person. And you have to decide no matter what somebody's saying doing whether or not you're gonna act. And now, let's go to our custom segment from Oreo Oreo has teamed up with game of thrones. To create limited edition packaging and cookies bossed with the sills of three remaining contending houses Oreo cookies, a best enjoyed when dunked into milk. Got dumped on this week. Well, our guy with night Kerry and Kay piece. Betty got Kayode K, Don hard. He got dumped on so hard that he turned into like fifteen trays of ice cubes. How about that could use that to cool your milk? And then you'll have it ready when you wanna dunk Morio that'd be delicious. And who else got dunked on or what else, and I say this with heavy heart John's battle tactics, which leave quite a bit to be desired, especially if you are a member of the detract yet no longer alive because the race has been extinguished because John sent you into the dark why and built a trench behind his army. So that no one could escape and then had bleeders of that army grey, worm in particular. Engage. The claps will bridges while everyone was still on the other side of the fight behind the obstacles, in fact, five inside the walls. How about that? How about stay in the castle stay in your castle.

"Dies the shrieks of Charene Barath, Ian burning to death Mel asandra and spells knows of work to the story complicated. But important and with that the great war is over. Jason. That's why we're down here in this podcast studio. None of us can do anything. It's the truth. It's the most rogue thing we can do. Now the truth in the face, and that gets us to this episode's big idea. So let's cut right to the core of it and sorry reminded us by sticking with the pointy end the defining theme of the long night. Yes. Last stand. So we wanna do things just touch differently today. Give in the unique nature of this episode of game of thrones. And the unique nature of the discussion around. We're gonna just keep it slightly more conversational than we typically do because we are still finding our way through some of these points. We want to navigate that together with each other with all of you right now. So the first thing that we want to talk about before we get into really the plot of the episode is the execution of it with how this functioned as viewing experience in terms of spectacle. I don't know when we're going to see something like this on television. Again, an incredible cinematic experience in another masterstroke from Miguel Pasha responsible for some of the most signature.
"mel asandra" Discussed on Back To Work
"I love it. Very funny joke in two thousand four it's in notes. My recommendations real quick. I was just listening to this podcast this morning. It is called against the rules against the rules with Michael Lewis me and he's the of rules. He's the author of such books as moneyball the big short. What's called the fifth risk like he's he's he's that guy. He's great. Moneyball great movie big short great movie. And he he went the books upon which those are basing he has a new podcast called against the rules. And it has I think almost an arguably literally the worst show art I've ever seen in my life. And believe me, I've made some bad show art, I'm living with some bad show. Art, I'm ferrall on the line. I'm living with a cell phone picture from my Dink two thousand four like, and that's bad. There's a we we we've kind offers to be featured on eighteen and they're like tennis. The high quality version, buddy. You're looking at it like, well, good luck. Right. Terrible. Terrible show are but the shows good, and the basic premise of the show is the decline the decline of refs in our culture that basically we we just from all different angles. The very first episode is basically about refs in basketball like how come Michael Jordan? So few fouls called on him. He's obviously traveling. But he does his great shot or whatever. And it just all about like this this week. It's talking about episode called this week. I just listened to it this morning. But it's about like, basically like a guy who becomes an empire. Not all about sports is a guy becomes an like, it's a long story. But. They talked to the guy the famous guy who's done all of so many of the very famous settlements arbitration for stuff like nine eleven for stuff like deciding who gets money after thing. And it's just so interesting to hear like what goes into people who who worked the refs people who just don't acknowledge the reps how power works, and I just recommend check out the short. It's pretty great against the rules with Michael Lewis available on your podcast player. And also, I just slipped in a he's also on Chris Hayes is podcast today. And that's called breaking government with Michael Lewis? Anyway, it's not overtly political. It's not overtly sports at all is just it's just real interesting. It opens with an anecdote about King Solomon. And I bet you can guess which one, you know, that mini Solomon anecdotes, that'd be the cut in the baby. One somebody brought in a sub. And they said they said this is my sub her sub is dead. Why did she sit myself away from me? All right. And he said, and he says he says come in sword ban come in. And you you cut this in half. And you give half to each woman. One woman says in order for this hoagie to live give it to the other one. And then he was very new in his rain at the time, and he became famous as the man who was willing to slice slice a sub in order to cause Justice. Now, the thing is one of the people issues from the podcast, very good. Michael lewis. What did everything else? I wouldn't get to our what I'll call a main topic. Okay. Do. But one more thing you like, yeah. Let me tell you about a way all they have a cool news away that I know about that makes this more bags. Yes. And so they this company. It was founded by two two friends in New York. They were JFK they were at dead phones they had delayed flights, and they realized wouldn't it be amazing because they were looking around for powered after's are plugs. They couldn't find any where to plug in all hogged up. They said what if our like our carry on's could charge our phones. Like what if they had built in batteries in there and chargers, they could charge. And that's how the whole thing began, and they create special objects now, not just not just carry on's, but special objects special objects, they are designed to be resilient resourceful. Can kinda Mel asandra set it on fire?.

"So I'm not prepared to really follow that yet. And since this is the big battle episode of the season. I'll have things big as planned. I really don't. They again, a huge battle. What do you think? Ben and weirdly sky Atlantic doesn't air the next time on preview. So I haven't seen that yet. But I talked to my wife after the episode. She said there was some king's landing stuff in the next episode. So yeah, I'm I'm. You know, it's a little strange to always a little strange in any ongoing show to assess one episode within the context of larger season without having seen the entire season. Because yes, there are moments here that struck me as odd storytelling choices. But that's because I don't know the ark of the full season. Sure Brin may have some significant role yet to play, you know, things could could pan out later on where I'm like, oh, I'm so glad they didn't kill off pod or Brian or Jamie, or whatever because all of these resonant moments are lined up just to be, you know, ticked off in the next couple of episodes or something, and I hope that what happens because right now looking at it from our limited perspective, not knowing what's coming. It. Feels a little if feels like they they sort of you know, they took a huge swing. If feels like they took a huge swing, and then, you know, hit like a. Like, a solid double or something instead of hitting it out of the park. Girl. Judging by Jacobs headline for the the solo game of thrones review. You say it drops the ball with the worst battle in shows history. That's that doesn't sound like a solid doubled me. That's the thing is I type of this in the review, which is the battle of self sucks. I I made a pretty prints podcast as well. And I'm trying to be like cruel about it. Because I think that, you know, people work hard cle- clear effort put in this allow time money hours, but the battle actions he has satisfied action scene does not work, it's incoherent, but the absurd self like stuff in the crypts santeria, tearing aria. Coming full circle just all those little moments on the edges self Mel asandra. Theon making foul sacrifice in a very very good death scene. These this is all stuff. I like also was very good. Glad I wash stuff that hope. I will remember stuff that they were talking about not being the battle instead of Giora dying. Danny's arms breaks, my heart because England is such an incredible actor Clark is sharing genuine moment with him as he lies laser diner arms. You know, the exile night two thousand four and dying for that very thing. It's a beautiful moment is just, you know, scattered in the middle of this. Terrible paddle that goes on forever and ever and ever. So I will not close the worst episode game history. But it isn't DB worse battle and for me. That's an important station. Where do you think we're headed?.

"He's so brave. He's like and the way the these days, I have so much respect for the red woman. And she was fucking read about every board of like, no, she got a few things wrong. Like definitely they didn't need to burn Shrina. Lot was so sad some fucked up shit, but at the end of the day like she serving the Lord of light as best as she knows? How she also is technically a burial woman without her necklace. Remember that? No, I don't know. I'm so like, just I'm I need to catch her when she's living in the wall. She takes off her magic necklace. Oh, yeah. Oh my God. I d- here's old spoiler alert. But she talks like an actual geriatric. So it makes sense. Yeah. Come up with some new lives at the I totally ship Mela, Sandra. And Santa's and I should me and Stanton. I feel really sad for Santa's wife like she's so sad. But like she so thirsty like she's still sitting there. She shouldn't believe less in the Lord of light it anytime. She gets to talk to Santa. She's like it's with light once. So you just think you're saying that you heard Sandra say, you know. Yeah. No. She wants to be Melissa ultra Mel asandra and Nelson die is starting to using these children, whatever it's using anyways. So obviously cadre my number one. But I'm just starting season five out of the people who are still alive. Now, I'm gonna go sadness and also like timelines are definitely a monster. But like right all of the time all the time. And Lord Barras said he's like what side you said if I but I was watching episode. He said honestly in this. Tinkler scenario on Thailand Lancaster side because he would be the best possible leader. Yeah. He he what is very judge. He in his own way ruled the realm since the mad king was on the throne because the hand of back king. So he's keeping the realm move in for like twenty years here. Yeah. Also, I just watched the episode where tilling Tyrian kills Taiwan. Spoiler alert. And the last thing he says before -tarian puts the arrow the second arrow in his because he puts he shoots him once, and he can still talk and the last thing he says before he gets clipped again is you are no son of mine, Omar, but you're one thousand percent total house percent, right? And then I went digging because I was like, okay, which target area is is Taiwan's rumored to have slept with have sucked with and because it is a very popular theory. And I don't even I'm not gonna be fucking Conan O'Brien if I don't know that I came up with it. I might have been trolling right at one night. And so and it wasn't looking spoilers. And I saw it. And then at now, I see everything through that lens while like you. I don't wanna know what you think or what what you've found because those theories on rather, always, right? Okay. No. I was reading just the the histories of of of the characters like Joanna, Lancaster. You're such a precious gem. He just wants to include Lancaster Taiwan's five. I was just reading like. I was thinking what the book say about her. So anyways, there is there is a in tex-. Okay. And when the prince of Dohrn Obermann is talking Tyrian when he's in jail, and he was saying how you so disappointing when he came to Catholic rockets, he was ready to meet like this monster me that everyone said like how detail drag him and then turned out he was just a normal baby. You know what I'm torn because. Okay. We're only we're only on episode one. There's five more episodes, and I can't tell if I wanna be like in it on Reddit reading spoilers knowing that eary's because I didn't know that there was a very popular theory that John was target area and have stark, and then it checked out to be true. But when I found out I was like social to my core. Like, that's how you should watch TV show. Yeah. So from here on out, I've decided I don't want to know anymore theories. I dunno..

"It's your sounds like a frontman. But I think you're right Braun has actually proven on the show that he's got the chops. The lead one. So what's the next category? Probably most likely to take over the brothel industry minute. Little thing is dead. Someone's gotta do it. I feel like Padre pain. That's gotta be the the choice here. He's proven particularly interested in the subject in an earlier episode. What do you think? Well, I think that I think you're right. My answer was Mel asandra because you got to go somewhere her previous clearly failed. Yeah. But Hadramut not only understands the art of love, but he's a sweetheart who's going to treat them with respect pay them more. And generally have a more humane. World for sex workers. So I think Padre. All right. Yeah. I like it most likely to win in a sword. Fight. This. There's a lot contenders ear, but are you start feels like that feels like the winner here? Right. It was for me. It was toss tossup between aria John and Brienne of tar. And we don't know how John would fare against aria, and Brian and interestingly Brin aria have that sort of sparring session. But it looked like an end of rocky three scenario where they both punch each other at the same time, but it freezes, and you don't know who actually wins. So I just I said I gave Brian the edge because she took down the hound and he's proven himself, obviously to be like a pretty formidable force. What do you think? This is really hard is like REO would fight dirty. And and Brian and John would not actually like she would take advantage of that think you're right. I think they would fight with swords and REO would fight with a sword. And also a dagger or something and like yet take the edge that way. All right. What's the next one most likely the die by freezing to death? I'm gonna say grey worm. He seems to be sleeveless a lot. So I don't know. I don't know if he has the wardrobe necessary to survive, the north my my answer was more sad just saying Charlie because if left alone he would die horribly, but I think gray webs are funnier answer at one imagine San freezing to death, Greg down. All right. So here's one that. I couldn't quite figure out an answer to most likely to join the army of the dead. And when I created that category. I guess it basically just means who do you think is going to die in the north or or die anywhere and become part of the night. King's army, who do you think is the most likely to do that? I read that until a different way. I read it as who'd willingly joined the night king in his quest to dominate world. Okay. All right. And by reading that I put brand stark that weird that we're little talker. Who knows this up with them these day? I feel like anyone can turn on a dime to decide humanity's beneath me, it's brand stark. I like that I had the mountain because I feel he sort of like kinda dead anyway. And maybe he would just like be like, you know, what I'm sick of taking orders from surgery, but I like the brand auction. He hasn't gotten much love on this list. Let's give it to him. All right. So how about most likely to kill Searcy? I gotta say aria stark. She's one of the few people left on her list and aria has proven pretty ruthless in in terms of like going down that list and trying to check off as many names as possible. Do you think she has a chance to do it? Or do you think somebody else could do it? I put Tyrian here only because I feel like he has unfinished business with her. And would it would complete his arc is a man who keeps them murdering his family. But I'm also think Tyrian is on this list of times already. So it's making our, you know, actually missing that. I think something about the prophecy doesn't doesn't imply that one of her brothers is going to one of these brothers is gonna. Kill her. If this is game of thrones. That as a prophecy it in this janey, she the person come in, right? Yeah. Okay..

You know, if you see him you recognize him. Okay. I recognize. Yeah. I recognize them. Right here. Oh, yeah. Okay. He's the guy who had the leeches on them that Mel asandra put the leeches on him. Right. That guy died. No. He did not still. Okay. All right. So he's he by the way, he's favored over Tyrian. He's favorite over Santa. He's plus nine hundred he's favor oversee. So that's that's the thing. That's gaining. So here's a fancier, by the way. None of this is spoiler alert stuff because nobody knows anything. Yeah. But there's a fan theory that gantry is sir c Lancasters. Sun, the Gendron she used to be married to Robert breath. Right. So Gandhi would be sir sees sun. But what's interesting is brand is the number to favor can't be him. They must they must be dragging them around in that thing for something that he could beat a night king. They've been throwing picking the Nike. I know. I mean that brand could be the Nike. Yeah. No. That's the that's the other weird fan theory. Is that somehow brand is the night king? I still get credit. If that happens. I don't know. But I do think we should make mythical money bets on this. Amen. No. We'll absolutely do it as we get closer to the season. I like my odds. They announced opening night. It's gonna be April. I think they said April fourteen thirteen fourteen the world is going to stop. And by the way, you're Laker season ends right before that. Oh, does it yet. Now, hoping weight loss yet fluid the regular season does not and rare before that. Yeah, we're waiting to find out. And when will there be an update on the Bruns groin situation tomorrow, and any would be unusual for him to go on this trip or leaving tomorrow for Oklahoma City? So they're going to update the Lakers are gonna send center update about LeBron. And I would imagine if he was all systems go they would let them go on the trip and play right? The thunder and against the rockets, but. What's weird is? He hasn't practiced. He's been in practice. He's been taking shots and he's been getting treatment. But I don't think he's been out there on the court practice. Maybe LeBron so good. You don't need practice. But. I I would not be stunned if they tomorrow said LeBron's going to be out another week..

"And to me this scene. Josh is interesting. But if memory serves ultimately other than to reset Varis is not down with magic. I kind of feel like that. There is no reason for this. No, I think that that's that's one of the things that is that is that is distressing on the rewatch of season six especially for me is how much of this. And granted we don't we don't know how the show is going to end yet. So there could be utility to a lot of this stuff in the final six episodes. There's only six episodes left to justify lady crane and environs existences. We don't we just don't know. But they're just feels like a lot of the the wheel Spinney material here in in this season that I had either forgotten or was. More tolerant of at the time. I think for the conversing and the matter of setting up once again Varis relationship with magic in which he really does not care for anyone who describes himself as a worshiper of the Lord of light or somebody who believes in the power of lower and can can do all these things giving his own personal history with a source or I feel like we will see in season seven right when when when Mel asandra embarrass meat, and she gives him that showing prophecy that I have to die here in this strange country and soda you. And so we're wondering what does that mean for various in the final stretch of game of thrones? Isn't there some sort of magical reckoning heading towards barris? And if so is that what a scene like this helps to reinforce that. Once we know what the final score is with various the spider will a scene. Like this take on a sharper. Meaning yet to me. It just seems that they just needed like Mel Sandra stand in here. And that's what this scene is about. Yeah. I think that seems that's fair. I think that it's you know, these episodes are an hour long. If not an outright our and they need the material. And so here's a scene with conversa-. Enjoy just eating various is gonna kill Mila, Sandra. No. I don't. Could I could more easily imagine Mela Sandra killing various, maybe? Though, I feel like that various has to get the jump on somebody you who has magic. But there isn't really killer. Right. I mean, like we haven't seen him that way. Certainly he's not opposed to leaf -ality as a tool, but he's not typically the trigger man on anything other than the duties had tied up in his box for years. So when when he does roll up his sleeves it is unconventional things. Like, the idea of watching Varis stab somebody is is a strange idea. I really I really liked the idea of like one of the more politically minded characters having to have a moment where they must reckon with the the magical threat, like the more supernatural threat that has been facing game of thrones all the way down like this is why I was so bummed when little finger died I felt like for little finger to become the victim of the white Walker. Although he is taken down at least in part by magic with brands that's somewhat satisfying. I think for for that to happen to someone like Varis, especially somebody who's history so tied up with magic as it stands room to be taken out by a white Walker and like a moment of slow dread. That he can't negotiate his way out of would be very painful and tragic to watch. But I think might be in character with what he has been all about various the spider verses and ice spider, potentially. Could you see that maybe that can happen? But as you the various needs to come down on victorious against Bajic hasn't he been through enough at the hands of magic that he also to die from magic rob view thought that this had a happy ending, you weren't paying attention. Isn't that a great whole line from the previous game of thrones episode? Yeah, I just feel like I could see various like snatching Nelson, RAs necklace or something like that to reveal her for. She really is. I it's been such a through line on the show of various hates magic virus hates anything with magicians..

"And then the discussion went on to talk about how you read something in regards that Gingas Kahn, and how they couldn't believe that people would want to convert to their religion, I can relate a bit of both of these things. I'm an Australian yet. I'm a heathen. I practiced the beliefs of the northern gods. He's following the old gods. Anthony, I assume he's talking about like Celtic or Norse Norse. Yeah. I think George has said that the old gods are built in part on Celtic, spirituality and impart on Wicca Wicca would be a modern iteration of some of this sort of tree worship and animism. And and I think a lot of people who are sort of nature worshipers, I grew up in northern California. So I I knew a few these folks that would consider themselves pagans in the sense that they're they're they're sort of embracing sort of old school nature religion. So Russell continues. I get a lot of questions is why believe in this religion in particular, Emma, simple answer to them is the belief itself. Humans are different yet. The same to most things on the planet. We serve a purpose yet, we have this distinct ability to comprehend the world. Such a deep way that we look and seek to be guided in order to give within ourselves a higher, purpose belief in something else often believes in belief in oneself and a social setting. We also ask why a lot which means a lot of questions. It may be why did you do that? Or on a bigger scale. Why are we here which having a core belief helps deal with a lot of that? When you combine the two people will drift to a belief system in which they fulfill all these things and intern get a deep sense of belonging game of thrones is great with this. Because if you put the same questions as some of the characters or religions, you can understand what motivates them what they're driving to achieve and for what purposes why they wanted etc. It can work both ways, for example, Tyrian who is genuinely more of an atheist may be more motivated to look after himself and his actions will reflect the such or is outlook may make him apprehensive of someone who's a deep religious or deeply religious vow did devoted rather such as Mel asandra belief system shape, our world down to personal actions game of thrones is no different. And I think you guys do great to touch on this. This. I mean..

"I guess it depends on whether you think that Mela Sandro could magic of victory for status because I don't see a way for Stanton to fight out of dragon. Stone idea seems almost inevitable that Joffrey or somebody will get enough ships to go, burn him out of there, and he will have a Voest deliver onions and he'll either star, he'll probably starve to death. Honestly, like Stanton says that he will starve to death at the gate, barring as hungry people from opening the door. So like now, if you believe that mala sonner could burn injury alive and kill Joffrey and other kings and make everyone else swear fealty which maybe she can fuck. I don't know before I saw a shadow, come out of Regina had no idea. She could do that. Yeah, she's got power, and it does seem to be fueled at some point by Royal blood. I mean, that's interesting thing right that like in less than four episodes, all the rival kings would be dead Belan great joy gets swept off of a bridge, but probably faceless man. God him Joffrey chokes on some dry Ren Leigh's already like like it is. It is something to make you think, right. Sure. I mean, the kings are dropping like flies. So yeah, if Mel asandra could imagine him away out because otherwise I he doesn't have the ships. He hasn't had the men. He doesn't have anything to do an invasion of west rose. So right, whereas lure he could. Rally, the free folk. He could rally the black brothers. He could rally the resistance in the north to the illegitimate Bolton rule like he's got some plays. He can make ultimately he doesn't, but I'm going to do, and that's what burning daughter the most Royal blood. So. Our theon, torture counts up to seven. Let's talk about a couple of minutes talking about, wasn't all worth it. The need d, did you need all of them to get to the point where he makes him say wreak? Yeah. No, I think absolutely. Do. Like I said, last episode, you know, since we don't have that POV from inside the head, it's really you gotta get in there and you gotta understand the show has to make you understand that this guy is broken, and I think the seven scenes that we get our enough to do it. I think it's a pacing problem. I think throughout the second half at a season, there was far less torture there, like, you know. So I think that what they should have done since there is nothing to tide that Ramsay Bolton, storyline, the anything else that could have been in any order, like ever to episodes, give us a dose of the just so you know that you understand all this time is passing. Theon is on his cross getting tortured, I think they could. I think it's a matter of pacing. Someone is Ronin too much or what, what's just from frontloaded it too much. I think so because we got the like five torture scenes week, five. And then we got the seven by wheat tin. That's the me not pace appropriately. There's a couple of. There's three episodes of road. I don't think we can got the Ramsey. So that's then someone also wrote that this might also be a part of the where my dragons, which we found that like what was persuasive about that is every fucking previously on. She was screaming where my dragons, all of the trailers or where am I dragon 's all of the soul like it was amplified in echoed and I have to magin that this Ramsey torturing stuff is like, you know, if your stomach is full already and every previously on and next time on his featuring, torture just amplifies echoes it. So, yeah, yeah. Yeah, we lose one and we pay some every other episode and no one has been complaints because I, I do think you do have to tell the story of this man being destroyed. Oh, yeah. And I think they did that pretty effectively. I also think like on on this watch, I wasn't as effective by the torture stuff. I think because I didn't see the previously on next time on. I was simply watching the episodes because on right now they weren't. They weren't showing previously on. So of course, yeah. It didn't hit me the same way as it would with all the previews and stuff..

"And like it's open question how much Mel asandra shit is legit and how much of it is fakery because in the books she is aware the fact that like she has vials of shit in her robes where she's got antidotes the stuff and she's got powders that can make flash. But also she's becoming aware that she's got surreal power, and we find that also in the show that she turns out that she's an old Crone, something that they kinda hinted the books that she's actually someone that has a back, sorta stretches back several hundred years instead of the the youthful and beautiful woman that she actually is. So she's this dichotomy. And you know, we'll see her put his blood curse on a bunch of kings that eventually end up dying. But did they die? Because she burnt the leeches or like these are all things. And I think Martin wants to be in big, you ass- he's pulling the leftovers on us by really straddling that line between what supernatural, what's ritual, whatever things that happen because people believe and want them to happen. So they act in subtle ways to make it. So there unfortunately is not a clear cut answer on that stuff. As of yet been seems like in this context, kings blood would be whatever the practitioner of magic wants kings blood to be right to to make them feel good about the ritual they're performing, right? Whether it has an effect or not. Like in the books since we're in a spoiler town, like Mel asandra wants to us, you know. A man's raiders blood. Yeah. Is he even the king king beyond the wall, but is he really like what the hell does that wouldn't even call himself king right? And like every stark has Royal blood because up to three hundred years ago, they're all kings in their own right? Is that the, you know, time whenever Royal blood because they were in the they, they were to king of the rock like who, who, who knows what is like are all of the Dornoch nobility still got Royal blood because I style themselves as Princeton princesses. I don't know. I don't know that Melissa knows and I don't know that the Lord of the light cares. I mean, no, the Lord of the light is real and I've just written a book about the subject. So it'd be hard to find somebody without kings blood with as much philandering these kings Dalby himself land shock full. Go to flea bottom. Everybody, greens, blood, everybody with with with black early haired is pretty, you got it unlimited font of kings blood. Christian while listening to last week's podcast started think about the care that have died in the series. I started wonder which care to death at the largest impact on the story of the series. In my opinion, I think it's either Robb stark and Taiwan Lancaster are the ones that really shook up the story. Put net in there? Well, he excluded season one death. Okay. So that seems unfair. Right? Yeah. Okay. Excluding those because you could go back to like John Erin, if you wanted the guy that likes your data literally kicked off the series. I mean, if you want, if you, I think it's pretty clear if you if you disavow book one season one that, yeah, rob and Thailand gotta be. I mean, they're the rob was the biggest threat to the regime of the south and Thailand was the biggest kind of savior, the person who, if all else being equal is the person who could have done the best job of ushering west rose through this this winter. Now, I think it's kind of empty question because I don't think Taiwan could have done anything about the white walkers because he's just a man like these things, magical threats that need some kind of magic the counter them, and you know, John snow with, you know, Dany and her dragons. That's the thing that you need. Apparently. The defeat these people, so so..

"Oh yeah i think it will always be ambiguous like i don't think that we will ever see below you know if it so man they better cast that really perfectly like they gotta get sarangani hopkins on board like they gotta get someone incredible to play the the lord of light i don't expect that that is going i think in the last season i what i've heard the rumor is that the next to last episode they're going to spend with the lord of light and then the lord of darkness just sitting on the beach somewhere like hanging out across the narrow sea yes i've read i've read those rumors as well oh god shoot me could we could be good joe do that one who is listening at h b o please stop yeah i think though it's consistent with the theme of this show a song of ice and fire we know that there are dragons we know that there are white walkers we know that they're colliding the power of the lord of light is to know we've seen we've seen mel asandra and thors of ear bring people back from the dead and we have seen the night king half the same ability although it is like a very dark perversion of that ability of you know just like bringing someone back in completely solis ice monster form so yeah i think it tracks i just don't think it'll ever be like specifically honed in on unless that godawful episode we just pitched comes to light.
