Warning: This podcast contains spoilers for the Game of Thrones episode, “Blood of my Blood.”

For a Game of Thrones episode titled “Blood of My Blood,” there was surprisingly little blood.

We saw the return of Benjen Stark (aka: Cold Hands), and caught a glimpse of the Mad King’s death. We also witnessed some sneaky political maneuvers by the High Sparrow, who seemingly check-mated the Lannisters and Tyrells.

Arya Stark remembers her name – and where she buried her sword, Needle; and we meet Samwell Tarly’s dad, who won’t be winning any “Father of the Year” awards anytime soon.

Oh, and have you met my dragon?” – Daenerys to the Dothraki

“Blood Of My Blood” represents a number of turning points for the season – especially for Dany and Bran – as we begin to step into new and uncharted territory for the series.

The Game of Thrones podcast crew of Dana, Vanessa and Peter dig deep into the fan theories that turned out to be true, and speculate about where the remainder of Season 6 is heading.

However, we all agree that it was yet another great episode this season, and (thankfully) not as traumatic as last week’s.

Also Discussed:

  • We’re reminded that Walder Frey is still alive and needs to be killed, violently
  • Edmure is also alive and being used as a pawn…but to what end?
  • Jaime and Brienne are headed to the Riverlands – and Vanessa is positively giddy over the prospect of Lady Stoneheart’s possible arrival onto the show
  • Sam grows a pair and steals a Valyrian steel blade from his prick of a father
  • Arya is seemingly out of that spooky death cult and is, hopefully, going to make her way back to Westeros with her list of names and trusty Needle in hand

Warning: This podcast contains spoilers for the Game of Thrones episode, “The Door.”

Whelp, we went from one of the series most uplifting episodes…to easily one of the saddest.

Hodor. Hodor. Hodor.

Who, me? Oh, nothing. I just have some snow in my eye.

Hodor on, Hodor.

With tonight’s episode of, “The Door,” season 6 continues to rack up the body count, but none have been as gut-wrenching as the (presumed) loss of poor Hodor.

The series also delivered a triple mind-freak dick-punch by revealing the origin of Hodor’s condition, his dreadful demise, and Bran’s responsibility for both.

Oh yeah, and the Starks lost another goddamn Direwolf.

The podcast crew of Dana, Vanessa and Peter gather once more to discuss and dissect the episode, along with our shared grief at the loss of the Hodorest Hodor who ever Hodored.

Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Game of Thrones episode, “Book of the Stranger.”

The first three episodes of this season may have focused on ice, but tonight we saw the return ofFIRE in a big way.

The Game of Thrones weekly podcast crew of Dana, Vanessa and Peter return to discuss every fiery detail of Season 6, Episode 4: “Book of the Stranger.”

So far season 6 has been rather uplifting – relatively speaking – after the joyless black pit that was season 5, and there’s no better example of that then this week’s episode. In fact, season 6 has really upped the pace these last four episodes, as fans have been treated to an assortment of satisfying moments…which, judging by history, probably won’t last long.

Daenerys had another showstopping moment this week; plus we finally get a Stark family reunion that many fans have been waiting for since Season 1.

We see Sansa reunited with Jon; Theon rejoined with Yara; Margaery consoles Loras; Jorah and Daario find Dany, and even Cersei is (seemingly) joining forces with Lady Olenna.

Joy!

Some major Stark family shakeups happen this week on Game of Thrones, and the weekly podcast crew of Dana, Vanessa and Peter are back to discuss every little detail of Season 6, Episode 3: “Oathbreaker.”

A Quick Recap:

  • Arya Stark gets her vision back
  • Bran Stark sees his father, Eddard, in action at the Tower of Joy
  • Rickon Stark has returned…phew!…but he’s now in Ramsay’s clutches…shit!
  • Jon Snow fashions his enemies with new neckties and quits the Night’s Watch

We may have also caught a glimpse of a major plot point involving the identity of Jon Snow’s parents.

In one of the biggest moments of the episode, Bran witnesses a young Ned Stark facing off against legendary swordsman Ser Arthur Dayne, a member of the “Mad King” Aerys Targaryen’s Kingsguard, at the Tower of Joy.

According to Dayne, he was instructed by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen (Daenerys and Viserys’ older brother) to guard the tower, where Ned suspects his sister Lyanna is being held after Rhaegar kidnapped her and incited the rebellion that eventually saw the Targaryen dynasty removed from power and Robert Baratheon installed on the Iron Throne.

What relevance does this have to Jon Snow’s parentage? Feel free to fall down that rabbit hole of speculation here — but it’s discussed in detail on the podcast that after Lyanna’s death and Robert’s victory, Ned returned home to Winterfell (and his new wife Catelyn) with a bastard son, but refused to tell anyone the identity of Jon’s mother.
