VoK 597: Kings and shit – The Great Linear ASOIAF Reread Part 103


s_rE8V5MaN3Z6hYQA2yUiCsrZEosG-7SKNoHbT3MYig

As we approach the end of our epic re-read we take time out to wrap up the final TWOW preview chapters. We ended episode 102 with Asha being reunited with Theon in Stannis’ camp in Theon 1. So we begin this episode with the Theon chapter from TWOW that takes place a day later on August 10th We then cover the Alayne 1 (29m) and Mercy (54m) chapters, even though we’re not sure where they fit in the timeline. What this does is finish off the stories (so far!) of the remaining Winterfell kids.

Your hosts today are Bina007, Matt/Blu3arm0r, Varley, Abby/DarceyMormont, Jock/MunroJock2 and Michael/Khal Wadege.

The podcast is dark and full of spoilers for all works in George R R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series but for Game of Thrones, the TV show.
