Rewatch Season 3 Episode 8 – GoT Sons?

Johnny and Alex return from their triumphant trip to SVCC to discuss episode 8 of season 3 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “Second Sons.” This is the one where Gendry makes the colossal mistake of not establishing a safe word with Melisandre, Dany acquires some new muscle… naked…, and Tyrion and Sansa have the BEST. WEDDING. EVER. Oh, Cersei threatens Margery’s life because, #SISTERHOOD. ————————————-

Rewatch Season 3 Episode 7 – GoT a Bear?

Johnny and Alex cover their top ten moments from episode 7 of season 3 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “The Bear and the Maiden Fair.” Highlights include Ygritte in the City, Bransplaining and, of course, Bart the Bear. Bart the MFin’ Bear, who has a Kevin Bacon score of TWO. That’s equal or better than either of ours.

Rewatch Season 3 Episode 6 – GoT a Climb?

Johnny and Alex discuss the masterful episode 6 of season 3 of HBO’s “Game of Throne,” “The Climb.” The hosts agree that this was a brilliant hour of television and basically fan out over every minute from Theon’s introduction to the Bolton family pastime to Edmure’s… hesitant acceptance of a Frey bride to Jon and Ygritte’s sweet, but doomed romance. We also mull over what a spa day in As’hai might look like. Weird, is the answer.

Rewatch Season 3 Episode 5 – GoT a Kiss?

Johnny and Alex talk episode 5 of season 3 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “Kissed By Fire.” The Hound faces his fear of fire and kills Beric Dondarrion, but wait! There’s more! Thoros of Myr turns out to be REALLY good at his job and brings Beric back to life making it seem like there’s something to this R’Hollor guy after all. Who knew? In other news, Robb kills the Karstark, Tywin plays matchmaker and Ygritte takes Jon’s v-card. Oh, and Jaime and Brienne take a very memorable bath. Light some candles, it’s a sexy one.

Rewatch Season 3 Episode 4 – GoT a Watch?

Alex and Johnny talk episode 4 of season 3 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “And Now His Watch is Ended.” This is the one where Jeor gets stabbed in the back by a whiny dope not worth mentioning. Craster dies, too, though, so it’s not ALL bad. Also, Olenna, Varys and Margery awesome all over Kings Landing, giving Sansa false hope for her future, Arya meets Berric “Robin Hood” Dondarrion, Theon gets PUNK’D and Dany murders a bunch of people in Astapor. But she does it with serious style, so we’re not mad at her.

ReWatch ReRead Season 3 Episode 2 – GoT Wings?

The rewatch continues with episode 2 of season 3 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “Dark Wings, Dark Words.” Despite some of the usual death and torture, this episode is positively lighthearted in the grand scheme of things. Brienne and Jaime have about ten minutes of hilarious banter before they get themselves captured, Margery shows us all what a boss looks like when she gets Joffrey to like her without wanting to see her insides and Lady MFin’ Olenna arrives with her Cheeseboy to show Kings Landing what no fuck’s given REALLY looks like. Move over, Tywin. Oh, and we also meet Ramsay Bolton, but that won’t be important until later. RIP Hoster Tully
