No longer content to merely review Game of Thrones through the use of cumbersome blocks of text, John Bender and Ryan Usher have moved on to the internet airwaves, commandeering the Paranoid Video podcast feed for their own spoiler-y purposes.

SPOILERS FOLLOW. THIS CANNOT BE OVERSTATED. DO NOT LISTEN IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ALL OF THE BOOKS.


3.08 "Second Sons"

 

We were a bit rusty after waiting an extra week to record this podcast, so this Maester's Edition installment opens with us immediately forgetting the name of the episode we're discussing. We rebound quickly, though, and manage to break down the possibilities for the Hound's arc on the show as well as the similarities between Bronn and Daario Naharis. There is also the story of how super famous celebrity REDACTED was once a dick to Ryan, as well as the comical toppling of REDACTED's REDACTED inside the recording booth. 

Note: There is some mention toward the end of the podcast of the show's hiatus extending for an extra week. Disregard this. We were mistaken. Episode 9, "The Rains of Castamere," will air as scheduled tonight. But you already know that, because you're a maester.
