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.


3.09 "The Rains of Castamere"

 

So, yeah, it was just as painful this time as it was the first time. This episode stuck closely to what was originally on the page, so there wasn't much for us to do in the podcast besides praise the show's execution (LOL). We also clearly struggle to cope with what we just saw, since we talk about pretty much anything except the REDACTED Wedding, instead diving into speculation about the Doom of REDACTED, the REDACTED of Wyman Manderly and the perils of being anything but single in Westeros. Be sure to listen for the excessive clinking noises made by John's glass of ice water, a haunting auditory reminder of the chill that will now and forever grip our hearts.
