Darren I agree with your analysis completely. Also Jon needs to name one of his children Varys. I expected only what the show hinted at, when they randomly change it to simply end the show then Shame! Shame! I.e. The ballistas getting buffed and nerfed, ridiculous plot armor etc. I am still entertained.

Really happy James and Darren have started this podcast. This will be the best season ever. I know I will need to do my homework after every beautiful confusing show. Walks of shame. Jumping the wall. Fresh victims. I think I will have to quit my job. James and Darren really keep the ideas flowing. They are real experts about the show. Way too much tease for the upcoming show. But I love it!
