It was a tale of two houses, one Green and the other Black. To our delight, the GOT universe made a triumphant return to the small screen. From enormous time jumps, rotating cast members, and a great expansion on lore, I think we can agree the season pulled off some impressive plays.

Now that the first season is in the rear view, let’s talk about it! Should you read the books? Who took the first shot in this war? Were the Targaryens always fated to fight? Can a rider breathe at dragon cruising altitude? Is Aemond a warrior or idiot kid who can’t control his emotions? King Jimhaerys and Ser A.Ron are here to impart their wisdom.  We’ll have a HOTD wrapup episode out next week!  Get your final thoughts in for the wrapup podcast!

It is the hour of the owl and foul deeds are afoot. Should Rhaenyra abdicate and save the realm from bloodshed? Even if that leaves the realm in the hands of (gulp)...Aegon? Was the dragon the only beast beneath the boards? King Jimhaerys and the leal Ser A.Ron are here to answer those questions and possibly yuck your yum.  Want to represent Team HOTD?

Can you be into feet and not be creepy about it? We thought Daemon was a wild card, but it looks like Rhaenys is vying for the role. With the stage suspiciously devoid of Rhaenyra and Daemon, we get a very personal look into the chaotic lives of Team Green.  Want to represent Team HOTD?

King Jimherys and Ser A.Ron are keepin’ it leal. Though Team Black is looking pretty cool, we’re trying to give Team Green a fair shake. Is GRRM fixing the universe's history? Could abdication have saved the realm? And did any of us really believe that Rhaenys was over not getting the crown? Want to represent Team HOTD? Check out the new merch in the Bald Move store!

This is the sizzle before the scorching fire. Is Viserys your favorite character now, too? Alicent is more dangerous than before. Rhaenyra and Daemon are already quite the pair. Having twins in the Kingsguard was clearly a play by Viserys to have his own campy 90s movie setup. And could someone write a concise guide to the names of these characters? Jim has had enough.  Want to represent Team HOTD? Check out the new merch in the Bald Move store! Thoughts, questions, do you like dragons?

We’re careening towards the end of the first season of HOTD and the drama just keeps getting hotter. A.Ron warms up to the Melisandre theory. Who is under the Assassin’s Creed cloak?

What will Sea Smoke get up to? Should the actors read the book? Is King Jimhaerys working through some issues in real time while reviewing this show? Cease the Alicent support, he won’t entertain it! He will unleash his Kingsguard on you. But wait! Ser A.Ron in his dark green cloak remains leal to partiality.

We knew you were going to ask about the five dragons, so A.Ron has the details for you. When true-born heirs seem to be in short supply, tensions rise and knives come out. How many bodies can you pile up in the ocean before they start to poke out? Global warming and rising waters could solve that problem. Would you trade an eye for your own dragon?  Want to represent Team HOTD? Check out the new merch in the Bald Move store! Thoughts, questions, do you like dragons?

Believe it or not, the Dance of Dragons hasn’t started, but the music is growing steadily louder. Would the psychic bond of a dragon expose their rider if they’re in hiding? How strict is the succession to the throne? And find out how “taboo” incestuous marriage is to Rhaenyra and Daemon. The answer will not shock you.  Want to represent Team HOTD?

The feedbag is overflowing. Do you like the changes that the showrunners have made for the adaptation? Is Daemon pure chaos? How stinky is he? Apparently he reeks. Is Larys’ service leal?

So glad this feed came back. Please continue to do the books. My only negative feedback would be to try and match the show/books more. I am listening primarily for the books. It got me off my butt to re-read before Martin finally puts out the next one. I dont' like watching ahead in the show to keep up with your discussion on that while I'm further back in the book. either drop the show part or sync them up, maybe do a few chapters at a time for the book or only do the tv show every few weeks.

Hello Baldmove. You were wondering if there ever were other dragon-on-dragon battles. If memory serves, I can think of three movies, though The Long Night certainly has the longest scenes of dragons battling. The first Dungeons&Dragons movie has some scenes of red and gold dragons fighting and crashing into each other, poor movie though. The second Dragonheart movie has also baby gold and big red dueling. Last is Eragon, when the warlock summons a sort of ghost dragon and rides that into battle.

the fact that even these guys are in shock of the farce that was this ending really shows how bad the show ended up.

The dragon knew the throne cost Dany her life. Was not a great ending but the dragon melting the throne was pretty clear and obvious.

Dany went crazy just like her dad. Jaime killed Dany's dad because he went berzerk roasting everyone, and it's obviously a mental illness that runs in the family.

The idea of Greyworm on the council is ridiculous, he's been essentially the leader of Dany's genocide the last 2 episodes.
