    Wun Wun won

    A marvellous first podcast for the season by 2 excellent co-hosts. This episode advanced many plotlines with scenes that pulled together so many threads.
    There were some subtle references too. Did you notice that Melisandre’s washing etc of Jon was just like the process in the House of Black and White? I wonder if the Faceless God and R’hylor the Fire God are the same, or different aspects of the same God. Or maybe Melisandre was once in the House of Black and White?

    Also, its interesting that the last of Stannis’ s leech curses came to fruition when it did. If R’hylor is similar to the Faceless god and reanimation is a life for a life transaction, perhaps King Balon’s death provided the magic to bring back Jon.

    The winner for the game of thrones this week was Wun Wun the giant

      And the mountain too!

      I kept thinking that it was a bit convenient to have Balon die now, but the connection to Melisandre, the leeches, and Jon’s resurrection is very compelling. And both Wun Wun and The Mountain got to do some serious bashing!

    I'm glad you are back

    Great to hear you are back doing the podcast. I was worried you would not continue without Robin, because your show is much better than other GOT review shows I listen to. When you announced you had a new co-host I was sure it would be John from Jupiter’s Rooster, but after listening last week I can see Abe will do just fine. I like that you included the listener feedback with the review show in one podcast. I was not a big fan of it being broken up into two shows last time.

    It was great to see Bran this episode and I can’t wait for more flashbacks. Its nice that Jon has been resurrected this early in the season. I wouldn’t like it if it was dragged out and I’m looking forward to seeing Alister Thorne’s reaction when he sees Jon for the first time.

    Keep up the good work.

      Thanks, Craig!

      Thanks for your feedback, Craig! I definitely considered John as a cohost, but of my friends Abe’s breadth of knowledge on GoT made him the natural fit. And I’ll definitely miss Robin, but he will be sharing his thoughts with us from time to time.

      I too am glad that Jon’s return wasn’t stretched out any further. I’m curious to see if he is transformed in any way by this experience. And I’m actually looking forward to seeing Olly’s reaction to Jon’s return more so than Alliser’s!

  3. Fluids comments for Game of Thrones: Season 6: Episode 2: Home

    Hey Roberto and Abe!

    I loved the last podcast and your combined energy.

    Here’s my comments for Game of Thrones: Season 6: Episode 2: Home

    I gave this one an 80 out of 100.

    I never believed the producers when they said Jon Snow would not be back this season, and he was resurrected exactly the way I expected him to be resurrected (which was fine.) Mel has been doubtful of her abilities since Stannis failed against the Boltons at Winterfell. As it’s been pointed out in the past on this podcast, Game of Thrones really seems to be a story about two characters Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. I am not sure if it’s a love story or a story of the Targaryens laid onto of the history of a fantasy world. In either case, killing off Jon Snow didn’t make sense so I am not surprised he is back. It does seem like though the only way to get ahead in this world is to have magic on your side.

    The Good:

    • Ned, Benjen, Hodor (Wyllis), Old Nan?, Ned’s father? and Lyanna Stark. I actually loved the flashbacks with Brandon and the three eyed Raven. Especially the way Brandon was walking through it.

    • Tyrion releasing the Dragons. His story of dragons as a child was touching. Why he wasn’t roasted alive was kind of curious (see the unknown.)

    • Lord Bolton joins the list of the dead. This was something I have expected for a while. Ramsay has been squaring off mentally with his father for a few seasons now and that has been brought to its natural conclusion.

    • Hodor back story! What you talking about Wyllis!? (See the unknown).

    The Bad:

    • This show still likes shock factor over storylines and back story. This makes the deaths for me less impactful.
    Balon Greyjoy spends 6 seasons of losing battle after battle in the War of Five Kings. All of a sudden his brother Euron comes out of nowhere and kills him. We get quick little bits of backstory moments before Euron pitches his brother off of a walk bridge. Apparently Balon thought Euron was lost at sea and there is little else I know about him making his murder of Balon not very significant to me. Who cares? Balon wasn’t that interesting to me as a character other than being Theon’s father. Did Euron feel that Balon wronged him in some way or was he just drunk with power thinking it was his time over his brother (I am the drowned god)? Who cares…Is this change in personnel all of sudden going to make the Iron Isles a superpower worthy to go up against Ramsay Bolton or another Kingdom House? I don’t think so…The iron price has been paid. That’s all I got from this.

    • I still don’t understand the power the Sparrow has over Tommen or King’s Landing so I doesn’t have the impact of conflict it could have. I don’t see how the King and his guards are powerless against the Faith Militant.
    Cersei (as by Order of the King) allowed for the creation of the power of Faith Militant. Can’t the King order the dismantling of it as well if he thought it wielded too much power (especially over his own office; including the Royal family? Even Jaime is revolting against the Sparrow. I supposed it’s more dramatic if there was battle rather than the King just dismantles them by decree.

    The Unknown:

    • Where the heck did Jon Snow’s soul go when he was dead?

    • Will the Men of the Nights Watch and the Wildlings rally behind Jon Snow?

    • Is Jon still technically the Lord Commander? If not, who is?

    • Does anyone envision Jon and the Wildlings leading a battle against Ramsay Bolton? If that does happen, will House Umber rally behind Jon Snow?

    • If Jon Snow still is Lord Commander, can he actually do such a thing (a battle of the bastards) or does he have to stay at the Wall? Do his vows still apply?

    • What happened to Wyllis to cause him to just say Hodor? Who really is Hodor if he really is Wyllis?

    • Why wasn’t Tyrion roasted alive by the two dragons? Dragon’s might be intelligent, however he got into their confidence fairly quickly. Is there something about Tyrion that made them trust Tyrion besides his best weapon (his mouth)?

    • What is the King’s move in the Iron Islands? It appears Yara will go up against some other challengers for the Iron Islands Crown. Will it be against Euron or Theon?

    • Has Jon lost any part of his soul like Beric Dondarion or is he exactly the way he was before he was killed? Will he spare the lives of Ser Alliser, Ollie and the other conspirators?

      Thanks for your thoughtful and thorough feedback as always, Fluids! We’ll be sure to address some of your questions in our next episode!


      • Thanks!

        I think Tommen falls into the same situation Sansa fell into with being the victim whipping boy for other characters. The wonderful thing (and relief) about Sansa is she has grown into the Lady role over Season Five and Six.

        Tommen has been cowering behind closed doors for about 4-5 episodes now. It’s getting tiring. It’s unclear if he’s just a child that needs to grow up or he has a moral conflict about acting against the Sparrow because in his mind that is acting against god. That’s the other thing that makes the whole Faith Militant versus King’s Landing thing kind of flounder for me.

        • A couple of more things that crossed my mind:

          A couple of more things that crossed my mind.
          Gendry is the only true Baratheon that may still be alive. Where is he?

          Benjen keeps coming up again and again. Where is he? What happened to him? Bran should be able to see what became of him with the three eyed Raven right?
