Clare Kramer and Brendan Cowles discuss episode 4 of this season, “Sons of the Harpy.” Who is Jon Snow… and why does he continue to know nothing? Find out our hypotheses and more.

  • David Johnson

    Melisandre says theirs a fire within her & proves it by having Jon Snow feel Her skin last episode.

    • Clare Kramer

      Melisandre is on a quest for the royal blood, and she KNOWS more about who Jon Snow is than Jon himself at this point. After being lead on to believe Jon was Ned Stark’s bastard son for so long, I think Stanis makes it clear when he states to his wife, “That wasn’t Ned Stark’s way” that there’s more to it. Ned’s way was to protect family… his sister….

      • David Johnson

        Do You think Gendry will ever show back up from his rowboat ride???? Melisandre took I think some of his blood for a specific reason before Davos helped Him escape!!!

  • David Johnson

    Grey scale can be a biological weapon & not just a random caught disease!

  • David Johnson

    Do the Sparrows seem to be dressed better as if their being slowly corrupted by Cersi. Plus she’s probably going to add the High Sparrow to the small council trying to corrupt him with power.

  • Dale Baines

    Wonderful review of a great episode! I kinda enjoyed just having the two of you, Clare and Brendan, discuss the episode. Feels more calm and I like that you guys were actually having a conversation without constantly interrupting each other.

  • David Johnson

    Don’t think the guy going to the iron bank is coming back. Think the Kings Guard was more of a hit man on this!

    • Clare Kramer

      Definitely not… he’s an easy gonner.

      • Ben Tramer

        Knew he was a goner the second she appointed him to that position. The council has no room for happy folk!

  • David Johnson

    Jorah was actually Robert Baratheons Spy & was suppose to set up either Danny or Her Late Brother or both for assassination!!!!

    • Liz K Clark

      That’s why he was banished by Dany.

      • David Johnson

        I think during the podcast they thought he was a Lannister spy.

  • HyperJ

    Great podcast, but the consistent butchering of two names is bugging the heck out of me: 🙂

    1. YGRITTE. (pronounced EE-grit, like the bird ‘Egret’) – Not Ingrid!

    2. Also it is Daenerys (pronounced Dan-erys), not Danerious. 😉

    • Clare Kramer

      Hahaha. Thanks! I’m the worst at this…. half my friends hate me.

      • Liz K Clark

        Don’t worry we love you. It’s your southern roots coming out. There are so many names that’s why people listen to review podcasts to help keep them sorted.

        • Ben Tramer

          HA! I dont think anyone knows the names. I can barely follow who is who and I watch episodes multiple times! Great podcast guys 😉

  • Liz K Clark

    Obviously missing Arya this episdoe – but aside from that thought it was the best episode this season so far. Sister Sansa is turning darker, and although she appears to still be a pawn in Littlefinger’s plan, I do feel she’ll be coming into her own in terms of thinking for herself. It was sad when she replied to Littlefinger that by the time he returned she would be married, but I feel like in the next six episodes she’ll assert herself more and more, now that she sees/understands Littlefinger’s plan to make her queen of the North again. Also, not much Tyrion this episode but I too, Clare, loved the line about “waste of a good kidnapping!” Peter Dinklage is perfect in the role. I hope he wins another Emmy. As far as the Sons of the Harpy, the masks freak me out too – and I have more hope for Gray Worm than Ser Barristan, as Brenden said, he was impaled and not much hope for survival.

  • Dez Blackworm

    Ok, so like the Sparrows are like the extreeeeeme right-wing…. HELLO!!! Cersi Lannister??? Incest and all?? I mean, you would think she’d be called into question by these fanatics; no? But maybe since she’s bankrolling their campaign; it’s all good, ya know. She get a pass. 🙂

    • I’m still questioning whether or not the High Sparrow is even involved… He didn’t seem interested in Cersi’s retribution side of things.
