Rachel, Clare and Brendan discuss the Season 5 Episode 9 “The Dance of Dragons.”

  • David Johnson

    Had Me scared there, thought somehow it was only Live on Periscope today (can’t watch at work). Hell Sad Wookie was in the fetal position locked in his room! But Now All Is Well In The World GoT Podcast Time!!!!!!

  • David Johnson

    Geology & GoT Knowledge at the same time, Multi Tasking Knowledge!!!!

  • David Johnson

    Are We Sure White Walkers Can’t Talk?????

    • Brendan Cowles

      Aaaughghhhhh.
      That’s talking… right?

      • David Johnson

        I think the Wights just howl & grunt but I think when White walkers really enter the story line next season the leaders will probably be able to communicate. Think that’s why they introduced that the Hot Wilding, think She’ll become a White Walker instead of a Wight!

  • David Johnson

    Think Stannis is trying to create another Smoke Monster/Assassin or something even Bigger!!!!

    • Brendan Cowles

      definitely going to be some witchcraft involved in the siege….

  • David Johnson

    Saw an interesting theory online that Jaqen is actually Syrio Forel, Arya’s Sword Instructor. Considering the main reason she wants to kill Meryn Trant.

    • Brendan Cowles

      I think Syrio is alive and kicking in Braavos. If Jaqen turns into Syrio then it’s because he’s a god and can shapeshift, not because it’s actually Syrio. IMHO

      • David Johnson

        Yea I liked Your theory on the PC that Hes back in Braavos, but to bring him back this season they’d probably need a flashback scene & they don’t have time for it. Well We know Jaqen can shapeshift He already did it in front of Arya way back in Season 2.

  • David Johnson

    Arya could Face Shift & head off to take out Meryn as a cliff hanger!

    • Brendan Cowles

      Pretty sure we’re gonna get to see her take him out. I’ll bet the cliff hanger stuff will be battle related. Either Stannis at Winterfell (Sansa) or Whitewalkers hitting Castle Black… or both

      • David Johnson

        With only 1 episode left I think next week is going to be a Cliff Hanger every 10 minutes if not 5! Think the original Smoke Man was made by Milisandra just burning normal people on the beach then maybe getting kinky with Stannis (lucky bastard) so burning Royal Blood is going to produce Super Smoke Man!!!!

  • David Johnson

    Or could Jaqen face shift in front of Meryn

  • David Johnson

    The Dragons & Dany are mentally connected!!!

    • Brendan Cowles

      Totally.

  • David Johnson

    Ellaria was just sharing Her wine with Homies That Are Gone (Oberyn)!

  • David Johnson

    Lots Of Loose Ends Next Week!!!!!!

  • David Johnson

    Why were the Harpies killing so many rich people.

  • David Johnson

    I think the big cliff hanger is that GoT is actually the Neverending Story

  • Dale Baines

    Rachel, can you please screaming over Clare and Brendan all the time? Please let them finish their point before jumping in. I know you’re excited but it’s kinda frustrating from a listening point of view. I can’t keep lowering the volume because it really takes away from the listening experience, not to mention it’s really annoying hearing someone constantly cut the other person off midpoint, even if you are the host. Much appreciated.

  • David Johnson

    Hopefully Dany goes & gets the other 2 dragons, because everyone in the pit is getting ready to get killed!

  • Dale Baines

    Brendan, all your criticisms of Dorne, I completely agree with! Especially the whole build up to nothing regarding Bron’s punishment. I thought they were going to chop off his hand or something like that but all that for just a stupid punch to the face? It was not that funny and complete waste of time.

    • Brendan Cowles

      Ha! So funny, I was thinking they might chop his hand off too… then he and Jamie would have matching stumps.

    • David Johnson

      Considering how little time is left in the season it was a complete waste of film!

  • Clare Kramer

    Enjoy guys – can’t believe only one episode left! Thanks for listening and weighing in below. xo

  • Miss T

    For Tyrine I was thinking more of the lines of expression as WOW it really is a dragon and everything he has read or heard is coming to life in his face and that he is just in aaawww of it. As for the show unless its two hours which I doubt everything will not be wrapped up. There’s still a trial to be had no way that is going to take 15 mins to wrap up. Jon’s fate with the nightswatch, Evil child killer Stannis has to reach Winterfell so we can see that battle, We gotta see what Sansa and Reek are going to do, Dany and the Dragons and Arya and YO the WHITE WALKER ARE COMING… there’s just too much to wrap up in 1 hour so I think we are going to be happy and disappointed and have to wait a year. Good thing they start shooting next month.Sorry for misspelling character names.

    • Brendan Cowles

      All good points. No way can they get to all of this…

    • David Johnson

      Think their going to piss off a lot of fans & have a Cliff Hanger ever 5 to 10 minutes!

  • Natalie Drozda

    So I think Ellaria was saying that her relationship with Oberyn was frowned upon because she was a bastard, not because she was common. (In Dorne, bastards are called “Sand” unlike in the north where they are all called “Snow.”)

    • Brendan Cowles

      Thank you Natalie for clearing that up. Makes sense, but still pretty far from analogous to incest. They sure are going out of their way this season to make it clear that Jamie and Cersei’s forbidden love is practically common knowledge. Is there anyone that doesn’t know they were doing it?

      • David Johnson

        Think only Robert Baratheon was the only person in the 7 kingdoms that didn’t know!

  • Brendan Cowles

    So… a few factoids that make for interesting possibilities:
    The seven kingdoms were first united by Targaryen dragon riders.
    And clearly all things dragon (valyrian steel, dragon glass, the three dragons) will play a huge role in the battle with the undead
    Dany just flew off on Drogon.
    And there are two more dragons…
    Who will be the other two dragon riders? If they’re not Targaryen they’ll end up crispy if they try to mount one of these suckers so…
    Now that Maester Aemon is dead, isn’t Dany the last Targ?
    The popular R+L=J theory says Jon is actually a Targ. I can totally see him on one of the other two.
    So who else… Obviously Tyrion would be at the very top of the list of who we would WANT to see on a freakin dragon and it would make the most dramatic sense,
    But he’s not Targaryen…. or IS HE?
    Theory out there says he is…
    There is book evidence that suggests his mother had an “encounter” with the Mad King who had the hots for her.
    Tywinn’s hatred of Tyrion goes beyond his dwarfitude, and he flat out says you’re no son of mine at least once
    Tyrion has white blond hair in the books — signature Targaryen feature (this is a pretty major clue)
    Tyrion has dreamt of dragons all of his life… (So has Jon it is implied, and obviously Dany)
    A true dragon is “born of blood” … Tyrion, Jon and Dany all had mothers that died giving birth to them. They were all born of blood
    The “dragon has three heads” was part of Dany’s vision/prophecy at the House of the Undying in the book. The three heads refer to the riders.
    The show’s version of Dany’s visions at the H of the U (Season 2) simplified it to three locations (of the dragon riders…??) The Wall (Jon), The throne room (Tyrion), Drogo’s tent (Dany)
    Then last season Daario used three different flowers to explain “strategy” to Dany on their way to Mereen: white, blue (it was a blue rose!), and red/gold.
    And we know nothing is by accident…
    Everything about Dany is white. We’ve been hit over the head with Blue roses as a symbol for Jon and the Wall, and so that leaves the red/gold…
    Oh yeah, those are the colors of House Lannister… pretty huge coincidence don’t you think?
    Probably will have to wait for next season or longer to find out IF there are other dragon riders and WHO they will be but I’m saying now (and I’m not alone)…
    Dany – Jon – Tyrion… will be riding mother effing dragons and raining fire down on whitewalkers. How would that be for a SERIES finale image…
    Anywho… just sayin

    • David Johnson

      Well She has to at least free the other 2 dragons next week. Which as many loose ends as there are already might be all they do. You couldn’t hold that in with no Bonus episode podcast could You!!!

    • Miss T

      @brendancowles:disqus I like where you are going with this. You reminded me of some key points too. Ty sr. did say to Tyrion a couple of times you’re no son of mine and I kept thinking early on why does he keep saying that. I think you are on to something here. I’m no book reader but if he did have white hair like Dany’s that would be something. The only thing I have to disagree on here with your theory is the 3rd rider. I still think Bran is going to be one of the riders or worg(sp) into one of the dragons. One side note…I thought that was the 1st Darrio who explained the flowers b/f he was replaced with the Nashville Darrio (he use to play on ABC’s Nashville). I could be wrong…Anywhoo I think your onto something. Now I gotta go take my niece to see JPark. Have a Great Weekend and can’t wait until Tomorrow!!!

      • David Johnson

        Sure won’t be solved tonight. Bet Vegas has an over/under bet on how many cliff hangers they do in episode 10. Oh took Me a couple minutes to figure out how Bran could ride one, then remembered His power.

  • vibar

    what happened to the bonus show??

    • David Johnson

      Think shooting started early on a TV Show Clare’s filming. Hopefully they still do a full bonus show to wrap the season up & make predictions. But with the True Detective 2 podcast starting next week, no telling!
