Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 7 recap SPOILERS All season we’ve been seeing women rise to power across Westeros, and this week the power shift continues. Some have said that the shift is due to the showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, responding to years of criticism lobbed at them for the brutal and degrading treatment of women on Game of Thrones. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 6 recap You can really feel the downhill run coming as the story advances by leaps this week. Let’s start with the part no one cares about, the Lannisters and Tyrells and High Sparrow. The Tyrell army shows up to liberate Margaery and Loras, but Margaery basically saved herself by getting Tommen to convert and align with the High Sparrow. Full Story

After an intense episode that opened up a huge new avenue of possibilities for Game of Thrones, we’ve got a lot to discuss, theory-wise. One of the great joys of this show is all the speculating as we try to guess what will happen next or how the various disjointed characters and pieces of narrative will fit together. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 5 recap SPOILERS One word, that has meant so many other words. A single word that was so often a joke, a punchline, the word that broke through the brutality and death and tragedy with brief moments of humor—a word no one took seriously. Until the moment when Hodor held the door, and “Hodor” becomes one of the most powerful words in Game of Thrones. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 4 recap SPOILERS A note from last week. I mentioned that there are two Stark direwolves left, Summer and Ghost. I had a line about Nymeria, Arya’s wayward wolf, banished in season one because the Lannisters are petty f*cking assholes, but I cut it because since we haven’t seen hide nor hair of Nymeria in five years, she doesn’t count as a player on the board. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 3 recap SPOILERS In the wake of Jon Snow’s resurrection, we’ve wondered what the “rules” are of his second life. Is he, like Beric Dondarrion, missing “pieces” of himself? Or is his resurrection somehow different? This week’s episode has a Stark-centric theme of the known and the unknown, and right now Jon Snow inhabits the space between the two. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 2 recap SPOILERS, THESE WILL ALWAYS BE SPOILERS So, it happened. The single most important thing on Game of Thrones happened. Tyrion let the dragons go. But they didn’t leave the pyramid! Get off your lazy asses, dragons! There are enemies to eat and things to burn down! The dragon sound design is PHENOMENAL—it would have been so easy to borrow pre-existing sound from, say, Jurassic Park dinosaurs, but the dragons sound unique, and they have never sounded better. Full Story

What got me was Ghost. Ghost’s wailing because he couldn’t get to his best friend. I mean, if you’ve ever had a dog… Or maybe even if you’ve never had a dog. I don’t think I was ever “sad” about Jon Snow “dying” until Ghost’s howls gave me the feelings. Full Story

Game Of Thrones, the first episode of season 6 on Sunday… Duana texted me a few minutes in, right after the scene between Cersei and Jaime, and she’s like, I knew my kids would die because the old witch told me the prophecy. His response: “F-ck prophecy, f-ck fate, f-ck everyone who isn’t us. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 1 recap SPOILERS We’re back! And we’re having a coming out party for the women of Westeros. When we began this series the story was dominated by men and women were too often pawns, manipulating or sexing their way to power with little real agency of their own. Full Story
