and Stefan are joined by a very special guest to talk about a very
special episode! Emmett Booth, the ASoIaF analyst behind the widely read
Poor Quentyn tumblr and a maester at ASoIaF University, hops aboard the BLAH train to discuss the shocking revelations of “The Door,” this week’s episode of Game of Thrones,
and use this mid-point opportunity to take stock of the season thus
far. What do the secret origins of the White Walkers and Hodor mean for
both the show and the books? What does the current political status quo
portend for the future, in terms of both plot and theme? What’s wrong
with the Game of Thrones critical discourse? Is the show…evil?
