EPISODE 55 – TWOW PRIMER, PART 2 – JOURNEYS

Our series recapping all the arcs, threads, and theories of what will be happening in the beginning of TWoW continues with a look at some characters we expect to be making Journeys in TWoW. We begin with Bran, north of the Wall, then visit Arya in Braavos and Sansa in the Vale, and conclude with Davos and Rickon. Along the way we address who is Coldhands, why Arya will need yet another new identity early in TWoW, a tourney in the Vale, and why fans are convinced Davos and Rickon are on Skagos. All this and more, as we refresh our view of what’s going on with the Stark siblings.
