In this episode we analyze the prologue from A Storm of Swords, including a look at Chett’s background, a walk through of the prologue chapter itself, and a detailed look at the Fist of the First Men and what happened to the men of the Night’s Watch after the end of Chett’s chapter until the final time we see him on page.
In this episode we go right back to the beginning of the series, analyzing the Will Prologue from AGoT and looking closely at the role of prologues in epic fantasy, the characters we meet in the chapter, the Others, the Night’s Watch, and the major themes of death and fear in ASoIaF.
Lady Gwyn and yolkboy look at the Long Night of ancient times. We examine all the textual clues, including some new hints from TWoIaF, but this episode is also full of speculation on the history and nature of the Others, the Night’s Watch, Lightbringer, the Last Hero, Azor Ahai and more. With exclusive music from Robb Dylan and readings set to specially arranged music. Join us for a journey into Westeros’ murky past!
