I am very sorry that there was no Game of Thrones recap this week. I was able to go out with adult women on Sunday night for wine and conversation, which is a rare occurrence. I’m working on the winners and losers, and I should have it up tomorrow. To make up for my negligence,... Read more »

10 Game of Thrones characters who are not allowed to die
My agency sister, Donna Hosie (read her books), tweeted something last night that got my brain moving. I think I could probably handle any death in #GameofThrones now – except Jorah Mormont. That would kill me! pic.twitter.com/uPzZuLBTXA — Donna Hosie (@donnahosie) May 26, 2016 Jorah’s death has always felt like an inevitability to me. He’s... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Door

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Door
I started rereading A Game of Thrones last night. The first Bran chapter where the Stark men find the direwolves killed me. Remember when everyone was together and happy and their biggest problem was having to deal with that smug jerk store, Theon? Those were the days. Here are this week’s winners and losers. Hi,...

Game of Thrones recap: The Door

Game of Thrones recap: The Door
Oh, jeepers that was a sad one. “Hold the door” morphing into “Hodor” is the new “Numb arm” becoming “Narm.” I think we can all agree on that. at least we will be able to agree once we stop bawling about what happened in this episode. Obviously we know to which door the title refers,... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: Book of the Stranger
Have we see that same Daenerys scene fifty times already over the course of the series? It feels like every other episode ends with Daenerys figuring out a way to get a crowd of people to kneel before her. BORING. Let’s talk about other things. The Wall: I got chills.

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Oathbreaker

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Oathbreaker
Hi, all! Again I had issues with HBO Go freezing up on me. I’m starting to think it’s me. I’ll try to have it worked out next week, but you’ll find the pictures this week are a mishmash of old and new, good and bad. Kind of like the characters on Game of Thrones itself.... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: Oathbreaker

Game of Thrones Recap: Oathbreaker
And now a lot of people’s watches have ended. There was much oath breaking in this episode, much breaking oaths and going rogue. Let’s check in with all our buddies. The Wall: Whoa. So many things. Jon Snow is ALIVE, but you knew that already. And, apparently, he’s totally Jon Snow. The Jon Snow we... Read more »

Lies my mother told me
