We are back and fully loaded for the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, The Bells. Matt, David, Catherine, and Annie are all here to discuss the episode that was. We talk about madness, military strategy, and who'll be ruling the seven kingdoms once all the dust settles. As always, this will be spoiler heavy so if you haven't watched the episode, do so before you listen.
This week David is off for his birthday. Catherine joins Matt to discuss the latest episode, The Last of the Starks. As always, this will be spoiler heavy so if you haven't watched the episode, turn back now. With only two episodes left, we talk about how rushed everything feels. Nothing feels earned, even if we agree on where it's heading.
Maria & I are back to discuss what we've been doing the past couple of weeks. Maria has been reading a lot and Matt has been watching a lot of TV. We're joined by a special guest, Danis. She's here to talk about the local authors fair that's happening later this month. Stay tuned for another episode of checking in.
