The Wall has been watched, gifts have been given, and Six is coming. This week leads us into the year’s tenth episode, one final occasion to celebrate a dedicated community’s journey through A Storm of Swords.
We have one last batch of Owns to collect before the year reaches its close. Join us in this revisitation of boundless feels, chills, and excitement. This special episode (with a few special guests) records Wednesday night!
Let this collection (of some) of our favorite moments from A Storm of Swords serve as a guide to your submissions. This is but a shallow list. Will you help us fill it?
There and back again
Jon turned his cloak, and lived to tell the tale. Are we numb to the height of tension and drama this story reaches? Climbing the Wall aside, he made a series of seriously bold moves.
Lads, gents, good sers
Thanks to this brotherhood of loyal men for some of GOO’s strongest and longest pauses for laughter and song. But to meet them again at the end with our new friend, it’s almost too perfect.
Hand of the King
From a salty, lonely rock to a dungeon of pitch black, Davos became the One True Hand of the King. Yes.
The new Warden
Roose Bolton lied, cheated, and subverted his King to replace the Starks as the North’s great power. He’s a dirty bastard.
Mance’s vast accomplishments
Mance Rayder united the free folk. HE MARCHED ON THE WALL.
Tyrion and Sansa get married
This really happened.
Arya left it all behind
Beautiful weasel soup. Best friends. Bad dreams. Real adventure, real change. Arya leaves Westeros, an incredibly cruel cliffhanger is born.
The Red Wedding
Jon wins again. He is your Lord Commander, Thorne.
Murdered at his own wedding
Tough break, Joff.
The plot thickens
Lysa tells all. Littlefinger is a busy man.
With Storm, the podcast experienced a true change in Jaime Lannister. He did it.
Bran and company crossed into the real North through a magical passage beneath the Wall.
The One True King
Stannis, the One True Mannis, turned his attention from usurpers to the North and the Kingdoms’ great enemy.
We’re saying bye, once and for all, to a book we’ve traveled together for so long — in the final episode of the year. If you’ve read the book (or followed along), tell us your favorite moments from A Storm of Swords!
Thanks for an amazing 2015. It’s been an awesome year with the lot of you.
