Although it feels like it’s still a million years away, April is drawing closer, and with it the premiere of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. With that in mind, The Night’s Cast, the official podcast of Watchers on the Wall, has begun its Season 7 recap, and we’ll be diving a little deeper from now on by covering one episode of the penultimate season with each new episode of the podcast!
This week, Vanessa, Petra and Samantha are joined by the lovely and talented Eliana, one half of the incredible Girls Gone Canon podcast and a co-host of Maester Monthly, as we cover Episode 1 of Season 7, “Dragonstone.”
The Night’s Cast is available on iTunes and SoundCloud, and you can follow us on Twitter as well. Happy listening!
Oh, what the hell.
Did everyone just see that HBO commercial during the Globes?? SPOILER BELOW (I’ve forgotten how to do spoiler tags)
Winterfell is yours, your grace! :O
Yes, I did!! I am now patiently waiting for the post to break down the short clip haha
It was like 5 seconds of footage but it made me so happy!
Yes! Me too! Also, HBO posted that promo on their Instagram! Now watching on repeat.
WHAT! What was Dany wearing under the white coat? Was that a Targaryen turtle neck?
Yeah, I ain’t too pleased with that line, lol.
Great to get some footage though.
No articles on the new bit of trailer HBO released? I know it’s just a bit but I expected a post discussing it.
That was a fantastic recap of the first episode of Season Seven. Really brought me back.
I had forgotten that that was the episode with Arya meeting up with Ed Sheeren and the Lannisters. Eliana has a point about their armor, but that is more a criticism of the show than that scene. Each region in Westeros has distinctive armor stylings for the troops, be they knights or footmen. On the show, I mean. It’s clear in the books that some troops might be lucky to even have a helmet that doubles as a stew bowl. But we have only ever seen Lannister soldiers on the show in excellent and complete armor.
Kudos on the comparison of the Jon/Sansa scene and the Cersei/Jaime scene. I missed that completely.
I am not a fan of Tormund/Brienne shipping, but I don’t think it is unusual for Tormund to be attracted to her. We can agree it is wrong of Tormund to relentlessly pursue her rather than consider that being wrong of the show. (i.e. I don’t expect Tormund to behave gallantly.)
I was thinking about what Sam said about the cold open not delivering a shocking surprise, but for that to happen, we would have had to not see Arya kill Walder Frey, and I would not want to miss Frey pie.
Anyway, outstanding podcast!
