Steven Attewell and I decided that we didn’t want to wait until next February to continue talking about Game of Thrones, and so we decided to start over. Here’s our take on “The Kingsroad,” the series’ second episode.

Works Attewell discusses (warning, all of these posts contain spoilers for all five books):

  • Daenerys III (learning the dothraki way, cultural assimilation as a source of strength)
  • Tyrion I (slapping princes, having breakfast with his siblings, Tyrion as Richard III/Claudius)
  • Jon II (making his goodbyes,  his complicated family dynamics)
  • Catelyn III (the attack on Bran,  the ahistorical nature of “always a Stark in Winterfell,” Bran as Fisher King)
  • Sansa I (Sansa as a critique of romantic medievalism within fantasy genre)
  • Eddard III (Robert’s trial, Cersei’s political skills or lack thereof, royal justice)
