Episode Description: Edit

Ivan & Red cover pp 250-292 (Eddard, Jon, Eddard, Cat). Maester Pycelle does a good job of making himself seem untrustworthy, internal Ned is a genius, Sam Tarley the two-eyed craven weighs in at 280 lbs, the bullheaded bastard makes a bull head, and Cat calls her bannermen just to catch up. Next week we'll be reading pp 293-337 (Sansa, Eddard, Tyrion).

  • no "Ravens From the Bannermen" this week because red says he is lazy.
  • The guys do however make recommendations about other media that they are currently consuming!
  • Sweaty Ned is discussed and true to the source material.
  • Ned still is smarter in the book! just say what your thinking out loud and you wont die!
