The emotions swell in this episode as we get together at the start of the final season of Game of Thrones. This episode really does feel special, after waiting almost two years to get some closure. In this episode the gang is almost all back together, and we start to see the fallout of last season and prepare for the final battle. Samwell gets some bad news, Jon hurts his balls, and Bran is freaking everyone the F out.

  1. Holy balls! Y’all were so fucking on point this episode! I missed you so much! It’s like the ultimate tantric podcast. 595 days of buildup cascading over my eardrums was the ultimate catharsis. Glad you spent a solid two hours on it as well. It’s just like the old days! You came so hard with the best japes. From Tim’s Bronn hot dog prostitutes to Jennifer’s, “You smell like my mom’s pussy”, I was laughing the entire god damn time! Can’t go without praising Thrifty as the ultimate straight man and Nick with his out-of-this-world humor. You guys are the best.

  2. Just throwing out a prediction for the season here: Jon and Dany both die, Arya steals both their faces, marries herself, and rules the seven kingdoms as king and queen. Then the final episode will be like Fight Club with JonArya standing in the throne room making proclamations, then he leaves, and DanyArya immediately walks in and starts talking. Tyrion and Varys, being smart cookies, immediately see through her acting, but decide to roll with it.

  3. I believe the Night King will be an Iron Born. Their slogan “what is dead may never die” is in reference to the dead coming back to life.

  4. OMG! ive literally waited 2 years for you guys to come back yo GOT! Amazing group of people. Made me LOL through the whole show. Love you guys and keep on riding that wight donkey!

  5. Just listened to this again yesterday. Been going through old Alt Shift X videos, and you guys were the only podcast I listened to religiously. Love-Hate listening to your excitement for the final season, haha! Thanks for all of these, I’m so nostalgic for the theories, predictions and hype that was all of GoT!;)
