Watching The Thrones is a video series dedicated to in depth analysis and discussion around the second season of the HBO series Game of Thrones, in the context of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series written by George R.R. Martin. Westeros doesn’t play by rules, and its inhabitants are tortured beings pregnant with power. We don’t know when the creators of the HBO show will deviate from the source material; we don’t even know when George R. R. Martin will finish the books. All we can do is observe what happens on this damned continent and hope that the characters don’t live long enough for us to fall in love.
Blake Graham and Eric Harsh briefly discuss the major events of “What is Dead May Never Die” before exploring the nuance of “Garden of Bones.” This episode is full of non sequitur laughs and hate for the child-king Joffrey. We touch on Robb Stark‘s poor exit strategy, the struggles of the small people, Melisandre’s demon child born in a cave, Tyrion’s ability to maintain the better hand, and Dany’s attempts at strength.
