The Battle of Blackwater

The first two seasons of Game of Thrones have been full of scheming, backstabbing, and every sort of morally bankrupt political manipulation imaginable, and it has all been leading up to this. The Battle of Blackwater is the titular Clash of Kings, and the episode depicting it is the most climactic and exciting installment of the series to date.


The Prince of Winterfell

The eighth episode of the second season of Game of Thrones is slower than the past few, yet pieces in the game are clearly being moved into position for the titanic finale.


A Man Without Honor

When someone refers to a man without honor in Westeros, chances are its Jaime Lannister. The Kingslayer is back in the spotlight in the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, and he is as villainous and interesting as ever.


The Ghost of Harrenhal

True to the title, this episode of Game of Thrones is full of cryptic magic and creatures that stalk in the darkness.


Watching The Thrones 04: Episode 4 ‘Garden of Bones’

Blake Graham and Eric Harsh briefly discuss the major events of “What is Dead May Never Die” before tackling 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.


Garden of Bones

The night is dark and full of terrors, and this installment of Game of Thrones has no shortage of terrors.


What Is Dead May Never Die

While challenging gender roles and exploring minor characters, the third episode of the second season of Game of Thrones brought the most engaging action and most dynamic plot developments the season has seen yet.


Watching The Thrones 03: Episode 2 ‘The Night Lands’

In the third episode of Watching the ‘Thrones,’ Blake J. Graham and Eric Harsh analyze the second episode of season two: The Night Lands. The plot picks up with more logistical layout, but takes time to focus on some characters. Tyrion Lannister begins to flex his muscles as hand to the king proving he doesn’t play by the rules like Ned Stark did. We touch on the Theon Greyjoy‘s trip back home, Stannis Baratheon‘s strange relationship with Melisandre and Jon Snow‘s encounters beyond the Wall.


The Night Lands

Last season of Game of Thrones saw the main character losing his head. While this season’s main character stands a head shorter than the rest, he is very much alive and kicking.


Watching The Thrones 02: Season 2 Premiere

In the second episode, Blake J. Graham and Eric Harsh discuss the events of the Game of Thrones season two premiere. There’s a lot of table-setting to pull in viewers who have lost a sense of power of the characters and the sheer size of the Westeros continent. As Eric points out in his post-episode article, we’re introduced to a new subset of characters (Stannis, Melisandre, Davos) who easily blend into the cast.
