Bonus Episode! Season 7 Predictions

Ep. 10: Scheme Queens  

It’s the episode that changed everything. Following GoT’s super-sized finale, James and Darren debate that Tower of Joy reveal, applaud Tommen’s suicidal decisiveness, wonder exactly how attracted Sansa is to Littlefinger, and mourn the loss of doom-magnet Margaery.

Ep. 9: Behind the Bastard Bowl  

The most epic ‘Thrones’ ever? We break down the shocks, deaths and twists in ‘Battle of the Bastards,’ with James detailing what it was really like on the show's battlefield set in Northern Ireland (spiders and a shirtless Kit Harington are involved), while Darren analyzes that unexpected Meereenese dragon threeway.

Ep. 8: Say Her Name  

A girl strikes back! This week’s episode was relatively bloodless, but Darren makes a case for “No One” being the show’s best episode in years. James and Darren talk parkour Arya’s showdown with the Terma-Waif, Jaime’s tense workplace romance reunion with Brienne, Tommen’s cowardly betrayal of Cersei, and all the fan theories this episode ruined.

Ep. 7: The Talks and The Hound  

A long-lost character returns – but we’re too busy talking about Lyanna Mormont, the most badass Northern 10-year-old since Arya left Winterfell. James and Darren chat about “The Broken Man,” an episode of tense Tyrell talks, glorious Greyjoy gatherings, and one bilious Blackfish.

Ep. 6: Coldhands, Warm Hearts  

Why is Tommen such a disappointing wimp? How weird is it that we're actually GAINING Starks this season? How much motivation do the Dothraki need, exactly? Could an entire episode be built around Gilly being amazed by ordinary things? There's a lot to discuss in "Blood of My Blood" – especially the lack of blood! – so let James and Darren try to explain who Coldhands is and why the Riverlands are so important.
