Game of Thrones s1e5 Rewind: “The Wolf and the Lion”
Here’s where it all really gets started. The assassination of Jon Arryn leads the Starks and Lannisters into conflict. Varys and Littlefinger plot their individual plots, and joust with one another (verbally) while the Mountain and the Knight of Flowers joust with one another (literally). Robert and Cersei have a cold, clear conversation. And is killing Dany and her unborn child the right move for a thoroughly Peter Principled King Robert to make? We break it all down.
(Spoilers for seasons 1-7 are inside. Don’t listen if you’re a first-time viewer!)
