Game of Thrones S6E10 review: “The Winds of Winter”

It’s here! The season 6 finale. And not much happened, except for a whole bunch of things we’ve been waiting weeks, or years, or the entire show to happen! We break it all down and consider the season as a whole.

Game of Thrones S6E9 review: “Battle of the Bastards”

They fight. Also, some fire-breathing dragons.

Game of Thrones S6E8 review: “No One”

Season six keeps barreling ahead, and in this episode we visit Braavos for a resolution of the House of Black & White storyline, a reintroduction to the Brotherhood Without Banners, some drinking and comedy in Mereen, a royal decree in King’s Landing, and a joyous reunion at Riverrun. (Edmure and the Blackfish? Jamie and Brienne? No, Podrick and Bronn!) Also: Old Lady Clegane’s boys sure are good at killing.

Game of Thrones S6E7 review: “The Broken Man”

This week the story continues to hurtle forward, with a shocking reveal in a cold open and a visit from Septon Ian McShane. Plus Jon Snow and his band of advisers embark on their goodwill tour of the north. And Yara and Theon Greyjoy have a proper heart-to-heart talk as only the Ironborn can: While surrounded by naked ladies.

Game of Thrones S6E6 Review: “Blood of My Blood”

“Game of Thrones” pushes characters out of their comfort zones in this episode, as Arya decides whether she really wants to be an assassin, Samwell decides whether his father is even worth appeasing, and Tommen decides to just do whatever he’s told. There’s also a flood of people who may or may not have been on the show before, so people with really good memories are rewarded at least three times with dramatic end-of-scene revelations that may or may not have left people saying “…who was that, again?”

Oh, and there was a dragon!

Game of Thrones S6E5 Review: “Door”

Another huge episode of “Game of Thrones” features doors being closed and opened, women getting down to business and speaking truth to their former protectors, the origin story of both the White Walkers and Hodor, and a wild Shakespeare-like retelling of the first season of “Game of Thrones.” Is this episode a reaction to some of the criticism’s of the show last year? We break it down, this time in person, live from Jason’s garage.

Game of Thrones S6E4 review: “Book of the Stranger”

A family reunion! Diplomatic compromises! Ramsay eating an apple! Special guest Aleen Simms joins Brian to recap this week’s “Game of Thrones.” What is the High Sparrow’s long game? Why can’t the show runners stop killing women? And the burning question on everyone’s mind: What will happen to Denaerys?

Brian Hamilton and Aleen Simms


Game of Thrones S6E3 review: “Oathbreaker”

Life after death! Action flashbacks! Surprising returns of characters not seen for years! And Varys waving a very large fan. Jason and Monty are back to break down everything in this week’s “Game of Thrones.”

Game of Thrones S6E2 Review: “Home”

We know it’s a shocker, but he’s back! We refer, of course, to Bran Stark, who is warging and time-warping from a deep hole, right next to Hodor. Also we break down who’s in charge in King’s Landing, Mereen, Braavos, Winterfell, the Iron Islands, and at Castle Black. At Castle Black things just keep getting more and more complicated.

Game of Thrones S6E1 Review: “The Red Woman”

“Game of Thrones” is back with another scene-setting premiere episode. Featuring eight different locations, this is not an episode with any narrative momentum, but it does remind you about all of the pieces on the board and shows you where they may be moving this season. We break it down, including an digression about whether the religious figures in this show are serving active, interventionist gods, or if they’re just using religion to achieve their own personal ends.

Jason Snell with Monty Ashley and Brian Hamilton


Game of Thrones S5E10 review: “Mother’s Mercy”

It’s the season finale of “Game of Thrones!” So of course, nothing much happens in this episode. Except for suicides, zombie zingers, off-screen massacres, admissions of magic murder, death by long fall, death by multiple stab wounds, death by poison, the meeting of the Friends of Danerys Club, teenage dragons, a walk of shame—er, atonement, and more death by multiple stab wounds! But other than that, uneventful. We break it all down one last time.
