It Is Known Episode 34
Season seven of Game of Thrones has begun and with it comes a new season of It Is Known, Word of the Nerd‘s podcast dedicated to the smash HBO series Game of Thrones. This season we have ventured completely away from the books so even our veteran readers have no knowledge of what might happen from episode to episode. This season we’ve expanded our cast so there will be new cast members rotating in and out of each episode.
This week Bryan Brown, Dera Stark, and Riley Sinclair discuss this week’s episode Stormborn. There are lots of feels in this week’s episode as we have to say goodbye to some characters and change our predictions for the rest of the season. This episode runs long and we stray a little off topic toward the end, you’ve been warned.
Be sure to comment below if you’d be interested in listening to our Game of Thrones book club idea brought up last week.
Arya meets up with an old friend and hears some news that alters her plans to continue toward Kings Landing. At Winterfell, those of able body, including the children are being trained for the battle to come. Sam makes a breakthrough in his research and defies the orders of the Archmaester to try and treat Jorah Mormont. Jon receives a message from Daenerys inviting him to Dragonstone to “bend the knee”. Sansa and the other lords try to persuade him not to go, but Jon decides to meet with the Mother of Dragons even knowing it could be a trap. Lord Balish tries to manipulate Jon while reminiscing about the past, but Jon sees through his deceptive nature.
