Hello Night’s Watchmen and welcome back to another (albeit late) episode of the Cast in the Darkness Podcast!
Kristina and I gather around our Television for Episode 2 of the latest Game of Thrones Season: The Lion and The Rose… Listen to what we think about this murder most vile, and what we think about spoilers in general in CitD Episode 13: Just Desserts!
I’m here with another exciting long-form Thoughts on Thrones post for you all! This time I have prepared a piece on the psychology of Joffrey Baratheon.
I’m going to post a short exerpt from the piece here, and you can find the rest on the Thoughts on Thrones page above!
Joffrey Baratheon, King of the Andals and the first men, first of his name, protector of the seven realms, blah blah blah. Spoiler alert – if you have not read through the end of the written Song of Ice and Fire, turn back now; as this post will contain spoilers of these books, and will spoil a good amount of season four of the HBO A Game of Thrones television program.
Let’s get this out of the way right from the start: this post will contain some serious spoilers for books 3-5 and certainly for the television show season three, which hasn’t been released on dvd as of this posting. If you haven’t read to the end of book five, please turn back now and check out one of our other fantastic posts! Otherwise, let’s venture into the incredibly intriguing world of Character Profiles!
I solicited topics for Thoughts on Thrones last week, and immediately I got a really fantastic one; Sansa Stark. She is one of the mos polarizing characters on the show, with fan bases around the world split about how important she is to the kingdom and ultimately to the end game of this never-ending conflict betwen the kingdoms and their Iron Throne.
