Hello and welcome back to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!
In this episode, Sansa joins the singers in the sept (yay) and has to talk to multiple Lannisters (boo).
This week, we:
- Cheer ourselves hoarse at arriving at the Battle of the Blackwater
- Watch Sansa dance her way through conversations with Tyrion and Joffrey
- Praise the beautiful imagery and prose in the sept
- Talk about Sansa's empathy, where she sets its limits, and what it can and cannot accomplish in war
- Welcome (reluctantly) Cersei, who is already drunk
Next week: we flip over to the Baratheon side of the Battle of Blackwater with ACOK, Davos III (Part 1)!
