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, Davos sails Melisandre beneath Storm’s End, where she gives birth to a beautiful baby boy with his Dad’s face
This week, we:
- Discuss the metaphysics of Davos and Melisandre's morality and culpability in the act that's about to happen
- Get in on the parallels between Robert and Stannis/Ned and Davos
- Note that Melisandre's onion metaphor is wrong.
- Get spooky with the birth of shadows and the death of kings and castellans
- Answer the question: how the hell did Melisandre make a shadowbaby?
Next week: we return to King's Landing where Tyrion encounters some minor civil disturbance, nothing major in ACOK, Tyrion IX, Part 1!
