Episode 11: A GAME OF THRONES, JON II: “Catelyn Might Have Done Something Wrong Right There”

April 9, 2018

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!

Today, Emmett and Jeff are pleased to present you with "Catelyn Might Have Done Something Wrong Right There: An Analysis of AGOT, Jon II": a three-act chapter which has Jon leaving Winterfell forever (but probably not)

This week, we talk:

- Answers to some of your burning questions

- Jon's illusions being dashed in his farewells to Winterfell

- Jon's outsider role as a defining force in the entirety of his arc

- The excellent three-act structure of the chapter

- Subtle warging hints!

- "Stick 'em with the pointy end" and its importance for Arya

- Our Independence Day/ASOIAF mashup

- And finally and not at all controversially, we tackle the question of "Is Catelyn Stark evil or a bitch or abusive to Jon Snow?" 

This is a meaty episode.

Next Week: Daenerys Targaryen gets married in barbarian splendor!
