Episode 35: A GAME OF THRONES, EDDARD IX: “Tears in the Rain”

October 15, 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 unpack AGOT, Eddard IX in which Ned’s melancholy musings on Robert and Lyanna while riding back from visiting a brothel are rudely interrupted by an attack by Jaime Lannister, which leaves Ned wounded and several of his men killed.

This week, we:

- Talk about the brutal melancholy of the chapter and how GRRM tides the emotions and past experiences in and out.

- Class structure as demonstrated by where Ned, Littlefinger and his men are in Chataya's brothel

- Jaime, Ned and Littlefinger emoting through their confrontation on the streets of King's Landing

- Why Janos Slynt getting killed is satisfying

- Who tipped Jaime off about where to find Ned in King's Landing? (It's Littlefinger)

 

Next week: AGOT, Daenerys IV!
