Episode 36: A GAME OF THRONES, DAENERYS IV: “The Holy Mountain”

October 22, 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, Daenerys IV in which Dany and the gang arrive at the “ancient, arrogant, and empty” city of Vaes Dothrak, where in a shocking turn of events, Viserys is an asshole..

This week, we:

- Talk about Dany's identity conflict between Targaryen and Dothraki

- Dany's education as a Khaleesi

- Viserys' racism and arrogance and how his role as "Cart King" seems an honor to him in very Westerosi fashion (but it isn't)

- The belt Dany whacks Viserys with and its symbolic importance

- Why Viserys' villainy is not for the best

- Dany's TWOW Dothraki arc


Next week: AGOT, Bran V!
