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, George RR Martin finally stops dicking around, pulls out our hearts, and steps on them while we watch. This is the chapter where Dad dies.
We also talk:
- An off-screen event we would have loved to see on-page
- Ned's death is a tragedy, not a genre deconstruction
- Arya's training arc continues and she grows through adversity
- Red Wedding and Ned's death parallels
- Who really killed Ned Stark?
This episode is also available as a video which is 1 hour longer! Check out the director's cut of the episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBK5edZJGRM
Next week: AGOT, Bran VII!
