Episode 65: A GAME OF THRONES, ARYA V: “The End of the Beginning”

June 3, 2019

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:

Next week: AGOT, Bran VII!
