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, good ol' Maester Luwin reassures Bran and Rickon that their creepy nightmares about their dad being dead are meaningless...and of course, he is proven 100% right. Since when do dreams *mean* things?!
This week, we:
-Discuss the different directions George considered going with books four and five
-Set up the struggle that will dominate Bran's storyline in the next book: the secular v. the magical, the Stark in Winterfell v. the Winged Wolf
-Dig into the layers of political and personal history down in the Winterfell crypts
-Pay tribute to the Ned Stark shaped hole inside Bran, Rickon, and his own tomb
-Ponder where the Children of the Forest went and what they did after the Andals arrived per Luwin's story...
Next week: AGOT, Sansa VI with new guest Michal Shick of Hypable, Nice Jewish Fangirls, and Vassals of Kingsgrave!
