Episode 90: A CLASH OF KINGS, SANSA II: “Beauty and the Beast(s)”

December 2, 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, in which the princess in the tower is sought out by two brave knights who want to spirit her away to freedom. Well, neither of them are knights. And both are completely fucking drunk.

This week, we:

-Discuss theories we hope to be WRONG about (a new concept for Jeff)

-Use Dontos' letter to show how Sansa is gradually maturing in her worldview

-Talk about the imagery of chivalry and how it changes as both character and audience age

-Compare and contrast Dontos and Sandor, Sansa's not-knights in non-shining armor

-Marvel at how differently this chapter reads when you come back knowing who pays Dontos (namely, Littlefinger)

Next week, we jump back to the Riverlands, where Arya and her companions are trying to get by without any adults. It’s going about as well as you might expect.
