Game of Thrones S6 E2 Podcast: “What Choo Talkin’ Bout Willis?”

Woooo hoooooo! Maybe Jon Snow knows everything now. I suppose that has yet to be seen, so let’s talk about what has been seen. Heads up, serious effing spoilers, OK?

PODCAST HERE. Further super-fun commentary below.

For the first time in a long time, I didn’t feel abused at the end of this Game of Thrones episode. I felt gratified. There are several reasons why, but most importantly…

As everyone leaves the room, feeling defeated and doubtful of Melisandre’s mojo, Ghost stirs and lets out a whimper. Then, Jon Snow’s perfect brown eyes jolt open, and he gasps a life breath. In turn, I am given life. Screaming, squealing, flailing life that may or may not have woken up my neighbors.

Jon Snow is alive

Jon Snow lives.

This is huge, and the potential implications are making my nerd brain spin. First, we’ve ALL been waiting with bated breath for the return of Catelyn Stark in the form of Lady Stoneheart. But… BUT… what if they do a Snow/Stoneheart mash-up? What if Jon is the one who does all the revenging, and he’s not quite right while he’s doing it? I mean, Brienne and Sansa are on their way to The Wall, so it could follow that Jon will execute Brienne, Stoneheart style. Given the showrunners penchant for character combinations, this could work quite well, narratively speaking.

Whatever happens, as Beric Dondarrion said, “Every time I come back… I’m a bit less. Pieces of you get chipped away.” That means our precious, perfect bastard Stark is NOT going to be the same. If you have theories, I’d love to hear them in the comments.

As for the rest of the episode, that was good, too. Bran has a hell of a flashback, and we learn that Hodor’s name is Willis.

WILLIS, YA’LL!

It really does give new meaning to, “What choo talkin’ bout, Willis?” Right?

Then there was Tyrion and the dragons, Cersei and Tommen, Jamie and the Faith, Greyjoys and really grey things happening, Sansa told Brienne her story with her eyes, goddamn Ramsay and his dogs, and a girl has no name. I could go on, but don’t you want to hear my perfect voice talking about it on this podcast?

You do. It is known.

It is known
