Episode 73: A CLASH OF KINGS, PROLOGUE: "Red, Part 1"
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, Maester Cressen stares down a giant Eye of Sauron in the sky above Dragonstone before meeting with his king...and the latter will be covered next week, as part of "Red, Part 2." Don't blame us, the chapter is 10,000 pages long!!
This week, we:
-Consider why George has been stingy on Stannis-Shireen moments so far relative to the show
-Give a quick overview of A Clash of Kings as we shift from book one of ASOIAF to book two
-Set up the dynamic between the secular and sorcerous that will dominate the book
-Talk about the siege of Storm's End and how it works as a foundation for Stannis' character
-Ask the most important question of all: what's up with Patchface?
Next week: Red, Part 2, introducing His Grace Stannis Baratheon, First of His Name. At long last.
