Happy Monday, everyone! Welcome to our combination A Storm Of Swords wrap-up and A Feast For Crows Prologue episode! It's a pretty long episode, so buckle up!
Brendan talks about his final impressions of A Storm Of Swords and what his overall vibe is for the series so far. We also discuss an interesting comment that FTWard left on the final Tyrion chapter and Brendan and I get into an intense debate on who Tyrion is and what the nature of Tywin's actions are. While I don't agree with FTWard's thesis on this one, he makes a series of very interesting points that spark some great discussion.
Then Brendan makes some predictions as to what will be coming down the pike in A Feast For Crows, and I tell Brendan about how the book will not contain some of the POV characters that we've gotten used to seeing. So he makes some guesses as to what new POV's we're going to get, and what's going to happen with the remaining POV's that we already know and love.
And THEN we talk about the Prologue. What an interesting, detailed little story we get to start the book off! Pate is so in love with Rosy, and the way that he thinks about her in every other sentence is so cute; he's totally smitten. Of course as readers we know that these Prologues and Epilogues usually result in the death of that particular POV character, so it's tough reading about a guy who is not talented enough to achieve his dream of becoming a Maester but doesn't care anymore; all he wants is to be with Rosy, and we know that will probably never happen. And who is the Alchemist who shows up? Brendan makes a guess, what do you guys think?
I hope that you guys enjoy this episode, we will see you tomorrow!
