Bonus episode: Game of Thrones! Gretchen and Elizabeth Discuss and Speculate Before the Show’s Finale.

Spoiler alert! In this episode, we discuss the most recent episode (Season 8, Episode 5) that aired on May 12, 2019.

Who will end up on the Iron Throne? How will Daenerys Targaryen meet her fate? And how about that coffee cup!

In this special short bonus episode, we discuss, debate, and speculate about the upcoming end of the HBO TV show that has made us happier for eight seasons: Game of Thrones.

We talk about the Four Tendencies. If you want to take the Four Tendencies quiz, to find out if you’re an Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, or Rebel, it’s here. If you want more analysis of the Game of Thrones characters and their Tendencies, you can read a post here or listen to this episode.

If you want to want to watch the scene where Sansa and Jon talk about forgiveness, it’s here.

If you want to watch the scene where the imprisoned Tyrion says farewell to Bronn, it’s near the end here.

Here’s a screenshot of the infamous to-go coffee cup from the feast—the one we discuss:
Here’s the episode of “A Little Happier” that I mention, about how much delight we take in pointing out people’s mistakes.
If you want more commentary on Game of Thrones, check out the terrific podcast Binge Mode: Game of Thrones (I also love their Harry Potter series); the video “Coldplay’s Game of Thrones: The Musical“; and Jonathan Van Ness’s video series “Gay of Thrones.”
But beware! Adult content! In some cases, extremely adult content! Although as they say on Binge Mode Game of Thrones, “If you watch Game of Thrones, and you’re okay with the TV show, you’re probably okay with this too.”
It’s hard to believe that we have just one more episode of Game of Thrones. What are your predictions?
