Episode 184 - TGE Watches Game of Thrones

July 28, 2017

It’s finally that time of year again: Game of Thrones has returned to HBO! Regina, Isabela, join Nicole Tanner from Gaming with the Moms to discuss season 7 of everyone’s favorite fantasy drama.

Official Game of Thrones Description

Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues.

It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’ An original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire‘ series.

Ok it’s pretty safe to say all three of us are differing levels of fan girl over Game of Thrones. Most dedicated among us is Nicole as she knows all the characters names. Normally, I wouldn’t note this as part of a definition of being “most dedicated” but come on. So many characters, so many odd and hard to remember names. She wins.

We talk about both the season 7 premire episode, Dragonstone, and the second episode, Stormborn, in great detail. We spoil everything. That is pretty much the expectation for the entire TGE Watches series: Spoilers are coming. Also discussed are several fan theories and a handful of articles we read before recording.

I am kinda sad we wrapped when we did because we continued talking about how much we hate Little Finger afterward and it was awesome. We will try to remember to pick up on that next episode. As I mention, we will do three episodes in this TGE Watches series. The next will be in three weeks after episode 5 airs.

Until next time, winter has come!

Regina, Isabela, and Nicole.
