Game of Thrones has a history of making spectacular penultimate episodes each season. But did the episode live up to the impressive quality of its predecessors? We’re not so sure.
Reprising his role as director, Neil Marshall (“Blackwater”) tackles the assault on Castle Black and the Wall as the Crows struggle to defend their homeland. J and I talk in-depth about the battle, as well as the weak characterization and some of the bigger flaws of Game of Thrones as a series.
As always, J offers their perspective as a book-reader and why he’s displeased with how “The Watchers on the Wall” played out. Meanwhile, I offer my take as someone who has no insider information what’s going to happen next. Please be aware that this episode will contain spoilers through Season 4, Episode 9. Happy listening! ~ Søren
