Jon Snow is dead! Oh, the devastation and utter brutality that has yet to be seen in the Night’s Watch at Castle Black. On a dark, freezing night at The Wall, the hunt is on by Ser Alliser and his men who are now going after remaining Jon Snow supporters, including our Tomboy Tirade crew, Raven, Joanna, Persis and Siti.
Fleeing for their lives, they turbo-charge the iron cage lift at The Wall to its top and head to the nearest Westeros coast so they can escape the continent in a ship. As they escape, they talk about the show so far, and their reactions and predictions of the latest season’s premiere episode. You don’t want to miss this if you’re a Game of Thrones fan.
TIRED OF ALL THE GOT SEASON 6 SPOILERS? WE FEEL THE SAME WAY. READ THIS ARTICLE ON WHAT WE DON’T (WANT TO) KNOW ABOUT THIS SEASON OF THE SHOW.
IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:
1. NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
The struggle for power has been an age-old one, not just in the world of fiction but also in real life. As the saying goes, ‘Art does imitate Life’ and sometimes vice versa. While blood is shed on a violent show like Game of Thrones to gain an edge, we’re seeing that the current US Presidential Elections is also heading in a similar direction without the gore, of course. As Donald Trump and Ted Cruz of the Republican party come neck and neck in the bid to be the party’s Presidential candidate, there’s been a lot of social media egging going on between the two, especially about their spouses. We just hope that by the end of it all, Trump doesn’t decide to do a nude cover picture for Playgirl. Ewww!
- Persis talks about Trump’s early days on Twitter in 2012 of stating he wanted to run for President.
- The infamy of Trump’s wives being former playmates. Is this healthy for the USA to have a First Lady that isn’t a great example of feminism to women?
- Who has the hotter wife? Trump or Cruz and the recent debacle in the media about the Republican candidate’s wives.
In other news, we bring the topic back to all the media hype surrounding Game of Thrones so far. Siti, Raven, Persis and Joanna discuss their views about why they like the show (or not). We bring it back to the early days when life at Westeros was all nice and innocent in Season 1 through all the debauchery and skulduggery that has taken place in the show up to Season 5.
