The Most Promising Promise of All Promises

Lyanna said 'Promise me, Ned,' and Ned was like, 'Awwww mannn.'

The Royal Vacation From Recording and Editing of 2017 is nearly at its conclusion. The Princes That Were Promised are well-rested and eager to dive back into their Royal Responsibilities.

As #TPTWP prepare the next series of podcast episodes, including the Game of Thrones Season 7 Retrospective, another Classic episode from the Royal Archives will help see you through the night... For the night is dark and full of terrors...

This episode was part of #TPTWP series covering Lord Eddard Stark, The Lord of Winterfell, and The Warden of The North. It covers The Promise that Ned made to his sister Lyanna as she lay dying and what that promise ultimately meant to his life. In addition, a Royal candle is held up to the details and mechanics surrounding The Promise.

R + L = J In a World Where R + L = J, Part 2

The 2nd Part to an Unnecessary Argument

R + L = J has been the really bad cover for the biggest spoiler in A Song of Ice and Fire as well as HBO's adaptation. While clues were hidden thoughtfully throughout #GRRM's saga, and #GRRM has yet to finish a book that would have prevented a television show from spoiling his greatest reveal, the television show had to take a far more subtle approach. That approach was little to no mention of any clues audibly, and some background visual clues that are very difficult to pick up.

John and SeannieWan return well over a year ago... so Back to the Past... to finish up their in-depth, detail-oriented study of The Theory that became The Assumption, that was The Truth.

Cover art is Winter Is Coming by Dame DeBrume. Check out more of her work.

R + L = J In a World Where R + L = J

The Theory Became The Assumption, The Assumption Becomes The Truth. Duh.

It is fact! R + L = J. And the fictional literature equation is as concrete as the non-fictional physics equation- E=mc2. There is no way whatsoever to refute the truth. #TPTWP discuss the pieces that fit and the pieces that don't, as well as the small details that have larger meaning than one might think. This is an episode from the archives, originally posted following the end of Season 6 of HBO's Game of Thrones, shortly after Queen Cersei blew up half the cast.

John and SeannieWan take a breather to catch up with professional work, save marriages, and reconnect with family following 7 weeks of multiple GoT viewings, prep work, recording, and what seemed like thousands of hours of editing.

Cover art is The Tower of Joy by Jesse Nkinsi. Check out more of his work.

'The Dragon and The Wolf' (7.7) - Initial Review

Late Night Musings On The Season Finale

Episode Notes

SPOILERS!!! FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke... Just off the Long Island Expressway... And beneath a bleeding star...

'The Dragon and The Wolf' goes quite a ways to make up for the issues this season. The conversations and meetings that we thought we get this season are all saved for the finale and while it is great to see, it makes #TPTWP wonder if this season was padded with unnecessary storylines and all the good stuff held back.

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.
