Recent Game of Thrones posts on “Second Sons” & “The Rains of Castamere” A few newer readers were having difficulty finding the Game of Thrones specific information posted of late, and since our “tag” categories work as well as tagging “categories” does, I just thought I’d line the most recent ones up all in one place: Here’s the “Second Sons” podcast with Steven Attewell, in which I do an adequate job describing eyelines and their importance, which is what leads to: The first of the so-called “Game of LASER TAG: You Win or You’re It” posts, which is ironic considering that the director of “Second Sons,” Michelle MacClaren, also directed the episode of Breaking Bad featuring this childhood standby. From here continue to: The second of the so-called “Game of LASER TAG: ‘Then you’ll be fucking your own bride with a wooden cock,’” concerns the gratifying results created by the tapestry of eyelines MacClaren established early in the episode. Then we moved on to “The Rains of Castamere” podcast, in which Steven and I disagreed about when the titular song begins. Then, in my first post on the subject, I noted that the eyelines — lasers or no lasers — align in a manner that should (and does) cause suspicion among the guests, foremost among them Catelyn Stark. I almost discuss when the song begins, but then I don’t. I covered that in my final post on “The Rains of Castamere,” in which I defined all the minor elements of Aristotelian tragedy before demonstrating the order and manner in which they cause the maximum amount of pain and keening. I hope this is less confusing. I know when material’s cross-linked and back-dated and newer posts appear before older ones that I sometimes find myself befuddled. There’s no shame in that. Or if there is, take heart in knowing I share it.
