  • @akritenbrink, are you asking if they'd be able to salvage the gold even if it was melted? One issue is it's not in a container that would keep out impurities - it would get mixed up with everything else being burnt there on the open field (dirt, a…
  • I noticed, but knew they would correct it before the Tuesday podcast because they watch the show 1 or 2 more times and look at other materials. I cut people slack on instant casts, especially bc you can safely assume 100 other people are going to te…
  • The preview for next week shows more talk about the gold - Sherlock's brother says Cersei will have the bank's support when they get their money. I suspect the gold they have taken from the Tyrells will not make it back to King's Landing, thanks to …
  • Will Jorah be the key to taking down Euron?
  • I looked at a map of Westeros and Dragonstone is an island in the same bay that King's Landing sits on. Seeing how close the two places are made it seem less suspect that the two fleets met. That doesn't mean Varys is all the way team Dany, but the …
  • I don't feel like the number of links in his chain would be the determinative factor for whether Dany let him take on the role, but good point. I'm not wedded to the theory, just brainstorming.
  • I'll be disappointed with such a long wait if it's delayed until 2019. Luckily it comes on early in my time zone, but for people on the east coast, the 2-hour length might mean they don't watch it on Sunday nights (especially people who have tiny hu…
  • Since Bronne is not a part of the royal family, how would that marriage broker peace between the two countries? Wouldn't it actually be an insult? After listening to the podcast I like the idea that Jorah and Sam will have to flee after this unappr…
  • I didn't realize this thread would garner so many responses. The title is unabashed clickbait though. You had to have at least hoped it would. I'm not touching the LOST portion of this with a 10-foot pole but welcome to the other side of The Leftov…
  • I feel like this is turning into a story problem. I feel like people need to move on. They have one season to wrap things up, they have no source material - just a loose outline, and they have an author who likes to throw in every detail imaginable,…
  • I fear that Sam is going to accidentally transmit greyscale to Gilly and/or baby Sam. Maybe she gets it from washing his clothes or trying to clean his tools or something. Jorah doesn't seem important to the story anymore, so this greyscale treatmen…
  • If it does happen that way next episode, I don't think the import is whether we care about the Sand Snakes, but how Cersei's actions will affect how Jamie and others view her. Will she do it in a way that pushes more people away from her and highlig…
  • Well, dang, @PS. Some of that was really cruel and unnecessary. How judgmental to frame starting your own business as "flaming out" of a real job. I'm not just defending Jim & A. Ron - it wouldn't be cool if you came at any community member like…
  • Re Laurie: I would've been happier if, instead of diving in the water, her episode ended with her looking at the grumpy boat pilot and saying, in melonchology fashion, "We have to go back."
  • I'd prefer the 2% world. It would drastically reduce pollution, climate change would be solved instantly, endangered species would rebound, and you could basically squat in an extremely fancy house of your choice.
  • @toncica, in the link Michael shared above, this is one of the alternate endings: 4. “Nora comes through and there is an elderly couple. [They tell her] ‘Here is the deal, you can’t tell anyone that you came from a place where only 2% of the world …
  • It was a better finale than I could've ever made. I don't think Nora was lying because I don't see any textual evidence that points to that. I was surprised to get a partial answer on the departure - basically there are two parallel universes, or…
  • @TxSandMan, it was also after 4 when I finished binging it, and I had no idea it had gotten that late.
  • Voted - Like gift without the 't'.
  • @ghm3, give it another hour or two of listening.
  • @CretanBull, Good theories and points. If Tyler, for example, had found it, he would not be able to help but spend it in ways visible to everybody in town. I do wonder if it's possible that "in the freezer" meant some secret compartment in there, li…
  • @GBralta, that's a very good possibility. Even with gold out of the picture though, he was still taking care of all his expenses (upkeep on large property, bills) plus taking on expensive projects like feeding 13 dogs. The ledger from the first epi…
  • @MrX, I think John B. is actually as smart as Eugene pretends to be, and I'd definitely want him on my team during the ZA.
  • @April_May_June, I feel the same about the maze, and I felt some distress about his tombstone. That was the biggest strike against the cousins for me - at least mark the man's grave. It would be cool to fundraise to get him a tombstone that's actual…
  • @April_May_June, As far as the gold in the freezer, the clerk and the police are the only ones who had an opportunity, but Tyler could've found something elsewhere. That could be what Tyler told Brian off the record but that could've also been about…
  • @Doctor_Nick, you only liked the first 3? Why'd it go downhill for you? I really liked meeting all the friends on the list as well as the one gent from the call line. I also thought the search for gold and uncovering JBM's horology feats were a go…
  • [Spoiler alert] @April_May_June, Do you think someone stole the gold, or do you think there was no gold?
  • @Dee, it's a true story. The narration is very literary.
  • Cool feature - thanks for letting us vote. It's awards season so it's a fun thing to do. 'Best Commissioned Cast' was the hardest one, tbh. I wanted to pick so many! Because of the commissions I wind up watching some good stuff I'd never heard of an…
