Hello and welcome back to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!


Today, Emmett and Jeff tackle Jeff's favorite AGOT chapter: AGOT, Catelyn V in which Lady Catelyn and her faithful retainer Ser Rodrik have a fateful chance encounter at the crossroads.


This week, we:


- Answer a question whether any of the gods are real in ASOIAF.


- Talk about Catelyn's family, her home and the fractured politics of the Riverlands


- The Inn at the Crossroads: not just a crossroads in space, but in time


- Feudalism and how Masha Heddle embodies it in her interactions with the incognito Catelyn and cognito Tyrion


- Our first inklings of the southron ambitions theory! (Jeff's favorite ASOIAF Theory!)


- Foreshadowing and irony in Catelyn's depictions of the Vale and Riverlands


- Bronn Foreshadowing


- And finally, the great debate of our time: was Catelyn right in taking Tyrion prisoner?


 


Next week: AGOT, Sansa II with Chloe AKA LiesAndArbor from Twitter and Tumbler!!
