Another week, another episode of History of Westeros!
Ashaya, Aziz and Sean discuss the exciting events of S04E05 of Game of Thrones. As always, we illuminate the backstory and explain the subtleties, keeping you prepared for the next episode and beyond! The end of the episode contains our spoiler discussion, as well as our discussion of the preview.
Sean is an Unsullied TV viewer whose unspoiled perceptions are quite the contrast to HoW’s thorough Game of Thrones education, and this makes the review unique. Sean is an insightful reviewer who first joined us in our Red Wedding discussion episode, and has been our previous three Season 4 episodes: episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, episode 4 (spoiler free), and episode 4 (spoilers)

I’m a stupid little girl with stupid dreams who never learns.
The fifth is difficult. I named her after my sister, Elia.
Every scene (and there were a lot) of S04E05 is discussed, what we liked and didn’t like, noting interesting but non-spoiler comparisons to the books. As usual there is special attention paid to hidden detail and backstory.
