It’s finally that time of year again: Game of Thrones has returned to HBO! Regina, Isabela, are joined by Nicole Tanner from Gaming with the Moms to discuss season 7 of everyone’s favorite fantasy drama. Our first episode discussed Episodes 1 & 2 of Season 7. Our second episode discussed 3,4, and 5 and we wrap up the season with episodes for just episode 6, and now the finale!
Official Game of Thrones Description
Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues.
It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts, and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’ An original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire‘ series.
Season 7 Episode 7
Season 7 of the epic series ends.
This is the first time we have recorded the DAY AFTER the episode aired. There is so much to say and so much happens. We talk about the amazing meeting of 17 named characters. Seriously. This is the first time so many known and loved characters were on screen at the same time and in many ways, it was worth the wait. (Kinda loving The Hound.) As always, we talk about every aspect of the story and some of what we think is coming. We will record another wrap-up episode, looking at the season and the series as a whole.
Until next time, winter has come to King’s Landing!
Regina & Isabela & Nicole
What was your favorite scene from the finale? Did you love watching the wall come down? The politics? The slicing of someone’s throat?
