So, here’s some background. After the third episode of House of the Dragon, I felt some sympathy for Otto Hightower, and as a joke I tweeted (as one does…)

New Draft: In Defense of Otto Hightower

People got so crazy about that, it was clear that I had just committed myself to writing an Otto Hightower defense.

The good folks at Watchers on the Wall did not deny me when I suggested this as a feature article, and the die was cast.

Look, I’m not going to give details on my iron-clad Otto Hightower defense, you’ll just have to check it out on the Watchers site if you’re interested.

Feel free to yell at me there in the Watchers‘ article comments, or do it here. I love getting feedback.


(Comments are always welcome. Super welcome! But if you want to talk spoilery Game of Thrones talk with me (also welcome) I’d invite you to visit my Safe Spoilers page on my backup blog. That way my non-book-reading friends won’t be shocked with foreknowledge.)

Images (with one edit) from HBO’s House of the Dragon (obviously.) 

If you liked this article, thank you! I have all of my Game of Thrones related articles on my handy-dandy Game of Thrones page should you want to read more but don’t want to navigate around my site.
