Happy New Year! To celebrate the end of 2017 (a year so bad, Arya Stark had it on her list) I published another Game of Thrones feature on Watchers on the Wall.

I won’t spoil the content of that article, but I talk about how the two venerable institutions on Braavos, the Iron Bank and the House of Black and White, might have some part to play in Season Eight, specifically in regards to a lioness of House Lannister and a wolf-girl of House Stark.

As I sometimes do, I have a new Game of Thrones post on the Watchers on the Wall site. Happy Westeros Wednesday!

This post will be referencing some plot points from the most recent season of Game of Thrones. If you’re not caught up, you’re on your own should you continue to read.

Based on the climactic events at the end of Season Seven of Game of Thrones (if you’re reading this, I assume you know what happened) it seemed a good time to talk about the White Walkers, and what might be motivating them.

But you won’t find my thoughts here. I’ve posted them on the Watchers on the Wall website. Like I sometimes do.

As I sometimes do, I have a feature article on the Watchers on the Wall site, talking about Game of Thrones.

I’ll be talking about Littlefinger, the scheming mastermind, but also about Catelyn Stark, not only as the reason for him kicking off his ambitious plans, but also for the end of them. Feel free to check it out.
