These chapters include one of the very first from Tyrion's perspective, and in it we see someone who is a little less aggressively clever than the show portrayed him, and who is instead slightly more thoughtful an perceptive. It's been lovely to get back to this version of Tyrion, and I didn't realize how coarse the show had made him in some ways until I reread.
In other events, we've got Jon having a terrible encounter with Catelyn before saying goodbye to Bran, and then gifting Arya her tiny sword called Needle. Then Daenerys marries her Dothraki horselord, and her wedding night is just so different in the book! RoShawn and I discuss those differences, and I retract some previous defenses I made.
Thanks so much for listening, and we will see you soon with a new episode!
