If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the "no's" on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Brienne arrives on the Quiet Isle, where the scuttlebutt says that the Hound is at peace. But as Brienne confronts Westeros's limitations on their gender, Brienne finds themselves at anything but peace. Lo the Lynx joins us to talk about the narrow paths before Brienne, gender nonconformity and religion, and continuous acts of claiming one's identity.

Whispers, Crabbs, and fools... for a moment, the water transforms into whispers. The songs are alive as is the magic in the sword. But Brienne's innocence dies: "I'm sorry I didn't trust you. I don't know how to do that anymore."

Brienne returns to Maidenpool and has a few reunions with folks from the late King Renly's camp. Like many reunions, her meetings with Hyle Hunt and Randyll Tarly are unpleasant. But it's not cause for getting crabby: That happens later with the entrance of Nimble Dick Crabb.

Brienne continues her adventure, learning a history lesson about Duskendale and its extinct houses. She gets her shield repainted to a very familiar image: a shooting star at sunset above an elm tree. After, she adopts a kid.

Saddle your horses: We're going on a new journey across Westeros in search of a maid that is definitely-not-Sansa-Stark-but-sounds-exactly-like-her with the truest not-a-knight of them all—Brienne of Tarth. Often mistaken for a POV where nothing happens, Shiloh Carroll, author of Medievalism in A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones, joins us to set the record straight with insights about chivalric romance literature and the knight errant character.
