ASOIAF ASOS Jon VII

In the words of the band A GREAT BIG WORLD, 

 

"ANYWHERE I WOULD'VE FOLLOWED YOU

SAY SOMETHING, I'M GIVING UP ON YOU."

 

You guys, it's sad.  It's The One Where Ygritte Dies.

ASOIAF ASOS Jon VI

There's no place like home - especially when you have arrows in your leg.  Jon returns to his brothers (the ones he still can return to) and is burdened with guilt at betraying Ygritte.

ASOIAF ASOS Jon IV/V

The girls talk about Homeward Bound, and if you click your heels three times, there's no place like mutton and salt cod.  Oh, yeah, and there's a little bit of... betrayal.

ASOIAF ASOS Jon II

On this side of Jon’s newly released EP, we listen to “The Last of the Giants” and a teaser track of “Two Hearts That Beat As One.” He tries playing with a new band who are interested in doing a cover of “Wild Thing” as “Wildling,” especially because Jon really relates to that line of “you make my heart sing” amidst the dangers of playing the turncloak. But Jon wonders: at what point do I mean the words I sing? 

AND an announcement for a VERY SPECIAL GUEST next week! :O :O

 The Dornishman's wife was as fair as the sun,
and her kisses were warmer than spring.
But the Dornishman's blade was made of black steel,
and its kiss was a terrible thing.
