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.

It's all about intentions—from those of the knife's unseen tip to Asriel's new vehicle to those of our heroes (and ambiguous villains). As the knife is mended, Iorek, Will, and Lyra begin to express doubts while Mrs. Coulter gives the performance of a lifetime.

Where there's a will, there's a way—whether that's a way to get back to the North or secure the Northern succession, that is. Although, it seems the way to the Twins is quite rainy, delayed, and full of time for plotting. Lady Gwyn of Radio Westeros joins us to help break down the implications of Robb's will, Jon's parentage, and the rise and fall of Catelyn's hopes.
