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.

Due to some personal life updates, we're experiencing a few production delays—but that just means all of you get bonus episodes! Our regularly scheduled episode for The Amber Spyglass will be delayed a few days, for release between September 26-28, but until then, please enjoy this special episode brought to you by The Dust Podcast (check out their links below!) and our patrons. 

When season/series 2 of the His Dark Materials show ended, we joined our good friends Matt (Double M) and Holly of The Dust Podcast to dissect some of our favorite musical moments in the show and what makes the music of His Dark Materials so good. This episode, though, is just a snippet, a taste of the sort of musical analysis and story analysis that you can get regularly from The Dust, so be sure to check them out and subscribe to them.

It's all downhill from here: We start on Catelyn's ASOS chapters, and they're real sad. Like very, very sad. It only gets sadder. This episode we get sad about Cat and Lysa's girlhoods and agency over women and girl's bodies.
