After doing the unthinkable in splitting a chapter to make two episodes, we follow Davos for another unthinkable moment: a baby shower. But it's not just any baby shower as watches a shadow in the shape of his king born while Davos feels himself die just a little on the inside.

On this episode, we cross a rubicon, a point of no return, open a door that can never be closed: We are splitting this chapter into two episodes to discuss Davos at Storm's End, sailing through the dangerous waters of politics. As he plays therapist to his king, Davos listens to a... s'peach about Stannis's inner turmoil.

The first of many surprises this weekend: Just before you get your ASOIAF episode, we are SO JAZZED about the Series Two official trailer and have a few more final thoughts before the series officially comes out November 16. And we were so excited that this is once more a one-hit wonder episode meaning that again, we recorded it and uh, you get the raw, unedited Girls Gone Canon experience.
Watch along with us:

Setting sail (again) with a new POV, this time it's the Onion Knight: Davos Seaworth. From the start, Davos's chapters set the tone for a story of sacrifice, faith, and the burning of old systems.

The girls are joined by friend Wendy, who - unlike Stannis - takes no prisoners in the Crofter's Village. Things look bleak for the King's (Queen's) men, but there's an inkling of hope for Asha that arrives by Chapter's End.
