House of Fire & Blood – Episode 28 “Vysectomy Targaryen”

Share This Post

This entry is part 28 of 29 in the series House of Fire & Blood

What if George R. R. Martin’s Fire and Blood was written more like HBO’s House of the Dragon? Caroline and Gretchen analyze Martin’s work from this perspective and search for hidden stories in the text.

This week Gretchen and Caroline continue their analysis of Fire & Blood with the eleventh chapter, The Long Reign Section 3. As years pass under Targaryen rule, Alysanne has EVEN MORE KIDS. Meanwhile, some (read: all) of those kids seem to have problems stemming from neglect. And yet Lucamore Strong is punished for having sixteen kids himself!! The Patriarchy is weird.
