House of Fire & Blood – Episode 30 “The Long Chapter”

Share This Post

This entry is part 30 of 40 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 5. For literally a whole ten pages, Jaehaerys struggles to accept the fact that one of his teenage daughters had CONSENSUAL SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!! And to make it worse, it wasn’t even with her brother!!! The horror!
