House of Fire & Blood – Episode 6 “Second Son Syndrome”

Share This Post

This entry is part 6 of 32 in the series House of Fire & Blood

This piece was written during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labor of the writers and actors currently on strike, the TV series being covered here wouldn’t exist.

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 second section of the fourth chapter, Sons of the Dragon. The lords of Westeros decide to mulligan those battles from the conquest with the weak King Aenys, while Maegor establishes the archetype of “second son” and Rhaena continues to be very, very gay.
