House of Fire & Blood – Episode 20 “The Real Theme is the Patriarchy We Made Along the Way”

Share This Post

This entry is part 20 of 35 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 by concluding the ninth chapter, Birth, Death, and Betrayal Under King Jaehaerys I Part 3. While Jaehaerys continues to start new projects and Alysanne enjoys her daughter Daenerys (who will DEFINITELY be queen one day), Rhaena has to cope with a daughter who runs away and a murderous husband. Being the royal family is awesome and not at all traumatic!
