Hello, friends and bannermen. On Sunday's Game of Thrones, Daenerys got lucky, Tyrion got a champion, and Arya got revenge (again). How did it match up with the books? How did it differ?
This weekly chat series is for fans of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, upon which HBO's fantasy drama is based. It's meant to be a safe haven to discuss spoilers and changes from the novels and how they have played out or will play out in the TV series. Hanh Nguyen and Sadie Gennis are longtime fantasy fans of varying levels of geekiness who will sound off on all things Westerosi (and beyond!).

On Sunday's Game of Thrones, the wily political schemer killed a third person this season, but this time, he did the honors with his own bare hands...
There are a lot of truly evil people on Game of Thrones, yet the show's most hated character isn't the sadistic Joffrey or flay-happy Ramsay. It's Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), whose biggest offense seems to be that she's a teenage girl — and a girly one at that.
The polar opposite to her sister Arya, Sansa embodies everything a young Westerosi noblewoman should be. She loves lemon cakes, fairy tales and honestly believes in happily ever after (or at least she used to). But when people celebrate Game of Thrones for its depiction of empowering female characters, they typically point to Daenerys, Arya, Brienne and Cersei, all of whom actively fight against traditional ideals of womanhood and exhibit characteristics that are often associated with men. But where's the praise of Sansa's strength? No, she doesn't rely on dragons, a sword or aggression to get her way. She's polite, kind and a feminine, but none of those things make her weak.
