The guys are trying a new format, recording the show through SpareMin. There are some technical difficulties (that we addressed in Episode 15, which sounds like a peach!), so Kev offers a brief recap at the top of the show. Mike forgot to re-watch this episode, so is relying on his memory, while Kev feel asleep twice during the episode. The episode ends strong with the black smoke monster baby, but what about the rest of the episode? Where does it fall for Kev?
The following are a list of theories that Kev is coming up with as he watches the show. Anything written in a normal black font means that the theory (as of this podcast episode) has not been proven correct or wrong. Anything written in bold green means Kev was right (and you likely knew all along) as of the podcast / Game of Thrones episode listed next to it and anything written in bold red means Kev was wrong (and you likely laughed at his foolishness all along) as of the podcast / Game of Thrones episode listed next to it.
Theory 1: Joffrey is the incestuous lovechild of Jaime and Cersei Lannister. 1.06 A Golden Crown / 1.07 You Win or You Die
Theory 2: Tyrion did not send the assassin after Bran, but his siblings (Jaime and Cersei) did.
Theory 2a: Jaime and Cersei are also responsible for Jon Arryn’s death.
Theory 3: Bran will walk again.
Theory 4: Samwell Tarly will either die or become a bad ass trained by Jon Snow.
Theory 5: Certain Doom to the Seven Kingdoms (or Robert at the very least) if assassination attempt is made on Daenerys and child.
Theory 6: Daenerys will lose the baby, but a dragon egg will hatch and she’ll have a little dragon baby. 1.10 Fire and Blood
Theory 7: Jorah is playing the long game, setting things up.
Thoery 7a: White Walkers need the extreme cold to reawaken.
