WAICGU #12: Ned Can’t Die
In this episode, Candice and Gail discuss Ned VIII, Catelyn VI, and Ned IX in A Game of Thrones. There’s a lot of Ned in this segment as the Jon Arryn mystery continues to unfold. Gail shares her reactions about Ned’s party getting attacked by Jaime Lannister, Ned’s fight with Robert, a long, boring journey up a mountain, fruit and vegetable baskets, and first impressions of Lysa Arryn (spoiler alert: Gail thinks Lysa is totally bananas). Gail also worries for a minute that Ned might die, then realizes Ned *can’t* die, because then there wouldn’t be a story.
