At 9 pm Eastern on Wednesday, May 14th, Viv, P.G., Chooch and Christiana discussed \\Laws of Gods and Men,\\ episode 6 of season 4 of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Emmys were won. No need for voting. I already heard. (Cuz I have raven instant messaging, faster than light!!)
We do a weekly contest, attempting to predict certain elements in next week’s show. Number of deaths? Number of times Cersei will take a sip of wine? Anyways, if you want to take part in this week’s contest, fill out the survey here. You’ll most likely be mentioned on next week’s show.
The video version of the show can be viewed on our YouTube Channel

Great analysis, as always.
I agree that the end of the Yara/Ramsay showdown was poorly executed, but I think it communicated the right information, even if the interpretation that there was no value in Yara and her two guys fighting Ramsay and his two guys, plus attack dogs, plus imminent Bolton reinforcements, was lost.
Probably a more important thing: we were seeing the Ironborn in a relatively positive light… a rescue attempt is a nice thing, as opposed to capturing Winterfell. Yara's men were an order of magnitude better looking than the thuggish goons Theon had.
Yara, during the raid, had a lieutenant who wasn't wearing a helmet, so we could get a good long look at him. Usually, anyone who isn't anybody important is wearing a helmet if helmets are available. Is this a guy we'll see more of?
I'm not on board with PG's complaints about Roose getting to the Dreadfort episodes and episodes before Yara. At worst, Roose just had to ride a bit to the east from the Twins and take a boat up a short distance to his lands.
Yara had to sail from Pyke, down the Western coast of Westeros, avoiding ships from the West kingdom, the Reach, Dorne, the Stormlands, Stannis' ships at Dragonstone, ships from the Vale, etc. She had to sail 10 times the distance Roose might have had to travel, and avoid capture. Since the Iron Islands are in revolt, a solo Ironborn ship would be fair game.
I am so in withdrawal of GoT. This was a great analysis, and I wish we could get to see more of Yara.
Theon is someone I really liked before he betrayed Rob siding with his father. The new Theon though after he was relieved of his "Favorite Toy" make me uncomfortable to see.
