Episode 170: A STORM OF SWORDS, JAIME III: ”Shall We Dance”

Hello and welcome to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!   In this episode, Jaime grabs a sword and gets his butt kicked by Brienne before the Bloody Mummers show up to make everything worse.   This week, we:   

- Arrive at Maidenpool to find the town sacked and the castle locked

- Wave farewell to Cleos Frey, who dies as he lived: without dignity

- Break down how Jaime's certainties falter throughout his duel with Brienne

- Trace the shifting dynamics as Jaime fails to take control of the Mummers

- Reframe the Jaime-Brienne duel as it actually is: as a sex scene

  Next week: Arya rides across the countryside with the Merry Men in pursuit of Robin Hood in ASOS, Arya IV!   Our patreon: www.patreon.com/NotACastASOIAF   Our merch store: https://notacastasoiaf.threadless.com     Our twitter: twitter.com/NotACastASOIAF   Our facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/289889118235797/   Our youtube page: www.youtube.com/channel/UCmmDfPdG…iew_as=subscriber   Emmett's twitter: twitter.com/PoorQuentyn
