Episode 4.09 of Game of Thrones airs on HBO on June 08, 9pm EDT.

NO SPOILERS, NO BOOK TALK, AND FOR THE LOVE OF THE RED GOD NO TALK ABOUT THE EXISTENCE OF SPOILERS AND BOOKS

Bobo the Red posted:

If someone asks something we don't know about in the show, the answer is "we don't know".

Saying Sansa gets more interesting is a spoiler, because it tells me, for example, that Little finger is highly unlikely to kill her next episode. Which is probably fine, I doubt anyone really thought that. Except someone is gonna gently caress up and say something that does spoil things, and the only way to prevent that is to keep book chat out entirely. It's not that it's not interesting, it's that you can't know what may or may not come up on the show, and some people want to experience it unspoiled.

There are other threads to talk about the books in. The OP includes a list of people to PM if you want just that one spoiler. If you can't separate your viewing of the show from your reading of the books, then this might not be the thread for you.

If you're absolutely dying to know, any questions about the books can be sent by PM to

Why gin? Is that one of the things that was common in horse times? There's definitely wine, as wine appears in the scene in which Jorah Mormont saves Danyeryes Targaerean from Poisoned Wine. Wine is also present in the scene in which King Robert Baratheon drinks wine, as well as the famous "gently caress the water" scene.

Whiskey, the liquor most likely to appear in British-esque medieval high fantasy, doesn't seem present - really, no spirits do. Obviously they have beer/ale and wine but I don't think we've ever seen liquor.

well.. distilled spirits didn't really become a thing in actual real world Europe until around the 15th or 16th century I think.

And even then it was more likely to be a kind of clear aqua vitae kind of spirit, whiskey comes later even, though much earlier in Ireland than in Scotland.

Correct, most of the alcohol at the time period GoT emulates struggled to get above 5% alcohol by volume. Most of it was light enough that it would still hydrate you if you drank it.

Even so, distilled spirits didn't really become truly common until the mid-19th century when further advances in distillation technique and technology made the process easy and cheap enough for common people to acquire it easily. The fact that this happened, that strong liquor became cheaper (or as cheap, but much cheaper if you look at the alcohol percentage) and more common-place than beer, cider and wine, is kind of the reason the temperance movement arose as people changed what they drank, but did not change their drinking habits, drinking 40-60% whiskey the same way they had had drunk 3-5% beer and cider. This led to quite a lot of social ills, particularly for working class families. Southern Europe meanwhile does not ever really seem to have moved away from wine.

Lancel at least did something, even if it was two seasons ago. I want to say Tyrion or somebody mentioned him not too long ago in some throwaway line, so I've been holding out hope his weenie rear end will show up again.

Worm! Get me some wine in a golden horn, NOW! or do i have to go ragnarrok on your ass?

Why not? It was just a thing, since we saw the Anchorman 2 right after the episode.

I didn't see Anchorman 2 because it looked like it sucked, so I have no idea what that is referencing.
