Well, that sure was an episode of Game of Thrones.

We’re back with another bonus episode of Kotaku Splitscreen in which Jason Schreier and I talk about the latest developments on the hit HBO series Dragons vs. Crossbows. Today we discuss the fourth episode of season seven, “The Spoils of War.”

We spoil the episode in its entirety, and also occasinally talk about differences between the show and the books. However, we do not discuss any leaked show spoilers, nor do we talk about the “next time on” preview, which neither of us even watch. (For what it’s worth, that isn’t intended to spark a debate on whether previews are technically spoilers or not. We just prefer not to watch the previews and know some listeners feel similarly.)

This week: Why won’t Bran just tell his sisters something useful already? Why were the Children of the Forest such lousy artists? And is poor Dickon Tarly finally going to get some respect?

Listen here:

As always, you can find Splitscreen on Apple Podcasts and Google Play. Reach us at splitscreen@kotaku.com with any and all questions, requests, and suggestions. If you want an MP3 of the show, you can download it here.


We’ll be back later this week to talk about video games, and next Monday for the next episode of Thrones.
