It was a jam-packed episode of Game of Thrones this week, and there’s a lot to talk about. Let’s get into it, with another bonus episode of Kotaku Splitscreen.

As always, you can find Splitscreen on Apple Podcasts and Google Play. Reach us at 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.
