Nerdette Recaps Game Of Thrones With Peter Sagal

8.2 : Y’all Want To Check Out The Crypt?

It seems that the writers of Game of Thrones really want us to know that everyone thinks the crypt is the safest place in Winterfell.

Here’s a small sampling from Sunday’s latest episode:

  • “It’s going to be safer down in the crypt, you know.” - Gendry to Arya

  • “We’ll put you in the crypt, where it’s safest.” - Jon to Bran

  • “You’ll be safer in the crypt.” - Jorah to Lyanna

  • “The crypts. They’re the safest place to be.” - Gilly to a real Shireen-lookin’ gal

Considering these folks are about to fight, you know, AN ARMY OF THE UNDEAD, perhaps taking refuge in a crypt of their enemy’s potential allies is a bad idea?

To answer just this type of pressing question, Nerdette has once again joined up with our pal Peter Sagal to recap the latest episode of Season 8 of Game of Thrones, titled “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.”

Tricia, Greta and Peter consider that thorny revelation in Jon and Dany’s relationship, new insights into the Night King’s (possibly benevolent?) motivations and Tormund Giantsbane’s ridiculous origin story.

What song would you sing the night before battle?

“Lizzo’s “Like a Girl,” because her new album “Cuz I Love You” is the only thing I listen to now."

Greta Johnsen, queen who don't need no crown

“I want to say “History Has Its Eyes On You” from Hamilton. But my get-pumped-before-a-big-game song was always “The Music and the Mirror” from the original Broadway cast recording of A Chorus Line ... so let’s stick with that.”

Tricia Bobeda, bringing an all-White-Walker adaptation of Spamalot to King's Landing in 2022

"Something extremely long. "Sorry, wights, can't come out, still have three more verses of "American Pie" to do." "

Peter Sagal, who never got any giant breast milk
