This week, we soothe your hiatus agony with a discussion of the first half of the book. Alastair is up to date, and Lani doesn’t need her poker face any more, so let’s talk adaptation, authorial intent, best performances and difficult decisions, and what come next!

There are no TV show spoilers until we break at one hour and five minutes, and then there’s one well-flagged spoiler for an event in the very next episode. You know the one. 🙂
