In this special episode of the Reason Podcast, Katherine Mangu-Ward, Peter Suderman, and Robby Soave pre-game this Sunday's Game of Thrones finale and look back on the series. The Reason editors gloat (a little) about having correctly predicted Daenerys' turn—unlike presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren. We also celebrate the penultimate episode's anti-war message, and we try (and fail) to avoid the phrase "Well actually in the books…" We wrap up by speculating about why it's so hard to create a satisfying ending to a beloved TV series.
