Game of Thrones S4 E5 Recap: Hodor Smash!

In a continuing trend where the “Game of Thrones” powers that be name their episodes after minor scenes that have little to do with the memorable moments; we get “First of His Name” named after the crowing of King Tommen Baratheon.

‘A Feast Of Ice & Fire’ For Your Growling Stomach

Why does it seem as though books based in fantasy or historical settings always make food sound so delicious?
