In Polite Fight, we examine the cinematic storytelling of our favorite TV shows, sometimes even fighting over them—politely, of course.

We don’t usually discuss Looney Tunes and Game Of Thrones in the same breath. But a funny comment from underscorex about some of the cartoonish violence in “Home,” this week’s episode of Thrones, finds our hosts doing just that. By the time he’s done talking, John discovers to his dismay that he’s sort of justified that dumb dog-murder scene. John and Gus also debate a thread-pulling moment for Cersei Lannister, and they quarrel over the episode’s much-discussed Jon Snow scene, with Gus wondering why everyone had to leave the room for the big moment.
