Is House of the Dragon cutting important characters from George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood? Is Brandon Sanderson ragging on The Wheel of Time again? Is HBO CEO Casey Bloys embarrassing himself?

Welcome to Take the Black, where we talk about all things sci-fi, fantasy, movies and TV. You may now applaud us for our originality. This week, we have some hot-button topics to discuss, starting with rumors of major characters being cut from the second season of House of the Dragon. And things only get spicier from there. Watch below!

We also get into The Wheel of Time co-author Brandon Sanderson continuing to rag on Amazon’s The Wheel of Time TV show, as well as embarrassing texts from HBO CEO Casey Bloys coming to light. Does he recover from this one?

And of course we run through the WiC News Lightning Round. #branding
