Today on our show, we talk about some crispy-fried extras on the set of House of the Dragon, diagnose the problem with the MCU, and more.

This week, we take a look at some juicy shots from behind the scenes of House of the Dragon season 2, discuss a new book from author Patrick Rothfuss (who we interviewed, by the way, no biggee), and talk about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Is it over? Answers below:

Beyond that, we’re watching and reading rather a lot, including Beacon 23Blue Eye SamuraiInvincible and The Gilded Age, all of which we touch on before speed-running the news in another WiC News Lightning Round.
