Cave of Thrones Season 6 Finale - ALL MEN MUST DIE! (Part 1)

Welcome back to "Cave of Thrones!!!" Just know that the ManCave is here to help you deal with the inevitable depression that settles in until next year when GoT returns. SPOILER ALERT: it'll require lots of alcohol.

With the finale of Season 6 now in the rear view mirror, the guys are here to help you express your feelings about all the death, destruction, and sometimes even some kickass murdering going on. In this part one of the full recap, CraigMakk shares some of his fears of working with an absolute murderous lunatic; Serious Jest introduces you to his brand new family sigil and catchphrase; and they both think that getting one pretty simple prediction correct means that they are always right. But we know better, don't we? Oh, and they'll drink a lot of alcohol as well...but of COURSE they do.

So strap in, grab yourself a beer, and get ready for the big season finale of "Cave of Thrones!" And all hail His Grace, Tommen of Houses Baratheon and Lannister, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and...wait, what happened??

Damn, that family sure is cursed.

Drinks of the Show: some kind of Puerto Rican rum (because why not?), and Dogfish Head Beer to Drink Music To, a strong-ass Belgian-style tripel that will have you enjoying the GoT theme song even more than you thought you would.
