Winter is officially here on “Game of Thrones,” but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a few sunny days here and there. That, at least, is one takeaway from “It’s Always Sunny in Westeros,” a YouTube mashup of the high-fantasy drama and the comedy whose sensibilities are as black as the Night’s Watch’s uniform. Watch all the episodes, which have been helpfully compiled into one eight-minute video, below.
All of them take the form of an “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” cold open, which begin with the gang — Charlie, Dee, Mac, Dennis and Frank — coming up with a harebrained scheme and jumping to a conclusion that’s instantly contradicted by the title of the episode in question. Here, it’s the likes of Tyrion, Sansa, Jon and Cersei doing just that — yet another reminder that the best laid plans of maesters and men often go awry.
There are vague spoilers throughout, and each visual punchline (“Cersei kills everyone”) requires some familiarity with both shows, making this something of a fans-only proposition — albeit a clever one.
