Last season I wrote the penultimate episode, and it was fun this time around to kick off the final third of the book, rather than laying out the pieces for the big finale. Never before had I felt so George R. R. Martin-y!
The Cold War rages in the back rooms and dark alleys of 1970s Prague as spies and sorcerers cross murky lines to do battle for home and country. The fate of the East and the West hangs in the balance right along the Iron Curtain—and crackling beneath the surface of it all is a vein of magic, raw and waiting to be tapped.
