On this week's show we discuss "Cursed."


Hey guys!

First off thank you for the awesome shout out on last weeks podcast!
You are awesome! And you guys are so smart answering my question about
that last D'hran- I didn't even think about that D'Haran from
Conversion, but such a great idea! Makes so much sense!

And about my name, haha, I think of the pronunciation of it like "rye"
as in "rye bread" lol if that helps. Also, I m not a moderator on the
Kahlan and Richard boards though I do frequent them often! I am just a
very big LotS fan!

OK on to "Cursed" no questions this week but I some things that I
wonder what take you guys would have on it:

1. Lots of fans have noticed the double meaning of the episode titles,
and personally i love the duality of them. Cursed here initially it
about King Gregor’s curse but it also about Kahlan’s belief of herself
as a  cursed  monster in her Con Dar. However, I found it interesting
that the two people also see these curses are “blessings” were Shota
and Richard.

Shota explains that it is a gift for the King/his line since it is
protecting them from Rahl (and her of course, Shota can’t get nothing
out of the deal). This is kind of mirrored when Richard tells Kahlan
that her “curse” is a blessing that is part of her.

2. CON DAR! I love how again it is Richard who brings her out of it-
also I love how Bridget holds a beat after her eyes have de-Con Dared
before she regains herself and is Kahlan again. we saw it in
Conversion and here again- I just love that she does that. Like she
literally has to wait for the adrenaline of the Con Dar to start to
subside before she can even regain who she is.

3. Loved the Zedd/Shota relationship and his take on ultimate power
and who can wield it and when they should not.  Also I think that it
kind of mirrors what he said to Richard about Kahlan choosing to wear
the Rada’han and the power is not power if it is no controlled.

4.Oh Zedd and his magical chains, we’ve heard of his “magical
protection” before hahaha!

Don't know if any of these are good for jumping off points, but I
thought I would send them in anyways!
