When given the choice between a direwolf and a dragon, Veep’s Timothy Simons would opt for the latter. Dany’s children are loyal, lethal, and, until this past week, they were undefeated. Of course, Ringer deputy editor Mallory Rubin, a lover of furry companions, would prefer the presence of a direwolf, despite the fact four of the six Stark hounds have died. On this week’s episode of Talk the Thrones, the two argued the merits of their preferred beasts.
