The inspiration for this blog came from Season 9 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. They had a very interesting episode titled Flowers for Charlie. I was immediately drawn to this episode because it was a play on Flowers for Algernon but yet it was much more. It was written by the Game of Thrones creators David Benoiff and D.B. Weiss.
In the episode Charlie gets a pill to make him smarter and it works. He immediately realizes he has two ears, which is extremely important and increases his vocabulary. As his brain power grows he feels no need for The Gang or The Waitress. The other side of that coin is the gang is forced to do Charlie Work and their intelligence is diminishing. Spoiler Alert! Charlie was taking a placebo and was actually not getting smarter at all.
After reading up on this episode it is revealed that David Benoiff and D.B. Weiss are friends with Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney, so you know what that could mean? Is the Gang going to Westeros? There was talk of them appearing in an episode of Game of Thrones and they were spotted in Belfast while they were filming GoT. I am very hopeful that season 7 might include Charlie and Mac.
So some possible scenarios could be Charlie work in the Red Keep . Charlie could take care of the castle’s rat problem or clean the privy. He does clean a mean toilet. He’ll sparkle it. The King of the Rats would make a delightful addition to Flea Bottom.
Another possibility is Mac joins the Kingsgaurd. He is a body-guard extraordinaire. The Mad Queen will always be safe with the cooler around to give ocular pat downs. She already has The Mountain but can The Mountain do karate? Can he do back flips? Exactly.
We don’t have to limit this crossover to just Mac and Charlie, bring the whole Gang. It would be very interesting to see how well the D.E.N.N.I.S system would go over with the Mad Queen. By the end of the episode we’d see his head on a spike for sure. He’d fit right in with the other psychopaths in Westeros.
The crown could in list the Warthog to fix all of their financial problems. As for Dee, well no one gives a shit about Dee.
This crossover needs to happen. If we don’t see Mac’s cheesy grin or Charlie’s blank stare hiding somewhere in the Seven Kingdoms next season, who wants to sign my petition?
