I only like TV and Feminism.

Since the writers don’t give a crap about the books can Arya and Sansa meet up at the Eyrie and live happily ever after? 

So what are we supposed to do with show Jaime? I can’t like a rapist, but I also know it’s completely out of character for both show and book Jaime to do this. 

The writers are playing this off like it’s consensual (it was in the book) but in the show it clearly wasn’t…where do we go from here? We can’t re-write the show or be rape apologists.  

She touched his face. “I was lost without you, Jaime. I was afraid the Starks would send me your head. I could not have borne that.” She kissed him. A light kiss, the merest brush of her lips on his, but he could feel her tremble as he slid his arms around her. “I am not whole without you.”

There’s something seriously wrong when a tv network believes that it’s audience would rather see Jaime Lannister rape Cersei instead of enjoying consensual sex with the woman he loves. HBO’s insistence on adding extra violence towards women in the series is truly disgusting.

Jaime was angry with Cersei - he was angry he loved her, a hateful woman who since he’s made his heroic return to King’s Landed has been treated as worthless by her. He raped her when she was miserable, weak, and grieving over he death of their son. Where do we go from here?

I ship(ped) Jaime and Cersei - not gonna explain it, but I did - what happened tonight was clearly rape. I have so many thoughts on this. They writers set this up (“if not tonight then when”). What would GRRM say? What’s gonna happen now? Is this out of character for Jaime (I think so)?

I wanted to make a strong mother character. The portrayal of women in epic fantasy has been problematical for a long time. These books are largely written by men but women also read them in great, great numbers. And the women in fantasy tend to be very atypical women… They tend to be the woman warrior or the spunky princess who wouldn’t accept what her father lays down, and I have those archetypes in my books as well. However, with Catelyn there is something reset for the Eleanor of Aquitaine, the figure of the woman who accepted her role and functions with a narrow society and, nonetheless, achieves considerable influence and power and authority despite accepting the risks and limitations of this society. - GRRM on Catelyn Stark
