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.
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)?
