SPOILERS AHEAD!Things That Were Great About This Episode1) Pod + Tyrion May the Gods bless you, Pod, you good man! Your exchange with Tyrion was evocative and wonderful. ~~~**Friendship!**~~~2) AryaSpecifically Arya calling the Hound shitty, and her self-satisfied look after she had smooth-talked them into some shelter and food by pulling out her Tully card. Her horrified reaction to The Hound’s behaviour was paralleled by Sansa’s horrified reaction to Littlefinger just straightup killing the drunken fool after he had gone to all the trouble of saving her. Both Littlefinger and the Hound basically had to remind the young women, ‘THIS IS HOW IT GOES, OR YOU DIE.”STARKS, YOU’RE STILL TOO NOBLE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!ARYA AND SANSA, YOU REALLY ARE YOUR FATHER’S DAUGHTERS!3) The guy who said, “I don’t think I can kill a hundred Wildlings”. A +4) “I’m gonna eat your parents” Wildling guy: You’re scary, well done!5) Davos and Shireen’s dynamic: PRETTY DARN CUTE. 6) Oberyn Martell being Your Perfect Boyfriend Continuing to Say Awesome Things7) There was some equality in the nudity this episode; instead of just an onslaught of naked ladies, we got to see some peen! And a guy getting his cute ass smacked! Awwww yeeeaaahh. I’m feelin’ it!8) Tywin already grooming poor, poor, kind-hearted, level-headed Tommen nooooooooThing About This Episode I’d Really Rather Not Talk About But I Have To Because It Happened:Jaime. No. No.No.No. I was already feeling sore on Cersei’s behalf; having to listen to her father trash-talk her dead son, right infront of her, infront of her dead son’s body, infront of her other living son. Cersei is feeling crushingly fragile emotionally, and probably very much an island. Tywin being so immediately BACK TO BUSINESS, GOTTA TRAIN THE NEW ONE AND MAKE SURE HE  HAS NO TENDERNESS IN HIM SO HE CAN RULE RIGHT! was just so much salt in the very fresh wound. Look, Cersei is not a good woman. She’s an asshole. She is capable of very much cruelty  and pettiness. If Sansa and Arya are truly their father’s daughters, then Joffrey was very much his mother’s son. We have witnessed Cersei enable her son in his tyranny. Most spoiled kid’s have temper tantrums, but Joffrey’s would have a death toll. Cersei was vindictive with Sansa. Cersei was prickly with Brienne. Cersei is all jealous and gross about Margarey. Cersei openly mocks and demeans Tyrion. Cersei likes to fuck with people’s lives and happiness.  Cersei is not a nice lady. But she is still a grieving mother. Joffrey was a monster, Joffrey was rotten at his core, but Joffrey was her son. Think about that for a sec. Think about the fact that here is a woman who has just lost her child, her first born. Essentially the only thing that has ever inspired empathy or selflessness in her, and he’s gone. He was murdered. Cersei is understandably vulnerable, and what Jaime did was indefensible.I don’t care that she was not thoughtful or considerate of you, Jaime. I don’t care that she’s hateful. She is!I don’t care that she doesn’t wanna fuck you anymore because you lost your hand and you came back “too late” or whatever. I don’t care that she’s a bitch. She does not deserve to get raped because she’s a bitch. Let’s all repeat this, shall we? CERSEI LANNISTER DOES NOT DESERVE TO GET RAPED BECAUSE SHE IS A BITCH. NOBODY WILL EVER ‘DESERVE’ TO BE RAPED. I fully support the scene as it was originally written by George R R Martin, in which it was consensual. Sure, they are still related and having sex next to the body of their dead son. But Cersei says very great things like YES, and QUICKLY, and DO ME. Sex that is mutually enthusiastic and hungry and eager and respectful and MUTUAL is the best sex there is, and ought to be the only sex there is. Why change this scene into a rape scene?The director of the episode further complicates matters by saying, “the sex “becomes consensual by the end because anything for them ultimately results in a turn-on, especially a power struggle.” WHAAAAAAAATTTT?ALEX GRAVES, SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UPPPPP. You are very dangerously perpetuating the myth that sometimes when a woman says NO she means YES, and also that sometimes if a woman stops struggling at some point during her attack it’s because she’s become TOTALLY COOL WITH WHAT’S HAPPENING, and also if she responds physically it’s because she is also TOTALLY RESPONDING EMOTIONALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY.SO STTTTOOPPPPP. "It became consensual in the end, because she GAVE UP", basically. And no. No. Fuck no to that. Is it possible for couples to want to play with SEXY POWER DYNAMICS, be submissive and dominant? Sure thang. Can power play in a sexual relationship be rad and playful and satisfying? Absolutely. BUT THIS WAS NOT AN EXAMPLE OF THAT. THIS WAS A WOMAN BEING RAPED ON THE FLOOR NEXT TO HER DEAD KID BY MAYBE THE ONLY MANY SHE EVER REALLY LOVED.AFTER SHE HAD SAID NO AND STOP A WHOLE BUNCH OF TIMES. And let us remind ourselves, as I was reminded online earlier, that the first sex scene between Dany and Khal Drogo was also consensual in the book series and was turned into a rape scene in the show.In the book, Dany is all I AM SO WET, PUT YOUR FINGERS INTO ME, YES. This is fantastic, why ever alter this?Oh show, SHOW! Television show called Game of Thrones, what am I supposed to do with you? I love you and I can talk about you for hours, but sex and even rough sex are not interchangeable with sexual violence and I certainly don’t care to see unnecessary sexual violence in my shows that was not in the source material and also is not an integral part of moving the plot ahead. I think I’m gonna drown my sorrows in some more MS paints of my darling Pod.
