okay but (I've learned all of this from the stuff I've read in the past day or two) in the books Jaime's appearance in that scene is the first time he's seen Cersei or vice versa since he was kidnapped several years ago (right? maybe? I don't fully get the timeline) at this point. in the show, they've reunited and already had one ugly, bitter scene where she tells him he "took too long" to get un-kidnapped

Articles linked probably go over this, but basically yeah the show brings Jamie back earlier than the books where they have an awkward slightly hateful sex scene (that is not a full on rape) then they have a general falling out realising they have both changed etc. The show has him come back and they have that general falling out first, then a rape.

The directors view that he HAD transferred the scene from the book, and it was just some erotic powerplay, when its clearly a full out rape scene is the creepy thing.

I think why book people hated it can be summed up, that like the Drogo/Dany thing, the show reinterpreted it in a way that makes you feel differently about the characters. Jamie is obviously on a good guy redemption arc thing after Bro'ing around with Brienne, and to shove a brutal rape scene into that story is.... weird. Really weird.

Usually everything the tv show adds over the books is a vast improvement (because the books suck, never read) but they do seem to insist on making everything even rapier and I am not sure they did this for any sensible reason from what I am hearing from the creative team statements, so they fucked up I guess.

I dont think the THIS IS WHEN GoT WENT TOO FAR headlines are anything but flaming annoyance into controversy, because it's already a show thats very clearly set in a world of misogyny and horror with rape and child murder everywhere, its just a seemingly baffling character choice.

The fatal flaw in my perfect PUA plan was needing to show off my handiwork.

He sure didn't need to taze that mentally ill guy. Maybe we do need to bring it all down, man.

All part of a sustained Hollywood conspiracy to misrepresent how brains work.

I commit vending machines that stock these to memory.



Is that sexist newspaper comic from the 70s, Andy Capp? Is that.. a food brand in America? For people who want the joys of food mixed with old school stand up bits about hating your wife.

I still firmly believe spaghetti grows on trees. The BBC is beyond reproach.

I liked the twist that Rust was Colton Burpo the whole time.

Hunger, on the suggestion of Gale. Which is surprising that he'd suggest it, since he also said "never forget that the IRA are evil" a couple dozen times.

I thought it was really good, hard to watch at times but obviously McQueen & co. were going for that.

Dont forget that the IRA are evil, though.

Its a space odyssey reference I believe. That hip nomenclature we all use to explain things.
