It’s strange how the Lannister that canonically entertains the thought of raping Cersei and comes frighteningly close to raping Sansa, and who does , in fact, rape a servant girl in the last novel, who did in fact, rape his wife when he was 13-years-old after watching her get gang-raped (and I am not a guy, but how does one even go about getting excited enough to do such a thing? Even if Tywin “forced” him—how is it possible if you are a decent human being?) is portrayed as a loving, noble, mistreated fellow who movingly tells Pod what a wonderful squire he has been, and I am sure will be seen as completely in the right, however they choose to film Shae’s “betrayal.”
Then, we have the Lannister, who has been shown to love Cersei more than anything, who would not hurt her. Who tries to kill a child to protect her. Who wants to marry her and have more children and live in the open with their love. The Lannister who punishes rapists and defends Brienne from rape, he is turned into a rapist. Perhaps, Jaime was getting too much love from fans that rightfully belonged to Tyrion?
The worst part of all the stupid and horrific changes that the writers have made is that despite the rape and the orgies and the manly cocks pissing in the sand…it’s boring. I was bored. Shocking violence and sexual exploitation—I suppose you have to keep getting more extreme to keep people watching if that’s all they are tuning in for. To keep the show going, there has to be something of a story or character development, and they have ruined that. I’m frightened to see what they have planned next to keep viewers tuned in.
And don’t even get me started on Hound snot and gobbling food and beating up defenseless farmers—the same guy who refused to fight in Joffrey’s name day tournament against green knights because it wouldn’t be a challenge. The same character who “hates bullies” and who was maimed because he STOLE something as a child—now bullying and stealing from weak people and little girls. This character who seems to have a soft spot for helping little girls—Jeyne Poole, Arya, Sansa…stupid, stupid, stupid.
