So I’m really curious what the critics behind the Ros scene in “The Climb,” think of tonight’s episode “The bear and the maiden fair.”
Here’s a few points:
-This is a TV show set in an incredibly violent world. If you didn’t figure this out before season 3 you’re pretty daft. Case in point: Early season 2 when Joffrey FORCES Ros to beat her fellow companion and it’s clearly SHOWN. Where were you then?
-“Only male characters do the torturing” NO. Cersei actually orders the torture of a character, who was completely indifferent to the “game”, in a Feast for Crows, and attempts to imprison Margaery and her cousins through vile, similar methods. If the show continues with the book storyline then you’ll see it in season 5, and the torture scene is very brutal in its own right. Oh yeah spoilers. SORRY NOT SORRY.
-Theon’s torture is far from over, and YES his castration is HEAVILY implied in two distinct scenes in ADWD. Especially the Jeyne Poole post marriage scene with Ramsay and “Reek.” Stop saying, “it wasn’t in the books.”
-The show is an “adaptation.” Adaptation doesn’t mean a “word for word” copy. Take a class on narrative, trust me it makes the show easier to watch.
-You’re all going to flip your shit after episode 9 this season, and if everything goes as planned, episode 9 next season. NO ONE IS SAFE. Stop expecting them to be.
-I’m high off feels so I can’t summarize my thoughts properly right now. Don’t feel and blog at the same time.
