Boo

This article does a good job of pointing out how the writers of HBO’s Game of Thrones have made their first serious mistake, regarding Jaime’s raping of Cersei (didn’t happen that way in the book):

Much has been made, and will continue to be made, about George R.R. Martin’s Westeros, a violent, dark, dangerous world, especially for women. And it’s true, Martin’s A Storm Of Swords has that same sex scene, complete with the empty sept and dead boy-king. Except for one crucial difference. Cersei wantsto have sex.”

Yes, Westeros is grimdark unhappy nofun, especially for women, but this change from the novels was absolutely unnecessary.  You’ve already got a consensual, incestuous coupling right next to the dead body of their son.

Why do you need to make that even darker?

In better news, Maisie Williams as Arya continues to steal the show every week so far.
