lol just watched the scene and i am taking a long hard break from this show
But… WHYYY (I haven’t seen since like mid S3 but… um… what)
it actually makes no fucking sense? and the actor playing jaime just had this messy ass interview released where he answered the “was it rape?” question with “yes and no” which has sent me spiraling into an entirely new pit of hatred.
if there’s a “yes,” then that’s the only fucking word that needs to come out of your mouth, asshole. your character has been ruined for no reason, count your losses and don’t make the entire situation worse by trying to redeem it.
Anyone who believes 300 years of oppression can be undone in a 50 year span does not have a basic comprehension of how this subjugation can become internalized and normalized, thus continuing to be a serious social issue
This can never be reblogged too many times.
to be honest it’s always kind of ticked me off that jaime was allowed this grand redemption arc when cersei never was
so on the one hand i do think it would have been a worthwhile change to complicate the easiness of his redemption a little bit
BUT NOT AT THIS COST WHAT THE HELL
