a few thoughts about Game of Thrones S05 E06 (“Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”) and open thread
I’m not gonna have time to blog in-depth about the new series of Game of Thrones, but I’m posting a few thoughts after each new episode. Please feel free to talk among yourselves about whatever is happening. (And of course I’ll jump into the comments as much as I’m able.)
Until I say otherwise, take it as a given that I love this show for its complex story and its fascinating characters. That’s the baseline that I’m working from.
Except this week… Umm…
The rape of a woman is horrifying because of how it makes a man looking on feel? *grrrr*
We knew that Sansa marrying Ramsey was going to be bad, but it’s not bad because it make Reek sad. That is not the takeaway from this. Jesus.
I had some stuff to say about Arya and the Faceless and why aren’t the Water Gardens better protected and Cersei being outmanipulated (maybe) by Littlefinger. But fuck it. That last scene left such a sour taste — and not in the way that I’m sure was intended — that I do not want to think about this now.
