All right, now I am just gonna dive right in and explore the most controversial aspect of S4E3, namely the scene where Jaime forces himself on his twin sister Cersei. That bit provoked an outrage on the Internet, mainly because it wasn’t in the book. Yep, in A Storm of Swords the said sex scene is more ambiguous, because she says no in the beginning, but eventually agrees. (That “gray area” reminded me of the scene in True Detective where Rust fucks Maggie. He basically slut-shames her after the deed–does it mean that he is being sexist, or is his behavior a sign of extreme distress?) Adam Graves, who directed the GoT episode, has said that “…it becomes consensual by the end, because anything for [Cersei and Jaime] ultimately results in a turn-on, especially a power struggle.” That actually doesn’t make any sense in terms of character development, as he implies that they always were like that, and every interaction they have inevitably results in them getting the hornies for each other. I believe there are other issues at play as well.
Happy Season Four of Game of Thrones! One of my wild predictions already came true—Oberyn did get some sexy time, including with a dude. Oberyn is a darn fine piece of ass! But my post is going to be not about him or even GoT, but about nerdy book-related stuff.
While reading A Song of Ice and Fire, I noticed that the POVs were not created equal. Of course, they all differ in importance—we and GRRM care more about Tyrion than we do about all those “Oreo” dudes from the fourth book—but there’s more to it. In the case of each POV, GRRM emphasizes a different function in relation to the story. According to that emphasis, I’ve grouped the POVs into three categories.
Of course, what follows are just guesses. But you can’t deny that they are logical! The order of these predictions is from “highly likely” to “probably never gonna happen, but I am still gonna say it, because why the fuck not.”
My name is J. This blog is my outlet for batshit Game of Thrones/ A Song of Ice and Fire speculations. Of course, all of my posts are totally spoilerific. I will also post reviews of GoT merch such as t-shirts, toys, eyeshadows, etc.
I do not really care about Jon Snow and Dany Targaryen, so I will not post much about them. I am very partial to Jaime Lannister, Samwell, Sansa, Oberyn Martell, The Hound, Melisandre, Brienne, and Asha Greyjoy.
I also have an Instagram page dedicated to the world travels of the Jaime vinyl figure.
