I also like that they're getting a bit more into the theology of Westeros. Both with the faceless men and with the brief scene where Tyrion watches the woman preaching R’hllor theology in the street and claiming that Daenerys Targaryen is Azor Azhai. Melisandre believes Stannis is Azor Azhai. I'm not betting on Stannis at this point.

It's also interesting that the only people capable of magic are those who do NOT follow the faith of the 7.


I'm guessing that they didn't bring Rila Fukushima into Season 5 for only 1 scene. I'd like to see much more of her....

The sparrows are simply zealots.

Couple of good scenes in last night's episode. Looks like they may have killed off a couple of characters

And Jamie found a use for his prosthetic hand. It also seems like they'll be merging some of the disparate storylines soon, based on the direction several characters are going. Right now they have so many individual storylines going on that it seems they're only able to fit half of them into any one episode.

After 4 seasons of brutal, gory carnage the Huffington Post thinks people are quitting Game of Thrones because Ramsey Bolton is a rapist

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/0...n_7332964.html

Also because they found someone on Twitter who said they won't watch it anymore.

So far Bran Stark has been absent from this season, which I think has outrun his story in the Books. But I have to believe that if Sansa was married in front of a Godswood Tree that Bran will have see it.

maybe i'm behind the times, but i didn't know that having sex with your husband and at no point asking him to stop constitutes rape.

I can understand how casual fans of the TV Series are regularly shocked by what happens. but there's also a lot of fans of the books who entertain fantasies of happy endings for the characters. You'd think they would know better after plowing through thousands of pages of murder and rape. The whole point of Game of Thrones is that there are no happy endings!!!

The John Snow Dany shippers are probably the only IMO that might get their ending. but something tells me it still wouldn't be happy

Oh mooney

That was definitely, definitely a rape.

It was awful to watch and disturbing. But I don't quite get the outrage given the nature of the show and the characters...?

IMO the outrage was that she was a white, virgin, teenage princess who for some was a kind of unspoiled representation of traditional femininity

A lot of criticism keeps referring to it as "unnecessary."

Which seems like a dumb criticism of a work of fiction?

people consent and elect to do things they don't want to do all the time.

did she not choose to marry him? if so, she knows that in this fantasy universe consummation is a huge deal and will be a part of it. she signed up for it. if at any point she changed her mind, and said "stop" or "no" and he continued, then it would be rape. unless i'm missing something.

she refused to marry Ramsey when Littlefinger first told her that he'd arranged the marriage. She only stopped protesting because she saw going along as a lesser evil than fighting it.

Resigning to a short term fate you have no control over is not the same as consenting to it

so did she choose to marry ramsey or not? i thought she was going along with littlefinger's scheme. if she resigned herself to have to have sex with someone for her own long-term gain, put herself in the position for it to happen, then didn't say "stop" because it was a part of her plan, i don't see how its rape.
