Content warning: this post contains mentions of sexual violence and rape. Do you remember that Bryan Adams song from the 90s? (Everything I Do) I Do It for You? That song could easily describe Jaime Lannister’s feeling for his twin sister Cersei. Though he comes off as confident and cocky at the beginning of the show, every major action of his can be traced back to his love for Cersei. Shove a 10-year-old boy out a window? Done to hide Cersei’s secret. Beat his own cousin to death in order to escape from the Stark’s camp? Done so he can get back to Cersei. RefuseRead More →

game of thrones sansa stark

It’s easy to argue that Sansa Stark transformed more than any other character in Game of Thrones. She’s gone from a naive brat to a wise leader. Some of this is simply because of all the horrible things that have happened to her, but it’s also because she had the two best teachers that Westeros could offer — Cersei Lannister and Petyr Baelish (aka Littlefinger). It would be easy for someone to spend time around these two characters and not learn a thing. So, what makes Sansa a good student? She’s a good listener. Aspiring Princess When the show begins Sansa wants nothing more thanRead More →

game of thrones arya stark melisandre

Many of the exciting reunions we can expect in the final season of Game of Thrones are from characters who have a lot of history between them. But there are two characters who interacted for less than a minute, and their reunion has the potential to be one of the most interesting. Those two characters are Arya and Melisandre. The Meeting Arya and Melisandre meet when the latter comes to take Gendry away to use his blood to help Stannis. By that time Arya has significant feelings for Gendry, even though they may be completely plutonic. Once she learns Melisandre plans to take him away,Read More →
