The thing that makes me sad about the changes to the Jaime/Cersei scene is that I think D&D think they’re helping Cersei. Because in spite of every change that the show has made to make her more “sympathetic,” every single non-book-reading, non-fandom GOT viewer I have ever met hates her. And it’s not like the show hasn’t shown us, to an extent, how she got that way—they’ve shown how awful things were with Robert, how screwed-up her family is. They’re pandering to viewers who are never, ever going to see her as anything but a “bitch.”
So they emphasize Cersei’s victimhood because they think a victim is more sympathetic than a powerful, morally ambiguous woman; meanwhile, the same viewers that hate Cersei also hate Sansa for being “weak” and “stupid,” saying she just needs to be tough, manipulate, play the game. You know, like Cersei. Women characters can’t win.
And all the viewers that I know that hate Cersei and Sansa for those reasons? Are women. It just makes me really depressed.
Alright, I’ll go make some muffins.
