Red Weddings. Purple Weddings. Trial By Combat.
Game Of Thrones is consistently the most brutal show on TV — sorry, we mean on HBO — which is part of what keeps everyone coming back.
But was the final scene in Sunday night’s Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken too much??
Find out what happened and to whom (below)!
Arya (Maisie Williams) continued her assassin training in Braavos by learning to lie — even at the cost of someone’s life.
Once again, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) talked his way out of trouble when he and Ser Jorah (Iain Glen) were abducted by slavers.
Cersei (Lena Headey) found a witness that could prove Loras (Finn Jones) was into men — and tricked Margaery (Natalie Dormer) into publicly lying about it — meaning she might be going to prison too!
The Sand Snakes finally uncoiled into action against Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn) — but thankfully the fight was broken up before anyone got killed.
Unless of course their blades were poisoned the way dear old Dad did it. In that case, Bronn may not have too much longer after that little scratch…
But the real tragedy is what happened to Sansa (Sophie Turner) at Winterfell.
We mean, obviously nothing good was going to come of her being betrothed to the sadistic Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).
And unlike her first wedding night, in which Tyrion slept apart from her like a gentleman, Ramsay forces her to consummate the marriage.
Let’s all just say it: he rapes her.
The graphic scene is not shown onscreen — we’re just given the sounds and the horrified face of witness Theon (Alfie Allen) — but that’s enough.
It’s an awful turn of events, of which Rheon explains:
“He sees it like, ‘She’s my wife. I’m allowed to do whatever I want,’ which is one of the horrible realities of that era, or the era that’s being represented in this made-up world. It’s a horrible, dark thing.”
The scene — labeled by the Game Of Thrones show runners in the season’s production breakdown as “Romance Dies” — has been decried by some viewers as the show finally going too far.
Though in the books, it’s kind of worse as Theon is forced join in. But of course, in the books this isn’t Sansa but her friend Jeyne Poole who is being used as a double for Arya (the books are even more complicated than the show, believe it or not).
Poor Sansa. All she wanted when the show began was to have a nice wedding to a handsome prince.
Do YOU think this was too much for Game Of Thrones??
