(PCM) There has been a huge debate among fans of the hit HBO drama “Game Of Thrones” after Sunday nights episode placed beloved character Sansa Stark in quite a horrifying situation.
**Spoilers below if you have not yet seen this past week’s episode**
Fans were divided about just how far the series has begun to stray from the books and that a scene that depicts the rape of a woman was totally unnecessary as a way to move the plot forward. The final scenes of Sunday’s night’s episode of Game Of Thrones showed newlywed Sansa Stark being escorted to the bed chambers of her new husband, the deplorable Ramsey Bolton.
She is escorted to the bridal suite by pseudo brother Theon Greyjoy/Reek, who she believes is responsible for the deaths of her younger brothers. Ramsay forces Theon to watch as he rips off Sansa’s dress and begins his sexual assault on the character. The viewer can see the tears and horror in Theon’s eyes as he witnesses someone he has always seen as a sister being attacked by Ramsay, while Sansa’s desperate screams can be heard off camera.
When speaking with Entertainment Weekly about the questionable scene, actress Sophie Turner, who portrays Sansa Stark in the series, had the following to say “Last season [director] Alex Graves decided to give me hints. He was saying, ‘You get a love interest next season.’ And I was all, ‘I actually get a love interest!’ So I get the scripts and I was so excited and I was flicking through and then I was like, ‘Aw, are you kidding me!?”
Turner went on to reveal “When I read that scene, I kinda loved it. I love the way Ramsay had Theon watching. It was all so messed up. It’s also so daunting for me to do it. I’ve been making [producer Bryan Cogman] feel so bad for writing that scene: ‘I can’t believe you’re doing this to me!’ But I secretly loved it.”
Book author George R.R. Martin has refused to comment on the scene only commenting on social media that the TV series has always taken on the butterfly effect in a sense and that “smaller changes, lead to larger changes, which then lead to huge changes”.
