Hey, HBO! I noticed you had a little bit of trouble with the Jaime/Cersei sex scene, there. Little bit of controversy got stirred up! I know you probably missed how it happened in the book (words are hard, don’t worry).
Fortunately, I’ve sketched you up this handy little flow-chart to ensure you don’t blatantly assassinate the character of any other fan-favorite underdogs who are after redemption! Print this out, throw it up in your little cubicles before you decide it’d be “edgy” to make the Starks secret pedophiles or something.
And while I’m at it, George R.R.? That pitiful “oh well Jaime’d been back for weeks so the whole dynamic was different” retcon? Fooled no one. It would’ve been more powerful if the hookup had been consensual because it would a) demonstrate Lannisterian depravity and b) humanize them both; Cersei just watched her child die, she’s grieving, she would want something comforting and familiar. I dig you’re not tryna jettison your meal ticket, but show some fucking backbone.
