    Killing the Stark parents in early in the series is very Disneyesque.

    Exactly. Plus, I don't think judging the sexual politics, no matter how crude and boorish, of a fictitious, brutal and often completely amoral society by 21st century standards of political and sexual correctness has any real merit. I am in no way minimizing the act of rape in our real world, but this show is a work of fantasy fiction. There are different rules in play -- willing suspension of disbelief and all. Plus, winter is coming.

    Were there also complaints about Drogo essentially treating his wife as a sex slave in a violent and objectifying manner when they were first together? Or about his army raping the women of the people they had conquered?

    It wasn't act of rape on the show, but the fact that it didn't make sense for his character or story arc.

    Maybe this is true for book readers but the scene was not inconsistent with either character's portrayal on the show for we who don't know Martin's written version. On the contrary, I would say that it was in character for the Jaime and Cersei the show has depicted.

    Disagree. Jamie going out of his way to help Brienne last season is just one example. Also, the fact the subject didn't even get brought up in the next week's episode tells me the same. Even if the director admitted it was supposed to be a rape they still screwed up. I guess fans will look at the Jamie character differently but he is supposed to be a character who you grow to like as the story progresses...not this. Oh well....
