Transparency: I watched the leaked Game of Thrones Season 7 episode 6 and I am not sorry, at all. At this point, fuck the writers, show runners, and anyone else who is in collusion with making ‘Confederate’ a thing.
This post isn’t about that episode though. This is not a spoiler…this is a rant.
Can I just say that it doesn’t surprise me that Benioff and Weiss are really trying to ship this Jonearys…Jon + Danearys…relationship on Game of Thrones KNOWING that they’re related?? There’s so much fan fic about it and it seriously makes my skin crawl. Although it is said in the books that Dany’s (and Jon’s) family likes to keep it in the family so…uggghhh.
(If you’re new to Thrones or have been living under a rock and haven’t yet read all of the necessary conspiracies click here for the reference.) The only thing that would make these fuck faces they keep exchanging not so disgusting is if we all find out that it wasn’t Jon from Bran’s vision, or if we find out that Jon’s dad isn’t who we think he is.
And really, how fucked up would that be? And at the end of the day, we really can’t be surprised if that’s the angle though. After all, these are the nerds that are over the moon excited about writing a modern day slavery series for HBO called ‘Confederate’. They are also the same ones that are purposefully writing Jamie Lannister (a guy that is
in love with FUCKING his twin sister) as a character to somehow cheer for while Cersei is the one that’s made to look batshit. Like…yeah he is sleeping with his sister but look…she killed kids, she’s worse. NO. She’s not worse, they both equally suck!! Hello?? He pushed a kid from a fucking tower all because the kid caught him fucking his sister from behind.
And let’s not forget the time that he damn near date raped her at the coffin of his dead son/nephew so yeah…
The ability of them to continue to vilify Cersei while making Jamie into this literal Knight in Shining armor is also a lot gross. He gets to have comical lines and has moments where he is the “voice of reason” in Cersei’s schemes and cries for blood. Afterall, he’s just a soldier in love with this woman that is hard to control and he’s trying to do the right-ish thing. Right?? But let us not forget that all the while he remains complicit to Cersei’s tyranny and evil so he’s really the Mike Pence in this situation, not the Lindsey Graham. But again…these are the creators of Confederate so I am not surprised.
Something me tells me that there are a lot of members of the #LawrenceHive in the Game of Thrones writing rooms.
