So everyone is crying “RAPE!” and in the begining I was like “Well, that’s weird choice they made.” But I mean … to quote the great Noir writer Raymond Chandler. “If you like my books they’re there for you on your shelf, no one can take that from you. So if you don’t like the movies, than it’ll only make you love my books even more.”
But as I have this in front of me and I’ve watched the scene several times now. Mostly because I dig Tommen, because let’s be honest … the kid is the shit. I’ve watched the scene over three times now.
What I see in front of me at this very moment is a conflict of what Cersei is saying and what she is doing. Now Cersei has always been verbally damning of whatever they do incestously. Never once has she started out with a “Yes, Jaime … I’m yours.” it’s always started out as no.
Now in the Scene Cersei is constantly damning what is going on. She is saying no, and she’s repeating “It’s not right!” so in Audio it sounds like Rape.
If I were to turn off the audio, like such … It doesn’t look like a rape scene. Trust me, you’ll know a rape scene when it’s a rape scene. You don’t have to hear protests or screams to know a woman is getting raped.
The truth of the matter is that Cersei fights him at first … and now she’s kissing back and she’s helping him with his pants. Now, she’s raking his face but judging from their relationship in previous seasons, we know that Cersei is a violent and passionate lover … now they’re making out. She even bites his ear.
All in all it defiantly a deviation verbally from the books, but physically it’s right on cue from what we’re expecting. It’s conflicted and violent sex from grieving parents.
Now I think the trouble is other than the girls on this site being Rape crazy most of the time. The other is the idealization of the Jaime and Cersei relationship. In Jaime’s head it’s flowers and rainbows. In reality Jaime and Cersei are violent and passionate in their love making and are very spiteful toward eachother when spurned.
Simply put it’s not rape, it’s two fucked up people doing fucked up things.
Fuck. You. Fuck you so hard.
