Our beloved Sansa Stark is now a married woman. The girl formally known as Sansa Stark will know go by the name Sansa Bolton. After the wedding ceremony her newly wed Husband wanted to "Consummate" the marriage, which led to the forced sexual acts that proceeded while Theon Greyjoy watched in agony. To most veteran Game of Thrones fans this came with some shock but nobody expected the controversy that would ensue from this truly horrific scene. The internet has been a buzz about the scene and some websites have even called for the boycott of our beloved series. Was the scene really that bad?
Anyone who has watched Game of Thrones is no stranger to vicious and disgusting acts portrayed on screen by the characters. Everyhing from be-headings to Human Castration has been shown on screen. So why the big fuss now? Sansa Stark is a fan favorite, especially amongst female viewers so it is natural to have a great disdain for the scene but its nothing new. Remember Season 1? Remember seeing Daenerys Targaryen being sexually assualted by Khal Drogo? Lets not mention Daenerys was only 14 at the time in the books. We have seen incest between brother and sister which eventually led to a young boy becoming crippled upon discovering their secret, controversy is nothing new to this series.
I am terribly sorry to inform you that if you were unable to handle the scene from last Sunday's episode then Game of Thrones is definitely no the show for you. Bruce Bolton deserves to suffer for what he did to our beloved Sansa, hopefully Theon can get some kind of revenge but that is the reality of the times. It was a very different age and luckily we improved as a society to understand that it is not right. At the end of the day however, it's all fictional set in a world full of savage activities. So, there is no need of a boycott of Game of Thrones, in fact us as fans should support the show more than ever. Ramsay Bolton will get what he deserves, just wait and see, The scene was very hard to watch yes, Sansa Stark being such an important character to the story fans never saw it coming so of course it would cause outrage but that is Game of Thrones for you. Fans of Game of Thrones will continue to watch and see Ramsay Bolton pay for his actions, until then relax everyone.
