  1. Steven yeun wanted Glenn to have the death he did in the comics. We knew it was all coming. But Abraham was a surprise… The only reason it was controversial is cause they bashed glenn’s head in. Which is pathetic cause the majority of shit we’ve seen on the show is a hell of a lot worse than a head smashing.

  2. I’m so tired of hearing how controversial the Ramsey raping Sansa scene was, it wasn’t even showed, it’s not even top 5 most controversial scenes in game of thrones much less ever on tv, yes what happened to her was horrible and should never happen but babies being killed, children burned alive etc.

  3. 5:00 show where people are tortured, burned alive and their brains literally explode, a scene where husband and wife have reluctant sex with each other on their wedding night is over the top? wow. and to be precise, it wasn’t even literal rape, since besides the marriage and the wedding night she voluntarily agreed to marry and have sex with him, and the fact she didn’t want to was pretty usual thing in medieval aristocratic marriages, noone ever wanted their partner, they were chosen by parents and the child simply had to comply.
    the only thing wrong in here was that ramsay told theon to stay and watch 😀

  4. I didn’t like the rape scene in GoT either TBH, it made me so uncomfortable, but I didn’t stop watching the show, I just skip passed the scene every time I rewatch the series
