spoilers for tonight’s game of thrones, episode two
but like, seriously tho, what the fuck @ cat’s monologue.
it’s bad enough that they’ve cut out cat even being with her father before he died and i don’t get why they have the north/stark army at whothefuckcares in notwheretheyresupposedtobe.
but having cat blame herself for all of this recent shit because she didn’t love jon snow? because she didn’t tell her husband to give jon the family name and make him one of the starks officially?
the fuck is that?
i know cat feels guilt about the state of her family, but that monologue was just out of character and appalling and just the continuation of this desire to run cat’s character into the ground on the show.
they’ve taken so much away from her character, her storyline, her importance. and for what? to enable the writers’ and a lot of fans’ fucked up, misogynistic, and just plain actually wrong interpretations of cat’s chapters and character in the books. to place the blame on anybody but all the men who contributed to the current fucked up state of westeros.
r.i.p. catelyn stark’s characterization and any chance she may have once had to be as powerful on screen as she was on paper.
