Remember all those insufferable think-pieces about how good it was that the show was diverging from the books?
HuffPo, Salon, EW, Slate and even normally book positive io9 all had pieces about “Thank God they won’t do the ‘boring’ AFFC/ADOD talking stuff and will be their own stories that will be 1,000 times better! LOL. Khalesi is BAE!”
Remember how these lunatics conveniently forgot the many things which diverged from the books that made no sense? How their selective memory made them remember only the changes they liked and not the Harrenhal sized plot holes?
A reckoning is coming. The upcoming episodes are going to show Sansa getting the Jayne Poole treatment and all of these same people are going to be screaming, at the top of their lungs “PROBLEMAAATIC!”
And on that day, I will not want to say “I told you so.”
I will want to scream it through cupped hands.
