The Halfman’s Halfplot: Tyrion’s Plot Reduction

By Giselda Aguiar

maxresdefault_ty   Drinking is plot right?

Before commenting on the plot changes made in Game of Thrones (GoT), specifically in relation to Tyrion, let’s understand what is plot. Plot is not about a character and the things happening to him/her. Plot is a chain of causes and effects from actions taken by characters. Because the action of one character might have been influenced by (an)other character(s) and might, in turn, affect others—not just the one who takes action—plot does not belong to one character. Therefore, plot arises from the relationships and actions of multiple characters, which is why eliminating character(s) affects plot, whether for good or bad depends on the changes and their results. (If getting rid of a character doesn’t affect the plot at all, he/she is unnecessary.) Keep in mind that an action (cause) must have one or more consequences (effects) even if those consequences were not intentional. Otherwise, why take that action? The consequence is what gives significance to the action. In other words, the consequence determines the level of importance the action that led to it had.[*]

In light of some … blessedly peculiar plot turns. I thought I would think over some of what is happening on the show and start up a discussion.

What is an idiot plot? Basically it’s a plot that would not happen or would be resolved quickly and easily if people acted with any common sense or basic intelligence. You can see here for TvTropes full definition.

“The book and the show are different, deal with it. Rape was common in this type of society, deal with it. Ramsay had to rape her, deal with it. Gore and sex are a hallmark of Game of Thrones, deal with it. Don’t be so defensive of your favorite character, deal with it. You’re overacting, deal with it.”

You’re still wrong

It’s been a few days since I posted my episode recap in which I loudly, and proudly, proclaim how I and LORD ANGRY were right and every single mainstream news outlet was wrong.

ToldYouSo

Since then, they’ve all turned a corner on the television program Game of Thrones. The Mary Sue  is completely done.

Gawker Media has Lost. TheirMinds.

The very excellent ASOIAF University will no longer take show-only submissions due to “that Sansa scene.”

Most importantly, hordes of fans are turning on the show for good. Some may stop watching while many, I suspect, will only continue hate-watching.

There is a shroud hanging over the television program Game of Thrones. It’s an elephant in the room the show won’t address, but we all know it’s there. Last season, on one of the most popular cable shows ever made, the audience watched a man rape a woman. And it was never brought up again.

Rape happens on TV, and it doesn’t always make for bad or insensitive television. One of the best episode of The Sopranos dealt with it bluntly and deftly. The most popular Law & Order spin-off deals exclusively with sexual assault. On TV, sexual assault is handled well and, more often, handled poorly. But rarely is it shown, not acknowledged and never brought up again. What is odd is that this sexual assault occurred before all our eyes and no one thought to ask “Why?”

One of the biggest reasons why fans of the book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, have issue with the TV show Game of Thrones, is due to vast alterations of character portrayals. Alterations which drastically change the calculus for character decisions and ultimately plot outcomes. Throughout the last 4 seasons fans have seen some fairly consistent portrayals of the characters such as Bran Stark or Jon Snow. However there have been some massive problems with character portrayals such as Asha Greyjoy and Loras Tyrell. One of the biggest deviations in is the character of Cersei Lannister. Certainly this is no attack on Cersei fans, or fans of Lena Headey’s sterling performance.Simply, what fans deserve to see is HBO show a more rounded depiction of Cersei be exhibited on this season of Game of Thrones, but sadly, it is unlikely anyone will get to seethe real Cersei.
