Funny, on the "rape scenes," one the actors complained about was Jamie and Cersei. In the book he does not do that at all. So I think the scene from the current episode where Cersei takes Jamie was sort of a "correction" of that.
The other one is a departure from the book, but it is a very good scene--Ramsey's rape of Sansa. It turns from her and focuses on Theon Greyjoy
Reek's reaction. Very powerful--though the actress joked at one of the Comicons that it was "too bad" the camera moved since, "it was some of my best work!"
You do not see
Sansa raped. You do not see Danny raped. Even "Shame. Shame. Shame." is not seen, only heard.
But some people need to be offended.
It is odd, before reading this, I enjoyed an anime
based on a classic story of historical Japanese Original
fiction. Lots of blood here. One Japanese Ori
[Stop it!--Ed.] commentator noted the sad irony that two characters in love could not
be depicted making love; however, a woman could
be depicted being disemboweled.
Long ago, in one of his early examinations of language, George Carlin noted you could not say a word that meant "make love" on television but you could
say, "rape," "dismember," et cetera
