‘The Prince of Winterfell’ is the eighth episode of the second season of HBO’s medieval fantasy television series Game of Thrones. It premiered on May 20, 2012.
Feminist messages continue in the opening scene. Yara Greyjoy humiliates her brother Theon in Winterfell. This pseudo-Viking is the commander of the garrison of men who, in the absence of Robb Stark due to war, took the main castle of the North. At this point in the series it’s clear that feminism is the Leitmotif of Game of Thrones. As if that weren’t enough, in Theon’s prolonged discussion with Yara the scriptwriters put the man as stupid and the woman as the smartest.
This image appears a few seconds before Cersei said some words to her brother Tyrion: ‘You, on the other hand, are as big a fool as every other man. That little worm between your legs does half of your thinking’. These words resonate with what I said in my previous post about the blunders that three horny males commit in various parts of the world.
Then we see an argument with a vengeful Cersei, as women are, but behind that ugly argument we see that the thing about the male was true, as the stupid Tyrion has fallen in love with a whore: a woman who, as we shall see in a later season, is worse than Cersei.
‘You’re beautiful’ says the poor devil Tyrion to the whore. He ignores what’s coming in the future. Cersei was right: Our weakness lies in letting what hangs between our legs do fifty percent of our thinking. After that scene and a few words from Tyrion we see that he’s truly in love. ‘I would kill for you. Do you know that?’ Tyrion said that to Shae, the whore who in Season Four will deliver the biggest blow against him during a life and death trial. All these scenes are disgusting in that they put men as idiots, although not all of us are like that.
Another absolutely stupid conduct in this episode: King Robb and Lord Roose Bolton, the head of House Bolton of the north, discuss very serious matters of state when Talisa enters Robb’s military tent. Letting this woman freely enter the king’s tent in times of war wasn’t enough. Stannis Baratheon is about to invade King’s Landing and in these moments when Robb argues with Roose, the latter immediately leaves the camp tent to let Talisa enter with the words ‘My lady’ so that she and Robb may speak in private. Naturally, Robb won’t discuss tactics or strategy with Talisa, the one with the non-white buttocks.
Hardly in the Middle Ages a king wasted his time chatting with a woman alien to his race, putting aside all military plans. Robb and Talisa talk about the biographical past of ‘non-white buttocks’, as I should call Talisa from this line on. But worst of all is that after that King Robb declares himself to her telling her, in the tent, that he no longer wants to marry the Aryan girl from House Frey. Then we see a ridiculous erotic scene between the two and even there you can see the scriptwriters’ feminism as, already naked, we see the female on top of the king.
In Qarth the black man and the warlock give a coup to the Thirteen (or rather the Eleven), the group of merchant princes within Qarth, and remain as sole governors of the city. Dany wants to stay in the city to get her dragons back but Jorah tells her it’s is dangerous, to which he adds: ‘You know I would die for you. I will never abandon you’, which is true as in the last season Jorah will die protecting the one who, in that same season, will be revealed as the worst tyrant of the entire series.
