I just watched an entire episode of Game of Thrones and not one single character got sexually assaulted.

Ed Note: I haven’t gotten any comments or, really, any hits since posting this but I thought I should clarify that I don’t find this funny (as I typically write humor, I can see how someone would assume that) but rather surprising in a good way. The producers have been leaning on sexual assault for too many characterizations of late, and while I do think it’s an effective if disturbing way of showing that women in the society portrayed are basically property I’m glad they chose not to depict sexual assault in this episode because it’s getting to be gratuitous rather than illustrative.
