SANSA, BB. ;__;
Perhaps the scene that really struck me was that one, when she meets with the Margaery and Olenna, her grandmother. Sansa, the poor dear, has suffered so much and when asked about the truth of Joffrey, her first instinct is to suppress everything. She is literally frightened that if she spoke ill of the king, he will have her head, or worse. She has learned to play the part of someone who keeps her mouth shut if she is to survive, and here she is being asked upfront about the truth of the person who has made her life, and the lives of the rest of her family, absolutely horrible. You could tell she was shaken, debating on whether she should or shouldn't, whether this is something she should be telling them -- for both her sake and the sake of Margaery. Just, my goodness. My heart broke for her here. The poor thing has been through and endured so much, that to just speak out like that to those who will listen to her and not have any kind of repercussions of her words against the king must have been such a relief, and a kind of release.
Plus, you see how kind and gentle Margaery is towards her. The little looks of encouragement, she knows that this young girl has suffered and wants to reassure her that it is alright. It was just so beautiful and perfect and just, gah!
CAN WE JUST CHANGE EVENTS WHERE THEY SAVE SANSA AND ALL OF THEM, SHAE INCLUDED, CAN JUST RUN AWAY TOGETHER SO SANSA CAN LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER SAFE AND SOUND WITH HER BROTHERS AND SISTER AND MOTHER?? WHY CAN'T WE HAVE NICE THINGS LIKE THIS? :( :( :(
THIS IS A SANSA STARK APPRECIATION JOURNAL. SORRY NOT SORRY.
The Tyrells. I adore them, mostly because it's a matriarchal kind of dynamic, which isn't something most of these characters are used to seeing. A powerful woman in charge who needs no man beside her to get shit done. They are quite fierce and powerful in their own right. And of course I love Olenna, she is a feisty woman who has no time for men at all. I can't wait for more scenes between her and the other characters, including Tywin Lannister and with Cersei. Lord knows I want to see Cersei's reaction to this woman, and how they will interact with each other. Probably resulting with Cersei and her beloved Wine (otp, tbh).
The other scene that I loved was between Shae and Tyrion. With Shae's concern over Sansa and asking for help on how to protect her to her cuteness with Tyrion, I can't help but adore their scenes together. Despite what I know what happens later, which I am scared on how that will play out on the show, I just want to relish in their scenes for as long as I can.
Lost Girl 3.12 "Hail, Hale"
This episode was...really confusing.
There was just a lot of information crammed into it that I'm still not quite sure happened and how it fits into everything that we've been prepping for all the season.
So apparently the scientist dude Lauren went off with doesn't seem to be Bo's biological father
But honestly, what does this mean? Are we going to be heading into a full on All Fae vs. Humans next season? All of this seems to have been concocted to make it appear the way it does, again from the Morrigan to conning Lauren to setting up Bo with the dead Fae bodies.
Is her father involved in this, in some way? Could he have constructed this whole thing to get back at the Fae for stealing his daughter, and for her to prove herself to be just as powerful as he is, as evidenced from her early Dawning to the little clues we've been getting throughout the season? What about Trick, what was he planning on doing with the little parchment which obviously has something to do with Bo's bloodline? Who captured him? Also, what about Kenzi? What is gonna happen to her? What did Hale slip her? Who was that random dude and what is his connection with Tamsin and why did he need to kiss Kenzi?
Again, there was just too much going on, I can barely wrap my head around most of it.
BUT WHAT I WAS MOST HAPPY ABOUT THOUGH!
TAMSIN/BO! Specifically speaking, Tamsin just being shitfaced and joining in the bath with Bo (fully clothed, because of her being quite imbibed with liquor) and talking about how much she admired Bo for being this huge contradictory. Essentially, she was confessing her love for her. I ship it, I really do. I hope that Bo doesn't hold whatever is happening that was set in motion against her because it's obvious that Tamsin isn't in control even if she wanted to be considering the consequences of whoever she is afraid of. I'm just PRAYING that she doesn't die. I love Tam Tam. :(
ALSO! ALSO! ALSO! HALE/KENZI! :D :D :D ANOTHER DECLARATION OF LOVE! FINALLY YOU TWO. FINALLY! I mean, it's under shitty circumstances, but it makes me hopeful. Please, please, please let them all survive this so they can have a happy ending somehow.
AND BO'S MOTHER AT THE END! That is her mother, right? Like, the same actress? I can't tell because of the different hairstyle.
So overall, I'm kind of waiting for the season finale to straight up what has got me confused here.
Somewhat related news, looks like Elementary has their Irene Adler, and I am incredibly pleased about this casting choice for obvious reasons. :D BOW DOWN TO YOUR QUEEN. ♥
