Game of Thrones-season 8 episode 4 : Jessica Chastain shocked by a scene with Sansa considered sexist

It’s simple, the people in the world to have watched the episode 4 of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 8 have been very numerous. Among them, there are particular Jessica Chastain. The latter confessed to having been shocked by a scene with Sansa, who speaks of her rape, that the actress and many people found sexist at the level of the scenario.

“Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger”

Fans of Game of Thrones are millions, even billions across the planet. The season 8 of the ultimate series, is a real success from every point of view. And while many anxiously await the airing of the episode 5 this Sunday may 12, 2019 on HBO (in the USA) and simultaneously as early as 3 o’clock on OCS (in France), many internet users have lashed out against a scene of episode 4. Which ? The one between Sandor Clegane aka the Sleuth (Rory McCann) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). The sister of Arya suggests that the rape she has undergone has enabled it to become stronger subsequently.

A passage from the scenario that Jessica Chastain was totally frowned upon. On his Twitter account, the actress who toured with Sophie Turner on X-Men : Dark Phoenix has posted a GIF of her partner on the iron throne before tackling the production and writers of Game of Thrones.

“Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger,” said Jessica Chastain, very angry in a tweet, continuing then : “A woman does not need to be victimisée to become a butterfly. The little bird has always been a Phoenix. Its dominant force is only thanks to her. And it alone”. According to the star of the big screen, the character played by Sophie Turner would not have needed to have suffered a sexual assault to become a strong woman.

And obviously, she is not the only one to have found this scene sexist. Several people have confessed to have been shocked also by this sequence.

Users are mixed

On the same social network, the fans of Game of Thrones is thus indicated that in the books, Sansa Stark is strong from the beginning, and this without having been raped : “In the books, she gets more and more strength without having been several times attacked, sexually”, “Use rape and/or abuse to demonstrate the strength of a woman it is what looks like writing is the most lazy who is. In addition it doesn’t work like that”.

“This replica has been described by men” pointed out someone, a(e) other, adding : “Tell them ! This season has been a joke and very bad taste, they slaughtered all the female characters, because the writers simply don’t know how to write them, while men get everything they want as they have literally said in the last episode”.

But other aficionados of the iron throne, have tempered the game, finding that the conversation between the Bloodhound, and Sansa does not want to be sexist. “I doubt that was their intention,” said a(e) twitto, other giving their version of what Sansa wanted to say in this scene : “I became stronger, I became who I am, I survived”. “It seems to me to be a healthy way to overcome it,” said one user, a(e) other, stating that “any te sets, the good and the bad”.

The main question has not yet responded. But given that it agreed to affirm these replicas, it should not be in agreement with Jessica Chastain.
