i think what enrages me the most about the scene that shall not be named is the fact that in the books, jaime knew that aerys was raping his wife. seventeen-year-old jaime, talking to jon darry, wanted to step in and prevent the batshit crazy king of westeros from raping his wife. aka the first time jaime thought about defying aerys openly until the day he murdered him and broke his vow to save the entire city of king’s landing from being burned to ashes. remembers hearing that rhaella looked like some great beast had savaged her.
so for him to do that to cersei now would essentially equate jaime to aerys. the one act he is truly proud of and the one act that demonized him in the eyes of westeros (even though they all knew aerys had to die by the end) was to kill the mad king, the mad king who did that to his wife, the mad king who was torturing the starks to death and thus causing robert’s rebellion and the downfall of the entire dynasty and the act for which jaime has been reviled but which he has never told anyone but brienne the truth of.
this is the jaime who saved brienne from being raped at considerable risk to himself. jaime who is NOT a !good guy when that happened and was only a few days removed from trying to kill her himself. the jaime who always adored cersei and followed her lead and wanted to protect her and keep her safe and who knew robert raped her and couldn’t protect her from that because robert was the king and he promised him he wouldn’t make kingslaying a habit. he killed aerys (a rapist) and got robert (a rapist/whoremonger) instead and he hated them both and has never slept with anyone but cersei because she’s his whole world
tell me again how he would have just raped her while she’s crying on the floor of the sept because hurr durr we no do complex emotions and the inevitable and tragic decay of this incredibly complicated and passionate relationship between two people who loved each other so much that they would have burned the entire world down because of it. nah let’s just throw in some more grossly exploitative shock-value violence against women and punish cersei for daring to mess with audience favorite!tyrion because jaime hasn’t gotten laid yet.
jaime. baby. cersei. baby. you two deserved so much better.
