Is it necrophilia when all of the participants are dead?
“I like Ros.”
I don’t like every scene with her in it, but I do like the new character. In fact, I happen to like Ros a LOT more than Show!Shae. I can’t stand what little we’ve seen of Show!Shae. I actually was kind of hoping Ros would follow Tyrion and take on the role of Shae, becoming the new Hand of the King’s lover/whore/what-have-you. It would certainly have legitimized the attention given to her character in the early half of the season, and well, frankly, I just like her personality a lot more Show!Shae’s or even Book!Shae’s (not even taking into consideration all the junk that happens in A Storm of Swords, of course).
So, again, I like Ros. I thought the show’s use of her and other women for sexposition (or exboobsition, if you prefer) was clunky and tiresome at times. Still, I hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of her. I hope the showrunners find new and more interesting ways to use Ros to advance the plot and further develop the main characters.
But haters gonna hate.
Either that or “the protuberances on the breasts or udders in female mammals, except the monotremes, through which the milk ducts discharge.” But that might sound a bit clunky, don’t you think?
Joss and I have a great working relationship. We call each other up whenever one of us needs a second opinion on which woobie character to murder next.
