Game of Thrones: The Purple Wedding
i’m actually amazed i haven’t heard more people talking about the moment sansa assists tyrion in this ep. sansa choosing to assist tyrion is a Huge Deal considering the situation - joffrey is publically humiliating him, making a big, ugly display of his power. and simply by handing tyrion the cup sansa is openly displaying her hostility towards joffrey, and her giving voice to everyone’s disapproval. not to mention, it’s a perfect example of ‘courtesy is a lady’s armour’ - that kindness, acting doubly as an insult, as a statement. she chooses to side with the person joffrey is humiliating. she takes away some of his power just by being kind.
and can we talk about this moment?
this is the person who tormented her for months. the person who could easily punish her over and over for any small transgression against him.
and she looks him in the eye, bends down and picks up that cup, and makes no mistake in showing him she knows exactly what she’s doing and she doesn’t approve of his actions.
