I know the thing we’re all dreading is episode nine, but I forgot how much there is to dread that comes before that as well. It’s a little easier in the books–things are told from Sansa’s perspective, and only after it’s clear she brought it on herself by being a myopic moron. But she’s far more sympathetic here in the show–and worse, things *won’t* be seen from her perspective. If anything, we’ll see them from Tyrion’s.
If anyone needs we I’ll be curled up in the fetal position in the corner wonder how I’m going to get through this.
