Le problème avec les scripts de Moffat c’est que je perçois sa personnalité de merde derrière chaque réplique et chaque rebondissement. L’oeuvre...

One of the greatest parallels in The Lion and the Rose is that between what Sansa and Theon are made to endure. Of course Theon’s torment is more physical than Sansa’s for numerous reasons (first and foremost being that Theon himself is guilty of great crimes and is tortured by a man even crueler than Joffrey and with more of the means to cruelty at his fingertips/fewer social mores to protect his victims) but there’s a clear line drawn between the two.
In Theon’s scenes, he’s tortured by Ramsay physically and psychologically and made to endure this torment and the news of sorrow and the loss of the one man he’s ever respected and loved without faltering. But the thing about Theon’s tale is that it’s supposed to tell us that no matter how horrifying and horrible you have been, you never deserve what Ramsay has done to him, ever. No one deserves to be dehumanized and tortured the way that Theon is.
And Sansa endures great tragedy and torture and constant threat to her mind and her person with a grace and elegance no one else could ever dream of. But what’s more is she endures it and manages to maintain the quality that is most essential to her - her kindness. Even after years of being psychologically destroyed and sold off to a monster who’s family murdered hers, of being forced to smile as the death of her mother and brother and father are bandied about as jokes, and profess her loyalty to the man who had them all done in, that she can still find it within herself to be kind is what makes her so spectacular.
Theon spent all of season 2 telling you why he deserved better from this life, but Sansa never did. The truth is she doesn’t whine and she doesn’t tell you how hard her life was because it wasn’t. She was a beloved fairytale princess until she wasn’t. She thought she would marry a King until the day she started praying that she wouldn’t. All she wants is to go home.
And at the end of the day, that’s what Theon wants as well. They both want to go back to Winterfell. They both want to return to the life that they always dreamed themselves beyond. And that’s what makes their parallel stories so powerful.
