Jon Arryn, Robert Baratheon,Ned Stark, Tywin Lannister, Hoster Tully shouldn't get any praise for RR they did it for their own selfish gains and accomplished nothing but putting worse monsters on the throne. They were just as horrible as the Targs. Littlefinger, Bloodraven, the Bolton's, Tyrells, Balon, etc..
He tried to murder a child, ordered the deaths of like 5 men just to reprimand Ned and is the cause of a war that has caused millions to suffer and weaken the country against a ice zombie invasion because he couldn't see beyond his sister's vagina, killing a insane King is the least of Jaime's sins and certainly not the biggest.
I've seen bigger. I think thelittledragonthatcould is just arguing that all the other nobles aren't that different than Tywin which I don't agree with because Tywin is a monster in human skin but that's just me.
I don't think the posted is a Tywin apologist, they are just defending their opinion that he's no different from the likes of Ned, Stannis, etc..
So I finished it and no surprise but I loved it!! Killgrave tho terrifying had his amusing moments like telling everyone to shut up in the restaurant, getting mad at the detective for interrupting his deceleration of love with his cell phone and asking Luke if he ruined any chance he had with Jessica lol, my fav Killgrave moments. Trish and Jessica's relationship was perfect and I loved Trishe trying to help at every chance her and Jessica's take down of Simpson was on point. Speaking of Simpson I'm trying to find it in me to be sympathetic because he was a good person trying to help and look what he is now but his and Trish's relationship went really dark and scary really fast and I fear for Trish. Luke Cage was great I'm really looking forward to his series. I loved the side characters so far Marvel's Netflix background characters are really well writen and interesting and Jessica Jones delivered. I loved loved LOVED Malcome, Jeri, etc..... just really great characters. I hope we get another season.
Ned put the welfare of HIS child(Jon is Ned's son no matter his bio parents)above Cat's and so what contrary to some's beliefs Catelyn did not suffer because of Jon. Catelyn had a happy marriage despite Jon who didn't put a dent in her happy safe home and 5 healthy children
Catelyn and the other mothers in this series have done many things to protect their children,some having major consequences and have harmed others even killing innocents to protect them and people defend their actions all the time. All Ned have done in the name of Jon Snow is fed, shelter, educate, protect, and love him without all the plotting, murder, and misery something no other parent ironically can claim in their mission to protect their children.
Where do you come up with this stuff? Ned did not embarrass or hurt Catelyn her whole life they were married for 15yrs. Nor did he put Lyanna's needs above Cat's he put Jon's needs above Cat's as he should have. And where do you get the idea that he would have been okay with her actions?
He's also ordered the deaths of babies and multiple innocents for his own selfish reasons.
Tywin defenders don't label him "evil" because he apparently has justifiable excuses, yet I have never understood how the murder of innocent, helpless children would be justifiable or the gangraped of a child. Tywin is evil.
So I just finished episode 8 and wow Killgrave is on a whole new level of crazy and WTF this show is a mind feck.
Killgrave's confession of love in the police station was chilling and I'm glad that even tho Jessica is damaged she's able to recognized that Killgrave is a sick fuck and I loved K's acting it was a look of horror that someone could call what he did love. Jessica being alone with Killgrave had me anxious throughout all of episode 8.
I also like how they have handled "rape" in this show so far. I know the writer did an interview on how that rape is a go to trope nowadays and how usually it's used to show the men pain. The writer wanted to show the trauma and aftermath of rape and how people deal with that. I'm glad we got the aftermath of what Killgrave did and wasn't shown various scenes of him physically violating Jessica, Hope or any other victim.
