Suzanna Stormborn Posted May 7, 2014 Share Posted May 7, 2014 That's funny because I saw the opposite. Although I'm not convinced that Mercy is playing anyone of significance in the play that hardly matters. Arya is using traits that Sansa had/has to achieve success. That is to me the opposite of criticism, it shows appreciation, perhaps an aquired or taught apreciation, but neverthless. There may be a cynical undertone in the writing but it may just as well be about others not seing trough the act, not seeing things for what they are. Maybe Arya suspects that part of Sansa's behaviour was an act, too. I believe it has been decided that Arya is playing Shae, not Sansa. I thought she was Sansa as well the first time I read it, but on a closer look you can tell she is Shae. Shae is the one who went to court and said in front of everyone that her and Tyrion made love, and Shae made it sound like she hated it and he 'made' her call him 'my lion'. I think it is widely known that him and Sansa never consummated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
