Mithras Posted July 22, 2015 Author Share Posted July 22, 2015 There is a common argument which I want to address to. Some people think that Maggy’s Prophecy is not whitewashing Cersei because it does not absolve her from her wrongdoings and evil acts. Well, that is very naïve. I have seen Aerys apologists. They argue that from legal perspective, Aerys was completely justified in how he handled of Rickard/Brandon. For Cersei, who first handedly witnessed the accuracy of Maggy’s predictions the moment she killed Melara, a much better case can be made about why she was justified to be haunted by Maggy’s Prophecy why it could be expected for her to take necessary precautions to prevent her doom. This is whitewashing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
