J_Crews Posted April 14, 2012 Share Posted April 14, 2012 In the book, the squeezing was clearly in the context of Asha mocking Theon. Besides, she was squeezing in the book. Theon was doing far more than squeeing or quickly grabbing Yara on the show. He was full on fingering her. It was not equivalent to Asha's squeezing- rather, it would be like if Asha was j*cking him off in the book. It went a level farther on the show than in the book, and it was made worse because it was basically stripped from the context.The show turned a funny scene of overconfident, somehwat delusional Theon being humiliated by his crafty sister into another creepy incest scene. Yara looked like she wanted sexual gratification from Theon despite knowing that he was her brother. That completely misses the point of the scene in the book. HBO botched the scene. I don't remember many (if any) scenes from Season 1 that I thought were poorly done. I can think of several poorly done scenes from Season 2 and we're only two episodes in.I don't buy that he was "full on fingering her." Dude would have to have some awfully long fingers. I've watching it 3 times and it was pretty clear to me he got his fingers just below her pants; not to be vulgar, but he mighta felt bush, but no clit. He wasn't far enough in there. Where I think the scene failed was in cutting some of the flirty banter between the two when he thought she was the shipwright's wife.
