I can only take it as a veer back towards Assholehood for Jaime, after being shown in a surprisingly sympathetic light for weeks, and this of course after first being caught diddling his sister and subsequently paralyzing a child. With Young King Whorestabber out of the picture, the show needs an ultimate evil (short of snow zombies), and this may have been meant to serve as a means to that end.
But the confusion evinced by so many is perfectly valid, because of the ambiguity of the scene. As such things go, it could have been portrayed as infinitely worse — “not here” is not the strongest of arguments, given the circumstances. I’m not entirely sure what the scene was intended to accomplish, and given the power of the context of the scene, that is not a good thing. Was it rape? Yes, she was clearly against the idea, if apparently mainly for reasons of decorum. But if it was used as a tool to re-establish Jaime’s manhood, well…He’s certainly a bad guy again. Maybe it is as simple as the idea of a (somehow) relatively sympathetic character committing the act. If The Mountain had raped someone, it would be considerably less controversial, I’m betting. So maybe it wasn’t so much the rape, as the rapist.

But he has such nice eyes. Nothing screaming serial killer or child molester behind them at all. Just pure innocence. Bunny rabbits and maypoles and such.
Seriously, I’ve seen that look once before, but worse. It was a picture of Michael Jackson right before his trial ended, and he must have just been told he was going to win. It was gleeful evil. Gleevil, perhaps. To me it rivals that famous shot of Richard Ramirez in court, in terms of wordless utter malevolence.

Check her will. Actually, make sure she has a will. Either way, the safe bet is as things stand, her estate lands in her mother’s lap. One visit with a competent Estate Law attorney might well make her mother suddenly realize the extent of her daughter’s mental issues. Of course, she might leave everything to “that nice short man on the dragon show,” but my initial point remains valid.

Film a scene with Dinklage struggling to emerge from between those breasts like a puppy fighting his way free of two feather pillows, and Pop Culture can just freeze in a moment of pure attainment.
