“I don’t serve the Starks. I serve Lady Catelyn”
I just want to say again how important this scene is to me. I know the show has gone off the rails in some places, and that it has some serious problems when it comes to women and minorities, but this scene is a big deal. Brienne is a big deal. Cat is a big deal. These are women transforming a trope by fully occupying it. These are female characters staking out power and forming connection in ways we don’t often get to see. This isn’t just a gesture—it’s a transaction that is essential to the plot and that has major repercussions. When people dismiss sf&f as escapist or reductive, I like to point to this scene.
