The episode titled “The Gift” from Game of Thrones shows various interesting scenes. Things have definitely progressed since the rape scenario.
After what occurred seven days previously, things had to take on a different turn. The terrible rape that took place had to be somehow erased from the collective memory. Sansa finds herself in trouble again. While she is sitting all wounded in her room, Reek brings her a something to eat. But she tries to cajole him into helping her get out of the situation she is in. He ventures forth to Ramsay instead.

The fact that spousal abuse in marriage takes place so often and that even rape is a possibility within its context is something to be ashamed of. This may seem like a phenomenon belonging in the Middle Ages but in fact it is commonly found in today’s postmodern world too. Even in the enlightened West where the institution of slavery has pretty much ended, the vestiges of domestic abuse remain intact.

Snow leads the expedition to discover the Wildlings. The masses of dead are to be warded off via their help. The White Walkers too have to be averted from arriving en masse. Sam and Gilly are thus left together for better or for worse. Gilly’s offspring is like Aemon’s brother Aegon also known as “Egg”.
Aegon is to ascend and rule the throne when Aemon forgoes ruling it. Sam is at the mercy of the Crows. The crows try to create a nuisance for Gilly and Sam fights them off to the last ounce of strength left in him.
Stannis meanwhile tries to fight the bad dudes. Tyrion had defeated him the very first time though. The armed forces on the other hand are running low on supplies. And as everyone knows an army marches on its stomach. Castle Black is the only source of solace in these dismal conditions. And the winter months that lie ahead could test the strongest soul.
Stannis may be forced to kill his own daughter in order to assuage the gods. As for Sansa, she is left to her own devices and the result is not good. Lady Bolton is a proud and courageous person though. Sansa will have to entice Theon into giving her a helping hand.
Sansa tells Ramsay to his face that he is illegitimate and there are no two ways about it. Cersei on the contrary has a lot on her plate too. And the mess won’t be cleaned up without a thorough shakeup.
