I think Sasha complicated feelings towards Marcy this ep was very interesting to see actually and ppl are once again missing all the hints of Sasha's true feelings towards her friendship with Marcy
First of all the ep started with Marcy showing her favorite movie to the girls and them (in her vision) ignoring her interests. It's totally natural for Marcy to be hurt and sad over this and hold a little grudge (even if subconsciously) over them and how they treated her
Sasha is changing and becoming a better person FOR SURE but we also have to remember that above all else Sasha is a child and human, she obviously has flaws and, while doing her best to control them, it doesn't just disappear so fast over years and years of having this behavior
Sasha is controlling, selfish, quick to anger and very hypocritical and even if she is making progress to make her qualities outshine more, her flaws are still something that she can't just let go completely. That's totally normal specially to a KID trying to change
But the thing is that Sasha even tho saying that she didn't cared about Marcy's movie, she still remember the plot that marcy told her perfectly!
Sasha even tho she said that she didn't know if she could save her friendship with Marcy, was worried about her and was the one that mentioned her THE WHOLE TIME. She was the one that brought the topic of her to even start all of this !
And look, I know it sounds really angering hearing Sasha of all people not wanting to forgive Marcy after spending the whole season talking about 2nd chances... SPECIALLY considering her own mistakes...
just because sasha made her own wrong doings this doesn't mean she isn't allowed to be hurt
And if she didn't care about Marcy why would she even mind and be SO bothered about the idea of their friendship not lasting anymore??
"Let's say you're right"
Sasha is very reluctant to accepting that she's wrong and that she committed mistakes and even with her redemption we know that she still has a hard time forgiving others (and herself)
Sasha truly cares about Marcy but considering her attitude in s2 with Anne's "betrayal", we should've know better and see this little stubborn part of her coming from a mile away.
But even with all her anger, all her resentment and all her sadness, Sasha can't help but worry about Marcy all the time!
Hell! Why would she even create this rebellion who's one of the goals is to rescue Marcy if she didn't CARED about her?!?! And this is her goal all the ep!!
AND HERE COMES THE MARCY'S GRUDGE THAT I MENTIONED EARLIER!
The core knows how hurt Marcy was by her girls, SPECIALLY, Sasha's indifference to a lot of Marcy's ramblings and actions
And so does Sasha.
So that's why she's the only one truly hurt at this scene bc she KNOWS that this message was directly to her and how she treated Marcy (before AND during amphibia)
And THATS why their fight next EP is so perfect
Sasha trying her best to get Marcy back to show how much she meant to Sasha, how much she cared about her!! This has so much potential!
Look how Sasha has her guard down in this fight... Almost like she doesn't want to truly hurt Marcy... But also is going to make an effort to get her back.... Splendid!!!
i swear to god every time smth like this shows up in davos chapters i can't help my morbid laughter. idk how more obvious grrm could make it for readers that stannis is fake from beginning to the end.
i mean red comet “heralding their coming”? lightbringer? *cough*drogon*cough* PAID THE PRICE? damn, guys, dany already did all of this in agot and by herself, without anyone pushing her to hatch dragons and handing all the solutions and receipts to her. the chosen one of r'hllor who again?
but what is more hilarious abt these quotes is not just pointing at stannis being so obviously a red herring of azor ahai reborn that it's painfully embarrassing already again (bc c'mon his very first introduction scene was a mockery of a real creation of lightbringer) but ALSO a failed parallel to aegon the conqueror. in any other story it would be a man to be the one, to be THEE hero, but in asoiaf? nope. stannis or whoever else might have aegon's castle, might stand where he stood by the painted table and plan to achieve what he achieved aka the conquest of westeros, but it doesn't make him the next aegon the conqueror. in fact, we actually have the real aegon the conqueror come again who does share real parallels w him that were put there by the author on purpose. our beloved aegon the conqueror w teats <33
