^^^This is why I hope they remain honest to the book storyline for this particular part. I have no doubt that we’ll be rewarded with an amazing interpretation of the book, because the show has been FANTASTIC so far.

[quote quote=4201]Considering what happens in the second half the season it is entirely possible that people will find other things to talk about besides Sam’s ass.

[quote quote=4217]I’m with all of you in dreading that scene. I never expected the flogging to be s disturbing as it was and I can’t even begin to imagine how the end is going to play out. (Mentally preparing myself for that as I know it is going to be extremely difficult to watch).

And I agree and hope that any nudity in those scenes is not going to be the focus of attention.

[quote quote=4204]YES. Absolutely. That is going to be hard to watch. I feel like I could almost read that part of the book with one eye closed but seeing it in living color will be something else entirely. I hope I can sleep after that![/quote]
