The Mary Sue No Longer Covering Game of Thrones

The Mary Sue disbands coverage of ‘Game of Thrones’ after Black Wedding scene


sansaIt has probably been a long time coming.  Since it’s inception, GOT has had a very graphic approach to violence and sexual violence.  After reading, it would be easy for one to assume that season six’s most recent episode, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” was the sole reason why many have resigned from watching GOT.  But it was not. “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” has sparked a fury of comments and controversy, for and against, by both men and women alike.  All with different points of discussion with valid reasons as to why they have taken sides like the very characters in the story.  If anything good has resulted in last Sundays episode of Game of Thrones, it’s that it has people talking about an objective social issue that hits very close to millions of women (and men) around the globe.

There’s only so many times you can be disgusted with something you love before you literally can’t bring yourself to look at it anymore. That is where I currently find myself in relation to Game of Thrones. The staff of The Mary Sue feels the same. You may feel differently.

So, from this point forth there will no longer be recaps, photo galleries, trailers, or otherwise promotional items about Game of Thrones on The Mary Sue. The newsworthiness of other items will be discussed by the editorial team on a case by case basis.

We apologize to the cast and crew of the show, as well as countless others invested in the show through their own work, but also to our readers who may feel negatively impacted by this. We’re constantly asking for better from those creating the media we love, for them to really think about what they’re putting out into the world. We simply can’t bring ourselves to be excited by a product which no longer meets our needs as fans.
