After watching tonight's Game of Thrones...

...I get the distinct impression that last week's controversial scene between Cersei and Jaime was just poorly directed. The director Alex Graves stated it was supposed to have been a power struggle between the two characters which ended in a consensual outcome, but clearly it didn't come across that way. I really think it was a failure to communicate the nuance he was going for because the behavior of the characters this week simply does not match what we saw on screen last episode.
