To take the relationship from a simmering subtext to blatant main text is completely in line with the show’s mission to redefine fairytales and dole out happy endings like candy. Two ladies uniting in love for their son (and possibly each other yes please) is just a logical as hell next step.
Rhimes’ show is obsessed with these betrayals, the most fundamental of betrayals. Adultery is the most horrific of emotional crimes one can commit against another and she uses it to pry apart these characters and expose the roots of them.
Emma doesn’t know her well enough or feel secure enough in their relationship to say “you may wear hats because it helps after you got that haircut that makes your ears look crazy huge but I look pretty okay with some Aquanet and a curling iron so let’s call it a day.”
He begs Brienne to just “accept” her fate and she quickly snaps back “would you.” No, he wouldn’t because he’s a man. In Jaime’s eyes (and many men’s eyes) he’d still have some minute measure of power despite the act of rape being entirely…

The big reveal, besides her boyfriend’s penchant for being a nutty birther, was that her father handed his best friend over to HUAC. That that would be just as damaging to her political career as a birther or fan fiction is why we love The Good Wife.
hey’re the only two women not of noble blood and it is no coincidence that they’re both prostitutes. It is the only way a woman without a title can hope to make it in the patriarchal feudalist society George R. R. Martin has carefully cultivated from history.
