I loved this scene so much. The actors play off this pairing as flirty and adorable in a way the characters really weren’t in the novels IMO.
That said, when she said the line, “Girls see more blood than boys,” my husband was all confused and like, “What, warrior women, she means?”
So I just looked at him and started listing off, “Blood from their periods every month, maybe blood from sex, blood from childbirth, blood from tending and washing the wounded and dead…That’s been true for most of womankind all through history.”
And he got very, very quiet.
I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m reblogging again for the commentary because this little exchange is like a wink to the female audience that I really loved and I guarantee you that any woman who saw this would know exactly what she means. There are a pretty big chunk of men in the world who don’t think that “women’s work” or women’s bodies are worth knowing about. Also I think find it really amusing when he tries to pass off his ignorance with, “you’re different, you’re not like other women” and she immediately shuts that down.
