asked: "Some think the scene with Joffrey abusing the prostitutes was to replace some of Sansa's repeated abuses in the book, which we only got a taste of because it's not like they're going to fully strip and beat a 16 year old on television. I kind of agree. And it did a good job of showing how much more he loves violence than sex. Yikes Joff. Yikes."
It may have been a substitute of sorts, yes. Though they subjected Sansa to a bunch of attempted sexual abuse during the riot, so it wasn’t much of a reprieve. But perhaps they shifted her abuse by him to Daisy and Ros to balance it out better in their eyes, yes.
