Here's The Dumbest Thing About That Last Game Of Thrones

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 4.824% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Everyone’s talking about That One Scene from the last Game of Thrones, which is egregious and stupid and redundant.  We knew that That Character was a villain. We knew that That Other Character was a constant punching bag for more powerful men.  So when we saw that it was dumb, because it was a gratuitously rapetastic scene that actually didn’t show us anything new about the characters and did little to further the plot.
But the dumbest scene, the one that didn’t even make sense in the fucking show, should have gone like this:
“SO YOUR ‘SQUIRE’ KNOWS OF A BIRTHMARK ON YOUR THIGH, SIR.” 
“My squire dresses me in armor for all battles, and tends to my wounds afterwards. My squire would be quite lax if he did NOT know of the birthmark on my upper thigh. Can we go now?”
