I agree with everything here. I understand it is television but the whole battle just felt small to me. As for Jon's friends getting killed, I didn't think they had died in the books. I feel like the producers just don't want to pay as many actors to talk next season so they made some cuts. I liked Sam in the first season but I think he and Gilly could have a rousing contest for who is more boring. I am not looking forward to more of them on their own if the book plot lines are followed.
Great blog! Thanks to Bernie for pointing me to it.
Having read book three I knew that Robb's wife was not at that wedding and that she is alive in book 4 (I haven't read 5 yet), so I was shocked by her death and actually yelled, "What the fuck!" at that moment. My guess is that they just wanted to get rid of his wife's storyline and in turn, get rid of several characters for the next seasons.
Anyway, nice recap. I look forward to reading more.
