I fear you may be correct, but I will continue to hope; I do feel that, with Osha around and Bran havng his own greendreams, they are largely extraneous now.

Because Bran is now having Jojen's geendreams himself without Jojen.

They could go down to the Neck themselves. They have no cause to go North. Especially since Osha's originals goal was to flee south anyway. We still need Jojen to get Bran to go North and with the way travelling is portrayed on the show so far it wouldn't be mmuch of a big deal.

They could easily be switched to being one of the hill clans with only minor tweaking (giving Meera a real spear instead of a frog spear/trident thingamajigg, etc.). Wouldn't effect the overall story in the slightest, as those folks are also subjects of the Starks, live isolated lives, etc..

Hmm... up until now I thought they would simply transfer the Reeds or something like them to between Winterfell and the Wall, but you're right, it will probably be Luwin to accompany them, not the Reeds. I mean, why else make him find out they were still alive? The problem with this idea is that Luwin would be missed when Winterfell is destroyed - on the other hand, who would remember the Maester when the bastard strikes?
I just don't think Luwin will accompany Rickon, I think he will accompany Bran. I mean, it's hard to imagine him agreeing to go North of the wall with his rational Citadel-mind and everything, but he owes obeisance to Bran, so... And Osha would never agree to go beyond the Wall once more, so I think she'll still go to Skagos with Rickon (but how will they do it in the show, if we don't even know that's what happens in the books? My guess is they will probably make those two roam around the North for a season or two until, if we're lucky, TWoW comes out and we know Rickon's destination and adventures). Bran could still decide to go after the 3EC following his own greendreams, or they'll meet someone along the way who will suggest he does that. And, apart from being logical instead of believing in magic, Luwin is not so different from Jojen: physically weak, probably won't survive coming back South, will be able to explain a few historical facts along the way. And it would be fun to see how a Maester would react to the wights, the CotF, and Coldhands. Which creates another problem: if Coldhands is actually Benjen, wouldn't Luwin recognize him? Or would he try so hard to believe in rational explanations he would discard any similarities as illusions?

Eh, personally, Jojen would have been a good addition to Bran's story line which has not really developed outside of dreaming of the three-eyed crow, a build up of mystery surrounding Bran. Who knows, their omission and addition of scenes so far doesn't really seem logical to me.

Seriously, the Reeds are some of the most expendable characters in the entire series. They're as necessary to the story as Ned Stark's household guards were.

Ooooo! Good call! His face has a haunting quality that would fit Jojen's character perfectly!
