[Book Spoilers] Why do they need to smuggle ?

Obviously from a book-reader's perspective, we have to ask questions about Storm's End since the shadow baby chapter was introduced there (after Renly's death). But from strictly a show-watcher's perspective, I think it makes sense that a dark, magical birth needs an equally dark and isolated setting.

I agree, sad we wont get the shock of Renly's death like in the books.
How it breaks down:
(1) If you read the book , no shock.
(2) If you have not read the book, probably wondering what the hell is going on.
(Depending on how smart one is.)

Hmmm it was actually weird that Stannis and his army was on a ship. Is it that Renly has the shore which would necessitate sneaking Mel to land via the cave/tunnel?
If I remember it's not clear even in the novel. Stannis and his main entourage could have been on boats while his main army was encamped on shore.

The cave scene is a great part of the book come to life on screen. I liked it.
Matters not to me if it is Renly or Whatshimname.......since we know the whatshisname was going to be dropped we would otherwise be cheated.
It is where Davos is sure the Red priest is evil....although the rest of us are still wondering at that. I am sure there are plenty of other threads about that

I think the scene was filmed with Storms End in mind, which was later cut out. Why would they need to sneak in a cave blocked by metal bars while Renly's camp is on a open field?
Its called bad writing
