The kinslayer is accursed in the eyes of gods and men. (Book spoilers)

But this opens up the way for a great line from Vargo Hoat: “Y U kiwl Jon-Boy Alton, Kingthlayer?”, right before he demanumits him.

The argument that 'he knew he was a valuable hostage and therefore safe' doesn't hold much water for me. It's cold, he's trapped in a cell and he's covered in shit. He is getting weaker by the day and people like Lord Karstark want him dead. He's hardly "safe."

But no, he just had to smash his face is.
Exactly. People seem to constantly overlook this point.
Jaime's book crimes are morally questionable but they were never gratuitous. The scene with Alton makes Jaime out to be some kind of cold-blooded sociopath (and according to the commentary, that's exactly what the writers think of him), because HBO need to sensationalize everything. I think they've almost single-handedly ruined his redemption arc now.

Of course not, because HBO want to change what they can for kicks and to hell with the consequences.

Jaime, even when he was an arrogant airhead, always had regard for his family. His father, his sister (unlike her, he truly loved her), Tyrion (biggest example of this regard since others looked down upon Tyrion). He would never kill a Lannister kid, especially just to have a vain attempt at escaping a camp full of thousands of Northmen.
And if the Alton kid truly was Cleos Frey, that just makes the scene even more stupid seeing as Alton is a first cousin to Jaime in this case and a son of his aunt Genna Lannister. Jaime was really close to Genna Lannister, who also happens to be Tywin Fucking Lannister's sister.
Bad move, fellows.

Still a betrayal of a scene that shows how HBO are getting these characters ass-backwards (Robb, Jon, Cersei, Brienne, Jaime...)

Yes, if you could

How about the killing of Ned's guards in KL? Who was this action meant to protect? If anything, it endangered Tyrion more.
In the books he didn't kill Jory

Yes, he had him killed. Why is that detail important?
