When You Wish Upon a Plot Point...

I wish Viserys wasnt killed because he would have made a fantastic villain.
I wish Tywin was offed long before he was.
I wish Cersei never had a POV.

I think the fact that Ned did NOT trust cat with the secret says it all. He feared that Cat would hate and hurt Jon. He prayed that she would never have to choose.
Sorry Cat was cruel as a step mother. Exactly like the step mother in Jane Eyre. I think sending Jon to the wall was pretty harsh. Also foolish. Jon at Winterfell would have given Robb much needed assistance. Jon could have stayed behind to protect Bran and Rickon.
Cruel by the standards of the modern Western world? Maybe, although honestly I'm at least half of the opinion that as he's not her kid, she shouldn't be expected to take any hand in raising him if she hates doing so.
Cruel by the standards of the setting? Not at all. Half of the parents that we meet probably treat their own children worse than Cat treats Jon and the mere fact of her tolerating him in the household is more than most bastards can ever hope for

I wish that Tyrion had just gone on a long fact-finding mission to find out where whores go and not come back.
I wish Jon had kept Ghost with him during his last Dance chapter.
I wish the WoS had never happened.
I wish the use of gang rape for male character angst didn't happen.

I wish someone had told Gendry why he was so important.
I wish Shae hadn't sold Tyrion out to Cersei.
I wish Dany decided against taking Meereen.
I wish Jon Snow would have gotten the chance to tell Catelyn Stark where whores go.

As in, you wish Tyrion went away and we never read or heard about him again? Really?
