    I can't agree more. If I could make GRRM to read one comment on this blog, this would be it.

    This. Can't agree more. How on earth did giving Sansa to the Boltons "secured northmen"??? He didn't have "to love her more than himself" to not give her away to the Boltons, he could have just kept her.

    Littlefinger's giving Sansa away isn't believable. He has been acting for a number of seasons as being obsessed with her. Sansa's believing that she can exert revenge on Boltons on her own isn't believable. She has done nothing in the previous seasons that showed she was planning revenge or that she considered herself capable of taking back Winterfell populated by the army of her enemies.

    Littlefinger sending Sansa to Winterfell never made any sense. Just like JCRB pointed out upthread, Prince Doran sending Trystane to KL didn't make any sense. Yes, there is some kind of laughable explanation for the viewers, but this explanation doesn't withstand any scrutiny.

    The point JCRB is making is precisely that it is NOT the same thing, even if the action is the same or similar -- books make it organic, believable, consistent with the characterization, and the show doesn't. And it is not just an opinion of some feminist book purists - if you check out professional reviews, you'll see that this criticism is quite widespread...maybe, just maybe because it is actually well deserved, don't you think?

    This. Such an obvious plot hole. Doesn't make any sense.

    I agree. Rockroi is my hero - hilarious essay, and very much to the point.

    First of all, there is no need to be rude. Second of all, we don't think we can write a better story than D&D, we think GRRM has written a better story than D&D. There is a difference. And we don't idealize GRRM either. If he started on WOW as soon as he finished DWD, we wouldn't be in a situation we are in right now. This is just a statement of fact, has nothing to do with the sense of entitlement.
