    Favorite POV Character

    Tyrion didn't become a favorite for me until A Clash of Kings.

    Lord Bolton (and not exactly for the better)

    Its impossible not to be drawn to the story from his perspective. The only reason I could handle his death was because of Arya's POVs.

    Ned's first and foremost.

    Renly: Per Loras's story, he really did nail the truth about Brienne (I honestly thought Renly was just using her). Arya & Sandor dynamic: they started as mortal enemies to end up as surrogate father and daughter. The Greyjoys: nice spin on the family dynamic Irri: her sexuality and its relation to Dany was a complete surprise. Jaime: obviously.

    I can't say I changed my mind about him because I didn't really know him before this book. However, the Red Viper did change my mind about the Dornish people; they weren't just passive-agressive little worms, they were mighty snakes with a cunning plan to size revenge without a diplomatic incident or produce a martyr in the process.

    I think they are making a 180° spin on Shae's plot to fool those of us who read the books. She's more Tysha than book Shae at this point so I reckon that, if she dies, Tyrion is not going to be the one that kills her.

    Lysa Arryn. She went from victim to co-conspirator and her end was nowhere near as awful as she deserved.

    Arya has value should a Lannister marries her to ensure Winterfell. And I doubt the Hound would let them, even if the only Lannisters left are Jaime and Lancel. She's safe for the moment.

    I thought the scene where Jon clean his wounds serves that purpose: he explained himself better than he did on the books IMO. He's not a child trying to hold on to his first girlfriend, he's a man of the Night's Watch, saying goodbye to one of Mance's Rayder's most loyal soldiers (its a theme Jon would revisit, as he chooses the Watch over love, over children, over his friends, over his own sisters even).

    It was a welcomed surprised Ygritte ended ended up this season alive, as I was sure they were going to end in the middle point of the book.(a.k.a. the biggest fire the north has ever seen) I don't think any son Jon would father with Ygritte would be a bastard because he made the point that every wildling would know she was his woman, particularly Orell. If she ever has a child, then everyone would know who is the father of said child, which is the only reason Jon avoided it before (he doesn't know who was his mother).

    I mostly ignored her, really. The character didn't pop-up until she unknowingly double-crossed Ned Stark when he was planning to send them away. Favorite POVs will always be Ned's, we lost him way too son IMO.

    To me, it ties a lot with what Ygritte said about Jon being loyal to his woman on "The Climb, which I have no doubt he'll remain for the rest of his life - not that he can actually cheat on her in a Wall full of men - but, as loyal as Jon is to his woman, he has a job as well and he intends to finish it. He loves her, he said so himself. But he's a crow and will remain one for as long as he is alive.

    I'd say Shae is as good as dead. Judging only by Talisa's plot, I seriously doubt Tyrion is going to be the one to kill her.

    At least the entire part of the Army that remained loyal to the King in the North. Remember: Robb Stark had already lost big chunks of his army when Karstark's men left him, Edmure won a mill losing half his men, Bolton's men chose to play for the other side, Robb chose to marry a foreign girl from Volantis and so on. There were still enough men in the north for an army, they just weren't fighting for Robb's army anymore.
