Tadco26 Posted June 9, 2014 Share Posted June 9, 2014 I'm kind of surprised that they haven't had Mance reappear on the show prior to the attack to remind non-readers who he is. It would have also given a chance to introduce Dalla and Val, but I suspect they cut both of them from the show. Jon's negotiation/assasination attempt was far-fetched in the books, but it appears he is going with no weapon? And he has a significantly worse relationship with every wildling outside of Ygritte in the show. Tormund still likes Jon and defends his right to speak to Mance when he is sent in the book. Tormund is captured on the show, and has no respect or friendship with Jon to speak of, and of course won't be there to speak up for him when he goes to try and meet Mance. The changes also make their future book interactions of brokering the wildling/night's watch peace much harder to make convincing. Of course the show has a history of changing things, and then going back to the book storyline as if the changes never happened, so who knows what they will do.
