karaddin Posted December 3, 2021 Share Posted December 3, 2021 I'm with you on the Whitecloaks, I didn't enjoy that part at all. On the upside, maybe Hopper is still alive since he hasn't been named yet? I really enjoyed all the warder stuff though, thought it really fleshed out a group I never connected to in the books beyond Lan himself. I also think it was doing a ton of set up and foreshadowing, so it's not just a change for the sake of change, but a change to sacrifice some screen time on set up now that will save more time in subsequent seasons when they hope (I assume they hope) they have a larger budget/more freedom to depict other things. To go back to the GoT comparison there were a lot of lines I viewed as "iconic" which were really obvious and seemed pointless changes to me. I don't have quite the same memory of the equivalent lines in WoT so if that happens I'm admittedly less likely to pick up on it, but those are definitely what I'm seeing as red flags in retrospect - if the scene is basically unchanged, but the snappy line is changed just for the sake of changing it. I know there are others that I'm blanking on, but the one I can think of right now is if they changed "your dress is green" while the rest of the scene is unchanged.
