Lummel Posted January 18, 2013 Share Posted January 18, 2013 Just because we like it doesn't mean everybody else will :)All I can say is that bad ass means naughty donkey. It's a bizarre popular culture concept were killing people in a dramatic and theatrical manner while displaying sangfroid is applauded. But GRRM is combining realism with fantasy. We see plausible psychological grounds for the likes of Sandor and Tywin. We see the consequences of violence, it's not acrobatic but horrible. Arya is a little girl, she should be throwing balls not kettles of hot weasel soup. She been pluged into a world of horror.Yes the signs of the plot are there to be seen, Glover clearly expected Hoat's men to be releasing them. The captives also are dirty appearing - but not injured. You'd expect more injured men among a group captured in battle. Arya's action sped things up, but also if she hadn't been involved, she would not have ended up as Roose Bolton's cupbearer and chief leech wrangler.
