D&D are terrible
But what I'm really annoyed about are the senseless and moronic changes to Sansa and Arya's storylines.
Sansa revealing herself to the lords of the Vale? Taking out that whole bit where she pretends to be Alayne? Making her trust Petyr? Could these choices be any more stupid?
Also: having Arya laugh at the news of Lysa's death simply shows me that the show runners have no clue how Arya was feeling at this point in the books. They only care about the "badass" parts of Arya's character, like killing people and using a sword. At this point in her character development Arya is traumatized and going through PTSD because she has just spend years living in a war zone. She is a child who has lost nearly all the family left to her, been the victim of slave labor, been threatened with rape and murder, etc. When she thinks about killing she feels "empty" and we never see her feel especially satisfied when she has killed someone. Arya just wants to go home, and at this point in her journey she's realizing she has no home left. There is no satisfaction or enjoyment left in her. At all.
Having Sandor totally announce himself and Arya at the Bloody Gate? How stupid and clueless can you possibly BE?
I'm going to watch the rest of the season but after this I quit. I love the actors, I love the sets and (most of) the costumes, but I hate these writers and their complete lack of ability to portray accurate characterizations.
