Game of Thrones > The Night Lands Review: A Novel Approach > Comments Page 2
Jason. Just cause Craster is feeding a baby to the Others doesn't mean it's Gilly's. Craster only has 20some other wives.
Especially considering the coming events in Winterfell having different sounding names for those two characters could help alleviate some confusion for viewers.
The only part I missed was Tyrion asking Janos about replacements for the Night's Watch commander, then threatening his sons, then telling the new commander of the Night's Watch, (NOT BRONN), to see that Janos' main man falls off the boat in a storm. I lol'd IRL when reading that in the books.
Forget that they call asha keira or that.arya announces who she is too soon what about craster and john snow, are they implying that gilly already had the baby, and if so how will tjis affect the child of mance rayder and the relationship with mormont and craster, the final scene alone throws the story line into question. After watching episode 2 im unfortunately extremely dissapointed in a series that did so well to stick to the book only to make a serious turn in the storyline.
HBO actually changed Asha's name to YARA Greyjoy, to avoid confusion with Osha the wildling. You would think they'd have changed the name of the less significant character, but Osha was already introduced in S1.
The king in the north..-
they introduce asha as kiera to avoid confusion between ASHA and ARYA on the audience... Brienne and Margaery will appear on the next chapters... we don't know anything of them untill Catelyn arrives at Renley's camp.
Thanks King In The North! I wanted to note that name difference but then I thought maybe they were pronouncing it different or something and by the end of my post I forgot to research it further. Asha isn't listed anywhere on IMDB and since I don't know what name he used, I don't even know what to look for. That was very unexpected. Good catch!!
Was I hearing things?
Was Asha introduced as Kiera(sp)?
And Balon never said Asha would lead anything, she had to argue that. Minor annoyance.
And no Uncles (yet). The wild reference to the drowned God, that casual viewers wouldn't begin to understand.
Wondering if they will combine parts of book 3 into season 2, at this pace.
I am disappointed that Arya revealed her true identity to Gendry so quickly. In the book I so badly wanted her to tell her new companions who she was, but she kept it hidden for a long time. That was part of what made her story so compelling. For so long she has to hide who she is, at times having to forget who she truly is, and that made for an interesting read!
