Let’s Talk About Spoilers

We have reached the point in the series when this blog can no longer remain entirely spoiler free.  However, I DO want to make sure that anyone who is following the series (and this tumblr) who has not read the books has a great experience watching the show!

Please note/savior:

#GoT3.1 to avoid spoilers from the first episode

#ASoS to avoid any book related spoilers pertaining to events not yet covered by the series.

Is there another tag you’d like…just to be safe?

Anonymous ASKED
I don't mean to sound rude, but how have they thrown Catelyn under the bus? Aside from making freeing Jamie slightly less emotionally charged of a decision, and giving the Renly treaty idea to Robb, I haven't noticed much difference between show and book in regards to her storyline. Making Robb mad at her doesn't change fans oppinions on her, in my oppinion. Those who disliked her for freeing Jamie still will, and those who liked her for it still do.

It’s a fair question, Anon.  I think it’s changes you mention in addition to an ongoing series of smaller changes…Cat is shut out of the few council meetings we’ve seen with Robb, she’s no longer a voice for peace and a democratic approach, her decisions are more overtly orchestrated by others, she is given no moment to argue her stance beyond for the girls in Episode 8, to name a few*…little cracks and blurs and writing -and in writing only- that, if comparing book!Cat to show!Cat, sometimes appear to come from a place of judgement of the character rather than a place of understanding, while promoting Robb to brilliant tactician, infallible hero.  Does that make sense?

Robb being mad at her and looking down from his moral high-ground only to do something arguably more reckless doesn’t change my opinion of Cat.  It does change my opinion of Robb. 

*I have less of a problem than others with her expressing her desire to return to Winterfell and to Bran and Rickon because I think the audience needs those voiced/emotional queues…but I would have also loved for Fairley to have been given the opportunity to dig into Cat’s monologue about all of the children after hearing of Bran and Rickon’s deaths…maybe we’ll get it next season.
