I think they'll do RW right. The buildup towards it is disappointing though. Catelyn is an afterthought in most of her scenes, which is a bit ironic because she's portrayed as more likable and sentimental in the series. Robb is needlessly crazy like a fox. The Talisa scenes are unnecessary and I wonder if it's revealed if she's a spy, does Roose's sending regards bit (I hope not), or just takes on Dacey Mormont's role. Oh, and I hope Blackfish isn't a substitute for Smalljon Umber.
I'd like to see the RW episode mostly concentrated on RW. Perhaps not given the full episode treatment as Blackwater, but enough to build that nagging sense of foreboding.
Cat IS an afterthought.
Robb is clearly dumb and unlikeable.
Who's Grey Wind, again?
The viewership has given up on the King of the North because the TV producers gave up on him by surrounding him with bullys, buffoons, rebellious bannerman and possibly spies. (Not to mention everyone in King's landing has already dismissed Robb and is trying to marry Sansa) TV Robb is just a trainwreck in slow motion. At this point in the book, he's still a major player with a huge, loyal army.
It just won't have the same impact.
Did anyone really think they'd be able to turn this massive series of books into a tv series that came close to it...it's just too massive a project unless they did like 2 seasons of the show per book or something.
