Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans
Yep. Makes sense though. In a book, you can easily introduce new characters with paragraphs - if you started the show with that scene, you'd lose people who haven't read. They had to rearrange it and given the rather slow start to A Clash of Kings, that interplay is the biggest moment. Have to close with it.
However, I am concerned that the grouping of Stanis, Melisandre and Davos is going to be utterly dominated by the Melisandre character, rather than leaving her as a sort of mysterious person Davos doesn't really have access to for the first little bit. I think they are going to build her character a lot more in the tv show to introduce the Lord of Light/Fire Religion earlier as it has a lot to play further in the story. It'll weaken the impact of Stanis on the "tv" story.
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
