Big time changes from the books in last night's episode.  I can already hear the book purist ******** ranting and raving.  Ultimately, I believe the books and show will end up in generally the same spot, they just have to take different paths to get there and I'm ok with that.  I think I know where they're going with Sansa, Brienne and Pod, but it's going to be tough to watch if they keep certain book aspects and apply them to Sansa.

Naah, i don't think they will do that to her. I think that was more specific to the particular person and situation. Having Sansa in that role changes things significantly, IMO.

But yeah, they are really all over the map making changes.

I hate to keep asking stupid questions every week, but I am having trouble figuring out Littlefinger's interest in wedding off Sansa to the Boltons. He doesn't seem to be getting anything directly out of the deal, and you'd think he would hate them for killing Catelyn. He implies revenge in his brief conversation with Sansa but WTF is she supposed to do there? She's probably the last person in the whole story who would be capable of evening that score. Plus doesn't he have the hots for her too?

What a waste of a perfectly good potential nude scene for Natalie Dormer.  :(

Is Littlefinger planting Sansa into Winterfell to murder the Boltons?  Makes no sense at all...

Yeah, I think we're missing something with Sansa/Littlefinger so far.  I guess we're supposed to just think that Littlefinger is placating the North (Bolton) to solidify himself in the West, but with Littlefinger and his speech to Sansa about revenge, there must be something more they have planned.  Sansa is a really valuable chip to just hand over to the Boltons for no real reward.
