Is there even any hint in the book that Stannis and Melisandre are hooking up? Doesn't that sort of smash his super pious and pure image. I remember part of his stubbornness in the books was rooted in that sort of unwavering purity. Seems like he can't be as judgmental and righteous if he's banging the red witch.
Also, I know some kind of variation of that scene with Craster and Jon Snow takes place but it's been so long, I can't how it all goes down in the book. But what we saw last night was way different, right - and way early?
That bone-the-red-witch-on-the-war table scene was definitely not in the book. Seemed like some HBO-inspired T&A to me. Hope they don't go the TrueBlood route and substitute story line for ass (not that nice ginger ass isn't good).
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
