Yeah, there is definitely that progression that I went through where I became sympathetic toward Sansa, and maybe a little less thrilled with how Arya turned out. Both are still great characters and the fact that they've both developed in different ways just shows how talented GRRM is.
Am I the only who thinks that Arya Crow-killer & Sam the Slayer have become the characters that other important characters "bump" into when needed? It seems like we'll get a big build up for these characters who are about cross paths and then they pretty much just pass by with only indirect contact (aside from Sam and Bran- which was cool. How many Stark siblings has Sam met so far?)
