I'm dying to get to the Night Watch's adventures north of the Wall. For all the shit going down in the southlands, I keep sensing there's this big-ass Sword o' Damocles dangling up north on a very frayed and thinning thread. I'm (kind of) sure it won't snap in the second season of potentially seven, but, hell, I gotsta know what's going on up there. And Benjen Stark! The Starks have gotten fucked enough already, I'd like to see him rescued from whatever. (What, a happy ending? On this show? HA)
And to echo the BOOKS DON'T EXIST HERE sentiment, and this may be just me, but I'd like if this extends to not discussing stuff in the books that HAS already happened, such as character background or omissions, plot differences, etc. Cause I'll likely read the books someday as well, and I'd prefer not to have those spoiled, either. So, simply no compare/contrast here at all, if I may be so bold to request.
