I'm kinda curious to see how they restructure the "Arstan Whitebeard" story arc. I mean, they either have to abandon the alias altogether, or he's got to be masked. Otherwise, it's going to obvious to everyone watching that it's Barristan Selmy. Hiding his identity (albeit somewhat poorly) with a name change is kind of a literary device.

I waited like 10 minutes, went over and picked the book up... re read the passage, then closed it quietly with the bookmark to gather my thoughts.
Sooo... at least that part wasn't very hard for me to "put down".

By that point in tthe book, I was totally roped in by Dany, Jon, Tyrion, and Arya that it wasn't so terrible. I was still shocked and kind of mad, but there were more characters that I was invested in at that point than when Ned was killed off.

Ya know how Jaime throws Cersei's letter in the fire at the end of A Feast of Crows? Once Cersei gets out of jail (like it's not going to happen), I could see her sentencing him to death. It would truly be epic if someone from the Night's Watch was present and offered to make him a brother.
Just an idea anyway.

Ned figuring out the Lannister secret; boom dead.
Robb winning every battle and startingto change the tide of the war; boom red wedding.
Jamie about to be home and safe; Vargo Hoat takes his sword hand making him alot less of a badass.
Dany finally on her way back home with the love of her life, boom hes
Killed by a sorceress.
List goes on and on.
This series seems to have a certain sort of realistic humanity to it. The good guys don't always win, and the bad guys don't always lose. You never truly know what's going to happen. Peyter Baylesh seems to be the only person in the series truly winning at every corner.

That just means Littlefinger's downfall is going to be exceptionally messy.
