Ramsay audition tape. Now with 100% more Theon anal rape.
Now I'm worried they're thinking of new ways for him to break Theon to avoid the makeup requirements of flaying and lost fingers.

season two was really a huge disappointment
Definitely agree, and I'm fearing for season 3.
-replacing Jeyne with "strong independent woman who don't need no man" Talisa
Giving Jeyne some actual character could have worked, given that she's basically just a plot device, but they fucked it up about as bad as they could have.
-making Stannis seem like a power-hungry villain rather than someone who is only begrudgingly chasing the throne out of a sense of duty
I think it's more Melisandre who've they've gotten wrong in that respect. She comes off as someone manipulating Stannis for her own reasons, but we know for a fact due to her ADWD chapter that she's a true believer. She doesn't have an ulterior motive, she honestly believes he's Azor Ahai reborn.
-making Robb marry under the fucking Seven
Christ, I didn't even notice that.
-changing Robb's motivation from "ashamed of his actions and marrying out of honor" to "fuck my oaths imma marry this chick"
The removal of Bran and Rickon's "deaths" being reported guts both Cat and Robb's motivations this season. Without grief as an excuse they both just come off as retards.
-that awful clusterfuck that was the Mereen storyline
Never a fan of Qarth so didn't really care it was changed. Just wish it hadn't been changed from just being boring to be fucking retarded.
-completely ruining the entire House of the Undying sequence
I'm convinced D&D don't understand the series because of this. They focus entirely on the sex and the violence, when that's not why people are so obsessed with the books. It's prophecy and history that keeps discussion going. It baffles me why they'd cut this. Surely keeping up speculation between seasons is a great way to keep viewers interested, and probably even to attract more.
-Arya not killing the guard
-weasel soup being removed
Her character development is FUCKED. She should be a significantly darker character by this point due to her experiences in Harrenhal, which were entirely removed, and I'm not sure how they're now going to put her through hell to the point where she'll be ready for the Faceless Men training.
Also having the Tickler killed, which robs her of a great scene down the road.
-Roose being changed from "creepy as fuck" to "generic angry lord #9473291209"
Seriously. Would you ever have assumed that was Roose Bolton if they didn't just say it? He shouts in almost every scene he's in, which is the exact opposite of his character.
the only thing I can think of that they improved was Theon's storyline
Theon's character, not his storyline. No Reek is crippling.
