Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Even granting that they needed to change Daenerys' storyline for season two (I don't, but I've said my piece on that subject somewhere back in the long history of this thread), the way they went about it underlines the problem: they aren't willing to change end results, so all they can do is contrive dramatic-seeming twists that don't actually matter. The Qarth of the show doesn't end up serving any real narrative or thematic purpose; but for the fact that it would throw the larger timeline out of whack, Daenerys might as well have gone straight to Slaver's Bay.
