So lets just step beyond the wall and yadda yadda yadda SPOILERS yadda yadda yadda.
Before we get on to individual bios I'll talk about the overall arc of the Night Watch in CoK. It's dull!! Not a heck of a lot happens other than John Snow's alleged "turncloak" status. HBO will need to spice it up a bit. Speculation here but for the sake of pacing in a tv show if I had my say. They would speed up the Nights Watch story well into ASoS. In CoK you pretty much read chapter after chapter of their long and boring and uneventful trip past the wall seeing a whole lot of nothing with not a clue of where the wildlings have gone off to. Would make for pretty dull television. It would be a smart move on the part of the writing team to speed up their trip to the fist of the first man and hasten the white walkers attack. It would leave next season open to allow for Sams companions to make their journey back to the wall. and John's journey to get back to castle black with the wildlings. It would also give the Nights Watch arc some much needed action that is very lacking for them in CoK.
Thanks for reading peoples! Tomorrow we'll be taking another break from this series and instead be talking about my 10 most anticipated scenes of the season. Stay tuned for the next house update on Saturday for House Tully and House Bolton.
