To add to it, I think the entire Beric Dondarrion and Lady Stoneheart stories are to justify somebody crucial to the story coming back from the dead. I don't really like it the entire resurrection angle, but I think that's a big reason for Beric and Stoneheart.
Good thinking. That makes a ton of sense, especially since
Beric has really been sort of a throwaway character up until this point. I mean, very interesting and likable, but his addition to the story doesn't really justify four books of buildup, other than to establish precedent.
That's why as a book reader I refrained from posting in this topic this year. Real hard to talk about the 3rd season/book without discussing the events of tonight's episode. Didn't want to spoil it for anyone.
That said it was still hard to watch that even knowing what was coming. The choice to include Robb's wife seemed especially cruel since that didn't occur in the books.
I was planning to go to bed after watching that episode on DVR but damn, gotta burn some oil after that. Love rob as a character so it was tough to take. I know there are many more to come. But poor Arya was right there. So close to seeing them again. She deserves justice before its all said and done.

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
Kudos to you book readers for not letting anything slip about tonight's episode...unbelievable...
That last 15 minutes was a mind blower...I think I'm in shock...
That is good to hear. Somebody posted a couple weeks ago how it was sad that Robb and his wife had a nice moment, and I thought that gave it away. I was debating on whether to post something to defray it or just hope that it would go away.
