The North Needs a Reminder (Spoilers)
Did the show kill the Grand Northern Conspiracy? I was a little bummed that the Umbers genuinely betrayed Rickon. Add to that the fact that Jon and Sansa had to beg for troops. There was no plot to revolt against house Bolton. The Brotherhood Without Banners is more concerned about WWs than Freys. What was the point of having old lady at Winterfell who got flayed by Ramsey? I hope things go differently in the books. I love a good Frey pie as much as the next guy, but if the Northern Lords don't show up to help the Starks what's the point?
