locke's death was pretty useless. why even have him there.

They are trying to keep the budget in check, so instead of using CGI or hiring more actors they are going to use some of these devices from here on out to get to the same point. in this case it was to have an event that allowed Bran to warg into Hodor and use him as a weapon while not using a lot of CGI or new actors. Locke likely has no more to do for the overall arc of the story so why not use an actor that is already being paid to be the threat and to kill him off in an important way.

The show runners have recently said you can expect more of this to keep the budget down to use on other CGI heavy events (like dragons) and to keep the cast manageable.

So we should probably get used to some of these things.

locke's purpose could have been filled by one of the brother's of the night's watch.   none of it made sense.  HEY THIS GUY JUST SHOWED UP YESTERDAY LETS TAKE HIM NORTH OF THE WALL AND KILL OUR BROTHERS.

I don't feel sorry for Sansa at all because this is basically all her own doing basically.

 

I'm not following this at all.  She's pretty much been forced into any situation she's been apart of...unless you're referring to the fact that she initially wanted to go to King's Landing in the first season.  Even so, what high-born girl wouldn't want to go?

I don't know.  A lot of things had to come into play in order for Bran and Jon not to see each other.  I can't see how the writers would have avoided this If it had been another brother of the Night's watch.  At least they actually put some thought behind it.  Locke was up there to spy on the remaining Starks and wanted to prove his worthiness by volunteering.

Probably to give some resolution to the character who chopped off Jaime Lannister's hand instead of being like "_whatever happened to that guy". Plus the scheme to capture Bran for trade bring further context to the Bolton's ambitions and plans.

I didn't have a problem with it at all.

Ahh, okay.  Now I agree with you.  I thought the same thing before last night's episode.

 

As for the Sansa thing, who would have known that Cersei was going to be such a you-know-what.  :devil:

 

Plus, we now know that it's really Littlefinger's doing.

Locke fills the role of Vargo Hoat. Imo the way they merked him was fine. Iirc Vargo Hoat got captured and tortured to death by Tywin Lannister. Soon the TV show and book series are gonna really diverge anyway according to GRRM. The writers for the show already know how the book series ends. The destination is the same but the way the two are gonna get there might be really different.
