I always like to tell a story through the clothes, and I think it helps the actors, too. Sansa is a perfect example of this. She leaves Winterfell for a life at court early in the first season and begins to take on more and more of Queen Cersei’s traits as season one goes on. By the end of the season, she’s really starting to look like her. But in season two, her dresses are destroyed in the first half of the season, and Sansa starts reverting back to her childhood. The colors start coming down, and she’s trying to alter things back to where she was.
But most novels simply have too much story for these time frames. Produce a direct scene-for-scene, line-for-line adaptation, and you’ll end up with something too long for either flatscreen or Cineplex.

He admires his uncle Benjen [played by Joseph Mawle], who’s First Ranger in the Watch, and I think he senses that Benjen feels a bit of an outcast himself. He sees the Night’s Watch as a noble calling, and the Wall as a place where he can become more than a bastard. Of course, he discovers the Wall and the Night’s Watch to be very different from what he expected. I think the first season is really about Jon losing his family: his father dead, his uncle missing beyond the Wall, his brothers and sisters separated, Robb leading a war.
