There was more going on with all the characters in this book compared to the last one. There was so much that I don't know where to start. 

SpoilerI almost threw my book when the Frey's killed Robb and Catelyn. I was very upset because I was rooting for both of them. And I thought the Frey's reasoning for why is completely stupid and ridiculous. 

Jorah's detrayal coming to light wasn't surprising. When he kissed Daenerys and proclaimed his love, I initially thought he was going to eventually sell her to one of the enemy kings, instead of him having been selling her secrets and moves the whole time.

And Petyr kissing Sansa was weird amd gross of him. I'm pretty sure it was purely because Sansa is Cat's child. And then to have Lysa blame Sansa was totally unhinged. Cemented my hate for Lysa. Poor Sansa for going through that after everything she's been through with Joffery.
