Yes on the push/pull between character and plot.
But, speaking of hair–very loosely–if they don’t have a scene with Jaime going down on Claire somewhere along the line I will be very annoyed. After all, they showed Frank doing that, and he didn’t in the book (or did he?) but Jaime did multiple times and I’m tired, tired, tired of THAT being somehow taboo whereas fellatio isn’t. So there! 😉
