    The Arc is mostly consistent though the specific events are changed somewhat (though the current result - Arya's blindness is the same).

    Ellaria and the Sand Snakes are being written like human beings who actually have emotions that just might cloud their judgment. As opposed to soulless automatons that are never influenced by them.

    I don't think the message is about honor getting people killed so much as inflexibility/inability to adapt. But even that theme gets stretched thin with certain events.
