As for Davos, all we know is that a head and a shortened hand are on the castle wall. It could have been a trick to appease the Lannisters. If either of those two are dead I will loose a shit load of respect for GRRM as a writer. Why set up both those characters, give them a POV, and then never really do anything with them? GRRM really does spend a lot of time rambling around. He has two books to finish his story, really I think the jury is out on this series until we see how he resolves/ties together all the characters, plot lines, and drama.
Well Ned, joffrey, tywin, sandor, robb, small/greatjon didn't really do anything either. They're fine one page and then they die the next page. I think grrm feels a perverse joy killing of his main characters. Watches too much Hitchcock or something
