Pretty much the case and I think we will see it far more often with combined events and condensed characters. Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler! For instance the shadow baby...if I am remembering the books correctly, we don't see the birth of the one that kills renly. The scene with Davos and the bars is him repeating his smuggling voyage to get her into the castle so that they can kill the guy who is still loyal to Renly and get the bastard kid. It was a little odd in the show that they included the bars since Renly is sleeping in a tent and it doesn't make sense that Davos would be bringing her into some random tunnel where he is surprised to find bars if he was just trying to get her to shore.
