Roose Bolton was there, with the rest of Robb's men! And so was his flayed man banner, which looked like an upside-down stick man :

Arya and Sansa. This is something I have noticed in some of Game of Thrones reviews, something I have been guilty of myself, namely forever comparing Arya and Sansa. But really, this is like comparing apples and oranges: they are so different, but equally interesting characters, I love them both and always will. The only tiny problem I have is something that I have also seen mentioned: the show seems to look somewhat more favourably on Arya and give us more of her point of view. I might be wrong to think so, but it just seems so to me. I give you just a couple of examples:

1. I have seen Sansa being blamed for the incident with Micah. But for me, Arya is probably the one to blame (or her parents that didn't teach her the ways of the world) . Creating a big rucus with injuring a prince and destroying his property? How do you think this would have flew even in the "democratic" country as the UK where you not really allowed to touch royals, even in our day and age? What did Arya think was going to happen to Micah after he , without any intent on his part, participated in this?

2. Arya's first kill: this is one of the big changes from book to the show: in the book, she killed the boy "in cold blood" where in the show it was accidental.
