I have not read the books, but I really like Robb on the show. I do not get to see enough of him! I don't know why, but it did not really anger me that he put his mother under house arrest. I thought he was putting her there to keep her from messing up anything else, and for her protection. Of course, I do not know the back story, or all of the nuances from the book, so what do I know!?
