Fav changes from book to show:
I like that Alina manipulates her way onto the skiff in the beginning instead of simply being a soilder assigned to go through the fold. this moment becomes so much more complex, I really liked it.
After Peeka Rollins confronts Kaz Jesper asks "did he recognize you?" which is driving me INSANE. how much does Jesper know of Kaz's past in this universe? clearly be know a little. he knows more than INEJ. I AM GOING FERAL AT THIS IMPLCATION (Kaz also says in the finale that thr darkling has the look of a man out for vengeance and Jesper asks him of knows from looking in the mirror JESPER KNOWS OK)
I like that Mals hunt for the stag is shown on screen
Inej still struggling to kill and making her first kill on screen
the Darkling telling Alina his name way earlier
obviously this a big plot point cause its one of the main changes because of the blended crow storyline but Alina crawling in the Crows trunk of all hiding places
the whole conductor storyline is good
zoya BEING ON THE SKIFF AND TURNJNG AGAINST THE DARKLING IN THAT MOMENT
all crow/grishaverse interactions really
alina being half shu and how that plays into her isolation/motivations through out
the feydor/ivan thing which i DID NOT expect but I thought was actually pretty cute

I'm sorry but can we talk about how stunningly accurate every single Helnik scene was?
Some of those scenes were word-for-word identical, like I literally lost count of how many quotes and moments they took directly from the book and onto the screen.
We asked for a true to text adaptation, and obviously there were going to be some complications because of how the two series were to be mixed, but one part that they were free to do perfectly and separately was Helnik.
And they did. not. dissapoint.
This will forever be remembered as the first time a book-to-tv adaptation met fans' expectations and more.
