Did you know you were going to 'rehabilitate' Guy?

From: Raymond E. Feist

Never saw it as "rehabilitating," rather just he had a different story. Originally, he was going to be caught and pardoned, but a friend of mine pointed out that even though the dying king asked for him to be forgiven, the modern reader expected some retribution.

When I got to the scene between Guy and Arutha, I had most of it down in my head, but one thing my subconscious supplied me with was the entire love triangle bit. Prior than that, it was a simple disagreement over political needs. But when I did the bit about Arutha's mother, it made a great deal more sense to have a personal issue at the heart of it.
