* BetaCouple / Foil: Samwell/Gilly parallel the major couple of Jon Snow and Ygritte - both Jon and Samwell took vows of celibacy when they joined the Watch, yet both ultimately fall into romantic and sexual relationships with a female wildling. The skilled warrior Jon Snow hooks up with the woman warrior/archer Ygritte...while the decidedly non-martial Samwell hooks up with the similarly non-martial Gilly. The TV show even invented a brief moment in which Gilly and Ygritte cross paths during the Sack of Mole's Town (and because Ygritte won't harm a mother and baby, she wordlessly lets Gilly flee).



* OnlyOneName: She's actually surprised to learn people ''have'' last names South of the Wall.

* ThePollyanna: As Sam points out: she's still got hope life will get better. As the actress explained, while Gilly was unhappy with how Craster treated her, she lived in such isolation at Craster's Keep, even from the other wildlings, that she really had no basis for comparison - she wasn't ''too'' traumatized by Craster because she had no way of knowing just how relatively bad her situation was.

** They also have similarites with the Iron Born. Their sentiment that you can only keep what you can take and defend? Not to different from paying the Iron Price. Both people where more or less secluded descendants of the First Men, but the Iron Born lived on tree-less islands and turned to a religion based around the sea, while the wildlings had weirdwood trees and thus keept to the Old Gods of the Forest.

* HonorBeforeReason: They [[spoiler: refuse to bow to Stannis and fight under his banner, before or after he has Mance executed, despite him giving them literally everything they wanted and ''needed'': passage through the Wall and land to settle.]] This is a departure from the books, where the sheer desperation of their situation means nine of ten wildlings bend the knee, and a significant portion even coverts to the faith of R'hllor, at least nominally, and their absence from his army is due to Jon pointing out how bad it would look to the Northern nobility whose favor Stannis needs.

The actress praised that despite the past criticisms that the TV producers don't write women well (except when they reflect exactly what Martin himself wrote). However, the episode director later revealed that the part was actually written ''as a man'', and only cast with a woman at the last minute - specifically because of the trope that "women are maternal", and Karsi would be killed because she was hesitant to fight undead children.
