Good point and that's all kinds of weird isn't it? And WHY do they all just agree to let her secede like that? "Oh sure, whatever..."
I can see the Nights Watch as an alternative to prison, some kind of last option just short of banishment, but apparently you can get away with walking away from the vows anyway, so what's the point? Just call it part of the army and a regular outpost. Were they going to rebuild the wall? If so, why? It's not like there aren't ships, that wall isn't keeping much out that isn't a water-fearing zombie.
