I wouldn't worry about this part. I actually reread this chapter as I wondered about this part myself. But the first meeting, wasn't even a meeting, just Kirito noting them due to his awereness skills. The seond meeting happens after they peeked into the boss room and that is when they talk to them. So eliminating the first event doesn't have any impact on the story at all.

But somewhat regrettably it removes the romantically-loaded scene where Kirito wraps his jacket (or was it a cloak?) around Asuna in order to hide her. Shippers around the world are wailing at the loss

Like Znail said, the initial encounter with the Army was just an "Oh, hey, what's the Army doing on this floor?" They didn't actually talk to the Army until after they'd run away from the Gleameyes, started picnicing in a safe area, Klein and company had come along, and then the Army finally showed up asking the way to the boss room.

So the first encounter can be cut, and the question "what's the army doing here?" can easily be added to the second encounter.

Plus, not only do they have Yui in the opening, when they adapted Aria in the Starless Night, they cut all the Argo stuff, but kept Kibaou. Who I'm pretty sure is supposed to be the same Kibaou that was being a negative influence on the Army in Morning Dew Girl, and the one behind the Army being sent to fight a floor boss in the first place.

I was surprised when they met Gleam Eyes already. Could have used some more romancing and ended with meeting the Army. But then again, the pacing and fitting everything into 20 minutes segments can be very tricky. But so far so good.

The first meeting was foreshadowing. That's what worries me - that if there isn't a first, there won't be a second.

It was foreshadowing, but not particularly required foreshadowing. It's not like the Army suddenly busts in on them fighting the boss and bails them out, or anything else that would make encountering them a DEM. They just come into the same safe area where Kirito and company are taking a break, and take a break themselves as their leader talks to Kirito and company. Plus not only do Kirito and Asuna need to encounter the army group, they need to encounter Klein and his guild.

I don't think they'll suddenly make a drastic move like cutting out the army guys getting their asses handed to them. That would remove the reason for Kirito to fight next week.

The army guys were left out, we will probably see them next episode.
Remember, they were sent out by Kibaou (the one from Ep.2), who also plays an antagonist role in Morning Dew Girl, so he will/has to be included.

So my guess is we see them run away, meet Klein&co, meet army guys and then continues on with the LN.

Yupp, that would mean that Klein for some reason would have to decide that this little group should try and solo a floor Boss...

I think they just wanted a big cliffhanger, so they went with Gleam Eyes right away. We'll likely see the Army after they run out.

No, because he doesn't have red eyes. It's clearly PoH, because he looks exactly the same as he did in episode 6.

PoH is also around at this time, even in the novel, so us seeing him doesn't mean new anime material.

Spoiler for future episode titles:

at this point in the novel, both XaXa and Johnnie Black were lock up.

They could have PoH approach Kuradeel with the whole paralysis plan, which seems to flow well from how we saw him smirk after he witnessed the duel.

Really, there's nothing else in the remaining SAO story they could do with him besides that.

I'm pretty sure in the LN that by the time Heathcliff called up Kirito for a duel, Kirito already mentioned his <Holy Sword> unique skill (and that it's public knowledge). Hasn't been mentioned once in the anime yet.

It's just interesting because I've been perusing the episode 9 thread, and there's quite a few people speculating as to why Heathcliff would challenge Kirito when he's at a 'disadvantage'.

Some aren't actually speculating, but rather giving clues in disguise. /shot
