Plus, he's a great evil villain. The only reason I could see them cutting him is because he won't have much to do for at least one season. However, neither will Theon, and I think the audience would still remember him down the line.

And the twist ending in ACOK is awesome. It would be a shame to lose it.

I've read theories on the ending of S2. One idea is that they delay the ending of aCoK until S2. I'm not sure. I think the last chapter in aCoK is a brilliant ending and i'd miss it in S2. But by delaying the finale, they could introduce Ramsay in S3. Anyhow, there are a few possibilities. We are definitely going to end up with

Like Pliskin said, the shock ending and the Bastard of Bolton's big reveal were great. It would be a huge shame to rob the HBO series of that.

The only thing I can think of is that they're going to come up with their own ending to the series. AFFC and ADWD probably aren't going to make for compelling television, since it's a whole bunch of new characters and not much happens in either of the books. Plus, GRRM is not even going to be close to fininishing the books in a timely fashion for purposes of the television series. I would guess that we get the events of ASOS, and then they make a 4th season that's nothing like the books and they have an ending, because I think viewers would be pretty unhappy to have the series left hanging at the end of ASOS.

GRRM has more than 3 years to write tWoW (with some chapters already written that were excised from aDwD). More importantly, D&D and GRRM can actually talk to each other. They are already aware of some of the big secrets in aSoIaF. They saw aDwD a lot earlier than us. I'm sure they'll see tWoW a lot earlier than us also. So they don't have to worry about material for 6 seasons at least. There may be an issue subsequently but if we get to 7 seasons, who is going to worry that much?
Turning aFfC and aDwD into TV will be challenging (and there almost certainly will be more stuff cut from those potential seasons) but you can't say not much happens. That's just silly. And just because Ramsay doesn't appear in S2, it doesn't mean he is cut forever. Roose didn't appear in S1 and yet here he is in S2. People shouldn't worry so much.
