I hope this reaches you in time. My father has rejected the offer and plans to attack the north, raiding the shores and taking Deepwood Motte. Mobilize your army and make for the north before it's too late. I'll write again when I can.
Short and simple, but great character development. Having Theon wrestle with this torn loyalty -- however subtly -- was one of the best book deviations they've gone for. I loved this scene. It shows how close he was to saying "fuck it" to his increasingly cold and callous family, and instead reaffirming his loyalty to his sworn brother ("am I your brother, now and always?") and best friend. And he looks his letter of warning over. Deeply... before giving it to the fire. The way it cuts off to the drowned god ceremony, and the way he gives this black look to his father before saying the words... just great.
Probably their best book deviation so far, honestly; we have this slight disconnect in the books where Theon deals with his father's budding rebellion offscreen. That right there was a powerful little TV sequence.
