OP wants opinions on Theon so here's mine. You've made me despise him and everything about him OP. I don't care about his ego crisis, oops meant identity crisis, don't care about his daddy issues, oops hostage situation, don't care that he was picked on, oops bullied. I don't sympathize with him or wish to emphasize with him. I don't need to, but I am pretty certain I understand his character without doing either. I don't post in the forums hardly ever, but this has been nagging at me for some time. You've taken a great character and analysed him and excused him to the point that he's unrecognizable as the character that Martin has written. Don't bother to reply to this because I have nothing to argue about, my mind is pretty much made up about Theon, I don't like his character and you can't impart any vast knowledge that will change it. I do agree with you on many other things and enjoy your posts on almost every other topic just not Theon.
