Perhaps people would be so relieved that he didn't live up to their expectations they wouldn't notice. But if his eyes seemed paler … no, I think they would notice that. They wouldn't put two and two together (they have no reason to suspect that it's still Roose), but they could think maybe it's Ramsay who's up to evil sorcery. That would be problematic for Lord Bolton. All that being said, if Bolt-On is true then perhaps part of the reason Roose hates Ramsay so much is he loathes the idea of having to mimic Ramsay's bad behaviour. "No tales were ever told of me," he says in Reek III. Perhaps he's angry he can't keep it that way. Ramsay's eyes are already very pale, like chips of dirty ice. Several people have remarked at how similar they are too Roose's alread, including Roose himself: Quote "I should have had the mother whipped and thrown her child down a well … but the babe did have my eyes. She told me that when her dead husband's brother saw those eyes, he beat her bloody and drove her from the mill." So at best his eyes are only a slight shade darker than Roose's, which is something you'd only notice when they were standing next to each other. And since it would be utterly preposterous to think that Roose is now occupying Ramsay's body or that some other sorcery as afoot, most people would simply chalk it up to their imagination. Remember, Roose has been doing this for thousands of years and nobody has ever caught on. I don't get the sense that Roose hates Ramsey, or anybody else. Like Lady D says: Quote Roose has no feelings, you see. … He does not love, he does not hate, he does not grieve. This is a game to him, mildly diverting. Some men hunt, some hawk, some tumble dice. Roose plays with men. You and me, these Freys, Lord Manderly, his plump new wife, even his bastard, we are but his playthings. Like you said, I think most people will be relieved that Rams has calmed down. They certainly wouldn't jump to the wild conclusion that his body has been switched.
