[Book Spoilers] Theon and "Boy"

Recommended Posts

I couldn't really hear the dialogue clearly, but did Theon say something to the effect of, "The only father I knew was beheaded in King's Landing?"

Yup, I was watching with subtitles, that's exactly what he said.

"My father died in King's Landing" awesome Theon . . Awesome Alfie Allen is Theon Greyjoy.

and "Boy" is definitely Ramsay Snow . .

Poor Theon indeed, but I loved seeing Ramsay's face when he showed his true colors. He was like a boy getting his Christmas gift :D

I personally loved the scene between these two this episode. As a reader of the books as well ( and a big fan of Theon), I love how DnD added the touches to make Theon sympathetic to the viewers that may not have read (ie: "My real father died in King's Landing..." "I chose wrong..." etc.)

It even made you feel worse for Theon when it was revealed that 'Boy' had led him into a trap. Man, and that evil look in his face too.

What did everyone else think?

(P.S: This is my first post, but I have lurked for a long while now. Feels good to finally get myself involved :D )

Wow that was some scene. I actually feel bad for Theon. It took me much longer in the books to feel bad for him. He realized he royally effed up, but now he is going to pay for it and then some.

Ramsay looks like Evil Peeta Mellark but I think that works here. His con here paid off with information about the fate of Bran and Rickon.

I was saying last week that Rod Serling on the Twilight Zone would describe what Theon is going through as act one of a nightmare. Seeing that cross really drove home the recurring nightmare Theon is going through.

Alfie is terrific...he should have gotten an Emmy nomination last season.

I'm really enjoying this storyline so far. Ramsay is pyscho and Theon is putty in his hands. The way he talked Theon up and then got him thinking of his shortcomings was so cunning.

Ramsay is truly sick. Even after all that he still hasn't identified to Theon his true identity and I bet that he doesn't until near the end of the season.

Also Theon (and show only watchers) must be extremely confused right now, but that storyline is supposed to be confusing.

this scene was one of the ones i liked the best of in the episode. The look in "boys" eyes when they were putting Theon back on the post was classic.

Yeah, Alfie Allen might be the best actor of the whole series, I'm not trying to exaggerate, or be cute. Every Theon scene this season is such a bonus because in Storm of Swords there are no Theon chapters.

That won't be a problem for the show however since they have to go chronologically if it's going to make any sense for viewers
