Re: SPOILER THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)

The book thread is full of my contempt for Theon. I missed the raping, but yeah his murdering ways are unforgettable even if he was coerced by Ramsay. Does Theon deserve flaying, amputation, and castration? Nah. A murderer can still be redeemed though. This is usually with a sacrifice of himself to save others. Does it make him a hero? Nope, but it makes him more interesting from a dramatic standpoint. That's why I said I could end up liking Theon if his redemption goes like I hope. His redemption doesn't involve killing Ramsay, it involves his death to save someone. The guy has to die for his crimes. GRRM could pull off some other form of redemption and I'm sure it would work too. At any rate, depending on Theon's end, he might end up as a top 5 story arc when it's all said and done. His ADWD stuff was off the charts well written.

Very different levels of redemption storylines with Jamie and Theon. Never hated Jamie really, but with Theon I always knew he would betray the Starks eventually. Agree with MrMr that Theon has to sacrifice himself for good. Him torturing Ramsey is just wishful thinking on my part. Just want Ramsey to suffer before he dies.

WTF? Jamie pushed a kid out of the window, hoping he'd die.

No it's okay, Jaime just tried to kill a child - he's not a bad person.

euron's not really done anything but bluster yet. he has a dragon horn. which he gave to his brother. that's it. i'm sure he'll reap destruction or something but the guy bores me, really.

Re: SPOILER THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)

All of Jamie's actions were done for his love for Cersei (which is pretty fucked up I know) or for his family. Other than the Bran incident, he hasn't really done anything which would cause me to despise him. Always thought people were way too hard on him for killing the Mad King. He actually had the balls to do what needed to be done. His POVs later on show that he did struggle with his decisions. His motives are misunderstood by everyone. A character you can eventually respect.

I like Euron a lot but I predict him dying out of nowhere.

Why do you like him?

I find him a little over the top in terms of his villainy. And not in a 'HOLY SHIT IT'S GREGOR' way, either.

C'mon, he's a PIRATE! With an eyepatch. Plus, he has a devil may care attitude, whether it's pretentious or not, I don't know.
