All these Theon Greyjoy torture scenes are killing me. I feel awful for him.

Ramsay is a new kind of evil. I don't understand why they made him a pretty boy in the show though.

I was thinking about this as I watched. I dont feel an ounce of sympathy for Greyjoy yet. I dont know if the show is trying to garner symp for him. You seem sympathetic but I am not at all and dont think I should be.

I do not think they've shown any type of growth from him. Okay, he realized he acted wrongly in WinterF., he realized again when Ramsay was escorting him back to the dungeon but beyond being sad he hasnt grown as a character/person AND so this is what he gets for betraying the Starks.

He's married in the books but to a completely different girl under a completely different set of circumstances so as a book reader it's interesting to see where the tv is going to go with her.

Question concerning last names...why is Jon Snow's last name not Stark? I know he is a bastard, but his father is Ned. Same goes with Ramsay, his last name is Snow as well, why not Bolton?

Jon and Ramsay both having the last name Snow is strange too.

they are base born, they cannot hold/inherit titles or lands. snow is last name for bastards in the north. the last name changes depending on what region you are from. did a quick search and they are listed below.

The Crownlands-Waters
The North-Snow
The Iron Islands-Pyke
The Riverlands-Rivers
The Vale-Stone
The Westerlands-Hill
The Reach-Flowers
The Stormlands-Storm
Dorne-Sand

Bastards aren't legitimate so they will never have their fathers last name. Bastards born in the North have the last name Snow well for obvious reasons.

I didn't read the books. But, even if I did, the people who've read the books will tell you the series deviates from the original story at times.
