Sort of. The Old Gods are associated with warging, which the Stark children are capable of.

But the Seven haven't done shite so far.

Exactly. Plus the Weirwoods are sacred to them.

The Seven are worthless... And what of the Old Gods of Valaria?

I can't believe some people haven't figured out who captured Theon.

Yeah I know. I mean they pointed out last season who was supposed to recapture Winterfell and they kept showing the same sigil over and over during the first couple of episodes this season.

Yeah... it's kinda obvious if you pay attention to the sigils of the differing characters.

Closer to every episode this season. Its been pretty damn prominent.

I mean, you might not realize which individual character is torturing Theon, but it should be pretty blatant which house has him.

Agreed. I think it might not be that obvious if the Bastard himself has him, since they haven't directly mentioned him this season, but clearly he is a Bolton.

Yes and no. His exact name hasn't been mentioned, but the Bastard was in season 2.

I can't even remember last names much less their fricking sigils. Especially if it was one they showed last season

Only one I know is the wolf

You really don't know the Lannister lion? That's been extremely prominent throughout the season, and Jaime even went on a rant about their sigils last episode.

But the sigil I'm talking about has been incredibly prominent this season, even more so than the Wolf of the Starks:




Not really that subtle.

From the Non-Reader thread:

Ok. You think I pay attention to that little x on his thingamajiggy?



You should. They're kind of beating you over the head with it this season. Olena Tyrell went on a rant about it a few episodes back, as did Jaime last episode. He commented on how Bolton's sigil was a bit brutal for his tastes. Just pay attention. Seriously, go back and look at the scene with Jaime in this episode. The flayed man is in view most the time. Just pay attention and you should know the sigils of the prominent houses.

Yeah, I knew a few of those but probably wouldn't have been able to name them in trivial pursuit. I really don't remember seeing the x. Guess I need to rewatch the season

From the book reader thread:

quote:

I hate the book readers. They think they are so much smarter than us. Probably in their "literate" thread calling us hodors



You don't know the god damn Lannister sigil. So yeah, I'm pretty confident I'm smarter than you in the very least. I definitely got that pretty quickly watching the series itself before started reading the books.

Just pay attention instead of posting during the episode. If you'll notice, not a single page is posted in the book readers' thread during the episode, and we know what is going on. The book reader thread instead posts 4-6 pages during the episode. iluv and Powertool pay attention and they know what they're talking about from a non-reader perspective, so its not all non-readers I look down on, just the ones who don't get the point blank obvious.

Is Theon being held captive in the same castle as Jamie and Brienne? yes or no only, please.
