I can almost guarantee he dies doing it or soon thereafter. As uncliche as GRRM is, he's been setting this one up for a while. Maybe his redemption act was saving Jeyne, but I doubt it. I think he eventually saves Bran or Rickon or both, and dies in the process, having learned the hard lesson of love forged by intimacy and friendship over "love" forged by bonds in blood (or, I guess put another way, learning who your true friends are).
Ok, scene over ( she was the hottest chick on the show, IMO)
I agree for the most part with your view of Theon. If he's guilty of anything, it's stupidity, born of an ID crisis and need for Daddy's approval-but that doesn't excuse it any more than it warrants the repugnant level of punishment he recd at The Dreafort.. He made a hell of a mess, for sure -he allowed things to happen that he shouldn't have, trusting the wrong people, but also took the blame for Ramsey's psychotic ass, too. and he paid the price for sure. We aren't sure if Ramsey took the frank with the beans, but either way Balon's line is gone, the ultimate expression of a son's failure.
I don't know if he's a redemption case as much as he is a sacrifice. A warning to those who aren't equipped mentally to stay out of The Game or it will eat you alive.
Piece by flayed piece.
I enjoy a good debate, especially when it's full of passion. Take it for what it is. A thick skin will serve you well here,
cuz a good "shut your whore mouth" is always fun. Stick around.
