I'm not comparing anything and I never said they were the same.

I pointed out that every character, even the most beloved, have done things that most would condemn. Again, Greyjoy is no exception.



gotcha. i just thought people saying Jon hanging Olly was comparable was a stupid argument. my bad.

Not at all. Jon is easily the "cleanest" character of them all, which is why I used that example.

The story is chock full of characters that all have done really terrible things, yet we still cheer for them.

He was tortured/got his dick cut off, so he's paid his dues.

Hoping for redemption.

This stuff is amazing

Dany's popularity and D&D's fascination with her is def one of the more annoying parts of the show now.

This comparison perfectly illustrates why the average American viewer has ruined GoT. The complexity of the characters and their motivations is lost on the masses.

Wow...
It’s peiple like you and Cotton who brought about an end to the reader threads and pissed off all of the Hodors.

I’ve read all of the books and understand the complexity of the characters just fine. Theon is a terrible person and deserves his fate. Your problem is you act like anyone who doesn’t agree with our opinion is ignorant, when you are actually the ignorant one incapable of seeing another’s point of view as valid

Theon GreyJoy deserves to die with hot sword up his bung hole. He got his best friend and his mom killed bc his daddy didn’t love him. Roose Bolton would have never made the move against Rob had he not held Winterfell with Ramsey. Rob would have won the clash of kings and marched his happy arse through King’s Landing putting a sword through Joffrey’s face instead of the bitch drinking poison.

Kidnapping a child from its home doesn't have to be unique to be meaningful and impactful. What does that even mean, unique? Murder isn't unique either. Does it cease to have meaning?

He had his dick cut off. So, I’m going to cut him a break.

re: Pick your side: Theon Greyjoy deserves redemption / doesn’t deserve redemption
I really want Theon to get redemption. The show touches on it but he has suffered so much and really had to make an impossible choice. Yes he made mistakes but I understand what led him to them. He is also much more contrite in the book wishing he had died with Robb, taking Jayne Poole to Stannis knowing it likely means his own death. I would like to see Theon become Sansas sworn sword or do something to redeem himself fighting with the Starks in the novel. Stannis will have no choice but to take his head though. Only way I see him living is if Mel glamours him like Mance.

If Rob Stark had listened to good counsel he would have never sent Theon home, Theon would have never been torn, Theon would have never turned, and The Red Wedding would have never happened (different bit of counsel but equally right and his ignoring it was equally tragic).

But Theon did turn into a pos. He’s trying to turn back but he’s no longer Theon. He’s still Reek. He can’t ever make good for what he did but he can do something positive.

It's interesting how people debate whether Theon has been punished enough for his actions while Jaime, who has done some of the most despicable things in the series, is a fan favorite

Yeah. I don’t get the hate either versus Jamie or the hound. I’m guessing Theon dies saving Yara or doing something heroic.
