Just think, he could do that 27 more times if you keep cutting the fingers and thumbs off at the knuckles. I don't recall Theon really doing anything evil to the Bolton's, if anything...

Spoiler:
he did the family a huge favor by sacking Winterfell and killing most what was left of the Stark loyalists. Ramsey Snow is just one sick bastard.

Decent episode. Helped calm me down a bit after the game. Melisandre is creepy as hell.
Spoiler:

Most of the focus was on the wedding, which is to be expected. Joffrey and Cersei were in full ******* mode.

So now we get to wait 2 weeks for another episode. So glad it's being pushed off for Liberace. :roll:

Does not being a book reader explain why...

Spoiler:
Jon Snow had a hell of a time killing one of the walkers and then had to burn him, but dopey Tarly sticks one in the shoulder blade and it disintegrates. Do the books evetually explain this? Might the show explain it?

I thought that in the book the dagger disintegrated... But since it clearly didn't here... Yeah, idiot.

I believe in the books, both obsidian and dragon glass were used, so you can call it what ever the hell you want.

Major spoiler!

Spoiler:
I feel like they spoiled the Red and Purple wedding by having her announce who the leeches represented. In the books, I don't recall her naming names.


Also, leeches don't cause pain, they secrete a chemical that numbs the area they are "leeching". Don't know why Gendry acted like it hurt.

Cause it's a fantasy world and those are Westeros Leeches that lack the chemical that our world's leeches possess.... :D :thumb:

Moar spoilerz!
Spoiler:
It's been awhile since I read the book now, but from some comments I read last night, supposedly in the book he named Balon and Jofferey and then after a long pause named Robb. I don't know that people will necessarily know when the others will die, but after the Red Wedding, people are going to know the others are likely doomed as well.
