All of the men in this show are so pretty it hurts. Except for Theon. He's the ugly duckling.
But his bodayyyy and his dick. Plus he looks okay in motion from the right angles usually. He just isn't very photogenic. His face is pretty weird I guess. And he could pummel someone with his chin. But I just can't help but want to screw him. It's like a you're odd looking yet somehow still attractive kind of attraction.
I think we're about at the same place, Em. I've felt sorry for Theon since A Clash of Kings, and so seeing him the way he is in A Dance with Dragons is rough. I hope he can find a way to redeem himself; what I'm really, really waiting for is for Jon to finally confront the people who destroyed his family whilst he watched the wall. We see a bit of it with Janos, and
I think had he not played a role in Ned's death, Jon wouldn't have executed him.
Especially if Robb's letter ever comes into play, it'll be interesting to see the internal conflict as he struggles with staying Lord Commander or becoming the King in the North. I personally hope the Wall falls at some point and he's left with no option but to choose the latter - the potential there is just amazing, and I think Jon would be a far, far better King than Robb ever was.
Watching season one of GoT again, just got it on DVD. In every scene with Ned, I'm always studying him - from the little facial tics and sometimes mysterious words, I get the feeling he knows a lot more than we do even now. Also, I'm guessing he was a Warg, right? Jon's one too so it must have been inherited from Ned.

I don't think Ned realized that he was a warg. The only reason his children found out was through their wolves, and even then, the only two to act on their abilities are Arya and Bran. Jon just kind of accepts it and never really does anything with it. I wonder if Sansa is. That'd be cool to see.
But basically if this set side account is accurate, it makes it highly likely that Iwan Rheon is indeed playing Ramsay Bolton. Honestly, this show exclusive arc has the potential to be brilliant. And I cannot wait. Considering season 2 did things differently from the book especially regarding Theon, it leaves open a lot of possibilities. I can already see Theon going from most hated character to most sympathetic during season 3. Can it be March 31st already?
Honestly I'm a wee bit worried about Theon in season three. I understand that they have to have him do something because he's now a major character and all, but I don't want them to totally go off track and have him doing the stuff that he's supposed to be doing in the ADwD season.
So, finished them all up to now. Here's a mess of my thoughts.
That last Jon chapter made me cry, I didn't see it coming at all. I think he'll survive though, and flee the Wall to Stannis. This is where he'll come into contact with the Northern bannermen after Stannis has won the Battle of Winterfell and it'll be revealed one of them has been trusted with Robb's final testament; Jon will become Jon Stark (by Robb's declaration and not a Southron play-king, so he won't deny it as he did with Stannis) and the new King In The North.
The horn that Euron found is probably the Horn of Jormamund, because it was stated in quite a foreshadowing way near the end that the horn Mance had wasn't really it, and Jormamund's obviously has real power. I think after Slaver's Bay, Victarion will be told by Maquarro of the Others and hear the Wall is under attack. He'll go to help and blow the Horn to announce his coming (as he does heading towards Slaver's Bay in the chapter from TWoW GRRM read) and inadvertently bring down the Wall/it's sorcery. He'll also have Daenarys with him, so she'll be at the Wall (and so the House of the Undying bits from the books and show will be fufilled.) Not sure what'll happen then, but I just have a feeling.
Aegon Targaryen is actually the last Blackfyre, posing as a Targaryen. Connington doesn't know this, but the leaders of the Golden Company do - when founded, their founder said they'd only ever break a contract to put a Blackfyre on the Iron Throne. And suddenly when Aegon comes about, they break a contract and go to put him on the Iron Throne. I also notice that Connington's always comparing him to Rhaegar and noting 'his violet eyes are paler' and such, so that's foreshadowing difference. I don't think Aegon himself knows he's Blackfyre, but Varys definitely does.
Drogo will come back. Not only does the House of the Undying in S2 of GoT suggest this, but so does Daenarys' last chapters in ADwD - her 'moon blood' runs thicker down her thighs than ever before, and it's been months since it happened. The Maegi from AGoT told her that Drogo would be as he was when 'her womb quickened once more,' and it's obvious Daario got her pregnant. She loses the baby after the affair with Drogan in the Pit, but it seems she can get pregnant once more. I think this is foretelling Drogo's return, somehow.
Ser Robert Strong is obviously FrankenGregor, but that's pretty obvious.
Anyway, back to Aegon. I think Jon Snow is the real Aegon Targaryen. When Daenarys sees Rhaegar with a woman in the House of the Undying, that isn't Elia. It's Lysanna. She bears a child for Rhaegar, who says his will be the Song of Ice and Fire (because he knows Fire is Targaryen, Ice is Stark.) Rhaegar calls him Aegon for the Conqueror even though Elia has borne him an Aegon already; he figures that being half-brothers, it does not matter if they have the same name. Anyway, the uprising happens. Gregor Clegane kills Elia's Aegon. Meanwhile, Ned and Howland Reed head to the Tower of Joy to face down Arthur Dayne and the Kingsguard.
Remember that Rhaegar's gone at this point, so why would the Kingsguard be there when it's only Lysanna inside with her child? Because the child is Rhaegar's son. Ned and Reed manage to best Dayne and the Kingsguard. This is interesting; Dayne's regarded as legendary, the best fighter to ever live. I don't think Ned is nearly as good as him, and Reed's been described as a small man. But I think Reed is a Warg, and he warged Dayne and thus let Ned win the fight. I think Reed's still got Dayne imprisoned somewhere in his castle, which is why we haven't seen anything of Reed yet even though Rickon went there with Osha books ago.
Anyway, back to the Tower of Joy. Ned goes in, finds Lysanna dead in childbirth. He sees her Aegon (TPTWP) and realises what has happened, and takes her out. He then adopts the boy as his bastard son and calls him Jon. We'll find out the truth of this when Bran greenseers the events at the Tower of Joy.
Syrio Forell is Jaquen H'gar is the Kindly Man. Just so.
Oh, and Daenarys is currently at Valyria, an island inaccessible by ships after the Doom. She'll find stuff there, important stuff.
And the Maesters are an Illuminati-esque order who will be revealed to be controlling everything, steering Westeros in a direction that serves their ends. I think deep inside the Citadel, it'll be super-advanced with electricity, automobiles and all that. They're not sharing any of it with the rest of the world because with industrialisation becomes political reform (every autocracy in real-world history has ended not long after industrialisation) and the system of Kings and Lords lets them control affairs much easier.
Finally, Patchface. In the whole series, nothing frightens me more than Patchface. Every time he speaks I'm chilled. Mellisandre's afraid of him, seeing blood and skulls about him in her flames. One of his songs near the end of ADwD unnerves me:
"I will lead it! We will march into the sea and out again. Under the waves we will ride seahorses, and mermaids will blow seashells to announce our coming!"
I read that as: "We will die and rise again as wights. We will ride dead horses. We will blow the horn of Jormamund" and to put his first line last: "I am the Great Other."
I think Patchface will blow the Horn that Jon gave to Sam way back in ACoK, and it'll bring down the Wall. His true identity will be revealed. The guy terrifies me.

Oh dear... nothing at all like I pictured him. The casting department has really fucked up on this one. Of course, I will wait to see him in full costume and character before making a final judgment. But right now, it's an lolno.
