| Finally we get to talk about Ramsay in here without using spoiler tags on his name. |
I haven't read the books, but I figured out who/what Ramsay was several episodes prior to the finale.
I didn't know his name was Ramsay of course, but I knew it was a Bolton.
the problem with most of the TV audience is that they're not very observant of details.
to anyone who was actually paying attention, the show made it very clear that Bolton's were represented by a flayed man. that's their banner symbol; a little man tied to a stake waiting to be flayed alive.
now it's very subtle but the actor who plays Roose has a beautifully designed leather tunic which includes an embossed image of a flayed man right on the chest below the neck line.
it's RIGHT there yet so many people failed to make the connection.
I didn't know his name was Ramsay and I didn't know he was Roose Bolton's son, but it was easy to figure out that Theon was being tortured by the Bolton's. couple this knowledge with the fact that Roose openly despised Robb AND decided to release Jamie Lannister even though the Lannister's were supposedly his enemy.
TV watchers were actually given several major clues leading up to the Red Wedding... if they were willing to realize it.
oh well, at least everyone can be friends in real life
