demiurgic: ([misc] mailbox)
So, I have this one friend. I don't tend to spend all that much time around her, because she's kind of neurotic and self-centered after a while she starts to drive me up the wall. But, overall, I didn't think she was so bad. Lately, though, she's starting to freak me out a little.

Every week, I head to the apartment she shares with a really good friend of mine to hang out and watch Game of Thrones. Aside from the fact that she really likes to tear into some of the female characters, this arrangement has been more or less enjoyable. She's not caught up on all the books yet, but just recently finished the fourth (after a long bout of complaining about how boring it was because all her favorite characters weren't in it -- when they introduce a handful of really cool characters you could easily become interested in!). So, she knows what happens in the life of Theon Greyjoy.

Summary that is as spoiler-free as I can make it: Theon is torn between to worlds, really wants to be a part of at least one of them, and so he makes a lot of really bad decisions to try and gain acceptance. He does some questionable things, and then lets people believe he does even worse things, but eventually, he falls into the hands of a truly sadistic character who beats and maims and tortures him into a dissociative break. (Said sadist is a Bolton. Boltons like to flay people. Sadist likes this more than the average Bolton.)

Last night's episode dealt with Theon's first Really Bad Decision. My friend gets so angry and says "he deserves what happens to him".

.... a little freaked out, now.

Incidentally, not even Robb would have wanted that. Even Catelyn is repulsed.
