    I believe there has been more than one messiah through the course of history. And I think Theon is hanging from an "X" for a reason.

    Of course, there is always," He's not the Messiah! He's just a naughty boy!"

    did it seem a little too easy for Theon's sister to want to go save him..."because he is your son", after all they went through?

    I do, however, look forward to both her and Arya/Sandor, kicking some a$$ going forward.

    The scene with Tywin/Tyrion was great once again. You get the feeling Twyin does have some underlying respect for his son's intelligence, even if always putting him down (no pun intended).

    Clearly Tywin has some grudging respect for him. Plus there was what must count as a warm and tender moment for him: "I wanted to kill you the moment you were born. But I didn't!"

    I think Aya(?), while tormenting Theon with that crazy Greyjoy sense of humor, still sees him as her brother. You get a better sense of that in the books. Also Balon basically wrote Theon off the minute he had to surrender him to the Starks. So no skin off his back there. The fact that his son can no longer further the bloodline...well, he has no purpose.

    I wonder if some of it is a womans perspective too? Like, the manhood thing doesn't bother her because women aren't really looked upon as stewards of the family and such...so she only sees him trying to redeem himself to the family instead of lineage to the family name. That and she CLEARLY doesn't mind Theon's other appendages.

    I am eagerly awaiting the inevitable confrontation of the two forces of fire: Daenerys, her vastly growing army and her dragons vs. Melisandre et al and their fire god.

    Also seemingly inevitable is the reuniting of Jon Snow and Ygritte and the consolidation of the many powers in the North to meet the immediate threat of the White Walkers.

    Next season is gonna be the start of the playoffs in this series.

    Read a review earlier where the guy(who hadn't read the books) said that he felt the War of the Kings was essentially a preface to the REAL story. He might have something there.
