Where we stand now, zeroing in on the end of Season 5, Ramsay Bolton has replaced Joffrey Baratheon as the Game of Thrones character that most viewers want to see die a slow, painful, awful death. He’s earned it, many times over, for crimes ranging from being a putz to, uh, actual violent, horrible crimes. Think about it this way: Theon was nipping at Joffrey’s heels in the Die Die I Hate You Die power rankings, and Ramsay is so terrible that it’s actually making Theon a tiny bit of a sympathetic character. That’s almost impressive.
And it turns out viewers aren’t the only ones who want to see Ramsay died a violent death. Iwan Rheon, the actor who plays him on the show, feels the same way. After saying there was “nothing redeemable” about the character, and discussing how difficult it was to film the wedding night assault on Sansa, he had this to say about his character’s potential, inevitable death:
“It could happen at any time, that’s the nature of the show – no one’s really safe.
“That said, I’ve just bought a flat in London so I hope that day doesn’t come too soon,” he laughs.
“But that day is definitely coming, no mistake about it – and I hope that when it does it’s epically nasty, and preferably dragon-related.”
As much as seeing him get toasted by a dragon would be cathartic and fun, I think it might be too good for him. I mean, if you have to die, getting toasted by a dragon is actually kind of badass. I’d prefer to see him go out in a much more embarrassing, shameful manner. The Tywin Lannister special, if you will. Like maybe he eats some bad oysters and gets a case of food poisoning so intense that he defecates out his cold, black heart. That would be okay. Feel free to use that one, Game of Thrones people. My gift to you.
