So is Mance essentially dead at the hands of Ramsay or is there any reasonable chance he might survive? And since Theon is no longer there and probs dies at Stannis' Battle of Ice (depending on what theories your subscribe to), will we ever see Ramsay in a POV again? Whose would you think?

(TWOW spoilers)

Sadly, I think Ramsay was telling the truth about Mance being in a cage covered in a cloak made of the spearwives’ skin. The latter were seen helping Theon and Jeyne escape, and last we saw Mance, he was surrounded in the Great Hall. I hope he’ll survive for at least a little while longer, though, because I want his shenanigans regarding the crypts to pay off somehow. 

I don’t think Theon will die at the Battle of Ice. The birds being clearly possessed by Bran and Bloodraven were very very excited about getting Theon to the local weirwood. My theory is that Bloodraven wants Theon alive because he can challenge Bloodraven’s rogue protege Euron for the rule of the Iron Islands. And Bran’s a sweet kid more likely to pity Theon than want him dead; Theon described Bran’s face in the Winterfell heart tree as “sad,” and both then and as a bird, Bran keeps calling Theon’s name. So I imagine that Stannis is about to get his mind blown as the tree talks to him, and that Theon will be our POV on his abuser’s downfall.

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
