Theon Greyjoy "You may be right. But I've gone too far to pretend to be anything else."
Game of Thrones, Game of Thrones 2×10 – Valar Morghulis, Game of Thrones Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) Maester Luwin (Donald Sumpter)
I will kill that man. I don’t care how many arrows they feather me with, how many spears they run through me, I will kill that horn-blowing cunt before I fall. They want you to know you’re surrounded. I know I’m surrounded. I know that because I stood on the battlements and saw I was surrounded. They don’t want you to sleep. They want to sap your spirit before Thank you, wise bald man. Thank you for explaining siege tactics to me. No word from my father? No. Send more ravens. You killed all the ravens. The first time I saw Winterfell The first time I saw Winterfell, it looked like something that had been here for thousands of years and would be here for thousands of years after I was dead. I saw it and I thought, “of course Ned Stark crushed our rebellion and killed my brothers. We never stood a chance against a man who lives here.” Lord Stark went out of his way to make it your home. Yes, my captors were so very kind to me. You love reminding me of that. Everyone in this frozen pile of shit has always loved reminding me of that. You know what it’s like to be told how lucky you are to be someone’s prisoner? To be told how much you owe them? And then to go back home to your real father I will kill that man. I swear it to the Drowned God, the Old Gods, the New Gods, to every fucking God in every fucking heaven, I will kill that man. Theon, listen to me. I serve Winterfell. Now Winterfell is yours. I’m bound by oath to serve you. And what’s your counsel, trusted friend? Run. 500 Northmen wait outside the walls. You have 20 men. You can’t win. Wait for nightfall and run. There’s nowhere to run. I’d never make it back to the Iron Islands. And even if I did, even if by some miracle I slipped through the lines and made it home, I’d be a coward. The Greyjoy who ran. The shame of the family. Don’t go home. Join the Night’s Watch. Once a man has taken the Black he’s beyond reach of the law. All his past crimes are forgiven. I won’t make it to the Wall. I won’t make it 10 feet past the Winterfell gates. There are ways. Hidden passageways built so the Lords of Winterfell could escape. The road will be dangerous. But with a little luck the Night’s Watch is an ancient, honorable order. You’ll have opportunities there. The opportunity for Jon Snow to cut my throat in my sleep. The opportunity to make amends for what you’ve done. I’ve done a lot, haven’t I? Things I never imagined myself doing. I’ve known you many years, Theon Greyjoy. You’re not the man you’re pretending to be. Not yet. You may be right. But I’ve gone too far to pretend to be anything else.
We want to work for you
