Who is torturing Theon Greyjoy and why?
He comes out of no where and I haven't read the books. He just keeps torturing him and giving hints on who he is...
It's worth noting that this happens much the same way in the books; we don't fully know what's happening until somewhat later, so it should be considered as part of the plot and not something that you're supposed to know right now.
Aaargh. If you don't know who he is, maybe it's because you are _not supposed_ to know yet! How about you relax, watch the show, and find out in due time? Why the need for spoilers? :(
And now, by reading the answers below, you've spoiled yourself of a surprise. Well done!
Question is, why do they spend so much air time showing this elaborate torture? Enough already.
@TLP - I would say the answer is two fold. Theon has nothing to do until much much later, so it's a way to keep him on screen. And right now Theon is one of the most hated characters in the show, second only to Joffs. The reaction of his haters has been interestingly polarized.
Answer in spoiler:
Roose Bolton's bastard, Ramsay. Their sigil is the flayed man.
I don't know his name in english but in french it is "Schlingue", which could be translated by "Stinky" or "Smelly", does it help you remember his name ?
