With Joffrey out of the way, there’s now little argument among fans that Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon) is the most despicable character on Game of Thrones. So will the Bastard of Bolton be going the way of good King Joffrey anytime soon? Read on to find out!

Ramsay is truly awful, but before anything bad happens to him, he’s actually going to be rewarded for his terrible behavior. In the books, Ramsay uses Theon to lure the Ironborn out of Moat Cailin, their last stronghold in the North, by promising them that no harm will come to them if they surrender willingly. They do, and Ramsay has them all flayed alive. After this, Roose legitimizes Ramsay, making him Ramsay Bolton rather than Ramsay Snow.

So Ramsay Bolton seems like a bigger target than Ramsay Snow, for sure, so somebody must be coming for him, right? Unfortunately... no. Ramsay is still alive as of A Dance with Dragons, the most recent book in the series, and he’s still awful. We’re holding out hope that Theon/Reek will take revenge on him eventually. Flayed fingers crossed!
