ramsay bolton + the battle of the bastards
Fucking sexy Ramsay
“You don’t have the men, you don’t have the horses. And you don’t have Winterfell.”
The Boltons have always been as cruel as they are cunning, but this one seems a beast in human skin.
“You don’t have to be here.”
“Yes I do.”
As fucking hot as Ramsay flinging arrows at Jon IS, it’s complete and utter BULLSHIT.
Number one: Ramsay would NOT have wasted his shot on a dying giant, he IS NOT THAT STUPID. Ramsay is notorious for being cunning and devious. He would have taken his clear shot at Jon while he was distracted, honorable fight be damned.
Number two: After the initial shot that Jon blocked with a shield, he would NOT have kept shooting. Ramsay is a scrapper who hates to lose, who is too proud and stubborn to go down without a fight. After it was clear the bow was not a good choice, he would have tossed it and gone with his sword because it would have been his best chance at winning against a battle weakened Jon Snow.
Number Three: He would NOT have just lain there and let himself get beat to a pulp. I don’t care if he knew he’d lost or not, I refuse to believe he would just lay down and give in.
Number Four: WHY THE FUCK IS EVERYONE SO ON ABOUT WINTERFELL AS SOME SORT OF UNBREAKABLE FORTRESS?? IT LITERALLY HAS A WEAK-ASS WOODEN DOOR AND THAT’S ALL! THE DREADFORT AT LEAST HAD A PORTCULLIS!!!
Seriously, fuck this cop out of a character arc cutoff for the sake of moving the plot along too quickly.
This, and he would not have lost the BotB to begin with. He’s too cunning and smart to not think of the fact that hm, there might be reinforcements coming in at some point. 🙄
