The sadistic and wicked Ramsay Bolton started Game of Thrones Season 6 in the best way he knows how. He assumes his father’s position as Warden of the North after treacherously stabbing him, feeds his mother and brother to hounds and declares war against Jon Snow and Sansa Stark with Rickon held captive. In sum, Ramsay has been a very bad boy, and even actor Iwan Rheon agrees that he is bound to get the punishment he deserves soon.
During a guest appearance on ITV’s This Morning, Rheon tells hosts Philipp Schofield and Holly Willoughby that he thinks Ramsay is going to get the boot.
“I think he’s gotta go,” says Rheon. “He deserves it.”
Rheon first played The Bastard of Bolton in Game of Thrones Season 3. Four seasons later, he has become the most hated character on TV. Despite his newfound title, the 31-year-old Welshman finds Ramsay “a very interesting character” and understands that there are reasons as to why he is such a foul being.
According to Winter is Coming, Rheon is not upset by the possibility of his character getting killed by the end of Game of Thrones Season 6. As a matter of fact, he would like to request a particular way for him to die.
“I’d quite like a dragon-related death in some brutal dragon encounter, fighting a dragon and losing,” he shares. It seems unlikely, however, for Rheon to get his wish. It is predicted that Ramsay will die at the hands of Sansa or Jon. These two are currently rallying up their army to storm Winterfell and take back what is rightfully theirs. But they are predictable choices, and Game of Thrones is not known for being predictable.
Another candidate with the capacity to eliminate Ramsay would be Petyr Baelish. Littlefinger has always wanted to be the Warden of the North, and getting rid of Ramsay would be the first thing on his to-do list. According to TV Guide, it also possible he would kill Rickon, him being Ned Stark’s only remaining male heir that can assume Winterfell’s top post (there’s still Bran, but he’s too busy racing against the White Walkers at the moment).
In the upcoming episode, The Broken Man, it is said that the “North is reminded.”
Game of Thrones Season 6 airs every Sunday on HBO.
