Episode 207 – A Man Without Honor
Aired May 13th, 2012
9 PM, HBO
What the hell do you mean HBO – two episodes left this season? Nooo! (Unless you can promise me Breaking Bad
comes back early, then fine – as long as I have some dark drama to distract me from my life. Ha ha! It's sad because it's true.) Anyhoo, I can't help but think the title of this episode, probably referring to Jamie, Joffrey, Xaro, and Theon all, is really owned by the sad sack of pathetic shit that Theon is right now. He's in over his head, and he refuses to acknowledge it. He so wants to impress the father who gave him away so long ago that he's declared war on the family that raised him, and there's no way this can end well. Unlike Joffrey, who seems to wallow and delight in his own crapulence (thank you, Mr. Burns), Theon looks pained. Not enough to stop, mind you. He's repeatedly slamming his own scrotum in a car door, because goddamn it, if this doesn't get him his own Jackass
style reality show, nothing will. Or, as the case may be here, the love and respect of his father. But I kind of prefer my own scrotum/car door analogy, because somehow it's less sad.
