  •  They've been doing some time-shifting of events (3+ / 0-)

    As a concession to the logistics of creating a TV show.  Things that occur in a later book may be moved to seasons that theoretically correspond to an earlier book.

    I have my suspicions that some things which seem to be getting disproportionate screen time now are being show because Martin told the producers that they are necessary to set up things that occur in books yet to be published/written.

    In the case of Theon, I do not believe the intent is to cater to a torture fetish.  I think the intent is to manipulate the audience into regretting any wishes that bad things would happen to Theon.  It's supposed to be as shocking and contrary to expectations as Ned Stark losing his head.

    •  It may also be a commentary on torture itself (0+ / 0-)

      ... and not a positive one, either.
