I forgot about this moment, from Season 1. It doesn’t feel like Theon was pretending or lying at the time. Whatever he feels about the other Starks, the bond with Robb at least seems genuine, or at least it seems like Theon himself believed that it was genuine. Hmmm, maybe I’ve been too hard on Robb for trusting Theon. He couldn’t have known that Theon’s daddy issues would go that deep. Well, if your father is the tight-ass Balon Greyjoy instead of the gentle, noble Ned Stark, you might have major daddy issues too!
