    My wife and I have had this running discussion for the last couple seasons.

    On a show literally filled with characters who are sadistic, power-hungry, bereft of morality and devoid of the concept of the Golden Rule, who gets your nomination for the worst person/character on the show?

    Now that King Joffrey has ceased to exist, my current frontrunner is Ramsay Bolton.

    What say you?

    Ramsay is the clear leader in the clubhouse.

    Cersei. Only because unlike Ramsay, she seems to know right from wrong. Ramsay's just a psycho. Cersei is a calculated psycho.

    Ramsay is clearly the frontrunner...

    I say Ramsay is top of the list.

    Theon is clearly the bitch of the show since losing his ding dong.

    Cersei is awesome. A joy to watch her operate but you get the idea she may be faced with some less than smooth sailing soon.

    Little finger's sheer sacrifice of Sansa (if it is as it seems) puts him on the list for sure.

    Tough choice. Ramsey is a clear psycho and incredibly despicable. Roose is not psychotic, but he's a complete POS who betrayed King Rob and the North as a whole and then hooked up his psychotic bastard with Rob's little sister. Cersei and Little Finger are also clear contenders for the top choice.

    Seems to change with the season. The kingslayer actually turned out to have some morals even though I used to think he was the leader in the despicable department. Yeah Ramsay is scum personified.

    Was having a similar conversation last night. Very few "good" guys on the show.

    That said Ramsay is pretty darned evil.

    Let's not limit the discussion to the living... I rewatched the early seasons before this current one started and found plenty of evil.

    Craster? Ugh.

    Who was the Boltons huntsman - the one who cut off Jamie's hand and brutalized Brienne??? He was a peach.

    But Cersei runs a close second to Ramsay for me. Her cumulative list of evils makes her detestable beyond measurement. One particular one was exposed in Oberin's tale to Tyrion about how Cersei (as a young girl) tortured the little midget baby by pinching his whacker, because she hated him so and blamed his mothers death on him.

    Would have said Joffrey, but Ramsay has clearly surpassed him. Pure evil.

    Of the still living.... I think Cersei. Ramsay is obviously more insane and evil, but it makes me think he has no concept of right and wrong.
    With Cersei currently controlling everything she has more influence and she's using it only to try and further herself. I'll go with her because she's abusing her power and guilty for more deaths than Ramsay.

    You are correct. I was thinking of the book, not the TV show. I guess I need more coffee this morning.

    ...Little Finger is turning out to be pretty darn despicable....he's not as outwardly evil as Ramsay but just as creepy and way more crafty and dangerous....

    Just wait until Jaborrio Makoof is introduced in the show. The character takes everything to a new level.



    Just kidding... I never read the books and made the name Jaborrio Makoof up.
