I may have said something similar in a previous review, but if there's one thing that "Game of Thrones" does exceptionally well, it's creating that sense of a downward spiral; that things are about to go from bad to worse. This is true as a description of the entire show, but it's also especially true in individual scenes, such as this episode's opening scene, in which Theon captures Winterfell. If anything could be called a point of no return for Theon, this would have to be it. Even if there is to be some sort of redemptive arc, there's only so much that something like that could accomplish.
