I'm almost 100% sure that they are the 2 orphan kids that Bran sent to that farm as additional workers (remember when he was serving as lord of the manor, and the farmer asked for some help?) They mentioned it again when they came upon the farm.

The word is they were tarred, as per the book, evidently. I freezed it. The left body's arm is torn off.

If he did actually capture the stark kids (and I don't think he did) how stupid it would be to kill them. They would be valuable bargaining chips. Is Theon that stupid? It would make more sense for him to execute anyone who aided their escape.

I went back to that scene; both kids had a piece of an arm missing. I'm totally on board with Robb getting him alive. I'm hoping for a slow, painful death for Theon.

I've been meaning to post this for a while now and I just remembered: The Hound calls Sansa Little Bird; and Cersei always calls her Little Dove.

not sure why that matters. But there it is!

Is this a rhetorical question? Yes he is. They're paying the iron price. I don't think Krackens take hostages.

I wonder if HBO would really show the heads of 2 little boys? They did Ned and Rodrick, but kids would be a little different. So the tarring thing would just be a little extra torture? Or is Theon just afraid to attempt to behead someone again.

Tar is a preservative. It allows you to display your trophy for much longer.

I noticed this too. I'm not sure it has any significance but now you have me wondering.

Well, it was a rhetorical question, but I don't think he's quite that stupid.

I agree with your statement about the Greyjoys not taking hostages, but I don't think ALL of the stupidity is on Theon there. The entire Greyjoy house is stupid in that regard. They're thumbing their nose a huge part of Westerosian warfare. This all plays back into Theon's inner conflict between what he was taught was right while he was living at Winterfel and his desire to be seen as a rightful heir to the Iron Islands' Throne.
