    The Actor Who Plays Ramsay Bolton Weighed In On Last Night's Insane Episode

    Somehow, Ramsay has managed to get even worse.

    One of the most disturbing moments from last night's Game of Thrones was, of course, courtesy of Ramsay Bolton — and you should stop reading now unless you want an onslaught of ~spoilers~.

    Bolton, arguably the most hated person on the show at the moment, killed his father, stepmother, and little brother in yesterday's episode.

    And now Iwan Rheon, the man who brings Ramsay to life each week, recently chatted with Entertainment Weekly about his character's latest gruesome act.

    “It shows a level of ambition we’ve not yet seen,” Rheon said, referring to Bolton's unquenchable thirst for power.

    He later added, "His problem solving is quite basic. It’s very similar to how a lot of totalitarian dictators solve their problems."

    Rheon also alluded to the fact that one of the biggest reasons for Ramsay's actions in the most recent episode stem from his uncertain place in the family.

    But ultimately, Rheon says that Bolton killing his father wasn't "entirely without emotional cost either."

    Guess we'll have to tune in next week to see what the repercussions of Ramsay's incredibly heinous crimes will be.
