However, he breaks his promise when he executes Ser Rodrik so he would not lose men's respect after he is insulted. At night, Osha seduces Theon to gain her freedom. This gives time for Brann and Hordor to escape in the night with her. Down south, Robb Stark learns of the capture of Winterfell and Theon's betrayal and decides to head back in order to reclaim his castle. He changes his mind when Lord Roose Bolton volunteers to head back in this place so he would not lose all the progress he has made against the Lannisters.
