Spoiler alert for Game of Thrones season 6, episode 9, "Battle of the Bastards." Duh.

Everyone saw Rickon Stark's death coming, everyone except Jon Snow. But at the moment of the trueborn Stark's demise, you'd be forgiven for becoming an amateur expert in survival tactics. Rickon sprints from Ramsay's killing arrow in a straight line, refusing to heed your calls to the TV screen to "serpentine! serpentine!!"

The young actor who plays Rickon, Art Parkinson, felt the same way. He tweeted an excellent double entendre.
