That actually sounds very plausible I wouldn't be surprised if that's how it goes down.
So just seen this past sunday's episode; easily one of, if not the best GoT episode so far. The ending really just took it away, but even without that, it was pretty packed with really well portrayed and emotional scenes, starting with Jamie and the Bolton men then Varys' scene; to find out a bit more about his life. I'm really also loving the newly introduced characters from this season, mainly Olenna Tyrell; now there's a woman.
Best episode of GoT so far. It's that good. The episode started good & just get better at every scene. The final 20 minutes were just exceptionnal.
I'm trembling with excitement.
Damn, that girl is epic.
Though I enjoyed the scenes, Theon's storyline still is a bit confusing to me, I'm not sure what is exactly happening to him. If I recall reading previous posts right, this doesn't take part in the books right?
Correct in the books he just gets captured at Winterfell I wont spoil by whom.
Well, if I recall it correctly, there was not a single Theon chapter in Book 3, right?
Anyways, the episode is cool. It was mostly loyal with some good touches like that of Varys' sweet revenge.
Well, it's implied and pretty evident that he goes through a lot. Similar to what is happening in the show, it just isn't shown. Theon actually doesn't make an appearance after the end of the second book until book five. Same with them showing Robb's exploits first person. Cat only ever sees him at Riverrun between his escapades at war. That's also where Jaime is kept prisoner, instead of just some random camp. Hoster Tully isn't dead right away either. Cat has several scenes with him on his deathbed. And the biggest change is the Blackfish thing. In the books, Blackfish is in service to the Eyrie but leaves when Cat leaves and subsequently joins Robb during the war. He should have featured in the first season of the show. Edmure is pretty much the same kind of fuck-up that he's shown to be in the show, but he isn't completely worthless and dense like they make him out to be. I also didn't really picture him that way in the books, he looks too young. He should have been in the first season too, as he was taken prisoner by the Lannisters and is rescued when Robb ambushes Jaime. The cuts to the Riverrun storyline do make sense to me overall, they're pretty dull in comparison to most of the other storylines. It's basically Cat just sitting around moping, and without inner dialogue it's sort of useless to show it faithfully.

Now that you pointed those out
It's not only his dreams, it's a pretty gradual thing. But I will say that it won't be the same since the internal monologue aspect is removed.
