He murdered her friend who was just unlucky enough to witness Joffrey's humiliation.

An adult who murders a child, her friend. Cut and dried.

I have a hard time understanding people who don't get this. I mean even if we somehow ignore the "He is a child killer" thing, avenging a murdered friend is a pretty solid motive for most people for most of history.

Also remember how traumatic the last year or so has been for her. She has turned herself into who she thinks she needs to be to survive, and that person has a very strict (though still somewhat childlike) sense of right and wrong and who deserves life and death.

For myself, I'd forgotten that he killed her friend and was wondering why she hated him so much. I've been wanting to re-watch season 1, but my brother has the discs.

I've watched every episode and I have no idea who Roose Bolton is. :/

He is the guy who Arya was a cupbearer to when she was at Harrenhal. He married one of Frey's grand-daughters (I can't remember if that fact made it on to the screen).

His house is much better set up in the books, as is the Frey house. The show replaced his establishment in Clash of Kings with Arya serving Tywin.

Well that clears it right up.

No way I can remember every character - or character name or place name - that's been flashed past our eyes over 3 years.

Arya wasn't Bolton's cupbearer on the show anyway; that's only in the books.

Bolton is one of Robb's lieutenants. He's had a number of small appearances, but like DalekJim says, the show hasn't made him particularly memorable. He's the one who agreed to release Jaime from Harrenhal in exchange for Jaime telling Tywin that Bolton had nothing to do with his hand being cut off.

Oh, yes, It was Tywin on the TV series. I keep mixing the books up with what is on TV. Can you remember when Roose Bolton first appeared in the TV series?

I do remember that at one point in the TV series one of the characters, can't remember who, mentioned that the flayed man is Bolton's sigil.

You can use the GOT wiki if you need a reminder about who is who. Great thing about that site is that is only has spoilers up the newest aired episode.

I seem to remember him looking a bit put out that Robb wanted to talk to Florence Bonesaw instead of him. Probably not his first appearance, though.
