Unhappy Father's Day: The Worst Dads on TV This Season
Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide)
6. Balon Greyjoy ("Game of Thrones")
His son is held hostage for nearly a decade in Winterfell, and instead of welcoming him home with open arms, he makes fun of his clothes, calls him a whore, and essentially shuns him for siding with his captors. Then he gives him a crappy boat and a ridiculous mission, then slaps him across the face. Admittedly, we want to smack Theon most of the time, too, but he's not our flesh and blood.
