rickon was a scared child, who had probably (most definitely) tortured by ramsay and who hadn’t seen any of his family in years. when ramsay told him to run in a straight line, that’s what he did. because that’s what scared children always do when they see someone comforting and familiar. rickon stark was a scared boy who had known almost nothing but war and heartache, so when the chance at being with family again comes up, he takes it and doesn’t think otherwise. rickon stark just wanted to see his brothers again, his sisters again but that opportunity was torn from him right as it was in reach. rickon stark suffered the most tragic fate of any of the characters who died before him.
