Warning: There be Game of Thrones spoilers here.
In the most recent episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Sansa and Jon’s crusade to take the North back from the Boltons reached more than a few obstacles, with their army only on the receiving end of a small number of soldiers from the House of Mormont (headed by everyone’s new favorite Thrones character), and the refusal from other houses to support them. While Jon and Davos planned on marching on Winterfell with the army that they have now, Sansa was seen writing a letter of unknown content, to an unknown recipent as well, likely asking for aid.
I think it’s fairly clear that she was sending it to Petyr Baelish a.k.a. Littlefinger, with the Knights of the Vale open to supporting the Starks in their battle, even despite the character’s betrayal of Sansa last season.
Thanks to the hard work of Redditor CreepyPancakes now as well, it looks like we at least know the majority of what Sansa’s letter said, confirming the above theory:
“[…] you promised to protect me. Now you have a chance to fulfill your promise. […] Knights of the Vale are under your command. Ride north for Winterfell. Lend us your aid and I shall see to it that you are [well/properly] rewarded.”
With the next episode of the series titled “No One” (clearly in reference to Arya and her bloody gut) and episode nine rumored to be titled “Battle of Bastards,” I think it’s safe to say that in this coming episode we’ll see Littlefinger happily fulfill Sansa’s request, once again positioning himself in a strategic seat of power and surrounded by those who can only aid him in his villainous plans.
Luckily though, it looks like his plans may benefit some of the show’s heroes this time around, with the Knights of the Vale finally joining the fray, and likely going to leave a high number of Bolton bodies in their wake.
Game of Thrones airs every Sunday night on HBO.
