“Game of Thrones” season 6 is now on its final 3 episodes and after “The Broken Man,” the Stark siblings have gathered all the northern houses they can to face Ramsay Bolton. Sadly, the meager numbers of men are not even close to what they’d hope for. Desperate, she sends a letter and seals it with the sigil of House Stark.


Who could she possibly ask for help that also has the men she needs to even out the odds? The guys at Reddit analyzed the contents of her letter and revealed the recipient to be Lord Petyr Baelish.

The legible parts of Sansa Stark’s letter read: “-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 rewarded.” It seems that in her desperation, she reconsidered Littlefinger’s offer to help in their fight against the Boltons.

During their last meeting earlier in “Game of Thrones” season 6, Baelish offered to Knights of the Vale to her in order to make amends for abandoning her to the Boltons. Sansa however, confident that the Stark name will get her the army she needs, refused and even threatened to have him killed.

What are the chances that the Knights of the Vale are still encamped in Moat Cailin? Not great, but since Littlefinger was not shown to have returned to the Eyrie, it is still possible they are still within the fortress.

Will Baelish answer Sansa Stark’s call? Possibly seeing that he is an opportunist he will likely commit the Vale forces. The last line of the letter also has an ominous ring to it considering that she knows that she reminds him of his mother, a person Petyr Baelish still loves.

Will the Knights of the Vale come to their aid come BastardBowl? Catch the final three episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ every Sunday only on HBO.
