** SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading if you have not yet seen Season Six, Episode Seven of “Game Of Thrones” titled “Broken Man”**
(PCM) Leave it to the super savvy and ridiculously dedicated fans of the HBO series “Game Of Thrones” to solve one of this past week’s biggest mysteries and reach a pretty solid conclusion about just who was the recipient of that mysterious letter written by Sansa Stark and what details it included.
The Game Of Thrones subreddit r/GameOfThrones is quite the happening destination after each episode, however after “Broken Man” aired, there was an explosion of activity with fans desperate to find out just what and to whom Sansa was writing. We now have an answer thanks to one fan who is quite the Photoshop guru and was able to zoom in on a screen shot of the image, flip it around, enhance it and then with the help of other fans, fill in the blanks to complete the note.

The note reads, “…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 … rewarded.”
We are led to the conclusion that the note is intended for Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, as Sansa initially rejected his assistance earlier this season due to the fact that he was responsible for “selling” her off to the horrific and sadistic Ramsey Bolton. Sansa and her brother Jon Snow have been trying to rally assistance from the houses of the North to fight beside them and take back their home of Winterfell from the Bolton’s command and save their younger brother Rickon, who has been taken prisoner by Ramsey.
It is also possible that Sansa’s letter could be bypassing “Littlefinger” all together and she may be writing directly to his stepson, Sweetrobin, the heir of the Vale directly to request his support. Redditor CreepyPancakes says, “Sansa does not want to be beholden to Littlefinger, but she needs the Vale. And Sweetrobin is the only other character who can grant her those troops. By going around Littlefinger, she accomplishes her goal, without giving him leverage over her in the future. And she successfully undermines his position of authority in the process.”
