***Spoiler Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones through Season 6, Episode 7, including book discussion.Spoilers***
In Sunday night’s “The Broken Man,” after traveling from House to House with her brother Jon and Ser Davos requesting aid to take back Winterfell, Sansa realized she had to do more.
We knew believed she was requesting aid from either Littlefinger or — as he’d suggested — possibly from her mother’s uncle, Brynden aka the Blackfish Tully, and a reddit user (CreepyPancakes, because of course) has craftily done the required dirty work , refined with the help of a few fellow redditors, to confirm our thoughts:
With updated corrections, the legible parts of the message to Littlefinger reads thusly:
[…] 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.”
At this point, the Starks need all the help they can get, so we really can’t blame Sansa for putting away her anger to request the help. Smarmy dick though he is, I do believe somewhere deep down, Baelish does care for Sansa (however creepy, with or without pancakes). And though he’s always got his own motives, I think he’ll do right by her. DON’T LET US DOWN, GILLEN.
Oh and, thanks, Mr. Pancakes!
