Fans of the Game of Thrones books have a name for almost every important event and theory spawned by the series. Past seasons of the show included the Red and Purple Weddings, and now season six has shown us the beginning of The Tower of Joy and most recently, The Pink Letter.
For those who haven’t read the books, The Pink Letter is the letter sent to Jon Snow by Ramsay Bolton in episode four, encouraging Snow to “come and see” what awaits him at Winterfell. It got its name from the smudge of pink wax used to seal the letter in the books, which has led some readers to suspect it’s not from Ramsay at all.
According to these theorists, Ramsay Bolton typically sends pieces of flayed skin with his letters and writes them in the blood of his enemies. Typical Ramsay! And while the wording in the letter is certainly aggressive and violent enough to come from Ramsay, there’s just something suspicious about it. Did someone else write the Pink Letter? And if so, who?
That’s one question no one has had a good answer to… up until last week’s episode of Game of Thrones came out. Now there’s a new theory that explains who wrote it, and why.
