Season VI51: The Red Woman

➲ Full History

Hearing the distressed howling of Ghost, Davos Seaworth steps out of his chamber at Castle Black to find a bloody Jon Snow lying under a sign that reads “Traitor.”

With the help of Dolorous Edd and a few loyal brothers of the Night’s Watch, the former Lord Commander is carried inside and confirmed dead. Davos sends Edd to retrieve Ghost, while Melisandre is stunned to see Jon’s lifeless body, claiming she saw him fighting at Winterfell in the flames, and Ser Alliser takes command of the Night’s Watch.

“Do you feel like a victor?” – Roose Bolton

Ramsay Bolton

At Winterfell, Ramsay Bolton mourns his dead lover Myranda, promising to avenge her. When Maester Wolkan asks whether to bury or burn the girl, Ramsay chastises him that this is good meat, and to feed her body to the hounds. Roose Bolton allows Ramsay no time to celebrate his victory over Stannis Baratheon, hinting that locating Sansa Stark and producing a son is imperative to Ramsay’s status as his heir.

Having survived their leap from the Winterfell wall, Theon Greyjoy and Sansa flee through the woods, hoping to lose Ramsay’s hunting party. Exhausted and frozen, the pair huddles together under a fallen tree. Before they can freeze to death, they hear the Bolton hounds approaching. Theon fails to lure the soldiers away from Sansa, but as the Bolton men move in to seize her, Brienne of Tarth and Podrick Payne appear on horseback. Pod is knocked on his back during the fight, but saved when Theon drives a sword through the soldier. Having defeated Ramsay’s men, Brienne offers her services to Sansa once again, and the young Stark lady accepts.
