A genius Game of Thrones fan has decoded Sansa Stark's mysterious letter

In Game of Thrones season 6 episode 7, The Broken Man, we all saw how Jon, Sansa and Ser Davos got busy trying to gather an army to march agains the Boltons, but we also saw how they were kicked out of most of the places, apart from getting 62 men from the fiesty Lady Mormont of Bear Island. Amidst this chaos, Sansa Stark (or wait, is it Lannister or Bolton?) was seen sitting down to write a letter. What this letter said, however, nobody could figure out thanks to all of the mystery that the showrunners love to create. But whatever the show does, fans decipher it better.

Redditor CreepyPancakes went on to translate this message by zooming in, taking a screenshot, and flipping the letter upside down so as to be able to read it. And this ingenious method has managed to reveal what she wrote in the letter. The decoded letter was posted on Imgur and it goes like this: “[…] 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 that you are well rewarded.”

Here’s the process that CreepyPancakes followed while decoding the letter.

The translation process was also explained by the fan as, “I’ve traced the legible words in black, and the barely legible (plus educated guesses on the missing ones, based on surrounding words) in red. ‘north’ and ‘rewarded’ are legible in other shots of the letter, such as when she stamps it. Question marks indicate a dubious word, but the most likely.” In other words: it might not be exact, but it’s probably pretty close.”

This revelation has now given more boost to two of the popular theories about Sansa going around on the internet these days. The first, and most obvious theory,  is that she might have written to Littlefinger about getting the Knights of the Vale to fight for her, and the other theory suggests that Sansa might actually be trying to contact her cousin Robin Arryn for his help.

It only makes the subject more curious, and we simply can’t wait until the next episode!

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn’t burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn't burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones series finale was hated by the fandom to a degree where it triggered millions of people into signing a petition to remake the final season of the show. However, if there was one thing that everybody liked, it was Drogon burning the Iron Throne. Most of the fandom agreed that this was a great choice, but now it seems as though that might not have been intentional like we had thought. Read on!

Now, as you might know, Emmy nominated scripts are made available online, and with the series finale of Game of Thrones, titled “The Iron Throne” getting nominated, the script followed soon. What we saw in the show was Drogon burning the throne down, and the general interpretation was that Drogon was mad at the throne for being the real reason behind Daenerys’ death, and that Drogon wanted to break the wheel like his mother always wanted. However, the script has a different version of how it went down:

“Drogon wants to burn the world, but he will not kill Jon. He breathes fire on the back wall, blasting down what remains of the great red blocks of stone. We look over Jon’s shoulder as the fire sweeps toward the throne – not the target of Drogon’s wrath, just a dumb bystander caught up in the conflagration.”

Well, that’s awkward. The very reason why everybody liked the melting was that they assumed it was because Drogon was smart enough to see that it was the throne’s fault. Now, this looks like just another reason for the fans to hate the showrunners and writers/directors of the finale, David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In the meantime, the PDF of the script has been locked down on the Emmy website, requiring a login to be able to access.

What do you guys think about this reason? Would you have preferred it to be intentional? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa celebrated his 40th birthday with a 168-pound Guinness and whiskey cake

If there’s one Game of Thrones star that knows how to party, it’s Jason Momoa. The actor, who played the role of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, recently celebrated his 40th birthday at a surprise party thrown for him by his friends. Apparently, the party involved a giant 168-pound cake made out of Guinness and whiskey! Read on.

We had reported about the mini-reunion that Momoa had with his Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke, who was present at the party. Now, further details have been revealed, and it looks like the cake was the star of the party, reports INSIDER.

Made by UK-based baker Aggy Dadan of Edible By Aggy, the cake was infused with Guinness and whiskey and took a week to make. It was served on a giant sugar surfboard, with a wave on one side and a mountain on the other, two things Momoa is known to love. It also featured mini-figurines of Momoa, shown climbing the mountain and playing the guitar while surfing on the wave. Check out the pictures:

Dagan said:

“I was thinking, what could be better than putting the whole thing on a sugar surfboard. We incorporated a little mini pint of Guinness, because he loves Guinness, and a little box of donuts for his best friend [Mada Abdelhamid], who calls himself ‘Donut Man.’

Jason is a big family man, so [Abdelhamid] wanted to include things that represented that in the cake. They left it pretty much up to me, which I love. I love when people let me use my creativity.”

Dagan had previously made a 3/4 scale Aquaman bust cake for Momoa for the premiere of the film, and Momoa seems to have stuck with her.
