Here's Exactly What Jon's Letter to Sansa Said on 'Game of Thrones'—and Why It's Huge
The Game of Thrones season seven finale was stacked with jaw-dropping moments. (Spoilers ahead) Jon and Daenerys finally slept together! Arya killed Littlefinger! Tormund’s beard managed to get even sexier (OK, maybe that’s just my opinion)! But one of the bombshells not a lot of people are discussing is the letter Jon wrote to his sister, Sansa Stark. Much like Littlefinger’s scroll, the font was pretty illegible at first glance. Thanks to the Internet, though, we finally know what Jon wrote—and it’s very interesting.
Read the full letter for yourself, below:
Cersei Lannister has pledged her forces to our cause, as has Daenerys
Targaryen. And if we survive this war, I have pledged our forces to
Daenerys at the rightful Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. We are both
coming to organise the defence of the realm.
Jon Snow. Warden of the North.
And here’s what it looked like on the show, in case you forgot:

Way to just drop all this information so casually, Jon. He literally just told Sansa he stepped down from the throne and surrendered an army to Dany in one fell swoop. I’m surprised he didn’t preface this with some sucking up, seeing as how much Sansa was in his corner.
So why is this huge, you ask? It foreshadows drama between Jon and Sansa. Something tells me Sansa isn’t going to be OK with just giving up the North and its army to Dany. She’s a born leader, and I can just picture her glowering at Jon and saying, “Look, I’m sorry you had to go fall in love with your aunt, but the North is mine.” Jon will probably pout in response. One of Dany’s dragons will hiss. It’s going to be drama, drama, drama. Is it 2019 yet?
