Ramsay Bolton is probably one of the sickest, most wicked evil villain that’s ever given viewers chills through television. In the first few episodes of Game of Thrones Season 6, Ramsay was on a major killing spree which he topped off with his piercing, menacing smile. But all things must come to an end, and it appears that Ramsay’s reign of terror is nearing the finish line.

In Book of the Stranger, Jon Snow receives a letter from Ramsay Bolton detailing how he will torture Jon and every person he loves if he doesn’t return Sansa Stark to Winterfell. Sansa reminds Jon that Winterfell is their home and that they have to reclaim what is rightfully theirs. Jon becomes determined to dethrone Ramsay. With the support of Tormund and the Wildlings, Jon has himself an army to take down the Boltons.

Aside from the Pink Letter, viewers turned their attention to Jon Snow’s outfit in that particular scene. In the past five seasons of Game of Thrones, Jon’s wardrobe has been very consistent. He always wears an all-black ensemble. But Jon made a striking upgrade to his wardrobe in episode 4—he was wearing the Stark armour.

The brown suit of armour was briefly worn by Ned and Robb Stark. Both of them previously served as the Warden of the North.

In Game of Thrones, there’s no such thing as mere coincidence. One thing almost always leads to another. Jon’s sudden change in wardrobe preference seems to be a fitting foreshadowing of what’s to come in episode 5.

Sophie Turner may have also dropped a hint about Ramsay’s demise when she played a little game of “2 Truths and a Lie” with Yahoo TV. The game is simple: a person gives out two truths and one lie without divulging which is which. Here are Turner’s answers:

  • “Ramsay dies.”
  • “Lady Stoneheart returns.”
  • “Arya checks three people off her list.”

Game of Thrones director Alex Graves previously stated that bringing back Catelyn Stark as the vengeful zombie does not play well with where the story is going.

“To bring back Michelle Fairley, one of the greatest actresses around, to be a zombie for a little while – and just kill people? It is really sort of, what are we doing with that? How does it play into the whole story in a way that we’re really going to like?” Graves told Entertainment Weekly.

To verify this, Michelle Fairley said in a separate interview that her character’s dead. Lady Stoneheart returning is definitely the surest thing that isn’t true among the three. And of course, who better to confidently confirm Ramsay’s death than Sansa herself?
