We get it, HBO — Ramsay Bolton is a monster. As if we didn't already understand the depths of his cruelty after that traumatizing Reek plot line, the folks behind Game of Thrones just keep giving us more reasons to despise the bastard of Bolton. His recent letter to Jon Snow is just one more horrific gesture that we can add to the list of reasons he sucks.
HBO released an up-close look at the correspondence, which is known as "The Pink Letter" by fans due to its pink, flayed-man wax seal. Though there's some speculation about whether or not Ramsay actually wrote the letter in the book series, it's been confirmed by series director Dan Sackheim that Bolton himself penned (or . . . quilled?) the threats for TV show purposes.
The creepily beautiful note reads:
To the Traitor and Bastard Jon Snow
You allowed thousands of Wildlings past the Wall, you have betrayed your own kind, you have betrayed the North, Winterfell is mine bastard, come and see . . .
Your brother Rickon is in my dungeon, his direwolf's skin is on my floor, come and see . . .
I want my bride back, send her to me bastard and I will not trouble you or your wildling lovers. Keep her from me and I will ride north and slaughter every wildling man, woman, and babe living under your protection. You will watch as I skin them living, you will watch as my soldiers take turn raping your sister, you will watch as my dogs devour your wild little brother, then I will spoon your eyes from their sockets and let my dogs do the rest . . . come and see . . .
Ramsay Bolton, Lord of Winterfell, Warden of the North.
YIKES. We can't wait to see Jon and Sansa's response to this sort of snail mail!
