If Stannis defends the North against the Others, and prevails with the help of Jon Snow. Why couldnt Stannis ultimately rule the realm from Winterfell? All talk about the Vale centers around an alliance with the north because of Sansa. We also have Davos seeking out Rickon. We cant forget Bran's influence via Weirwood to possibly set certain things in motion.
Could Stannis win in the end?
