    What will happen to Stannis in TWOW?

    My hope/prediction (I've read a lot of this in other posts so most of it is not my ideas, just stuff I agree with): The Manderlys somehow alert Stannis that they are going to turn on the Freys, and together they destroy the Frey army marching on Stannis' position. The Manderlys return to Winterfell "victorious" and state that Stannis' army was smashed and present the Boltons with Lightbringer. The pink letter is legit, but the information is incorrect. The Manderlys inside Winterfell open the doors to Stannis, who sacks the city. Ramsay and Roose are either killed or executed, although I could see them possibly escaping only to be killed later by Northerners they thought were friends but were secretly loyal to the Starks. Meanwhile, back at the Wall Mel sees the contents of the pink letter and, believing them to true, sacrifices Shireen to bring back Stannis. But Jon Snow is resurrected instead, so Mel then believes he is AA Reborn instead of Stannis. Stannis sends for Mel, Shireen and the wife to come to Winterfell, or perhaps he returns to Castle Black. Upon learning of Shireen's burning, he kills Mel (I'm thinking he strangles her with his bare hands) but is killed in turn by Selyse in the heat of the moment. The "Queen's Men" rally to Jon Snow becuase they learn of his resurrection, while the North unites behind the newly returned Rickon Stark (who would just be a figurehead for Wyman Manderly provided he survives the battle at Winterfell).

    Jon should bend his knees.

    Jon and the North have all the reason they need not to bend the knee. What has the South ever given the North except conquest, betrayal, murder and war? Rickard Stark- betrayed and unjustly executed Brandon Stark - betrayed and executed Ned Stark - betrayed and executed Sansa Stark - held and married against her will Robb Stark and many Northern lords - betrayed and murdered at a wedding feast. This is to say nothing of the North getting embroiled in conflicts created by the other kingdoms (Greyjoy Rebellion and Dance of the Dragons, etc.) Jon may be asking for assistance to fight the others, but that is for the good of all Westeros, not just the North. The North owes nothing to the South and has gotten nothing but grief and misery from Southern kings.

    Manderly Wrote the Pink Letter

    While it would be unlike Stannis, I think the pink letter might be from him. When you compare some of the wording of the letter: " I want my bride back.... And I want my Reek. With what Theon told him in the TWOW sample chapter: "He wants his bride back. He wants his Reek." - The wording is very similar. Perhaps this is not a coincidence?
