Last we heard, the mission was to rescue a girl fleeing through the wilderness near Long Lake. Nothing at all about Winterfell. And this is from Melisandre's POV, so we know it's true. If she did send Mance to Winterfell, then she very much changed her mind (why?) and is being duplicitous towards Jon. He knew nothing about Mance going to Winterfell and wouldn't have approved if he did. If you're suggesting someone is forging a letter, you'd better come up with a good reason why. Analyzing content is nice, but unless that content is impossible to produce by the stated writer, it really gets you nowhere without a motive. And Ramsay's motives are more convincing than anyone else's I've seen. Certainly Jon is convinced the mission is to simply intercept a girl in the wilderness near Long Lake. But either Mel or Mance can come to the realisation that the fleeing girl may be the result of their actions, before Mance leaves. And certainly Mance ended up thinking this, because he did not wait around near Long Lake. And yes, Mel is being duplicitous to Jon. She only revealed it was a glamored Mance, because there was no way in hell he was going to send Rattleshirt. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
