Ramsay Bolton is without a doubt the most-hated character in all of Westeros. He tortured Theon Greyjoy, raped his wife Sansa Stark, and he killed his father, brother, and step-mother—but honestly, that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Just in case you need another reason to despise the certifiably crazy Lord of Winterfell, the letter he sent to Jon Snow at Castle Black on this week's episode of Game of Thrones, will add fuel to the already raging fire. HBO released an up-close look at the correspondence, which is called "The Pink Letter" by fans due to the flayed-man wax seal, and it's not just the words that are terrifying. Bolton's penmanship adds to the disturbing nature of the letter. See for yourself below.
If, like us, you struggle to discern the words, continue reading for the full transcript.
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.
Here's hoping that Jon and Sansa take him down and rescue Rickon!
