I wonder if/when we will see the knights of the Vale join the battle. Dorne is in good shape too and would be a solid ally to anyone looking for more troops.

You bring up a good point. Littlefinger did pledge to Sansa that her husband-to-be would take the knights of the Vale to Winterfell and reclaim her home.

The **** is truly about to hit the fan in the North.

Also, I have to disagree with you on the Boltons. I think Ramsay will be killed by one of Jon Snow/Azor Ahai, Stannis or one of Daeny's dragons. But not before he kills his father, Roose Bolton, usurping his spot as head of House Bolton.

Found this on the A Forum of Ice and Fire website. I really like this idea.

Stannis knows that approximately half of Bolton's force is on their way to him, with the other half holed up in Winterfell. He's uncovered Karstark's betrayal and has the two ravens that are trained to fly to Winterfell. He smashes the Freys, most likely with the help of Manderley's forces, and sends word by raven of victory and conspires with Manderley for Manderley to return with "proof" of Stannis' death, which perhaps explains the "7 days of battle" in the letter. In addition to proof, Manderly also returns with word that Arya Stark and Reek had been sent on to the Wall for protection. This is when Ramsay sends the letter to Castle Black. Most likely Manderley's forces will have been "decimated" (while in reality most of them joined Stannis' forces) so the Boltons know they will have to march on the Wall to get back Arya/Jeyne, since she's their only legitimate claim to Winterfell and there is no chance the Lord Commander will return her to them.

Meanwhile, Stannis' and Manderley's forces march up the Kingsroad to Winterfell and take the now lightly guarded castle, trapping Bolton's forces between Winterfell and the Wall.

I think the key piece of evidence is that Ramsay asks for Reek. If Stannis truly had been defeated, then Ramsay would have had Theon, since Stannis certainly wasn't going to release him, or at the least, Ramsay would have found out that Theon had been executed. The Boltons and Freys are about to receive their comeuppance.

Didn't even think of that but definitely could see Ramsay killing Roose.

As far as the show goes, I'm assuming that we'll see the Red Wedding in episode 9. They seem to have their big moments in episode 9 (Baelor and Blackwater) and allow for episode 10 as a recap/setup for the following year. What I really think would be cool to do would be have the Red Wedding as episode 9, your setup/recap episode at 10 and then open season 4 with the purple wedding! How great would that be!?

In other news the role of the Blackfish has been cast.
