7. THE STATE OF THE NORTH
The greatest change for the North has been in Winterfell, from which the Starks rule once again, having just taken it from the vile Ramsay Bolton. Now almost every northern house, even the houses that were initially hesitant, have sworn themselves to their new King in the North: Houses Mormont, Glover and Umber to name a few. We can’t forget that Jon also has the Wildlings and knights of the Vale (for now) under his command. It’ll be interesting to see how the Wildlings and northerners get along in the upcoming season.
There are, of course, those who betrayed the Starks and swore fealty to Ramsay Bolton. House Karstark, for example, has held a grudge against the Starks for a while now, beginning when Robb Stark beheaded Rickard Karstark for betraying him. Their fate has not yet been shown, but we can assume that this is not the end of the conflict between the Starks and Karstarks.
