This was not a great week for Ser Jorah Mormont: during Game of Thrones season seven episode Stormborn, the former knight was told he had months to live before Sam Tarly lopped off his pus-filled greyscale.
However, unbeknownst to Jorah, one moment in the episode earned him a new legion of fans.
It’s all thanks to the heartfelt farewell letter that he wrote to Daenerys Targaryen before undergoing Tarly’s experimental greyscale treatment. While viewers only saw a glimpse of it in the episode, the Game of Thrones Twitter account has now released the full version of the note.

The full letter reads:
I came to the Citadel in the last hope that the maesters could treat me, as you ordered. Even with all their arts, I am beyond any cure but the grave.
I have had a longer life than I deserved, and I only wish I could’ve lived to see the world you’re going to build, standing by your side. I have loved you since the moment I met you.”
Even the most stone-hearted of Thrones fans couldn’t scale back their heartbreak…
Fam they told Jorah he had one day left to live and he spent it writing a goodbye letter to Daenerys ???

Although the fandom remains divided whether the goodbye letter was necessary or if Jorah would soon reunite with Daenerys…

There was a brief moment when Sam read that book about dragon glass, on the previous page, it said ingesting it could cure grayscale #eatup????
