Now that Stannis is making that paper, his next move is obviously to invade King’s Landing again, right? We mean, the timing is perfect with Joffrey dead and Tyrion’s trial going on and all the confusion... except that’s not what he’s going to do, at least based on the books.
Remember at the end of Season 3 when Davos gives Stannis a letter from the Night’s Watch asking for help against Mance Rayder and his Wildling army? Well, Stannis remembers it, and that’s where he’s headed next.
During the battle at the Wall, things aren’t going to go so well for the Night’s Watch. They have the Wall, but they’ve only got about a hundred men. Mance has 100,000, give or take, plus giants, so while his casualties may be heavy it’s only a matter of time before he breaches the Wall. Enter Stannis.
Just when things look like they’re at their absolute worst for the Night’s Watch, Stannis and his army show up and decimate Mance’s ranks. Thus begins Stannis’ time at the Wall where he pals around with Jon Snow. Should be a good time.
