'Game Of Thrones' Might Have Revealed The Cure For Greyscale Last Night

By Jaime Lutz

(Spoilers ahead, obviously!)

If you watched the season premiere of Game of Thrones last night, you know that Sam Tarly is currently studying to be a maester, though most of his duties involve taking care of people with greyscale and cleaning up feces. 

According to the 'Game of Thrones' fan wiki, Greyscale, also known as 'Prince Garin's curse,' is a dreaded and usually fatal disease that can leave flesh stiff and dead, and the skin cracked and flaking, and stone-like to the touch. Those that manage to survive a bout with the illness will be immune from ever contracting it again, but the flesh damaged by the ravages of the disease will never heal, and they will be scarred for life."

You also would have noticed that Jorah Mormont is one of Sam's patients.
