Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7.
Sansa Stark went through a lot to get where she is when Game of Thrones Season 7 begins. The question is, will it be enough? Or will she betray Jon Snow for more?
Based on recent interviews with Sansa’s portrayer Sophie Turner, and Season 7 spoilers, Lady Stark will face the pull of power in the next season of Game of Thrones.
When Season 6 ended, Sansa (Sophie Turner) and her brother Jon Snow (Kit Harington) had successfully followed through with a military campaign to take back Winterfell from House Bolton. Thanks to Jon’s heroics on the battlefield, and Sansa calling in backup from the Knights of the Vale, the Stark siblings won.
With a major victory under their belts, speculation as to what is in store for the power duo in Game of Thrones Season 7 is running rampant. From marriage to betrayal, here is what is known.
What does Season 6 tells us?
In the Season 6 finale, Jon and Sansa mildly discussed the events of that battle. Despite everything he did, a modest Jon gave Sansa all of the credit for the victorious outcome.
Sansa did not argue with him. She then apologized for not telling Jon about the raven she sent to Littlefinger, and the secret resource she had at her disposal: the Knights of the Vale.
Upon hearing this, Jon asserted the need for them to “trust each other,” and not fight a war among themselves. Sansa did not disagree, and they shared a warm moment as Sansa announced that winter had finally come. Why Sansa was notified of that before Jon was not clear.
Sansa ends Season 6 on a mysterious note
The final moments to feature Jon and Sansa in Season 6 revolved around a momentous meeting between the Northern Lords. At the end of that scene, Jon was chosen to be the King in the North. Before accepting, Jon looked to Sansa for her approval, and she gave it, nodding with a slight smile.
What happened next would set off a storm of speculation that has yet to die down. The cryptic look Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) exchanged with Sansa, as Jon was declared king, set the internet ablaze with speculation as to what it meant for them in Game of Thrones Season 7.
