The inscrutable Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) has been at the forefront of great theorizing over the course of Game of Thrones‘ past several seasons. As one of the many beleaguered Stark siblings, Sansa has experienced tremendous trauma and, as Season 6 ended, triumph. Has Sansa already turned to the “dark side” to make the latter happen and betrayed Jon Snow in the process?

Who is Sansa Stark, really?

The truth is that in Game of Thrones Season 6, the Sansa that emerges is a character that is hard to pin down. She is mercurial. She chooses her words carefully, like any politician. Although she still experiences the occasional outburst, as was seen in her handling of the Northern lords in the Season 6 episode, “The Broken Man.”

Sansa seems aware of the role people expect her to play, and changes it from audience member to audience member. To Jon Snow, she is a loving little sister. To Arya, she is a stuffy older sister. To Littlefinger, she is an impressionable ingenue. To Cersei Lannister, she is a mirror. To Brienne of Tarth, she is the cagey daughter of the woman she pledged her eternal devotion to, and the list goes on.

For Game of Thrones viewers who have seen her take on these various personas, the elusive nature of Sansa Stark is apparent. So to what end is she playing these various roles?
