    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    We are going to see things in a different way because i dont think she betrayed her family in season 1 for power, but for love for Joffrey. She was naive and thought she could trust Cersei and she learned her lesson. As I said I think there is a reason why Sansa lived all over Westeros, as a High Born Lady, a bastard and a hostage of war and spent so much time around political players. Her giving up the crown this season was a test and she passed. Remember she was the only one that was actually offered the crown of a queen instead of demading one and I dont think that was a coincidence or just a plot to fill up scenes.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Sansa spent season 2 to season 4 learning and observing at how to play the game and how to do politics and in season 7 we saw her actually putting that in practice. She was preparing the country for winter, making sure the castle was protected, and that her people had food and warm armours, and she also had to deal with the complains of the High Lords and trying to make them happy since she does needs their support.They wanted to overthrow Jon as King and she needed to be polite but firm about her position in the situation. What do you think ruling is? just plotting and murder? the day by day problems of the kimgdom is solved by simply acts. And I am pretty sure she did struggle about dealing with her own personal desires and aspirations and her loyalty to her family. They offer her the Northern crown and she turned down out of love for her family. Remember Sansa was the only true born daughter of Ned Stark in Winterfell when Jon Snow was made King, he was just a bastard, yet she was overlooked by all the Lords of the North, she should be the Queen of the North not him, yet she stayed loyal to him and supported his claim because Sansa learned how to put her family and the good of the country first, instead of her own ambitions. Sansa wont rule as a regent Queen, I ssee her as a consort queen, giving her advice and taking care of the castle and the country in her husband abssence. Even George RRM himself told us that she is been prepared to play the game of Thrones.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Sansa arc has never been about being a queen? Did I miss the pilot epsiode when she was betrothed to the heir of the Throne when she was 11 and has been called the key to the North since season 2? Yes, her Stark family is a huge point in her arc, but I dont think its a coincidence that she has lived in 3 different regions of the country and has been educated by Littlefinger about how to play the Game of Thrones. Also, the fact that she spent years in Kings Landing is important, when you watch closely leaders and advisers make bad decisions or even good decisions involving ruling and the management of the kingdom you can't help but to learn about those decisions. Also may I point out that no all decisions or ideas made by Jofrey, Tywyn or Cersei may have been terrible. For example Joffrey was the only one who actually was worried about Daenerys Targeryen and Tywyn told him to not worry about her, that was smart from Joffrey.

    Maybe, Danny did developed feelings for Jon. But as I said, their paths are quite similar, which for me is a bad sign for Dany

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I get it that Richard and Brandon situation was different, what I am saying its the image she reflects with those acts. She burned two High Lords, a father and a son. When they tell the story in the North or around Westeros, the details wont matter. The reason I believe that scene will be important in season 8 is because first they made sure to have Sansa remembering Richard and Brandon deaths in episode 2, then later we had Jon also mentioning to Dany that the Mad king burned his grandfather and uncle alive. Than in episode 5 we have Daenerys burning father and son. Lets be real, Dickon or Randy could have easily had died in battle, but the writers made sure that both survived and both were killed by Dany. Also the way that scene was written screamed Stannis Baratheon for me. I keep telling people, I am not getting a mad queen vibe from Dany, I am getting a Stannis vibe from her. She keeps repeating all his actions and attitutes. In season 5 we had Stannis fighting the Wildlings at the wall. Mance Ryder rebeled against the crown, and declared himself King beyond the Wall, he lead his army against Stannis and in the end he was defeated. Later Stannis demanded Mance to bend the knee and proclaim him as the rightful king so that Mance's followers could do the same, Mance refused to do so and because of that he was burned alived. Jon Snow was so horrified by this, that he disobeyed Stannis and killed Mance with a arrow because it was less painful. Now, isnt the scene with the Tarlys pretty much the same thing? Like literally? The Tarlys rebeled against the Tyrells, proclaimed Cersei as their queen, lost the batlle and in the end refused to bend the knee to Daenerys. As I said, I never saw coming Stannis burning Sheeren alive, which is why I think something will happen that will make her take Drogon to Kings Landing. Maybe she will finally done with Tyrion mistakes.

    To be honest real life genetics dont work in the show or all the Starks would have Ned's hair, not Catelyn's red hair. George was just playing with the looks of the characters

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I totally get it that from my theories i get label as a Dany hater or Jonsa, or whatever, but believe it or not I started reading those books in 2011 and from book 1 I always thought that Jon and Dany would end up together in the Iron Throne and rule Westeros and restore their family; I saw it Sansa route more as an advicer or Lady of Winterfell. Than season 7 changed all that for me. First of all the show was going out of the way to show Sansa as a efficient Queen and diplomat who was able to calm down the Lords and keep the country at peace waiting for the king to return. That got me by surprise a lot. George does foreshadows Sansa being Queen when Ned tells Arya "You will marry a King and rule his castle", "No, Thats Sansa" . So I was a bit confused by this. Than we had the romance between Jon and Dany and quite frankly it was disappointing. I dreamed with the scene where he would tell her about growing up motherless in Winterfell, or mention Maester Aemon or telling her tales of her father Ned Stark, but nothing, nada. In fact Jon Snow doesnt make one single comment about himself to Daenerys. I get it that many people liked the romance, but for me it was flat, rushed and downright poor. Last we had Daenerys, I thought she would arrive in Westeros wise and mature, but I saw a queen that had to be restrained over and over to not use her dragons in Kings Landing even tho she knows the city is covered in wild fire. I expect her to apologise for her father's mistakes and actually be humble. That didnt happened. Then to make things worse Dany decides to burn alive the Tarllys, after they refused to bend the knee. Talk about political blunder. She spends 7 years telling us that she is not her father's daughter then decides to burn two High Lords, a father and a son together, just like her father did to Richard and Brandon Satrk, mind you this was the act that started the rebelion. For me it was like, if Marie Antoinette daughter, came back to France after the Revolution promising to not be like her mother, then just after her first victory in French soil she started throwing cake at the defeated soldiers. I just didnt get it. This is terrible PR and she should know better by now. I see now a lot of parallels between Dany and Stannis; both had the rightful claims to the Throne, both were grey characters but are trying to do good, both use fire to kill their enemies, both can be rutheless. Both burned alive a leader to make their followers to bend the knee, Stannis burned Mance and Dany burned the Tarllys. Stannis just like Dany had several defeats and decided to stop the Throne fight to go North save the realm, he also wanted the North to help him to defeat the Lannisters after he helped them with the Wildlings and the Boltons. For me its like history is repeating itself.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Lol, I am not leaving this site, I quite like it. In fact when one this things that I always loved about ASOIAF was that theories were celebrated and gladly discussed. Than season 7 happened and all of sudden if you didnt believe Jon and Dany were to get married, have babies and rule Westeros together you were called a mad man or a hater. The more I read the books the more certain I am that Daenerys will be a very tragic character in the end. I think that both Ice and Fire will destroy Westeros and her dragons will burn down Kings Landing. We have Bran's vision in season 6 of a dragon flying above Kings Landing (and we were told in the commentaries that this was supposed to be a very important vision) and we know that the underground of the city is full of wildfire; in the books George writes that "magic is a sword without a hilt" it can not be controlled completely. Daenerys for me was written in parallel with Cersei, both were sold of to marriage by their families to seek power; both became queens very young; both became the mothers of 3 children; both decided to use their children to hold power, both love their child even tho they are monsters and are capable of great destruction. Cersei thought she could control Joffrey and use him to rule the 7 Kingdoms, we saw what happened in season 1. The same way Dany thinks she can control Drogon to get the Iron Throne. Savage beats cannot be controlled. We even have Mirri Maz Duur on seaosn 1 telling Dany that she killed her son because he was going to be The Stallion That Will Mount the world, But we know now that Dany herself is the Stallion who united all the Khalasars and rode them to the end of the world, bringing them to Westeros. Besides, doesnt she has 3 fires to light up? One was the pyre that birth the dragons; another one was the fire that burned down the Dosh Khallen temple to unite the all the Khalasars, and what do you think will be the last one? Winterfell? I dont think she will be a villain, but she will be seing as a villain by Westeros. The Queen of Ashes who brought dragons back and destroy the kingdom. Call me crazy, but it makes quite sense in my mind.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Why would Jon and Dany run Westeros when in his first outline he planned a Jon and Arya romance? In fact the whole parentage would be kept in secerat until the end when finally it was revealed they would be free to be together. Daenerys was never meant to rule or end up with Jon Snow. What in seven hells? She was mean to the man she was forced to marry when she was a child? Who tried to rape her on her weddign night? And those chapter with Tyrion only made me more convinced that 1- Tyrion is a fool when it comes to women, and George made sure to show how easily he was fooled by Sansa, and 2 showing that Sansa was way smarter than people around her believed her to be. Tyrion was about to ruin her plans to escape, so she had to think about something quickly. The idea that George wrote those scenes to make the audience feel pity for poor old Tyrion who was rejected by his forced child bride is quite something. As I said, I have no doubt in my mind the Sansa whole arc will end with her being the consort Queen. She knows the country, their customs and traditions, the religion and was educated in the way Westerosis do politics. She is dimplomatic and charming and actually able to change the Lords opinions without the use of force or threats.

    Oh I believe that Jon will be king, but also believe that Sansa wil be his queen in a political marriage. They will be the ones rebuilding the country after the wars.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I realized, a long time ago, that I am reading and watching a differrent show than lots of people. Because in my books, Sansa has been groomed to be a queen since book 1. Like, I no even have a doubt in my mind. Her entire arc in the books is about learning the political game and experiencing life in Westeros. She grew up in the North, went to Kings Landing, later spends time in the Vale. Thats 3 very important regions of the Kingdom that she has experience and she still has personal connections with Riverland. Sansa also lived as a High born Lady, a hostage of war and as a bastard girl, she has experienced very different situations of life in Westeros. In Kings Landing she was able to watch closely people like Tywin, Cersei, Jofreey, Varys and she was able to see how to act and most important, how not to act as a ruler. Her chapters in the Vale are also very good and Littlefinger is teaching her to be political savy, and use diplomacy to solve conflicts and problems, you know, one would think that diplomacy is actually a quality expected in a ruler. Whe she was in Kings Landing she was almost raped and killed by a handful of rioters who were mad at the King, she reflects that the people who tried to rape and kill her were desperate for food and help and that if she could in the future, she would help them. Later, she has another very important scene with Cersei where Cersei teaches Sansa that she should rule by fear, because thats the only way they will be loyal to you. Sansa, once again reflects about this and doesnt agree with Cersei at all. In season 7 they made sure to show her rulling the North, preparing the country for winter. She cares about food, warm armours for the soldiers, provisions for the cold. She listens to what the High Lords have to say, respect their opinions but assures them that in the end they must be loyal to their King Jon Snow and follow his command. She is clever, polite, charming, diplomatic and respectful. She was so good that the Lords of the North wanted to make her Queen. She is doing in season 7 what she planned on book 1!!! We had two Queens fighting for the Iron Throne in season 7, both using their armies and dragons to intimitate the Lords and the people of the country, both using fear as their main tool. Daenerys literally says to those poor soldiers, "Join me or die", I mean, who wouldn't it? Then in the North, we have Sansa turning down a chance to be Queen for the good of her family and the North and deciding to be loyal to Jon, the Lords are actually trying to bend the knee for her, withouth threats, withouth armies or dragons. They want to make her queen because they love her. "I am ever a queen, I'll make them love me." How can the show be any more obvious?????? I dont know how can people say that Sansa will die in season 8, like, as I said, we are watching a different show, it must be.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Oh, and I have no doubt in my mind that Sansa will be the one restauring House Stark and passing her name to her children. Marriage and motherhood has been a constant in her book and tv show arc and we had characters like Littlefinger point out "you my love, are the future of House Stark" for a reason.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Have you all wondered that maybe George played with the looks of the characters for a reason? Jon Snow is a true born Targaryen, who will probably restaure House Targaryen in the Iron Throne, but he looks like a Stark; Sansa was the Stark child that took back the North and put House Stark back at Winterfell, yet she looks like a Tully. Jon got his looks from his mother, but his sad and brooding personlaity comes form his father; Sansa got her looks from her mother, but she is the Stark child that most acts like Ned. I see a lot of people in forums saying that Sansa is not a real Stark and more like a Tully just because she looks like her mother and I just want to point out that yes, she looks like a Tully, but inside Sansa is very similar to Ned Stark; the same can be said about Arya, who looks like Ned Stark but her personality is very similar to Catelyn. George did that on purpose. Arya seeks revenge like her mother; after her father was killed all she ever thought was to kill those who wronged House Stark, she is jealous like Catelyn used to be of Ned (she was furious when Edric Dayne said the Ned Stark loved another woman) and can be very hot headed. Let me be clear, I am not bashing Arya, those are very regular characteristics and I actually like those aspects of Arya. Sansa in the other hand is naive, sweet and trustful just like papa Ned. Sansa refused to see how terrible Joffrey really was, because she was in love with him, just like Ned who refused to see that his best friend Robert Baratheon was no longer the man he met years ago, Robert was now a drunk, fat irresponsible King, but Ned didn’t want to see it. Sansa runs to Cersei to tell her the Ned’s plans to leave KL, believing that Cersei could never hurt her; the same damn thing was done by Ned, who runs to Cersei to let her know that he knew it about the incest and her affair with Jaime, believing that Cersei would just runaway and never hurt him or his family. They both payed it a huge price for their mistakes. In the books, Sansa who very was abused and mistreated by Joffrey, actually feels sad for his death, because she is such gentle and kind person, just like Ned. All Ned wanted after the Rebelion was go back to Winterfell, rebuild his family and live a peaceful life, that’s pretty much all Sansa wants in the books too, she never has plans about avenging her family or plots to murder those who treat her badly. She wants love, family and peace. She dreams about having children and playing in the garden with puppies. I am always amazed at how people think Arya is the only true Stark daughter, when Sansa has so much of papa Ned, but then again, Ned was never like his brother Barndon or even his sister Lyanna, he didnt have much of the Wolf Blood in him.
