    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    If you actually hear that interview, Sophie goes on about how all of them got statues to promote the season, hence why Sansa got one. Nothing to see here. I don't even bother anymore because every year @Newstar makes a comment about how Sansa will die. In season 6 it was because it was "Poetic", season 7 it was "The huge death of the season". At this point, this late in the game, it's just sad to expect a character's death so much. "So, we did this promo for this season... I'm not sure I'm supposed to say this, actually... But It's like this big statue of like, me, of Sansa (...) But they wouldn't ship it from Belfast to New York, so it was impossible."

    Why do people hate Sansa?

    Mostly, people are allowed to like and dislike any character on the series; They just ought to be respectful to others. As for Sansa herself, I think my username says it all. I quite like her arc, she has a great development and I'm excited to see which way the books are going to go. I'm pretty sure, as the author has said, her weapon, and by that I mean her wits, will pay off and she'll be responsible for the retaking of Winterfell. Something tells me she'll be the Lady of Winterfell when this is all over. We'll just have to see. Different roads, same ending, the man himself has said. I quite like how she finds strength in her resiliance to the Lannister regime, how she makes an effort to escape (With Dontos, the man she saves!) and even takes a knife to their first meeting at the Godswood, thinking that if it is a trap, she'll find a way. She survives as she uses her inner strength and her own intelligence and perception as political weapons, and she does not bend.

    We have a new Wardeness of the North. That is all I really care about. Some of the episode was really bland, but generally could be worse.

    It wasn't a bad episode, but it was far from a good one. I actually caught myself agreeing with show-Sansa much more than I did with show-Jon. That tension doesn't seem to hold any harm though, because it's pretty clear they'd never go against each other. Euron's just bad. Bad acting, bad dialogue, bad everything.

    Yeah. The thing is, it makes sense for the Karstarks to be in the Bolton's side, because of the whole situation with their Lord and Robb. Even then, you still have Alys. The other houses, not so much. Okay, Robb married the wrong girl. Yet, Roose betrayed him, murdered him and several members of the noble families of the North. Glovers and Umbers lost family members at the Red Wedding! How does that make any sense? They should pretty much grovel at Sansa and Jon's feet when they appeared. Cersei's plot is pretty much how NOT to write an adaptation 101. She's clearly a stand-in for Aegon, without all the reasons that make him such a powerful figure. She's been publicly humiliated, the Lannister army is scattered, according to the show there are no more mines in Casterly Rock, she's indebted to the Iron Bank, she has no claim whatsoever to the IT, yet she still manages to win some battles? House Lannister should be ruined, but not according to the D&D and plot gifts.

    You remind me of me pre-episode 6. Sansa lit the candle, and it was all for nothing. I guess one more ridiculous plotline paying off.

    Maybe they're merging Jon's plot with Ramsay. Sounds exactly like something they would do, to be honest. Ramsay's AAR

    At least her magic serves a purpose! She teleports to Castle Black and she changes dresses! I'm almost betting on show Melisandre becoming the green priestress next year! Oh, the possibilities!

    It's just a plot point. Why have characters when you can have walking plot points?

    They decided not worth the effort. No Aegon, no point in doing that. Cas, I guess Dead Stannis is worst. Jeynsa will be retconned with her book plot next year, so there's that.

    I'm not sure which is worse. Dead Stannis or Jeynsa.

    I laughed out loud. So much for Sansa agency. Great fun.

    At least they translated our feelings to the show.

    You just described the entirety of Sansa's arc this season, JonCon. Simply plot-device characterization and actions. In both cases, in detriment to their characterization, to make them act stupid for demands of the plot. Like Sansa choosing to go to Winterfell, this was just a pretty poor plot-device.
