Woman of War Posted May 6, 2016 Share Posted May 6, 2016 9 hours ago, Risto said: Apparently this joke got the life of its own... I will be more careful next time Why doesn't have to be the other way around? I mean why not Tyrion accepting and realizing how smart and great Sansa is? And while I would agree that 12-year-old version of Sansa's beliefs about perfect husband should not be considered as rather real, I do believe that she, in many ways like Tyrion, wants a man who will love her. So, she is not clinging to any sort of fantasy (especially TVSansa) with regard to marriages and perfect husbands. There would be something rather Tolstoy-esque in it. Sansa could end up being Martin's Natalia Rostova or Kitty Scherbatskaya. Which, TBH, can be argued. But, I think that Martin has a bit different relationship with Sansa from the one Tolstoy had with Natalia or Kitty. Right, Sansa - show Sansa, to the dismay of show haters - is not the clueless little girl she was, she is on her way to be a strong and clever woman, though maybe with more detours if show timing allows it. This so far does not mean that she will stay among the more or less "good guys and girls" but last episode and her goodbye to Theon would suggest that. And Tyrion would have to realize that she is a remarkable person. After the last episode that would be more likely than Sansa getting the Lady Stoneheart role. Tolstoy - big words, why so complicated? Sansa and Tyrion could just end up just like Cat and Ned: marrying because of political necessities and becoming a team of friends and lovers. The only difference would be that no father would force them anywhere, it would alone be the free decion of Sansa and Tyrion. Pure speculation of course, not our story but Martin's and the show will follow. Sansa could of course end as unmarried Lady of Winterfell - over the dead bodies of Bran and Rickon. Or happy with Pod or dead or whatever. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
