According to Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the HBO show, the main cast have recieved the first scripts for the upcoming episodes. She spoke to Variety about how her character will progress, teasing either working with the twisted LittleFinger or teaming with step-brother-but-really-nephew Jon Snow.
“I actually don’t know because of the way last season left off. There are so many options,” she told the publication. “She could run with Littlefinger and become a villain and sadistic. Or she could also team up with her brother Jon.”
If you add this to what the actress said at Comic-Con earlier this year - that Sansa believes Jon is “not capable of running Winterfell” - then should we expect a Littlefinger collaboration? Or perhaps she’ll go lone wolf for a while. Either way, expect some Sansa scheming to come.
Turner also spoke about how she would like to see her character to die: “A long, slow episode-lasting death, where it’s just one long scene of my death and no one else. And it’s going to be the last episode of the last season.”
It has been reported that Game of Thrones will last for two more seasons, something Turner says she “always kinda knew”.
“It’s really sad. It’s really uncomfortable to think about my life without Game of Thrones. Not only has it been like a family — going to see a family every summer — but it’s also been a safety net. When I finish this I don’t actually know what’s going to happen.
“I might slip into a deep, deep depression because I won’t know what to do with myself. It’s going to be very strange. I feel people are going to miss it dearly.”
