"I think the Stark that should rule Winterfell is Sansa because she deserves it and she's a natural born leader", said Turner when asked who among the Stark kids should rule the North, "I don't think she really wants the Iron Throne at all". His reappearance reminds us that Beric Dondarrion and the Brotherhood Without Banners - the men who tried to protect bystanders from becoming casualties of the warring great houses - are still around. Bran continues his training under the Three-Eyed Raven, learning that the Children of the Forest created White Walkers and that he has the ability to control the future by changing the past. Bran travels north of the wall where discovers the truth of the past.
Turner's response is interesting becasue it has been hinted already (by Turner herself) that there's going to be tension and jealously been Jon and Sansa, as she goes on a power trip after feeding her abusive husband Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) to his own hounds and gaining some agency in a world where she's been powerless. During her travels, she unwillingly takes on a squire, Podrick Payne.
Sansa is forced to watch as Ned, having been branded a traitor by the Crown and locked up after King Robert Baratheon's death, is executed on the order of Joffrey and his mother, Queen Cersei. "But I found my strength in her, and I think she found her strength in me". Also in the sept were the High Sparrow and his loyal fanatics, who had risen to power in the city and humiliated Cersei by forcing her to walk the city naked.
Game of Thrones is about to enter its seventh season, which will be its second to last. Then we'd get the bonus of an Arya and Jon reunion as well as her reconnecting with Sansa, who could probably use a sister right about now.
Jon Snow started season 6 dead, but was brought back to life by the Red Woman Melisandre.
Actress Sophie Turner said her character Sansa Stark might annoy hardcore "Game of Thrones" fans in the upcoming season as now her part has some power at her disposal. This time she may be the one giving him orders. Only the emasculated, terrified, cowering Theon-filled with guilt for betraying her family-attempts to help her, as does a watching Brienne from forests outside Winterfell. With that, United States actor Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, couldn't have described a character's longevity on GOTany better in the Time article: "Anyone who's still alive on our show is pretty smart". After killing his father and fleeing King's Landing he now finds himself in the service of Daenerys Targaryen.
