Just when Winterfell seems to have settled down, Game of Thrones Season 7 may see House Stark crumble again.
Sophie Turner who plays Sansa Stark has just revealed in a string of interviews that Sansa may indeed be jealous of the new King in the North, Jon Snow.
The major clue lies in Jon Snow’s coronation as the King of the North. As everyone around her hails the new king, Sansa’s smile fades as her gaze falls on Littlefinger.
Moments before the coronation, Sansa and Petyr Baelish meet at the godswood. This is where Littlefinger makes his Iron Throne quest known to Sansa. He reiterates to Sansa she is a Stark while Jon is a bastard from the south.
“She rejects him in the beginning, but there’s definitely something in her that’s … it’s kind of a jealousy toward Jon. He’s getting all of the credit for basically Sansa saving his ass. Obviously he played a huge part in the Battle of the Bastards, but Sansa really saved him. There’s a bit of jealousy there,” Sophie divulges to The Hollywood Reporter.
The jealousy may not be the only issue that might cause a new rift between Sansa and Jon. Beginning from the Battle of the Bastards, Sansa and Jon have had trust issues with each other. This may well carry over to Game of Thrones Season 7.
“I think Sansa trusts Jon to make morally right decisions, but I’m not sure if she trusts him with the kind of political things. She knows he means it more about her than it is him talking about himself. And he really needs to trust her,” Sophie explains Sansa’s standpoint.
Sansa’s actions reveal her trust issues. She secretly sent a raven to Littlefinger for the Knights of the Vale and kept dubious Littlefinger by her side. Sansa may just find Littlefinger more trustworthy than Jon Snow in Game of Thrones Season 7.
“I don’t think she’s gunning for the Iron Throne anytime soon, but she realizes that Littlefinger might be a better ally than she thought, a more trustworthy ally than she thought,” Sophie Turner reveals.
