It’s been a year and a half since the release of final season of Game of Thrones and yet I can’t get over it! The show, it’s characters have been a great influence on me so I thought of writing a blog about my personal views about my favourite characters. What better way to revive the good old memories!
Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones is hated for not for who she is but for what she to did to Aegon Targaryen!
In season one she was a meek little teenager in love with Prince Joffrey. Well that’s how she thought, but in her own heart she was fascinated by the position of being the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Her innocence and insanity drove her almost towards her doom, nevertheless she survived and was eventually crowned the Queen in North.
Her journey from a sweet little teenager who loved sewing to the one who left hounds to feed on alive Ramsay Bolton has been very interesting. I have personally been very fascinated by how the character grew from being so submissive to getting stronger day by day. I have outlined eight dialogues showcasing the essence of her personality.
I would be Queen someday, please make father say yes, please, please, that’s all I ever wanted!A defining moment for Sansa
This scene with Catelyn Stark defined Sansa’s next course of her life. While her mother was trying to calm down the girl, Sansa had already made her decision to spend the rest of her life at King’s Landing.
My father was a traitor, my mother and brothers are traitors too, I’m loyal to my beloved Joffrey.This dialogue has a hidden meaning most people miss
Season two was the most abusive one for Sansa. Death threats followed her every step. She knew she could trust no one. She knew could be easily termed as traitor if she fights back. What she didn’t knew was the whereabouts of her mother, her brothers and Arya. In the whole season, she ended her every sentence with “I’m loyal to my beloved Joffrey”, maybe this was a trick. So that no one could allege her as a traitor. Maybe this was just a trick to survive.
Joffrey, Joffrey did that, he promised me that he’ll be merciful and he cut my father’s head off.Sansa speaks up for the first time.
For the first time in her life Sansa felt her misery would end after Cersei broke her engagement with Joffrey. But Cersei won’t leave her that easily. Meanwhile Sansa was feeling infatuated towards Ser Loras Tyrell. But destiny had different plans for her. She was wedded to Tyrion Lannister. But her time with Tyrion was was more better than Joffrey. He was kind and respectful with her. Times were difficult, she knew any wrong move would cost her head.
I know what you want.Sansa learns to lie
For half of her life Sansa was being viewed by others as a bad liar. Everyone played with her as she was a lifeless doll. But in season four after she fled from the Purple wedding, with the anonymous help from Lord Petyr Baelish, Sansa became more aware of the events happening around her. She knew there was still a threat to her life and Cersei would definitely accuse her for Joffrey’s death. It was from this season she begin to learn the rules to play game of thrones.

After surviving the Lannisters, Sansa falls prey to the Boltons. Lord Baelish had tricked her into his game. Sansa is again tormented by the hysterical Ramsay Bolton. But this time she survives.

Sansa survives the Boltons. She is reunited with Jon Snow in this season. She pledges to take back Winterfell. And she succeeds.
I’m sure cutting off heads is very satisfying but that is not the way you get people to work together.Sansa levels up the game
Lady Sansa now attends to larger issues. She takes up the charge of preparing Winterfell the coming winter. The White Walker’s are soon approaching Winterfell. She must stay strong while Jon Snow approaches Daenerys’s for her help to stop the Army of the dead.

I’m a slow learner, it’s true. But I learn.The epic moment of season eight, Lord Baelish got what he deserved and not what he intended for
Sometimes when I’m trying to understand a person’s motives, I play a little game. I assume the worstSansa didn’t just learnt to the play the game but win it.
