People, hate on Sansa because of internalised misogyny. She is mistreated, abused, raped and tortured constantly and yet people call her weak and stupid, blaming her, the VICTIM, of what others do to her. This summarises the whole problem in our patriarchal society. She is the victim. She is not to blame. She is not weak or stupid, she is stronger than many of the male characters in this series and especially than those who that have tortured her so much.
No one really expects all of the Stark kids to survive the last two seasons of Game of Thrones, but that doesn’t mean that a lot of us haven’t been rooting for them since they’ve been dealt blow after blow throughout the series. And now, thanks to the latest Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer, viewers may be more concerned than ever for the Starks’ fates. This is in large part due to Sansa’s quote about a lone wolf dying in her narration at the end of the promo, which could end up signifying that another Stark death is on the horizon.
The Lady of Winterfell
Sansa is so strong, and people think of her so poorly. The girl survived Joffrey for, what, two years? Many people would break down. She survived Ramsay Bolton. RAMSAY BOLTON, guys. She is not like Arya (which everyone adores because she is all about fights) but she is really strong and really brave. I love her. She’s my favourite character in the books and the series.
Her exact words were: “When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.” So what does this mean for the remaining Starks on Game of Thrones? There are only so many left and to be honest, I don’t want to know Westeros without any of them.
Sansa Stark- The Survivor
The obvious lone wolf she may be referring to is, of course, Jon Snow, even if he is part Targaryen. But Jon was raised as Ned’s bastard son and brought up as any other northerner of Westeros and was even proclaimed the King of the North at the end of Season 6. So as of right now, he’s the most accurate “lone wolf” Sansa may have been referring to in her line at the end of the newest Season 7 Game of Thrones trailer.
