‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Will Be The Best Yet For Sansa Stark

Looks like the transformation may finally be complete this season. At least, that’s what it sounds like.

Out of practically every other character on Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner’s Sansa Stark has endured one of the largest and most drastic character arcs throughout the past five seasons. Starting off as a doughy-eyed, naive girl looking to fall in love with a prince to a political force of nature – Sansa’s fate, like many of the GoT characters, was left open-ended at the end of last year’s fifth season.

However, it looks like we might finally be getting some answers regarding what happened after her and Reek/Theon jumped off of that Winterfell tower.

While speaking recently with EW, Turner teased Sansa’s role in the upcoming sixth season, promising it to be Sansa’s best season yet:

“It’s probably her best season yet…It’s her really coming into her own. She, this season, really commands the respect that she deserves and she grabs hold of it and she runs with it and it’s really good… [Sansa is] finally getting that storyline that you’ve been craving for the past five seasons.”

As book readers will know, Sansa’s future in the series is basically open to anything at this point, after she ended up taking a much different route in the series than she did in the novels by George R. R. Martin, progressing her story further ahead quite rapidly. Considering Ramsay’s current hold over Winterfell though, it’s hard to say for sure how Sansa will be able to gain the strength and authority that fans have so desperately been wanting her to grab hold of.

Anything’s possible at this point, but could we see a much different Stark than we might have thought rallying the North this season? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Game of Thrones season 6 is set to premiere on HBO on April 24th.
