Sophie Turner States The Obvious, Says More ‘Game of Thrones’ Characters Will Die Before Season 8

sansa stark season 7 theory

No show is better at killing characters off than Game of Thrones, and with a majority of the fan-favorite players in relatively good positions following the series’ critically-acclaimed season six finale earlier this year as well, that can only mean bad things to come for fans in the upcoming final two seasons. Aside from them both being unfortunately shorter than usual, anyways.

The show’s main cast members haven’t been shy about teasing some major deaths to come over the past several months either, and while recently speaking with Variety, Sophie Turner talked about bringing the show to an end in the next two years and what fans can expect from the final two seasons:

“It’s quite sad. It really feels like things are wrapping up and coming to an end. People are hanging around Belfast a bit longer to be around each other and be in each other’s presence.”

Both seasons 7 and 8 will be shorter than the previous six as well, but there’s still two more seasons to go for her and most of the other cast members…. or not? Turner added:

“We’ve got one more season…well, not all of us.”

Considering the precarious, ambiguous place that Turner’s Sansa Stark was left in at the end of the sixth season as well, divided between her loyalties to Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Littlefinger, this is some worrying comments. Talking about Sansa’s storyline moving forwards as well, Turner teased:


“You don’t really know what’s going on with her this season. We’re trying to figure out where her loyalties lie and you’re wondering if she is going to pull through and be a true Stark or not.”

It’s a shame that just when Jon and Sansa end up in good, strong places both back in Winterfell as well, that the final look she gave Littlefinger at the end of the last season makes it seem very likely that Sansa’s uncertainty when it comes to Jon’s leadership may very well be what puts them in a dangerous place again. Suffice it to say, Ramsay Bolton may no longer be in Winterfell, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be any less chaotic there moving forwards.

Game of Thrones will return with its seventh season in summer 2017.
