It's about dang time Sansa Stark took charge on "Game of Thrones," but maybe we should worry that she's riding down Mad Queen Cersei Road.
"Game of Thrones" Season 7 is now filming, and HBO just shared three brief shots from the new season, including one of Sansa. Actress Sophie Turner talked to Entertainment Weekly about her character's future, and it sounds slightly worrisome. Sansa finally took down Ramsay Bolton in Season 6, but apparently her newfound power is going to her head:
"She's seemingly in control for the first time – and it really suits her. She's kind of having a bit of a power trip. But she's also becoming more insecure, because there are threats to the power that she holds."
Power trip? Insecure? Ugh. Not what we wanted to hear. By the way, what power? Jon was declared King in the North at the end of Season 6, even though he doesn't even seem to want any power. Does he give Sansa control of Winterfell? Does she fight Jon for a larger slice of the Northern pie? Can we officially start calling her Queen in the North, or just stick with Beyoncé in the North?
Turner said what excites her about Season 7 is that "main characters are coming together and it feels like things are ramping up. It's really exciting and all feels like it's coming to a big conclusion."
Sadly, that big conclusion will be here before we know it. Seasons are traditionally 10 episodes, but Season 7 will only have seven, and the final Season 8 is expected to have even fewer. But it is exciting to think of the characters all coming together in Westeros and building to some kind of massive end game. Let's just hope Sansa's power trip doesn't get in her own way before the series finale.
