Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale: What’s Going to Happen Between Arya and Sansa Stark?
If Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) line from the Game of Thrones season finale promo—the only line in the darned thing—doesn’t leave you shook we need to talk.
“There’s only one war that matters. And it is here,” he says to Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). Everybody’s coming face-to-face this season and it’s truly wonderful and terrifying.
In the trailer, which you can see below, viewers only get a little glimpse of Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) at Winterfell, but something is definitely going to go down between her and sister Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).
“Arya has this piece of very incriminating evidence against Sansa, so she goes looking for it and she doesn’t find it, but she finds a bag full of severed faces instead, which is creepy. And then her sister appearing without any sounds, creepier still, and as they get into the discussion about what these faces are, she starts to see Arya as a real physical danger to her,” executive producer D.B. Weiss said about the scene between the two sisters in the penultimate episode of the season.
“Going into the final episode, I think Sansa is bringing with her a real fear about the idea that Arya might really want to murder her. It’s a fear Littlefinger expertly stokes,” Weiss said.
Ugh, Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen)!
“In the books, it says something about how Arya and Sansa are different sides of the same coin. They love each other but they’re so different. They never really got along. And now that they’re back together that’s heightened because they’ve gone down totally different paths and have had to adapt to totally different situations to the point where they don’t see on each other’s level,” Turner told EW. “They don’t really talk about what they’ve gone through. They never really had that communication before, and now when it’s vital to do they don’t have that and can’t understand each other. Arya still sees Sansa as a snooty prissy child that she was before she left for King’s Landing. There’s a big lack of communication. There’s this underlying tension. It’s like a f–king horror movie.”
Who will take the Iron Throne? We broke it down.
