“Even worse than the idea of Sansa needing this to motivate her into vengeance is the notion that the Theon character needed to watch her rape in order to snap out of whatever zombie/Reek fugue state he’s been walking around in. I’m afraid that is the show’s interpretation, based on where the camera lingered. But the last thing we needed was to have a powerful young woman brought low in order for a male character to find redemption. No thank you.”

-Vanity Fair

“Game of Thrones Absolutely Did Not Need to Go There with Sansa Stark”


“Me, Richard, Alfie, and Kit, we sort of rule the young ‘uns for being the exact same age and starting at the same time. We took on this adventure together. It’s quite lovely that we’re all still very much in love with each other. And then obviously, my girl Rose Leslie, who is just the coolest chick on the entire planet. I’m determined - determined! - to be a wildling extra at some point, just to find her and kind of say, 'I’m in Iceland!’, and see what she says. We’re complete geeks, all of us. Of course, each of us thinks we’re the one that’s going to win.” – Emilia Clarke
