who do you think sansa is going to end up with, if anyone at all?
I think the show and the books could have different answers. I personally think that in the show, she will either end up alone or marrying someone we don’t even know yet. Her love interests in the show are/were:
- Joffrey (dead and abusive and the Lannisters completely shunned her anyway)
- Ramsay (dead and let’s not even)
- Loras (dead and isn’t into girls)
- Tyrion (alive, with Dany, and their relationship in the show was actually quite sweet but I think there’s no chance they’ll end up together. If they meet again I think they’d be completely civil and just happy one another are alive.)
- Petyr (alive and they have a complicated relationship…lmao. I agree with @kingpetyr‘s theory though, which is that more or less Sansa manipulates him by giving him what he wants: sex. And then she kills him. Because he deserves it.)
I’ll get onto others when we get to the books but yeah.
Those I cross off the list…so who’s left? I do think that marrying Jon is an interesting theory, but…there’s a lot of reasons it’s unrealistic. I’m not going to delve into them. I like the ship but I don’t think it’ll ever be canon. Assuming she kills Petyr in S7 (which seems likely)…she’s out of current/past love interests (in show canon, anyway). So I think that for S7 and S8 we will see Sansa taking up some or much of the responsibilities of ruling the North for a while. She may have suitors but I think she has other stuff on her mind lmao.
So in show canon? No. I don’t think we’ll see her get married
again. (Maybe eventually, but years down the line, should she survive.) However, if she reunites with Sandor it may be very very loosely open to interpretation. We’ll never get a kiss (in the show) but like a scene or two between them would be nice, though I don’t totally count on it. They didn’t build up a romantic relationship between them at all in the show, they focused on building up Sansa and Petyr from the very beginning. It makes sense for the purposes of the show though.
For the books, however…let’s do another little list (note that I haven’t read all of ASOIAF yet okay don’t crucify me BUT):
Joffrey X Tyrell Tyrion Harry Petyr(will suffer a similar fate to show!Petyr)
Again…I’m not 100% if she will end up with Sandor. From what I’ve gathered, though, he is the most romantic, mutual love she has experienced in book!canon (not to say there weren’t sexual bits or unhealthy bits or whatever but that isn’t the point). She thinks of him rather frequently. She made up a kiss with him that never fucking happened. Sandor thinks of her as well. She dreams of Sandor in her marriage bed. George R.R. Martin is not subtle and he is a sucker for foreshadowing, as am I. Also George adores the concept of beauty and the beast, and Sansa and Sandor fit this to a tee. I think they will eventually reunite and, well…Sansan was hinted at a lot more in the books than in the show, and a large part of that is because their relationship is not talked about, it is only between them and in her head, which is definitely difficult to translate onto the screen. Sandor is, in the book anyway, what one might call her “true love,” though she learned from the others (from infatuation to platonic love to sexual, manipulative love).
All in all, I think she will end up with Sandor, with someone we don’t know yet (perhaps further down the line), or alone. Most of all, I hope she ends up happy.
