While some of the bigger endings in the Game of Thrones finale didn’t sit well with fans, Sansa Stark becoming ruler of her childhood home, Winterfell, as well as the rest of the North, seems to be one of the more widely accepted endings.
The actress who played Sansa, Sophie Turner, can be seen in a featurette that will be included on the Season 8 Blu-Ray speaking about when she first read the script for her character’s final scene. As you might imagine, this brought up all the feels for Turner, as it did for a good number of fans. You can check it out below.

Sansa Stark knew how to play the Game of Thrones better than most. That’s because she learned from two of the best players in Cersei and Littlefinger. Her enemies also underestimated her, foolishly, as we now know. Sansa was definitely a character that had to grow on us.
I find it hard to believe that someone’s favorite character would be the spoiled highborn girl who made us all watch Ned Stark kill a dire wolf because she lied for that (ok, we didn’t actually see it, but would you have wanted to?). Sansa changed immensely from Season 1 to Season 8, all for the better. Her ending was fitting, there must always be a Stark in Winterfell, and Sansa, deservedly, is that Stark.
In case this video slipped passed you last week, here are some deleted scenes from Game of Thrones Season 8.
