It looks like Sansa Stark will be grabbing for control during ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7…
When ‘Game of Thrones’ season 6 came to a close, Jon Snow was declared the new King in the North much to the chagrin of Petyr Baelish and possibly to his own sister Sansa Stark, who really played the biggest hand in her family’s rise back to power while defeating House Bolton.
The bold move that Sansa made by asking for help from the Knights of the Vale won the ‘Battle of the Bastards’ and yet her brother still end up as the one sitting on the throne.
That conflict could cause issues in ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7, especially with Sansa Stark getting a taste of power and really liking how that feels.
“She’s seemingly in control for the first time – and it really suits her,” Sophie Turner said about her role in ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7.
“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.”
The shortened seventh season of ‘Game of Thrones’ won’t debut until summer 2017 but the show is expected to bring together a lot of combustable parts before the conclusion.
Current plans are for ‘Game of Thrones’ to run seven episodes for season 7 and then come to a close with six episodes for season 8 in 2018.
According to Turner, the way things have been going with the stories unfolding during season 7, ‘Game of Thrones’ is definitely hurdling towards one, epic finale.
“What overall excites me about this season is that main characters are coming together and it feels like things are ramping up,” Turner said. “It’s really exciting and all feels like it’s coming to a big conclusion.”
‘Game of Thrones’ is still currently filming in several locations around Europe for the seven episode season. There’s no exact date on the release for the season but it’s not expected to return until summer 2017, which likely means June or July.
