What I love about this and how it works perfectly in to my “Sansa is the next Littlefinger” theory is this: Petyr always believed in the songs. When he challenged Brandon Stark for Catelyn Tulley’s hand, he was supposed to win because the little ones always win in the songs. But the world is not made of songs as Petyr (and now Sansa) found out. We don’t know everything about what horrors Petyr had to endure. We don’t know if it’s as shallow as “he didn’t get the girl” or if he has gone through what Sansa has. Nevertheless, Sansa has witnessed some truly terrible things. And as we see in this gif set…. She just observes, she’s taking it in…. And even if she’s not quite sure what she’s going to do yet, she certainly will not forget that the songs of King’s Landing are lies. And she won’t let the Lannisters forget either…
If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her killer kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it, shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret.
