We’ll never know, but I have to wonder if Arya would break her promise to keep Jon’s identity a secret. If I had a daughter, I know who I would want for a role model.

Sansa has become Littlefinger, and it’s because she has figured out how Joffrey, Cersei, Littlefinger, and Ramsey lied to her and manipulated her. Her suffering at the hands of Ramsey may have made her more ruthless in order to protect herself by securing power by any means.

We’ve seen plot armor protect all the Starks, as the last three seasons have become more and more absurd.

Having Sansa end up ruling Westeros doesn’t break the wheel, but it again breaks the rules set up in GRRM’s world, much to the anger of thousands of fans.
