Warning: spoilers ahead for GOT season 7
Game of thrones has shown the friction between Sansa and Arya Stark since the first season, but the season 7 finale has revealed a new bond between the Stark sisters for plotting the downfall of Petyr Baelish.
Yes! Sansa and Arya Stark wouldn’t plan to kill each other and they’d join together to kill Baelish. It was the biggest and most surprising twist that went unexplained. How did they discover the whole plan of Littlefinger? Good thing Bran Stark is present to elaborate Littlefinger’s shenanigans.
Everything went well and the audience was amazed by the alliance of the sisters until Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) told Variety that they shot a scene that was later cut from the season 7 finale:
“We actually did a scene that clearly got cut, a short scene with Sansa where she knocks on Bran’s door and says, ‘I need your help,’ or something along those lines,” Wright said. “So basically, as far as I know, the story was that it suddenly occurred to Sansa that she had a huge CCTV department at her discretion and it might be a good idea to check with him first before she guts her own sister. So she goes to Bran, and Bran tells her everything she needs to know, and she’s like, ‘Oh, s—.’”
What does that mean? Does it mean that the whole Sansa-Arya tandem is not real?
The cut scene says it all — Little finger almost succeeded in making the sisters fight and kill each other but thanks to the three-eyed raven for always saving the day unless he is the true Night King; however, that is another theory that nobody wishes to happen.
