Game of Thrones season 7: what Sansa’s continued survival means for the future of Westeros



While everyone else squabbles over crowns, Sansa is feeding refugees....


The seventh season of 'Game of Thrones' ends tomorrow so the fans are asking so many questions and this includes Sansa' future in Westeros.

I love the woman that Sansa Stark has grown to become. Sansa has relied on strategic passivity for survival. Over seven seasons, GoT fans have seen Sansa outlast characters with more strength, more power, and more weaponry, again and again.

 Sansa’s survival is particularly unusual among the characters because throughout the show, she’s chosen to utilize a kind of strategic passivity rather than taking an active role in the power grabs and machinations around her.

She accepts help when offered and she makes people take revenge for her without actually getting her hands dirty.

Sansa has never used Littlefinger's attraction to her to manipulate him. When she asks for his help in the Battle of the Bastards, she reminds him of his long-ago promise, recalled in “The Door,” to protect her — a promise he broke when he delivered her into the hands of the Boltons. She promises him nothing in exchange for his help.

It’s this strategic lack of strategy that’s allowed Sansa to keep Littlefinger in her sights and in check for most of Game of Thrones’ seventh season. Sansa uses traditionally feminine traits of passive acceptance, appeasement, and tactics of mediation in order to stall her enemies, delay action, and divert attention from herself. In the game of thrones, Sansa plays by refusing to play, again and again.

Sansa Stark loves being the leader. Did you see her expression when Jon said that he was handing over power to her ?

Maybe Sansa might continue to be the 'Queen of the North' since Jon will probably be fighting with Daenerys for the throne since he is the rightful heir.

Bible Quote Of The Day

Happy Sunday guys..
Today's Bible quotation shall be taken from 1 John 1:9..

So Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon) Pulled A Fast One On His Fans Just For The Ratings?

A week before the season finale of the  'Empire' drama series, one of it's lead actors', Jussie Smollett who plays Jamal Lyon took to twitter to announce that he will be leaving the series..

 Fans were sad and angry. Some of them threatened to stop watching the show if they killed Jamal Lyon off..Jamal was shot by Freda Getz in the 17th episode and that even got people to believe Jussie was leaving the series because his chances of survival after the shot was very minimal.

So we all waited for the final episode and here was Jamal lyon , alive and healthy..Fans were happy and shocked as well.

My question is; why should you lie to your fans just for the ratings?
