Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is in an interesting position on Game of Thrones. Having just witnessed her aunt Lysa’s murder at the ends of Littlefinger, what will Sansa do next? She’s the only one who knows the truth about what happened, so will she turn on Petyr? Read on to find out!

So, will Sansa turn on Littlefinger? Nah. He’s really the only friend she’s got left in the world, creepy as he is, and she’s not about to lose him. Unless the show departs widely from the books, she’s going to lie to the Lords Declarant of the Vale (including new characters Bronze Yohn Royce and Anya Waynwood), but we’re not exactly sure what she’ll say. In the books, a singer is present in the room when Littlefinger kills Lysa, and Littlefinger places the blame on him. There was no singer on the show, so we’re guessing that Sansa just says that Lysa tripped.
After that, not a whole lot happens with Sansa. She becomes more of a mother figure to Robyn Arryn, while Littlefinger schemes in the background. Eventually, probably not until next season, Littlefinger arranges a marriage between Sansa (still going by Alayne Stone) and Harry Hardyng, the ward of Anya Waynwood. Harry is a nephew of Jon Arryn, and is the heir to the Vale after Robyn. Littlefinger says that during the marriage, Sansa will reveal her true identity and rule over both the North and the Vale... the only problem with that is, Robyn will have to die first.
