In a recent interview with Hero Complex, Sophie held back from revealing any specific details about the new season — this cast really knows how to keep a secret — but she did say this: “There’s a big change for [Sansa] this season and there’s a few familiar faces around.”
Sansa’s story on the show has more or less caught up to where she is in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, so this tease is interesting for everyone.
We’re not sure what the big change is, but we have to wonder if it’s related to Sophie saying Sansa will begin to use her sexuality to manipulate people (well, Littlefinger [Aidan Gillen]) in Season 5. Could the “big change” be losing her virginity? We kind of hope not — Sophie’s 18, but her character is still underage — but it might make sense...
Or maybe with Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) running away from King’s Landing, Littlefinger will declare him as good as dead, and try to marry Sansa off again?
We’re also interested to see what familiar faces she’s talking about. Is it just Littlefinger and Robin Arryan, or will she run into more characters we’ve already met?
