Will 'Game of Thrones' finale mark Sansa Stark's arrival at King's Landing to rule the seven kingdoms?

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) has had an incredible journey on HBO's 'Game of Thrones'. From a bratty girl who saw the world through pink-tinted glasses to becoming the level-headed lady of the North, Sansa's character evolution has been impressive. However, she remains the only key player in 'Game of Thrones' to actually stay away from all the action – well, she and her protector Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie).

She tried her best to convince her brother/cousin Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) from going to King’s Landing to serve the purpose of the Dragon Queen (Emilia Clarke). She was, in all probability, not informed about Arya’s (Maisie Williams) decision to ride South, and Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) basically goes on his wargic journeys more often than not, leaving her, yet again, family-less.

Despite the horrible memories associated with King’s Landing, Sansa may, therefore, make the journey South again just in time for the series finale – if only to be in the middle of all the action, or maybe even to find a spot on the Iron Throne. If anyone on the show is worthy of ruling the seven kingdoms, it is her.

Among all the people on the show, Sansa Stark has the most impressive journey on 'Game of Thrones' (Twitter)

She was used as a pawn by many political leaders, married off to a man twice her age, sold off to a sadist by the man she trusted and raped repeatedly by her abusive husband. However, she overcame all that to find her rightful spot as the Lady of Winterfell last season. She took charge of the affairs in the North and united the people there, showing great leadership qualities.


She aptly told Lord Baelish (Aidan Gillen) just before Arya slit his throat, "I'm a slow learner, it's true, but I do learn." She proved this multiple times over, when she advised Jon in the Battle of the Bastards on how Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) will play dirty or when she leaked the one piece of information that made Daenerys' claim to the throne invalid – and she did it in a way she knew would hinder everything Danny had worked for.

Her prediction about both Ramsay and Daenerys came true, and the latter is now all set to sit on the Iron Throne after burning down an entire city. Sansa may come there just to take Danny down, and become the queen that the people of Westeros deserves. She is a leader and a strategist and has all the right resources to become a great queen.

Don't forget to catch the highly anticipated series finale of 'Game of Thrones' which airs on Sunday, May 12, at 9 pm, only on HBO.
