The makers of the fantasy drama Game of Thrones recently dropped a new teaser and announced the premiere date – 14 April.
‘Winter is coming’ and the fans of the TV show are in full Game of Thrones swing. Every teaser brings in an opportunity for the fans to dig up the clues and put together some new theories.
The makers have often hidden tip-offs in the attires, accessories and hairstyles of the characters, and they have evolved throughout the show, supporting the character development in the story.
After HBO released the latest teaser of the show, fans once again noticed a change in Sansa Stark’s hairstyle. And a GOT fan can never be unbothered by such hints. Hence, Twitter was flooded with pictures comparing Sansa and Daenerys hairstyles.
However, this isn’t the first time when the ‘naive’ Sansa Stark was seen donning the hairstyle of the powerful people around her. Throughout the seven seasons of the show, she has switched her hairdos and in a show where even a speck of dust means something, this is a noteworthy change.
When she moved to King’s Landing and became a prisoner of Cersei Lannister, she wore her hair in a huge halo similar to the latter.
We saw her as the queen of Winterfell temporarily, at that time, she again went back to wearing her hair like the queen, Cersei.
In a scene where Sansa talks to Jon Snow about Cersei destroying her enemies, the latter even said, “You almost sound as if you admire her.”
To which she replies, “I learned a great deal from her.”
Now, the fans think its Daenerys Targaryen whom Sansa has drawn her latest inspiration. Sansa’s hair in the teaser is similar to how the Mother of dragons wears hers.
In the short clip of the two meeting in Winterfell which released earlier, Sansa welcomes Dany with a heaviness in heart and says, “Winterfell is your, your grace.”
It almost made the fans believe that a feud between the two is what we would witness in the upcoming season.
We have watched Sansa Stark turning into an influencer than getting influenced. After coming such a long way, and creating her own identity, a faction of fans believes she wouldn’t go back.
A Twitter user even pointed out that Sansa’s hairdo is actually inspired by Lynna Stark, her aunt.
Recently, in an interview to In Style, Sophie Turner opened up about the symbolism of her hair in Game of Thrones. “It’s true, there’s definitely a correlation. For so long, Sansa’s hair changed season by season depending on who was influencing her. The first few episodes she was a Northerner in Winterfell and took after her mother with a simple braid down the back. Then when she went to King’s Landing it was a big, decadent halo that was very much like what the Queen wore. With Littlefinger, she dyes her hair black and wears all black. Then she goes back to Winterfell and returns to her mother’s hair. She created her own identity in season 7 and that kind of runs through to season 8. She’s chosen how she wants her hair to be, and she’s finally the leader and influencer instead of being influenced by everyone else,” she said.
Based on George RR Martin’s novels, Game of Thrones is about the thrilling quest to claim an Iron Throne in a fictional medieval universe. The engrossing high-fantasy tale is counted among the highest rated shows in television history.
The final season of Game of Thrones will be aired in April on Star World.
