Is Sansa Stark Pregnant With Ramsay Bolton's Child?
It's Wednesday, and I still can't think of anything other than Sunday night's epic "Game of Thrones" episode, "Battle of the Bastards."
The fight sequence at Winterfell was the most epic in "Game of Thrones" history, and the episode delivered in so many ways. Aside from Jon Snow and Sansa Stark recapturing Winterfell and control of the North, "GoT" also provided us with the gruesome Ramsay Bolton death we craved for so long.
The ironic justice of Ramsay Bolton being eaten to death by his own hounds was oddly calming in a way.
However, after the "Battle of the Bastards," it appeared Ramsay was going to be able to inflict torture on Sansa Stark from well beyond the grave.
I'm talking, of course, about Ramsay's apparent confirmation Sansa is indeed carrying his child.
As you can hear in the clip above, Ramsay tells Sansa she can't kill him because he's a part of her now. Combine that line with the graphic rape scene at the end of "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" in season five of "Game of Thrones," and it's not hard to draw the obvious, unfortunate conclusion.
In a recent interview with Refinery29, Iwan Rheon, the actor who played Ramsay Bolton on "Game of Thrones," addressed those specific rumors surrounding Sansa's pregnancy.
Well I think what he means is that, what he's done to her, she won't be able to shake off and he has kind of broken her. In the same way that Theon will never be able to shake Reek off because of the psychological torture and physical torture. By doing all these horrible things to her, he has left his mark on her and therefore he is part of her.
Following that statement, Rheon was asked for specific confirmation Sansa isn't pregnant with Ramsay Bolton's child, to which he replied,
(Laughs) Well unless Ramsay has got an incredible talent of being able to spot pregnant women, then I don't know. I don't know if he has examined her or anything. I have absolutely no idea, so you'll have to just wait until next season to find out. Like me.
Ah! Why must everyone troll "Game of Thrones" fans so hard? I don't know if I can handle the suspense!
