Sansa Stark hasn't done too much in Season 7 so far, but fans are picking up on subtle hints that might mean change is coming very soon. In the first two episodes, Sansa has squared off against her brother (cousin) Jon Snow for more power in Winterfell, and actually achieved control of the North in Jon's stead as he went off to meet with Daenerys, but die-hard viewers are worried about the necklace Sansa recently began sporting.
Now that she's finally free from being held captive in one way or another for pretty much the first time ever in the series, Sansa is sporting a new look, but the makeover is a little unsettling for some viewers. After the premiere, fans began noticing Sansa started wearing her hair like Cersei Lannister, and that coupled with Sansa saying she "learned a lot from her" had us worried she was turning into Westeros' ice queen.
But Sansa's hairstyle isn't the only thing that has GOT fans worried she's about to go to the dark side. The new accessory she's been wearing around her neck is very alarming to fans, who have pointed out it looks a lot like the circular necklace with a chain and spike she sported during her badass transformation in Season 4.
Now, although that statement necklace did signal the emergence of a new, powerful Sansa, it was also part of a troubling alliance. It was when Sansa was wearing that necklace she was most closely allied with Petyr Baelish, aka Littlefinger, aka the dude who is creepily obsessed with her. When Jon Snow left Winterfell in Sansa's care last episode, the first thing she did was look over at Littlefinger. Is the necklace a sign Sansa and Littlefinger will team up again while Jon is away? *shudders*
I mean, yeah it sounds like quite a jump to make just based on a piece of jewelry, but Game of Thrones' costume designer Michele Clapton has made it clear Sansa's clothing and styling are always intentional. Obviously, in a show as meticulous about tiny details as Game of Thrones, Sansa's big 'ole necklace means something. Let's just hope it's not another team-up with Littlefinger, or I'm going to need a barf bag.
