'Game of Thrones' fans spot the subtext in Sansa's hair

"You nearly sound as if you admire her", Jon replies. She would rather see innocent children suffer, similar to the way Cersei killed innocent people to take down her enemies in the Season 6 finale. During the first episode, Cersei Lannister appeared into her and Jon's discussions quite a few times. While not the current pixie cut, Sansa does have the small braided knot on the back of her head. For those who do not know her, Lady Stoneheart is actually Catelyn Stark once resurrected, a cold woman who lives only for revenge.

Warning: spoilers ahead for the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones, "Dragonstone". Sansa quickly averts her gaze. Given the show's obsession with such details, this choice of design might not be a coincidence after all.

Surely this comparison doesn't bode well for Sansa. Clearly, if the time ever comes for Sansa to face her former nemesis, Cersei will be unpleasantly surprised with some of the pages the "Little Dove" has taken from her book. Without a doubt, her grandpa, the late Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, Ser Jeor Mormont, would be very proud. This is the moment when Sansa opens the Cersei topic. They both grew up dreaming about the handsome prince they'd marry some day (Rhaegar for Cersei, Joffrey for Sansa), only to forced by men into marriages they didn't want (Robert for Cersei, Tyrion and Ramsay for Sansa). In the end, both of them had their men killed by beasts: a boar and starving hounds. The young Stark doesn't exactly deny the suggestion, making it clear that she certainly learned a lot from the vicious queen.

Game of Thrones Season 7 continues on Sunday at 9/8c on HBO. What will she consider doing next in her relentless quest to eliminate those who have done and would do harm to the Starks? Sansa is just a couple of decades behind Cersei. Not to mention Meera Reed and Brienne (who isn't technically of the North, but serves the Starks) who would gladly remind Cersei of the one lesson she tried to teach Joffrey back in the day: "the North cannot be held and when the winter comes the seven Gods together couldn't save you or your royal army". Is this just the first part of Cersei that she is going to copy? It hasn't been easy, and there are hints that she will become the next Cersei Lannister. And if she should suddenly start targeting enemies the audience does care for - namely children, noble Northern houses, and her own cousin Jon Snow - then viewers may begin to see the young Stark woman in a new, less flattering light.
