Like The Night’s Watch, we’ve pledged our lives to one thing in particular: What might be going on with Sansa Stark’s hair.
In case you’ve been busy with the war in the South and the battle for the Iron Throne, we learned recently that nothing in Westeros happens by accident. Specifically, nothing aboutSansa’s hairstyle in the show is accidental. Rather, as told to Refinery29 by Sophie Turner herself, the eldest Stark daughter’s hair is a reflection of exactly what the character is going through at that time and place.
During the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones only a few weeks ago, some fans were quick to note that, during a discussion between Jon and his sister about Cersei, Sansa’s hair was pretty reflective of what the current Queen of the
Seven Three Kingdoms’ hair was like during Season 3.
Of course, in that episode we saw Sansa begin to exert hair control a little more, as she showcased that she’s no longer going to be cast aside.
And now, fans have realized that during Game of ThronesSeason 7 episode three, “The Queen’s Justice,” Sansa Stark’s hair was reminiscent of another lady of Westeros.
The lady in question, in fact, is none other than Catelyn Stark.
“OK I know everyone thought Sansa is styling her hair like Cersei but this week it really looked like Cat’s to me #GameOFThrones,” one user suggested on Twitter.
“Not sure why people keep comparing Sansa to Cersei when she’s the spitting image of Catelyn Stark. #GameOfThrones,” argued another.
Someone even joined up to Sansa’s Hair Watch to report their findings.
One user on Tumblr also noted the strange similarities between Ned Stark and Catelyn talking in Season 1, and Bran and his sister talking in GoT‘s latest episode.
Now, as we know Sansa Stark’s hair reflects the mood she’s in, the feelings she’s feelings, or what she’s actually experiencing. So, if we put on our detective hats a bit, we *could* suggest that her hair was similar to her mother’s because she’s finally back home mothering the people of Winterfell.
Indeed, in the episode we did see the character marching around, giving orders, and even looking after Bran (who, might we add, didn’t seem all that excited to see his sister again after all that has happened).
However, we’re wondering whether this new hairstyle could actually be a warning about Lord Petyr Baelish, aka Littlefinger. As we know, he’s been creepin’ around Winterfell like a bad smell, and he is *not* to be trusted in the slightest (in fact, are any of the Starks aware that it’s because of his treachery that Ned Stark was captured and killed by the Lannisters?). We dearly hope that the eldest Stark daughter won’t end up the same way as her mom!
