Sophie Turner Thinks Game of Thrones Finale Will Divide Fans
All the cryptic things the Game of Thrones cast has been saying about the final season are just confusing us, honestly, but Sophie Turner is here to give us some straight up information: We will all disagree on the ending.
While we were expecting the series finale to be "bittersweet" as George RR Martin himself has teased, this bold statement from Turner has got us scared. Kit Harington has already revealed the show's ending will not make everyone happy, and Turner—who plays Sansa Stark—seems to agree.
"I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying—I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines—to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us," Turner told IGN of the ending. "Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans."

"I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon," the 22-year-old actress elaborated. What could possibly happen to our people of Westeros that will actually divide us as fans? Could it be a major character's death? Or maybe everyone dies?
Continuing on about what we can expect from season eight, Turner said that Sansa will take "ownership over who she is and what she stands for."
"Over the course of the series she’s been completely unaware of what she wants, where she wants to be, who she really is, and at the end of this season, I feel she is the most self-assured character in the show," she added. And as Maisie Williams has just revealed the final season will be big for the female characters, we believe Turner.
Hopefully we'll see the final season be big for all the characters, whether we agree on the ending or not, when Game of Thrones returns in the first half of 2019.
