Trouble is coming.
Just as Kit Harington promised, right from the start of “Game of Thrones” Season 7 there’s tension between Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Harington’s Jon Snow.
The eldest Stark daughter almost immediately questions Jon’s decisions in front of the Northern lords. Sansa argues for breaking up the lands of the Northern houses that betrayed the Starks and fought for Ramsay Bolton by giving their castles to loyal families. But Jon, nobly yet also kind of stupidly, is like, “Nah, they cool,” and just makes their kids pledge loyalty to House Stark.
Now, it seems subtle details in the show are hinting that even darker times could lie ahead for the siblings.
In a private chat after the meeting with the Northern houses, Sansa implores Jon to listen to her and not make the same dumb mistakes their father Ned and brother Robb made. Just then, Jon gets a raven with a threatening note from Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and, again, doesn’t listen to Sansa.
It’s during this scene that we noticed something peculiar.
Hair … take another look:
The ’do is very similar to many of Cersei’s looks from earlier episodes. (Cersei’s image above is taken from Season 3, Episode 1).
We weren’t the only ones who noticed. Some Twitter users picked up on the similarities, too.
Turner already revealed in an interview with Refinery 29 that Sansa’s hair reflects the “people she’s learning from, or mimicking, or inspired by.”
The fact that she’s channeling Cersei while having a disagreement with Jon is pretty unnerving, especially considering she just said that she’s “learned a great deal” from a woman who always finds a way of murdering her enemies.
(Oh, Snow she didn’t!)
Is Sansa becoming the new Cersei? Does this foreshadow a dangerous animosity between the pair? Is there only one hairstylist in Westeros?
All valid questions. Whatever the answers are, it seems like Jon Snow’s about to find himself in a hairy situation.
