Sophie Turner Talks About Jon and Sansa on Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones: Sansa and Jon's Dynamic Is About to Shift, but Not in a Creepy Way

The notoriously tight-lipped Game of Thrones cast kept a lid on any and all season seven spoilers during their panel at Comic-Con, but Sophie Turner did manage to do a little foreshadowing. But first, the actress addressed the question we all had watching the penultimate episode of season six: why doesn't Sansa tell Jon about Littlefinger's army?

"That's what I was wondering too. Sansa didn't tell Jon because she wanted all the credit, and it was more dramatic moment when they showed up, and it made for really good television."

OK, it wasn't quite the answer we craved, but that is interesting. What's more intriguing, however, is what Turner said about Sansa's impression of Jon. Turns out, Sansa doesn't have a ton of faith in his ability to rule.

"I don't know about the Iron Throne. I think she believes it was probably more of a joint effort in terms of the Battle of the Bastards. She thinks they should both be king and queen of the North for sure. I'm not sure about the Iron Throne. I'm not sure she's so keen on that anymore. I'm not sure she believes that Jon is capable of running Winterfell. I think she thinks he doesn't have the intellect, the knowledge, the experience that she has, and I concur. She knows he has wonderful morals and those Stark morals that inevitably he'll make the right decision — or the good decision — but whether it's going to benefit anyone is another story."

Way harsh, Tai. Of course, someone had to ask about the possibility of Jon and Sansa getting together (in a more-than-cousins sort of way), since incest isn't altogether uncommon on Game of Thrones.

"Jon likes redheads, he does. But Sansa and Jon have grown up together, they may as well be siblings. They have that sibling rivalry. I don't know, but I swear to god Dave [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], if you make anything happen, I'll kill you."

So here's what we can deduce: Jon and Sansa had a lovely reunion, but things are about to change between them. No, they're not about to get romantic, you weirdo.
