Comic-Con: ‘Game of Thrones’ panel discusses Sansa’s and Arya’s tough times.

Just like in the series itself, the “Game of Thrones” panel at Comic-Con International did not shy away from controversial topics and the terrible things that tend to happen to those of House Stark. Her “Game of Thrones” castmates scowled, crossed their arms and leaned back in their chairs. “I was wondering,” he said, “why you thought it was, sorry I’m not like putting you on the spot, I’m sorry if I’m putting you on the spot…” The actors were on stage at San Diego’s Comic-Con 2015 for just over 20 minutes, and it was about time someone brought it up: “Thrones’” controversial portrayal of rape and brutality. For Turner, Sansa displays a different type of strength and a different method of fighting than some of the other Starks (which is probably why she is one of the few remaining Starks in the series). “I think Sansa has gone through a lot, but she has developed skills,” said Turner. “She’s still just as strong as she was before [the rape]. What she’s been doing this whole time, this whole series, is she’s been just getting by [to survive].” “[Sansa] could’ve fought back if she wanted to,” Turner said. “But she didn’t.

One highly likely theory is that Melisandre, who is back at Castle Black, will channel the Lord of Light and revive Jon, and perhaps with such a level of skill that he will still be a fully functional hunky warrior rather than a shell of a man as with previous resurrectees. While in the books George RR Martin left it hanging in the books, it would appear that Jon Snow is pretty much dead in the show based on what Director David Nutter told at Comic-Con in San Diego, California.

You didn’t need an HBO subscription to hear about it: The backlash echoed online, on the Twitter page of a prominent senator and on the front page of the New York Times. She’s one of those characters that does her scheming in her mind.” When asked by a fan about Sansa’s relationship with Theon going forward, Turner said that that was something they were trying to figure out all season (even before his witnessing her rape, she does think he murdered her brothers). In the past season that concluded last month, fans saw the leaders of the realms of the mythical Westeros continue fighting wars for the Iron Throne, with shocking moments, including a brutal rape, burning a child, the rise of the zombie-like army of White Walkers, and a fire-breathing dragon. Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, spoke about her character’s rape by the villainous Ramsay Bolton, a scene that divided fans and critics, who felt the show may have gone too far. “There’s one thing that Sansa still is, despite what’s happened to her, which is strong,” said Turner.

Perhaps, as the audience member tried to suggest, it was the way Turner’s strong-willed character didn’t fight back as the cameras panned to another character standing by. Executive producer Carolyn Strauss addressed criticism that the show puts its female characters through torturous scenes, saying it was fitting for the time period of the show. “At that mythical time when the show takes place, things were not great for a lot of people, male and female,” she said. This should put a rest to all the rumours, and kill all hope especially for those who had got all excited after Kit Harington had been spotted at Wimbledon still sporting the GoT hairstyle.

I really don’t know why … they focused on Theon, because I was giving a great performance.” “She’s not stupid, she didn’t just think, ‘Alright then this is going to happen,’” Turner told the audience. “She thought it through in her head. Seth Meyers, who was moderating the panel, intervened, trying to lighten the mood by joking that one woman was reading off a notepad and the other off a cell phone.
