Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon place the utmost importance on the institution of family. While House of Dragons focuses right on the Targaryen family, the Starks are arguably the most important family on Game of Thrones. They live in northern Westeros and their history is characterized by tragedy and eventual triumph.
Arya, Sansa, Bran, and their half-Targaryen/half-Stark cousin – Jon Snow – survived until the end of Game of Thrones. While the Starks, especially, Jon and Sansa were not always on good terms, they learned to get along no matter what. Their relationship has stood the test of time and fans on Twitter have a lot to say about them.
Although Jon’s gloomy demeanor is frequent on Thrones, there are a few moments where he smiles happily. Twitter poster @TvKhaleesi rightly pointed out that Jon in ‘Book of the Stranger’ is “…just happy to be with one of his brothers again…”
The episode saw Jon and Sansa kiss after years of separation. The two finally met in Season 6 after most of their family was wiped out and Sansa escaped from Ramsay Bolton. Jon was glad his sister was safe with him, and his smile told it.
Twitter poster @toomuchtelly rightly points out the difference between Jon’s short-term thinking and Sansa’s long-term thinking, saying, “…what’s the point of living when all you have left is a hunger for power that is tyrannical.” Jon is a stranger to Westerosi politics, Sansa, on the other hand, learns from Cersei Lannister, who is known for hatching some of the most devious plans in Game of Thrones.
While Jon wants Sansa to understand that Daenerys is their last attempt at survival, Sansa wants the North to become an independent kingdom. This tweet sums up the contrast between Jon and Sansa’s leading methods and the tension that arose because he bent the knee to the Dragon Queen.
War of the Bastards
Season 6’s “Battle of the Bastards” is home to one of Game of Thrones’ most iconic scenes — aka the sequence that sees Jon’s forces battle the Bolton’s army outside Winterfell.
The episode ends with Stark winning, and the consequences are dire as Sansa watches as Ramsay is devoured by her dogs. The @LordSnow Twitter poster uses actual footage of actors Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) to nicely emphasize that when the Stark siblings, Jon and Sansa come together, they restore the House Stark in his former glory, and then agreed to enter into a relationship based on trust.
The highlight of “Book of the Stranger” for the House Stark fanbase is watching the emotional meeting between Jon and Sansa. They paid tribute to the scene with touching words, for example, Twitter poster @JBomb11 happily said, “…rewind and watch Jon and Sansa together again – come back.” »
The reunion hug is heartbreaking as it marks a turning point in Sansa and Jon’s lives. Jon became closer to the other Stark children than Sansa, who in turn treated him well. Simply put, Jon-Sansa found a place in fans’ hearts because it ended the duo’s emotional disconnect.
“Book of the Stranger” is home to a tearful reunion that sees a troubled Sansa and her brother Jon reunited at Castle Black. This particular tweet from the @WiCnet poster nicely pays tribute to the “happiest partnership…” and most satisfying Game of Thrones.
Sansa wasn’t very friendly with Jon growing up and in fact the first thing she did after the settlement was to apologize to him. The brothers are reunited after years of misery and this tweet is a perfect throwback to one of GoT’s happiest times.
The Sansa–Daenerys rivalry
The Game of Thrones season 8 premiere sowed the seeds for a Sansa-Daenerys rivalry centered around Jon. Interestingly, the feud that can be summed up with the help of some good Daenerys memes from Game of Thrones also spawned this interesting tweet.
Twitter user @LuvNikita1 pointed out the discomfort Jon felt at the sight of Sansa’s passive-aggressive conflict during the small council meeting. He disapproves of Sansa’s open challenge to their queen, and feels uncomfortable when she boldly asks, “What do dragons eat?” Jon wants Sansa to put aside their petty squabbling and realize that they need Dany’s help to survive.
Jon Vs Ramsay
During the last episode of Battle of the Bastards, Ramsay left the farm to hide in Winterfell. Jon caught up with him and beat him badly until he saw Sansa and stopped.
Twitter poster @zac_comics marveled at the moment, and they said, “Jon just fought Ramsay and he got revenge for what he did to his sister Sansa…” They’re right because Jon and Ramsay’s confrontation is pretty awesome -an for the House. Stark fanbase who want revenge for Sansa’s terrible negotiated marriage to him.
During their first conversation after the reunion, Sansa encouraged Jon to take Winterfell from Ramsay. He continued to refuse stating that he had no army and the Wildlings he had recruited would not have served him in his cause.
Twitter poster @klerolajn rightly points out that it was Sansa who helped Jon realize that they needed to take back their home from the traitor Ramsay and avenge the Red Wedding. Write, “…chance [sic] given by jon [sic] a goal..” they explained that Jon only became King in the North when Sansa came on the scene and pushed him to fight for them.
Jon is very protective of his sisters and does everything to save them from the dangers of Westerosi politics. To that end, he goes to war to reclaim Winterfell and warns the wily Petyr Baelish to stay away from Sansa.
Jon wants to save his sisters from cruel tyrants and his protective instincts are exactly what the @GoT_Tyrion poster tweet is all about. Jon and Sansa’s bond took an interesting turn towards the end of Thrones and blossomed beautifully over time.
Twitter poster @iamkristinmari recalled the exciting moment the sister duo reclaimed House Stark back in the day, writing, “… tears in my eyes watching that specific scene in GOT where it was restored by Jon and Sansa are House Stark.” »
The Bolton Banners were replaced by the Stark Banners at the end of the Battle of the Bastards. His ending is important because Jon and Sansa realize that they must trust each other and that the restoration of Stark rule in the North inevitably means social justice for the common people.
