This news contains spoilers for the latest episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 .
During “The Last of the Starks,” episode 4 of Game of Thrones Season 8, you had the opportunity to watch more tragic moments, comic scenes and it was still possible to witness the origin of more memes.
The presence of a Starbucks cup in Winterfell is giving way, but Sansa Stark continues to garner the attention of fans, thanks to scenes where she reveals that she is no longer the innocent young woman who traveled to King’s Landing.
In the latest episode, Sansa Stark heard a secret that could shake all Westeros and completely change the direction of the confrontation between Daenerys and Cersei, a secret he swore not to reveal.
Contrary to what was asked of her, Sansa revealed the secret and became a meme among the fans, who remember how her father managed to keep this secret, even staining his honor, while his daughter did not hold it for 5 minutes.

However, this could have a much greater impact by the end of the series.
As explained by the main people in charge of the series, from 3:17 minutes in the video below, when Sansa reveals the secret that was told to him, related to Jon Snow, she proves to have become a master in the art of manipulating.
Sansa knew perfectly well what she was doing and why she did it, continuing the tradition of the series in keeping alive the “Game of Thrones” that Cersei throws from the first Season.
“Something that anyone who gets this information realizes is how incendiary this information is,” says DB Weiss.
“Sansa has a very difficult decision because she promises Jon that she will never tell anyone, but when she is on that wall with Tyrion she knows what will happen if she tells this information to Tyrion.”
“She is an apprentice to Little Finger and knows how the information travels and succeeds, like Little Finger, to think many steps ahead of the game and knows that if you tell Tyrion, it will be almost impossible for him not to tell Varys and this is things which passed through Sansa’s mind between the time he receives the information and passes it. “
Since the beginning of Season 8 that Sansa has proven to be able to predict the actions of the enemies and reveals how much life has taught him, this is just the latest demonstration of how he already knows how to play the “Game of Thrones”.
However, Sansa’s role in anticipating the next steps in this war between Daenerys and Cersei could position her as a far more important character than you think.
Since new Cersei lives in fear of a prophecy that has so far been confirmed, such as the death of her children. However, there is a part of the prophecy that has not yet been fulfilled – the arrival of a young woman, more beautiful, who would take the crown and everything she adores.
Daenerys has been touted as this possible young man who will take the place of Cersei, but this episode 4 of Game of Thrones Season 8 may have been the definitive step to position Sansa as this young lady of prophecy.
Sansa is an apprentice of Little Finger and Cersei herself has proved to be an astute player of this Game of Thrones and has kept his head when around him seems to reign the emotion. Sansa does not let her heart interfere with reason and seems to be an improved version of Cersei, something that could make her an unexpected candidate for the Iron Throne.
