Finally, two Starks were reunited on Game of Thrones since their family’s troubles began in season 1. Jon Snow was just preparing to leave Castle Black when Sansa arrived, just in time for dinner. Sophie Turner tells EW that it was one of her favorite scenes in the show:

“It’s such an emotional moment. She finally made it to Castle Black. And there’s this look where they’re just studying each other’s faces, with no expression. Then there’s this long embrace. It’s just awesome.. I’m most excited for the fact I get to see Kit and get to act with him. Kit is one of my best mates and we had just one scene together in the pilot, where we’re waiting on the king. It’s like working with an older brother. I’ve watched his work over the past four years and I think he’s amazing. He’s so focused and dedicated.”


Sansa wants to raise an army and reclaim Winterfell whereas Jon feels kind of done with all the fighting. Though the reunion was marred with inner conflicts and previous sibling rivalry, Turner emphasizes that Sansa is not like her mother when it comes to her behaviour towards Jon:

“People can kind of assume that Sansa’s very much like her mother and her mother wasn’t very fond of Jon.. But Sansa is also different from her mother so she tries her best.. She’s been through so much. She knows Jon is her older brother and Davos is older and wiser, but she’s probably been through more than both of them. She’s not just going to go along with other people’s decisions.”
