A popular theory about Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) may have just been shut down.
Since the last few episodes of the previous season aired, many viewers have been speculating that at some point in "Game of Thrones" season 7, Sansa will be revealed to be pregnant. This theory was prompted by a statement her late husband Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) said right before Sansa set his dogs on him, essentially murdering the sadistic villain, in the previous season.
"You can't kill me," Ramsay told her. "I'm part of you now," he added.
But she did, thus heralding a new chapter in the life of the embattled Stark daughter. Like her siblings, Sansa's "Game of Thrones" journey has been full of twists and turns. But while Robb (Richard Madden), Arya (Maisie Williams), Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), Rickon (Art Parkinson), and Jon (Kit Harington) have all faced incredibly tough situations, Sansa has had the misfortune of being forced into three awful relationships. She has been betrothed to Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), wed to Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), and then to Ramsay, who raped her on their wedding night.
But while Ramsay finally bit the dust in season 6, rumors have been swelling that Sansa will not be completely rid of him and that she will find herself pregnant with his child in the upcoming season.
Fortunately, a new report by the fan site Watchers on the Wall has debunked this theory. "Last of all, I am enormously happy to report that Watchers on the Wall can put a certain 'theory' to bed," a report on the website read. "If any in our readership believed a certain insistent rumor, the following may be a relief to hear: Sansa will NOT be (or get) pregnant in season seven," it added.
Meanwhile, this week the fansite published photos from the "Game of Thrones" season 7 set in Los Barruecos in Spain. The photos show a massive army of Lannister soldiers either heading to or from Highgarden, the homebase of the Tyrells.
Interestingly, the photos show the Lannisters being joined by forces led by Randyll Tarly (James Faulkner), Sam's (John Bradley-West) father, who is a bannerman of the Tyrells. Will "Game of Thrones" season 7 show the Tarlys betraying the Tyrells in favor of the Lannisters?
"Game of Thrones" season 7 drops sometime in 2017 on HBO.
