Why Sansa Stark’s Dress From Last Night’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Was The Most Perfect Costume Choice Of All Time

By Rosie Narasaki,

Sansa’s done more than learn from her captor/torturer/style icon Cersei: It looks like the student has surpassed the master. Because remember when Oberyn Martell told Tyrion how Cersei had tried and failed at emotional manipulation with him? Well, Sansa just categorically won all the emotional manipulation awards ever on Sunday’s episode — and she made sure to dress accordingly.

After almost three full seasons of being a powerless hostage, Sansa’s finally talking back. We first saw a glimpse of it a few weeks ago when she tearfully told Aunt Lysa that Littlefinger hadn’t tried anything with her (and he hadn’t… yet) — she used her admittedly tragic past to her advantage to convince Aunt Lysa that she had no designs on him.

And this week, she takes it a step further, conflating truth and fiction so very seamlessly that she’s able to successfully convince a whole panel of suspicious Eyrie elders of Littlefinger’s innocence. It’s a masterful move (both by Sansa herself and actor, Sophie Turner), and her calculated, through-crocodile-tears-look at Littlefinger shows us that she’s playing with the big leagues now.

Her subsequent scene with him (“I know what you want”) adds feathers (no pun intended) to her cap, and her dress clinches it. Sansa’s always been a survivor, but this is a dress that lets us know she’s playing the infamously life-or-death game of thrones for keeps.

Sure, it’s unfortunate that the ever-creepy Littlefinger is the ally she chooses, but at least we know she’s making very calculated risks — because it’s not blind loyalty or even fear that drove her to save him, but an aptitude for self-preservation and manipulation that we only wish her mom and dad had. And it’s this Maleficent-worthy dress that seals the deal — or rather, puts the nails in the coffins of her enemies.

It’s the perfect marriage between character development and costuming. Major props to the Game of Thrones costume department for creating the dress of the season (it even beats Dany’s post-Daario dress, and Margaery’s roses-and-thorns wedding dress, IMHO). It’s a character-defining dress that has rightfully taken over Twitter, Tumblr, and just about every GoT recap, ever — and I’m sure we’ll be seeing it on scores of future cosplayers to come.

But, you have blood on your hands
And I know it’s mine

Lady Stark. She died.

And thus it was. A fourth age of middle-earth began. And the fellowship of the ring… though eternally bound by friendship and love… was ended. Thirteen months to the day since Gandalf sent us on our long journey… we found ourselves looking upon a familiar sight. We were home. How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on… when in your heart you begin to understand… there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend… some hurts that go too deep… that have taken hold. Bilbo once told me his part in this tale would end… that each of us must come and go in the telling. Bilbo’s story was now over. There would be no more journeys for him… save one. My dear Sam. You cannot always be torn in two. You will have to be one and whole for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be and to do. Your part in the story will go on.
