Jon Snow and Sansa Stark will butt heads in “Game of ThronesSeason 7. Kit Harington revealed that there will be tension and rivalry between the siblings in the upcoming season.

Sansa Stark and Jon Snow battles over power

Harington was doing the rounds promoting the new season when he briefly talked about his character, Jon Snow’s fate in the new season. Now that Jon is the new King of the North, there is bound to be tension between him and his sister Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). After all, Jon is merely the bastard son (believed to be) and Sansa is the true heir to the throne.

“There is definite tension between them right from the first scene,” Harington said as quoted by The Express. Sansa does not seem to like how Jon Snow leads their people. She “questions his decisions and command” and he, on the other hand, does not listen to her. Harington declined to reveal if this tension and sibling rivalry progresses further or gets darker. He confirmed though, that it gets past beyond sibling squabbling and turns into two people struggling over power.

Season 7 ends in an epic climax

Harington went on to reveal that "Game of Thrones" Season 7 has a faster pace compared to the previous seasons. This is because the installment has fewer episodes so everything builds up quickly and “speeds up towards a dangerous climax.A lot of stuff collides and happens much much quicker than you’re used to seeing on Thrones — it was a plodding slow machine and it’s now turning into a thriller,” he added.

Sophie Turner talks Sansa Starks dark transformation

Harington’s confirmation about the tension between Sansa and Jon Snow came after Turner talked about her character’s fate in “Game of ThronesSeason 7. She revealed in a previous interview that Sansa takes a dark path in the installment following Jon’s proclamation as the new King of the North.

Turner revealed that the eldest of the Stark sisters feels a bit jealous that the people voted Jon over her. Sansa feels that she deserves the throne. After all, she helped Jon win the Battle of the Bastards.

However, contrary to what Harington said, Sansa is not after the power to lead their people. Instead, she is after her brother’s respect, which she feels she is not getting. Regardless, Turner revealed that Sansa becomes a different person in “Game of Thrones" Season 7. She becomes strong and steely, which adds to the tension between her and Jon Snow.
