    That's how I took the look. Sansa was pleased that the lords of the North were all uniting behind Jon, and then she looked over at Littlefinger and saw that he was displeased with this turn of events and was probably already working on a plan, and she realized that he was going to be a problem going forward.

    Yep. Even after. The way she explained it made no sense to the way it was depicted. I think the director (maybe through editing) got what he wanted from her, no matter how she may have have intended to play it.

    Uh oh...DreadPirateRob is on my side? I need to re-evaluate my position! :p

    Seriously, though, we can argue about the meaning of a smile and a look all day; but this one - to me - seemed very clear; especially given what we know about the characters.

    Sansa is not power hungry (if she were, she would've melted at LF's offer by the tree). She told Jon many times that he should take over. She repeated the mantra of "trust LF only if your goals intersect; but never trust him even then". We've been shown nothing to indicate that what she said in the interview is possible.

    Don't worry. It won't happen again. :p

    Agreed. And the sequencing of the whole scene doesn't lend itself to the actress' interpretation. Basically, the scene goes like this:

    Group shot: Everyone on their feet shouting "The King of the North!!" over and over.

    Cut to Sansa: subtly starting to smile with a pleased/relieved look starting to dawn on her face as she takes it all in. Then she sweeps her eyes over the crowd, coming to rest on LF, and as she does, the smile that had just started stops immediately.

    Cut to LF: stone-faced, leaning back against the wall. He's been staring at her the whole time. (In fact, if you watch the scene, a few shots before, they show him staring up at her). They lock eyes.

    Cut back to Sansa: smile completely gone now, replaced with a look of growing apprehension, and even a little fear, as she realizes LF is going to be a problem.​

    Even re-watching it and specifically looking for evidence of Sophie Turner's claims, I still don't see it. It's at the end of this clip:

    I can't stand Sansa. So much so that it makes me not like the actress. Hearing this from her makes it easier to not like her.

    She has done such a great job of making Sansa appear stupid--especially in the earlier seasons--that I'm inclined to think the actress herself is stupid. And may have trouble understanding her scenes.... Or maybe she's just an awesome actress.

    It takes a genius to convince people you're that stupid! :D

    I started re-watching from the beginning. I forgot how annoying Sansa was. She was a complete brat only concerned with becoming the queen and having Joffrey's babies. Her character has done a complete 180.

    Would you say the same for Luke on Modern Family?

    Not at all. Luke, like Haley, has shown signs of being very clever.

    Plus I'm pretty sure the actor that plays Luke is legit smart. Like, really smart.

    Yes. He is. But he's done such a good job of making Luke appear stupid that I was wondering if stellie was inclined to think that he was stupid.

    Plenty of stupid people have convinced me they're stupid. :p

    I'm not a fan of the Sansa character either. I hope she doesn't factor in too much going forward.

    Nope--I give the writers full credit for Luke's stupidity. ;)
