Sansa Stark is one of only a handful characters on Game Of Thrones that fans find themselves actively rooting for. After starting the series as a lovely young girl who had big dreams of finding a handsome prince to marry, she has evolved into a jaded young woman who is all too familiar with the horrors of real life, and those horrors just won’t seem to stop coming.
(SPOILERS ahead, so be forewarned if you haven’t seen the most recent episode)
Sansa has survived the brutality of King’s Landing, a horrific life with Joffrey and his wicked mother, and now she’s been kidnapped by the slithery Lord Baelish after being–at least partially–blamed for the murder of the king. On Sunday night’s episode, she was confronted in a very creepy way by Baelish, who followed up a declaration that in another life she might have been his daughter with a kiss, which his wife witnessed. That kiss led to his wife–Lysa, who is also Sansa’s aunt–holding Sansa over the moon door by her hair, threatening to drop her to a terrible death for seducing her husband. Baelish comes to Sansa’s rescue, however, and ends up tossing Lysa through the hole.
Immediately after the episode aired, Twitter blew up with posts about Sansa, who can’t seem to get away from people who want to do her harm.
"She hasn’t had to kill with her hands, but what Sansa must do emotionally is damn hard work." #GoT #SansaStark http://t.co/7WsjH0EoOA

I'd happily watch a show that consisted of Sansa Stark riding around Westeros slapping people #queeninthenorth

Sansa Stark has gone through so much I don't want her life! I don't even understand how she is still sane!
