“I Can Still Feel It”
As with any clever TV show, we can’t help but think that there are more clues in the dialogue than meet the eye. After escaping from Ramsay and Winterfell and seeing Petyr Baelish once more, Sansa tells him:
“I can still feel it. I don’t mean ‘in my tender heart it still pains me so’– I can still feel what he did in my body standing here right now.” This was an important nod to the fact that Sansa is a survivor of sexual assault and spousal abuse, a fact which upset many viewers in Season 5 as it was treated fairly nonchalantly.
However, we think this line holds more meaning than mere solidarity as a survivor or as a reference to her growing strength as a character. Whether or not Sansa knows it, this could mean that Ramsay’s baby is growing inside of her right now. We wouldn’t put it past the screenwriters to do something like this.
But here was the biggest hint of all…
Ramsay’s Final Words
Obsessed with power and name, Ramsay, even in his final moments of defeat and shortly before death, insists on showing his dominating personality to Sansa. As she confronts him, tied up in the kennel after the Battle of the Bastards, Ramsay says, “I’m part of you now.” And though Sansa beautifully informs him that all traces of him and his family will soon fade from history, we think it would fit the almost always depressing nature of Game of Thrones for her to soon find out that she is pregnant with her abuser’s baby.
On the other hand, Sansa probably escaped from Ramsay months ago by this point in the season, so it’s hard to say for sure if the timing lines up. Does she know she’s pregnant and she’s keeping it a secret? Will it be a big reveal on the season finale? Or is this theory nothing more than a hypothesis?
Worst comes to worst, there’s always moon tea.
