Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season is just around the corner and fans cannot wait to see their favourite characters fight for their lives and for the throne. From Daenerys Targaryen to Tyrion Lannister, fans are placing their bets on who will finally rule over Westeros.

In this fight between the fans, one name has emerged as the new favourite: Sansa Stark. The eldest Stark daughter, played by Sophie Turner, was subjected to a lot of hate from fans in the earlier season for her selfish, snobbish temperament. But through the seven seasons, she made sure to learn from the treacherous people around her and still did not let the evil consume her good heart. Every time we thought she would give in to selfishness or make bad decisions, she surprised us.

Sansa was dealt a bad hand at every turn. First, she fell for the insufferable King Joffrey and had to live under the constant gaze of his mother, Queen Cersei. Then, she was forced to marry Tyrion which perhaps brought her a few days of relief. Later, she was manipulated by Lord Baelish and then sold to the most villainous villain ever, Ramsay Bolton.

But through all of these hopeless situations, year after year, she survived, either by suffering silently, making the right friends, fleeing on the first opportunity and most importantly, by learning from everything that life threw at her.

In the last season, she showed wisdom beyond her years when she joined forces with her sister Arya and brought down the one serpent who sparked the fire which burned her whole house down: Lord Baelish. Right now, Sansa is the Lady of Winterfell and perhaps more suited to ruling than her brother, Jon Snow. But she has a new challenge facing her in the new season. She will have to prepare her people for a battle to ends all battles as the Night King comes knocking on her door. While many would consider her unsuited to face an enemy so powerful and without any skills to save herself, it will be worth finding out how she takes on this challenge.

Before the season kicks off on April 14, here are the five best Sansa Stark scenes to remind you of all that she has been through and how she emerged victorious in spite of it.

Or maybe he’ll give me yours.

There is nothing to forgive.
