Game of Thrones: Sansa Stark twist foreshadowed in major map clue

GAME OF THRONES may be over but with such a rich, layered series there is still a lot to explore and it seems as though another moment where there was some major foreshadowing in play has been revealed.

The Game of Thrones finale saw many twists and turns take place with several notable changes to how Westeros would be run.

After Daenerys Targaryen’s (played by Emilia Clarke) death, all the heads of the noble houses gathered to decided a new ruler.

Instead of arguing over who had the strongest claim to the Iron Throne, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) was elected leader.

One major difference was soon decided as he decreed that the North would become separated from the rest of Westeros and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) would be Queen in the North.

But it seems as though this decision was hinted at prior to it actually taking place.

One fan has pointed out that at the the Battle of King’s Landing in the penultimate episode of the series, damage that was sustained to a map foreshadowed the splitting of the North and South.

Reddit user farruksshah wrote: “The crack that appeared on the map of Westeros during the Battle of King’s Landing foreshadowed the eventual split between the North and South Kingdoms.”

As the opening credits of each episode was altered to reflect the events of the episodes prior, in the final episode the crack could be seen as the Red Keep was shown in the titles.

The crack could also be seen in the episode as Tyrion Lannister walked through the Red Keep where he found the bodies of his twin siblings Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).

As viewers know, the finale saw Bran crowned as King of the Six Kingdoms.

He decided to split the North off at the behest of his sister Sansa, who became Queen in the North.

So, it looks as though the split in the map foreshadowed this major turn of events.

While Sansa and Bran took on leadership roles, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) decided to take off on a new adventure.

She told her siblings she was off to discover what was “West of Westeros”.

However, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) had a rather different fate as he was sent back to the Night’s Watch.

After he killed Daenerys, Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) wanted him killed but an agreement was decided between him and the Starks which saw Jon taken back to the Night’s Watch.

But one fan has pointed out that his fate was foreshadowed in the Night’s Watch promise that those who take the black must live by.

Reddit user TheDaysKing detailed a huge breakdown of the oath and the how the lines correlate with Jon’s life.

One such line read: “I shall wear no crowns and win no glory.”

This turned out to be entirely true as although he was the rightful Targaryen heir to the throne, he refused it.
