Game of Thrones as a show is pretty comfortable with the fantastic. There are dragons, magic beings, a boy who can inhabit the bodies of other people and animals, and a god who can resurrect people. The power seems to be concentrated in specific people, but those people are not necessarily consistent between the show and the books. In the books, Arya and Jon both have some warging abilities. We don’t know about Rickon or Robb, as they’re not POV characters, and Sansa’s wolf is killed before the bond can develop. But could there be something else going on with Sansa?

I’ve been watching this show religiously for six seasons and there has never been an important conversation or letter that happens off screen. What you see is what you get. And what we see is Sansa referencing statements she could never have heard. Does this mean Sansa’s going to start exhibiting other powers of her own? Or does it mean that watching the episode three times is a great way to catch minor editing errors? TIME WILL TELL!
