Game of Thrones Season 8 Deleted Scene That Could Have Changed The End

Since the finale of Game of Thrones did not satisfy many fans, yet it’s possible that a deleted scene would have improved things for some fans. It would have likely affected many fans’ opinions in a positive way about the Queen in the North: Sansa Stark.

This scene happens in the highly-anticipated episode of the season “The Long Night,” the battle between the main characters of the story and the Night King and his White Walkers. While Arya Stark and heroes at Winterfell are fighting on top, Sansa is in the crypts with Tyrion and all the rest of those who aren’t exactly fighters.

The scene, shown on EW’s website, features White Walker Wights terrorizing the crypts of Winterfell. Sansa and Tyrion run around, trying their best to evade the Wights. When they about to go after Missandei, Gilly, and Baby Sam. Just as they’re closing in for the kill, suddenly they fall to the floor, revealing Sansa and Tyrion behind them.

Sansa and Missandei disagree earlier in the episode, yet Sansa still fights to save her. It definitely would have been more likely to please fans if this scene had been left into the final cut of the show. It would have turned even the most intense Sansa hater into a supporter.

It would have shown how much Sansa truly cares about her people and even about those who she doesn’t entirely get along with.

Game of Thrones finale, made questionable decisions when it came to Sansa. After all the trauma she endured throughout the show, it did give her a crown and a kingdom of her own.

Gave the responsibility of ruling the rest of Westeros to her brother Bran. Some might view Sansa telling Bran that the North will be independent as Sansa asking Bran to rule the North, rather than truly earning it.

Yet it didn’t have to be like that. Surely there’s no better way to earn the throne of the North than to fight White Walkers to defend it.

In the end, the show also could have shown Sansa actually ruling the North in Winterfell, which would have been interesting to see for many fans and probably would have improved reactions as well.
