7. Jon Snow and Sansa have a political disagreement

After the battle that saw the demise of Ramsay Bolton, Jon Snow is low left with a hard choice to make. The relatives of House Umber and House Karstark are still present after their soldiers betrayed the Starks to side with the Boltons. What should they do with them all?

Ultimately, Jon points out how the families of the soldiers weren’t the ones to betray the Starks. It was the men on the battlefield that made that call, and those people are all dead. Jon isn’t willing to punish the children for the actions of their fathers, and so they get to stay. Besides, the more people they have, the better, because Jon knows that the White Walkers are coming.

Not everyone likes this decision, however, including his sister Sansa. She challenges him right in front of everybody, saying how there is “no punishment for treason and no reward for loyalty.” Jon’s trying to think of the bigger picture here, while Sansa feels that he’s not making the right call. The tiff doesn’t get any bigger than that, for now, but it makes you wonder if there are going to be more problems between these two.
