Weiss, the producers themselves dropped som hints regarding this. Up till now Cersie’s immense love for her children has evidently been the motivator for all her actions and plans.

Three of the most loved characters in the series, Jon, Arya and Sansa collectively known as the Starks are believed to be revealing their darker sides in the next season.None other than the actress Maisie Williams playing the role of Arya Stark, herself revealed in an interview that her actions in the season 7, along with what Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) might do, are expected to “ricochet” on the Starks’ morality as well as psychology. Moreover, actress Sophie Turner also hinted that her character Sansa might show her sadistic and villainous shades alongside Lord Petyr Baelish aka Little Finger (Aidan Gillen).
Season 6 has backed Game of Thrones 23 primetime Emmy nominations and is all set to add to the already 26 in its winning account.
