Will Bran Stark Come to Sansa’s Rescue?


Sansa Stark seems, yet again, afraid and alone in the world. However, hope is closer than she knows: Brienne of Tarth is nearby and it's more than likely that one of her surviving siblings witnessed her forced marriage to ruthless Ramsay Bolton.*

This week's House Slate, with hosts Marc Faletti and Amanda Marcotte, discusses why we can probably assume that Bran saw her wedding to Ramsay. They also explore the role of chivalrous knights and forlorn princesses in George R.R. Martin's subversive take on the fantasy genre.

Correction, May 18, 2015: This post originally misspelled Ramsay Bolton’s first name.

Marc Faletti is the director of multimedia for Rewire and is based in Brooklyn.

Daniel Hubbard is a writer, editor, and director living in New York City.

Amanda Marcotte is writer for Salon.

Erica Walsh is a senior producer for Slate Video.
