‘Game of Thrones’: Arya vs. Sansa — Who Suffered More? [POLL]


Sansa and Arya had a pretty intense argument on Game of Thrones tonight, and part of that argument revolved around which of the two has suffered more. Now fans are debating that question themselves. Here are what fans think about this question. Once you read the whole article, take our poll at the end and let us know what you think. 

This article has spoilers for Season 7 Episode 6. 

Sansa and Arya have both suffered quite a bit on Game of Thrones. Sansa was psychologically tortured by Joffrey and threatened with being forced to marry him. Then when Littlefinger helped her escape after Joffrey was killed, he ended up handing her over to Ramsay.

Ramsay was absolutely terrible to Sansa. He raped her multiple times and psychologically tortured her too. She had to escape with Theon and practically fight her way out.

But Arya had it really tough too. Arya had to disguise herself as a boy just to survive. When they were captured by the Gold Cloaks, she watched other people getting tortured and killed, always knowing it might happen to her. And then she was right under Tywin’s nose, easy to find. When she finally made it to Braavos, she went through some terribly difficult training that included being blind, and had to fight the Waif for her own life.

Neither sister had it easy. And it might be unfair to claim that one sister had it tougher than the other. Both found unique ways to handle their situations and it’s very likely that neither would have survived in the other’s shoes.

Do you agree with this or do you think that one sister definitely suffered more than the other? Let us know in the poll below.
