Game of Thrones Season 7 is currently over halfway over, with four out of the total seven episodes having already aired. Now, from what we have seen, the major conflict of interest is between the grab for power, that is the Iron Throne, and the will to stay alive despite the impending doom of the White Walkers. Now, as we have seen till now, Jon Snow has found mutual support in Daenerys Targaryen, while Cersei Lannister has teamed up with Euron Greyjoy. While there are definite possibilities of a romantic angle in the two, a new fan theory has now brought to our attention, an unexpected couple, the marriage between which, could change things : Sansa Stark, and Dickon Tarly. Read on!
As we saw in the last episode, titled ‘The Spoils of War’, that Dickon Tarly did quite well in that battle leading from Daenerys’ attack on the Lannister loot train from Highgarden. There is no doubt that Daenerys won it, and she is seen addressing the remainder of the forces in the promo for the next episode. She is offering to let them live if they join her, and there is a good chance that Dickon will take that offer up, and end up marrying Sansa Stark eventually. RedditorALL_STAR_87explains how :
“Could Sansa Stark and Dickon Tarlybe the pairing Westeros has been waiting for? Randyll Tarly is clearly the driving force behind the recent Lannister alliance, while young Dickon shows more concern about turning his back on old ties. If Randyll croaks and Dickon survives there’s a chance he could abandon his father’s pact with the Lannisters, paving the way to reconnect with his brother Sam — who happens to have the Tarly’s Valyrian steel sword and coincidentally is best mates with a Stark”
“With the Starks/Targaryens looking likely to take on the walkers, Sam bringing House Tarly (and most likely the rest of The Reach) onboard would be a big strategic win. Not to mention that House Tarly supported the Targaryens back in the day. By joining the fight in the north, Sansa and Dickon would no-doubt cross paths, setting-up a potentially perfect partnership bringing together north and south.”
