People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.

People who hate Sansa can shove right off, okay.
You really need to read the books…she’s honest to god just trying to not die. I love how everyone is seeing her as a badass in the show, but when you read from her point of view, she literally wants nothing more than to just go hide somewhere and not die…and also have a handsome husband.
She’s still awesome and I think in that world, wanting to be unnoticed and alive is a wonderful goal, but she’s not trying to be a player in the Game. She just wants to get through the Game alive.
Also, no spoilers, but she makes some stupid-ass assumptions coming up soon if they stick to the story that made me want to slap her for not having apparently learned anything.
It’s so hard to know how they’ll keep playing her in the show, and knowing people will be all “there goes her character development!” if they stick to the books for the next part of this story, since it would technically be accurate, even if it seemed inconsistent. This show is a whole different beast when you can’t hear the characters thoughts like in the book…
