After years of developing her sword-fighting skills, last season saw Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) learning how to fight while blind. Arya's older sister, Sansa (Sophie Turner), blossomed after escaping from two terrifying marriages. Now, instead of dealing with sociopathic husbands, Sansa spends her time as a war strategy mastermind.
While the Stark sisters might be scattered around the Game of Thrones universe, at least Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are forever bonded in friendship. Since meeting in 2010, Turner and Williams been more than co-stars — they’ve been besties, too. And their friendship is the only light shining down in the bleak, bleak Westerosi universe. Keep on shining, ladies.
