This is the first of three posts about Sansa’s beautiful wedding gown featured in Second Sons the eighth episode of season three of Game of Thrones.
Spoiler alert for those who haven’t read the book:
In the novel Storm of Swords, Sansa’s situation in King’s Landing improves with the arrival of the large Tyrell clan in King’s Landing to celebrate the wedding of Margaery Tyrell to Joffrey Baratheon. Sansa is quickly embraced by the Tyrells, especially by Margaery. She finally has the friendship of a flock of young women, something she has longed for, and the once lonely Sansa soon spends her days in the company of Margaery and the many Tyrell cousins. Margaery is the sister that Sansa always wanted.
As in the TV series, Sansa talks too freely for her own good and confirms the Tyrell’s suspicions that Joffrey Lannister is a sadistic monster. Out of concern for Margaery, Sansa warns her new friend that Joffrey is capable of abusing his new bride. Margaery laughs this off, suggesting that Loras will be there to protect her.
The Tyrell’s promise Sansa that she might marry the Tyrell heir and be removed to Highgarden. They paint a lovely picture of their home and Sansa soon dreams of escape. In the novel, Sansa thinks this might be Loras but later soon learns it will be his older brother Willas, a kind, intelligent man whose has been left disabled by an accident. In the TV series Sansa is to marry Loras, but the naïve Sansa is unaware that handsome knight Loras is a homosexual, and is still in morning for his lover King Renly. Either way it proves to be an empty promise. In the novel, Sansa, full of dreams of a future in Highgarden, tells drunken knight and Littlefinger cat’s paw, Ser Dontos, that she no longer needs his help. He had been vaguely promising Sansa that there are plans for her escape. In the TV series, Littlefinger, working with Cercei, is alerted to the Tyrell’s plan by a squire sent to seduce Loras. Discovering that Loras is to marry, Littlefinger realizes that Sansa is the bride when he rightly observes that Sansa is becoming too close to Margaery. He warns the Lannisters. Tyrion is forced to accept Sansa as a bride. He gently informs Sansa and her handmaiden Shae, who is also Tyrion’s mistress. Sansa breaks down in tears when she realizes that hopes of escaping King’s Landing are dashed.
In the novel, her impending marriage to Tyrion is unknown to Sansa and she doesn’t realize that the Tyrell plan is foiled until the very morning of her wedding to Tryion. All that Sansa knows is that Cercei is having a new gown made for her. She attributes this generosity to the fact she is outgrowing all her old clothes. On that day of her wedding, Sansa is bathed, her hair is styled, and she is dressed in a beautiful new gown. Cercei arrives to inform Sansa about the wedding. After the shock of being told, Sansa agrees to marry Tyrion after he assures her that he will not hurt her. What other choice does Sansa have? She is still a hostage of the Lannisters and now has no means of escape.
She is marched down the aisle by the sadistic boy king Joffrey who murdered her father. She soon learns that her purpose is to produce a Lannister heir to Winterfell. Repulsed by her new husband, Sansa dreads the wedding night but tries to hide her feelings remaining courteous to Tyrion. Mercifully, Tyrion (his finest moment as a character) doesn’t force her to consummate the marriage, promising Sansa that they will do so when she is ready. She replies that she will never be ready to sleep with him.
So it is a loveless, sexless political marriage for the most unlikely couple in Westeros. I love the fact that in the TV series, Tyrion references the vow of the (technically) celibate men of the Night’s Watch, “And now my watch begins…”
I don’t recall the details of the wedding dress from the book, but in Tyrion’s opinion, Sansa looks very beautiful. Since the wedding is a show for the Lannister’s, her dress is rich and befits the status of someone about to join the wealthiest family in Westeros.
