For most of Game of Thrones Season 6 there was a very prominent fan theory/rumor surrounding Sansa Stark, the oldest of the Stark daughters. And that fan theory has just been shut down forever, but before we get to the details of that I just want to mention that there are minor spoilers ahead. So, if you’re not all caught up on Game of Thrones you might want to turn back now, though, I’m guessing you are caught up and want THE TRUTH because you clicked this article fully aware of what it was about.

Moving on, in the Season 6 finale Ramsay Bolton, Sansa Stark’s torturous and certifiably psychopathic husband, dropped a line that had fans worldwide questioning whether or not Sansa was pregnant with Ramsay’s baby. Here’s what he had to say: “You can’t kill me. I’m part of you now,”.

It seemed pretty clear that the showrunners wanted fans to believe she was pregnant because they had zero follow-up to that line, and in no way implied that him being part of her was an emotional scar on her conscience or some shit like that.

Well, Josh Kurp over at our sister site UPROXX is reporting on an interview with actor Liam Cunningham, the man who plays Ser Davos in Game of Thrones. In that interview from a few months back Ser Davos sort of shut down the rumor for the first time by saying “I would imagine it’s open to whatever you want it to be, but I think he’s saying he’s put himself into her head. That’s what I took from it. She’s never gonna get rid of him because of what he’s done to her.”

You’d think that one of the major actors on the series shutting that rumor down would be enough but fans held steadfast to the belief that Sansa is pregnant. Well, that theory has been shut down once and for all by WatchersOnTheWall:

Last of all, I am enormously happy to report that Watchers on the Wall can put a certain “theory” to bed. If any in our readership believed a certain insistent rumor, the following may be a relief to hear: Sansa will NOT be (or get) pregnant in season seven.

We’re done here. Rumor squashed. Sansa doesn’t have any bun in her oven and she’s not getting preggers next season. We can now stop talking about this forever, okay?
