Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, has a tattoo on the back of her left arm featuring the House Stark’s direwolf emblem and the phrase “the pack survives.”
When she got the tattoo in June 2018 many fans assumed that it was a spoiler for the show’s upcoming final season, implying that the House Stark would be victorious. However Sophie insists that’s not the case, telling James Corden:
Actually while I was getting it done people advised me not to because it looked like I was giving everything away. But I wasn’t, it’s just a quote from last season. But everyone figures that the pack really does survive. It’s just a moral that I like to live by.
The quote “the pack survives” implies that there is strength in unity. It was first said by Sansa’s father Ned Stark, but is repeated by Sophie’s character in Season 7 Episode 7 The Dragon and The Wolf, where she tells sister Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams):
When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.
