Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner on THAT moment in this week's episode (SPOILERS)

WARNING: This article is dark and full of spoilers. 

It happened. After years of near misses two Stark siblings were finally reunited and, like the saying goes, it felt so good. 

The two characters in question - Sansa Stark and Jon Snow - haven't shared a scene since the pilot, which saw the House of Stark torn apart. As such their reunion is easily one of, if not the best moment of the latest episode, and Sansa star Sophie Turner enjoyed filming it almost as much as viewers will no doubt enjoy watching it.

"It's such an emotional moment," Turner told Entertainment Weekly. "She finally made it to Castle Black. And there's this look where they're just studying each other's faces, with no expression. Then there's this long embrace. It's just awesome".

"I'm most excited for the fact I get to see Kit [Harington] and get to act with him," Turner continued. "Kit is one of my best mates and we had just one scene together in the pilot, where we're waiting on the king. It's like working with an older brother. I've watched his work over the past four years and I think he's amazing. He's so focused and dedicated".

Just because the two siblings are back together doesn't necessarily mean they'll agree on everything; ""She's been through so much. She knows Jon is her older brother and Davos is older and wiser, but she's probably been through more than both of them. She's not just going to go along with other people's decisions".

There have been so many near misses for the Stark siblings that I assumed Sansa and Jon wouldn't cross paths, even though the promo for the episode showed her arriving at Castle Black. It's a great moment for Game of Thrones fans (in an hour which had many of them), and I can't wait to see how this relationship develops as season 6 continues.

Season 6 of Game of Thrones airs Sundays on HBO in the US, and Sky Atlantic on Mondays in the UK.
