The history shared between Sansa Stark and Sandor Clegane, aka the Hound, is a complicated one that stretches back years on Game of Thrones. The pair hadn't met for several seasons, until they finally share a scene again in the fourth episode of the final season, "The Last of the Starks." In referencing Sansa's past, the Hound calls her "little bird." It's a nickname that Sansa has heard before, from more than one place.

In her early days as Joffrey's fiancée in King's Landing, Sansa is often referred to with different kinds of bird imagery. Cersei calls her "little dove" in the days when she's pretending kindness towards Sansa; it's used as a term of endearment, but one that's a little bit condescending, too. The Hound, at the time, is Joffrey's personal bodyguard, and although he doesn't intervene much when Joffrey abuses Sansa, he appears uncomfortable with it and does, at one point, rescue Sansa from an angry crowd.

Why Did the Hound Call Sansa " Little Bird "? The Hound gives Sansa his own variation on Cersei's nickname in the season two episode "Blackwater." Unlike Cersei, whose version of " little bird " seems to position Sansa as a pretty little bird in a cage, the Hound ' s seems to begrudgingly respect

The Hound gives Sansa his own variation on Cersei's nickname in the season two episode "Blackwater." In the episode, he abandons his loyalty to the Lannisters with disgust and gets out of King's Landing. Before he leaves, he tracks down Sansa and offers to get her out and take her back to Winterfell. She rejects his offer and, when he gets angry, tells him defiantly that he won't hurt her.

"No, little bird. I won't hurt you," he says, before walking away. In that moment, it's almost an expression of fondness or admiration. He's just finished telling Sansa that "the world is built by killers," seemingly lumping himself in with them, and yet her reaction shows that she still believes that he won't hurt her, showing her faith in the decency of people. Unlike Cersei, whose version of "little bird" seems to position Sansa as a pretty little bird in a cage, the Hound's seems to begrudgingly respect her innocence in the face of horrors. When he sees her again as an adult woman and Lady of Winterfell, she's not a "little bird" anymore, but a full-fledged wolf of the North, and although their conversation has some troubling implications, there can be no doubt that Sansa is certainly no "little bird" these days.

Maisie Williams says her 'Game of Thrones' fame affected her mental health.
Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in "Game of Thrones," says fame has had a negative affect on her mental health and self-esteem. In an interview on the Happy Place podcast, Williams opened up about how it was a challenge navigating life as a teenager while also managing her fame from "Game of Thrones." Williams, who was 13 years old when she was cast as Arya Stark, said there was a period of time where she was sad after becoming overwhelmed by the criticism on social media. "It gets to a point where you're almost craving something negative, so you can just sit in a hole of sadness," Williams said.
