Jon finds out who his parents were and he doesn't take it very well. Sansa attempts to make him feel better only to come to a shocking realisation about her own feelings.
Jon lowers his eyes almost as if he can’t look at Sansa while he asks.
“About what you said earlier.”
Sansa expects him to continue, but that’s all she seems to be getting.
“I said many things, Jon,” she sighs.
“You said you loved me.” Ah, that. “Why?”
His voice is shaking, he sounds almost too afraid to be hopeful. It breaks her heart.
“What do you mean why? I said it because it is how I feel. You are the most important person in the entire world to me.”
Although Sansa has never wondered about it before, she knows in her heart that it’s true. She loves Arya and Bran more than she loves herself, but Jon is the first person she ever loved for who he was and what they shared together, not someone whom she was conditioned to love no matter what. Maybe it was lady Catelyn’s doing. Maybe it was for the better.
Jon still refuses to look her in the eye.
“Even now?” he asks quietly. “Even after it’s been revealed that I’m not your brother?”
“Especially now,” she answers without really giving it much thought.
