Is A MAJOR Game Of Thrones Stark Character About To Come Back After All?!
Warning: This post contains potential spoilers for season seven of Game of Thrones. Watch the clip of the scene above.
With Arya Stark finally returning home to Winterfell during this week's episode The Spoils of War, and hugging it out with Sansa and Bran, she caught up for a chat with Brienne of Tarth, hoping to show off her newly-acquired sword fighting skills.
Fans reckon it was even more important due to the fact that Catelyn seemingly returned as Arya said to Brianne, "You swore to serve both my mother's daughters". With these two bits of knowledge, we theorize that Arya and The Hound will cross paths somewhere in the Riverlands - though whether Arya will look like Arya is still a question, thanks to her training with the Faceless Men - and he will reveal in casual conversation that Littlefinger is the one who betrayed Ned Stark to King Joffrey way back in season one.
A central character for three seasons, she was murdered alongside son Robb and his heavily pregnant wife Talisa during the show's most notorious episode, The Rains of Castamere, famously known amongst fans as "The Red Wedding" due to their brutal end. The zombie that was once Catelyn Stark reportedly had a fleeting cameo in "The Spoils of War", teasing on the possibility that she will play a significant role in the series. That hasn't stopped fans from trying to point her out, though. It was a lot and honestly we are still grieving.
Arya has already confessed that she had forgiven The Hound for killing her friend Mycah.
"I think it's most shocking for Sansa and Arya to see what Bran is like, because they still have fundamentally the same character traits as they did when they were young: Arya is this spunky, fierce girl, and Sansa is this diplomatic lady".
If Bran has the presence of mind to do that to Littlefinger, you have to wonder if he has a bigger plan in mind when he gives the Valyrian steel dagger to Arya Stark, although Wright doesn't think there's anything more to it than what we saw.
This was a traumatic time. In any case, author Martin has previously stated that HBO and the Game of Thrones showrunners let a good Lady Stoneheart adaptation slip out of their fingers, despite producers saying they never genuinely thought about including the character on screen.
