rant: of all the things to leave out, weasel soup?!? weasel soup?!? that's the reason jaqen gives her the coin b/c he respects her and thinks she could make a great assassin someday (aww how sweet) -- but in the preview for next episode she distinctly tells jaqen "you have to kill him now" which probably refers to tywin -- b/c tywin is leaving -- which presents a weird problem for the jaqen storyline -- if he agrees, then tywin dies now and doesnt do everything he is supposed to do which doesnt make any sense - and if jaqen refuses, then it goes against his whole you pick a name and the deed will be done thing, which doesnt make sense either. also, it would mean that weasel soup is very friggin unlikely. ugh. as much as i love those scenes, i feel like they shouldve had him leave last episode at the latest and had the northern prisoners brought in.
Here is my guess the 'him' in that dialog is neither Tywin or The Mountin , this is the Arya trick 'him' as in the book.
Tywin and Ser Gregor play such important roles in SoS they have to remain alive.
One thing we know , in E7 , from Tryion that Stannis is either four or five days away from KL. This makes the situation at KL absolutely dire. Tywin gets one of these faster than light Ravens telling him this, that knowledge has to take precedence over anything that is going on. He has to assemble his army and leave pronto!
I don't know who will be left as castellan of Harrenhal since Ser Amory pushing up daises. It was a skeleton crew anyway, some anonymous guys or maybe Polliver since he is cast and has had a speaking role.
I agree with those who say it's likely Tywin knows Arya is not a commoner, but does not know she is Arya.
His instructions maybe just to keep an eye on her. If he knows she is Arya he may not want to take her, as of the moment, because things about to get super dangerous.
Yes I think that pushes, possibly, Weasel Soup off into E10.
If they push Soup and House of the Undying off into E10, then E9+E10 will will be top the season with fireworks!
