    Arya's Return from Braavos
    This is my first post so please bear with me. I've read all the books up to DwD twice already and am on my third re-read when I came across something interesting in CoK. On pp36-37 in American paperback Arya thinks about going home.

    "When she at last slept,she dreamed of home.The kingsroad wound its way past Winterfell on its way to the Wall, ans Yoren had promised he'd leave her there with no one any wiser about who she had been. She yearned to see her mother again, and Robb and Bran and Rickon...but it was Jon Snow she thought of most. she wished somehow they could come to the Wall before Winterfell, so Jon could muss up her hair and call her 'little sister.' She'd tell him, 'I missed you,' and he'd say it too at the very same moment, the way they always used to say things together. She would have liked that. She would have liked that better than anything."
    Now, I know she's tried to reach Cat and Robb at Riverrun, and her interactions with the Hound brought her to Braavos, via the Saltpans. She has asked about ships going to Eastwatch, and (to her knowledge) Jon is in a position as Lord Commander to help her. Also, I know that a representative of Stannis (who still has soldiers, his wife and daughter, and Melisandre at the wall) is headed to Braavos as well as a representative of the Iron Bank of Braavos.

    Finally, I can ask my question. Is this a foreshadowing and are these people her "twisted road to the Wall and then Winterfell"? Or am I following a red herring and am on my way to crackpottery?
