    Spoilers--Arya's Journey from No One to Someone

    It was certainly striking to see her reaction to these people. She went back to pick up the axe and help Beric! She defended the Hound with her bow and firey arrows as he ran back to the gates. She took Melisandra's cryptic council and refocused her mind on one target and headed to the Godswood. Not only her emotional tears but her actions spoke even louder.

    Arya Losin' It

    The chances of Arya getting pregnant after what happened with her and Gendry? She doesn't seem to be planning on surviving beyond the battle the next day. Would she have taken precautions with Moon Tea? It only took one time with her mom and her first child as well. Same with Lyanna...
  3. Did Arya think of this before or after her fling with Gendry? Consequences of not could be a game changer for her.

    Arya & Moon Tea

    Was she able to get some before the battle starts? Considering she had resigned herself to not surviving through the next day.... would she bother making any preparations?

    That AGoT line foreshadowing the last scene of ADoS

    "You,” Ned said, kissing her lightly on the brow, “will marry a king and rule his castle, and your sons will be knights and princes and lords and, yes, perhaps even a High Septon.” - A Game of Thrones This is the scene from the graphic novel: https://i.imgur.com/0DRXtFM.jpg That quote above also mirrors the scene between Maggy the Frog and a young Cersei. Arya asks three questions about her future just like Cersei does and both girls left puzzled.

    That AGoT line foreshadowing the last scene of ADoS

    But the dialogue in question is directed at Arya that she would Marry a King - a future she would never want. The same person who tells her that also has a line in the books where he mentions being a father to Queens. The show changed the dialogue for the same reasons many book readers found the line as perplexing. A few chapters later, GRRM has Jon playing out a similar scenario where he is called a King over and over again and deflects the title off on someone else.

    That AGoT line foreshadowing the last scene of ADoS

    Why didn't you include the conversation between Arya/Ned in King's Landing? The comics have it exactly right while the show felt the need to rewrite it to make sense. Daniel could've haf the same misgivings and changed that section. Daniel even has Arya winking when she says the last line. Here are other interviews and quotes about Daniel's collaboration with George: 2011DA: "Prying spoilers out of George. There are times when I need to compress some bit of action or reduce the number of characters in a scene just so that the page isn’t confusing to look at, but in order for that to happen, I need to know what’s critical plot and what’s not. As a result, I know a bunch things about how the series ends and what some of the prophecies in the text mean that I would be shot for telling." http://aidanmoher.com/blog/2011/05/articles/guest-post-the-three-wedding-nights-of-daenerys-targaryen-by-daniel-abraham/ http://www.danielabraham.com/2011/12/16/ignite-new-mexico-adapting-game-of-thrones/ https://www.cbr.com/abraham-plays-a-game-of-thrones/ https://www.unboundworlds.com/2012/04/new-release-interview-game-of-thrones-graphic-novel-hc-by-daniel-abraham/ https://www.comixology.com/George-R-R-Martins-A-Game-Of-Thrones-The-Comic-Book/comics-series/6851?ref=Y29taWMvdmlldy9kZXNrdG9wL2JyZWFkY3J1bWJz http://www.mtv.com/news/2622417/interview-daniel-abraham-on-bringing-game-of-thrones-to-comics/

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    The actor Edmure has scenes in S8 so that just blows another hole to along with the many holes already in their "theory". LOL Also, the guy who leaked the description of S8's first episode said very clearly RIP Jonsa.

    Yes and those were debunked a long time. Seems Dany is settling in Episode 2 still: https://b.thumbs.redditmedia.com/_hL8aLr4Q5zbEHo6xHn1rDjnrYIir2gI8s2yr5h06zQ.jpg

    Yup. The biggest yawn. You can hear the bitterness jump off every word from Mysty.

    Season 8 Official Trailer Released

    Perhaps she just witnessed something happen to someone she cares about. The fact that she's hiding at one point, inside the castle running to the Great Hall... why? Is there something she's trying to get to? The tunnels in the crypts should be how they all eventually escape. Yet we see Arya up in the castle instead. Hmm.

    Season 8 Official Trailer Released

    A lightened version of the trailer where you can see a lot more detail. Arya's long spear is broken when she's running. Wights don't bleed as much as whatever that thing was that Arya slashes in her last scene in the trailer. Must be something alive... Golden Company?

    Season 8 Official Trailer Released

    How are they different? This is amusing. I posted the screenshots where windows are visible. It's a very dark clip and despite that we see the same Winterfell set. We see her on the battlements in the last clip fighting wights. Same setting as Jaime for example. They only used scenes from ep 1 - 3. This is the Battle of Winterfell Maisie was talking about filming during all those crazy long nights in the recent EW article.
