MtnLion Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 Arya's story arc is following the classic pattern of a revenge story. The powerless protagonist is injured, the protagonist leaves the scene of the injury and goes somewhere to acquire the power to get his revenge, the protagonist returns and kicks ass. Think Count of Monte Cristo, Wuthering Heights, etc. When Arya finally returns to Westeros I'm sure it will be to do something spectacular . . . but then I'm in the minority because I really lurve Arya's Braavos arc. Besides continuing the story of Arya, my favorite character, to me the Braavos interlude provides some relief from the complicated political clusterfucks in Westeros and Essos. I'm right there with you! I do think that the government that eventually emerges will be overpowering to its enemies, and Arya is just one little cog in that wheel, but we will be dropping our jaws at the "mad skillz" she demonstrates.
