Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6: The journey of the youngest Stark girl has been one of the most interesting in the course of Game of Thrones. Right from the first scene where we saw Arya teasing her brother Bran by her Archery skills, we knew that she’s not going to be some damsel in distress. As the seasons passed we saw her growing strong and more oriented towards her goal to avenge the assassination of her family. She saw her father being beheaded in front of her eyes. She was also there when her mother and eldest brother were tricked into a trap and murdered. We saw her finding her way with SandorClegane the Hound who kidnapped her. And we also saw her boldly facing TywinLannister and escaping with the help of the faceless assassin JaqenHaghar. It was Jaqen himself who later trained ‘A Girl’ to be a faceless assassin like him. The training was brutal but paid in the end. And for her final scene in season 6, we saw Arya avenging her mother and brother’s murder by making Wlader Frey eating his own sons and then ultimately killing him.
Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 – GOT 7 Predictions for Arya Stark
Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 – So, what’s going to be Arya’s fate in the next season? To predict that we’d need to think of the possible steps that Arya will take.
For this, let us try to look at the names on Arya’s hit list. Thanks to the storyline Game of Thrones, most of the names in Arya’s list are already dead. Except for one name that we’ve been hearing her saying every time she repeats her list before sleeping, “The Mountain”. Sir GregorClegane, who vowed to keep his lips zipped until he has ensured the security of the Queen, has been one hateful character during the series. We saw the guy literally bursting Oberyn Martell’s skull with his bare hands. In fact in season 6 we’ve seen him crush anyone’s skull who even spoke ill about Queen Cersie.
The Mountain’s activities at the Casterly Rock added him on Arya’s hit list. And since the guy’s still alive, there’s a very strong chance that the Arya’s going to go for him. Based on this assumption, this wants we think Arya’s journey is going to be in the Game of Thrones Season 7.
We saw Arya telling Jaqen during her departure from Bravos that she’s going home. Since currently Jon and Sansa Stark are already there in Winterfell, it’s pretty obvious that she’ll be meeting them and join the forces to go to King’s Landing. Now, we know she’s a trained assassin. This means instead of a one to one combat or a war soldier, Jon will use Arya’s skills in eliminating individual enemies. The important ones. Assuming that, Jon’s plan is ultimately going to be about winning the Iron Throne, his biggest enemy is going to be the Mad Queen CersieLannister. And who’s the strongest member of the King’s Guard or rather Queen’s Guard, *tada* it’s Sir Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane? So, our prediction is, that Arya’s mission is going to be killing the mountain in the next season.
Having said that, we must also not ignore the hint dropped by actress Maisie Williams who’s been portraying Arya on screen. According to her Game of Thrones Season 7 is going to present some darker shades of the Stark siblings. If that is the case, the predictions might even more interesting.
If you guys remember, in Battle of Bastards, we saw Lord PetyrBaelish aiding the Starks on Sansa’s request.Petyr’s interest in Sansa has been quite visible. In fact, in the sixth season, we all heard him saying that he wants to sit on the iron throne with Sansa as his queen. This means Sansa might be around Littlefinger for a while. Of course, he has the army of Vale under him, which the Starks need a lot. Until the opportune moment comes. If our predictions go as per theorized there’s a strong chance that Arya’s next big target is going to be Lord Petyr “Little Finger” Baelish. Once Sansa gains his trust and has the Vale army under her influence, Little Finger’s assassination will seem the most appropriate step.
So, this is our theory about Arya’s journey in the next season. To know what actually happens, keep following this amazing TV series and our posts as well.
