So I loved this episode but I did have this weird feeling about all the survivors. I wouldn’t say disappointed. But I just realized it’s like dropping your best friend off at the airport as they are off to go to college or move away or something. You’ve spent the whole night before hanging out not wanting it to end but knowing it has to. And just as you release your hug and dry the last tears your body can manage to produce... someone comes over the intercom and says “Flight blahblahblah has been delayed 4 hours.”
Like, they’re still leaving... and you’ll still miss them a ton. But... suddenly it’s weird because you could hangout more but you’ve already kinda made your peace with parting and... just kind of wtf
All the Chickens said:JIm and A.Ron keep saying that Arya is a "faceless man" or "No one." Perhaps she is only in the sense that she has some of their abilities, but not in every other sense that matters to the character or to her story arch.
In season 6 episode 8 titled No One, Arya marches up to confront Jaqen and show him the Waifs face. Jaqen praises her and says "finally a girl has become no one."
Then Arya defiantly says "A GIRL IS ARYA STARK OF WINTERFELL, AND I AM GOING HOME."
The whole point is that she took back her identity, and rejected the faceless men and their weirdo death cult. I think that they've done enough now to show that she isn't some emotionless killing machine character who just uses other characters to get what she wants in that moment (I mean, no more than any other average human does).
