By stabbing the Night King (Vladimír Furdík) in the gut, Arya ended the Walkers and the Wights entirely, which was probably very confusing for the fighters who didn’t know about that the army of the dead’s survival completely depended on the Night King. I would imagine that all the zombies suddenly falling down in the middle of a zombie battle is suspicious if you’re not clued in, no?
We lost some great characters before Arya’s big murder (miss you already, Theon [Alfie Allen]), but the unexpectedly early death of the Night King recenters the story around around the characters who have personalities and are not undead. Plus, it was really cool.
As always, Twitter had a lot to say about Thrones, and in particular, Arya’s status as 100% That Bitch. Here are some highlights.
A little love for Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha):
Some Arya worship from Pedro Pascal, who played Prince Oberyn (RIP)
Maybe all that time training in Braavos really was worth it:
Some people had jokes about how recently Arya had sex:
It’s logical, if you don’t think about it:
We know Arya is sneaky, but it did feel like the Night King’s generals were not doing their best:
Arya said “not today,” honey:
There was speculation about how Gendry (Joe Dempsie) would react to Arya’s new status as the Night King’s killer:
There were a lot of tweets that referred to Arya as a “bad bitch” or “THAT bitch”:
T-Pain weighed in:
If we could get an episode that’s just Arya’s victory lap, that would be great:
