Pretty fucking unlikely. That whole plot hasn't been meandering slowly along just for a dead-end of Arya getting stabbed to death.

The only way I can conceive that she dies of her injuries is if the Waif then assumes her identity.

Zero chance she's dead, imo.

After reading some reddit theories, it seems that Arya was behaving very much out-of-character through most of the episode (the way she throws the coin purse/the merry walking around the city). It seems purposefully wrong, so I'm guessing (a) that isn't Arya; or (b) she set a trap to get the Waif.

That's a pretty dumb trap if it is one.

I'm just glad that they didn't go the Fight Club route and have the Waif be a split Arya personality like some had theorized.

Yeah, the Hound was tremendous here.

As for our girl, the storyline wasn't executed as well as it could have been but I am VERY satisfied with the outcome. She's going back to Winterfell and will be the ultimate winner of the Game of Thrones.

The Arya bits bothered me: what was the point of the whole getting stabbed/recovering detour in episode 8? It would have been much more compelling had they followed the initial Waif attack with Arya luring her to the dark room. Quite a bit of bad writing there, I thought.

But yeah, I'm ready for Arya to go back to Westeroos.

The preview is promising for next week's episode.

I clapped at the ending, but in hindsight, the stabby stabby bits were pretty unnecessary.

She looked too seriously injured to be running around the next day, let alone defeat a skilled fighter.

Writing this season has been very uneven.

God, that was satisfying.

Another fantastic episode 9 for this show. Glad that it wasn't just all in the North though.

Game of Thrones, continued

Game 7 of the finals followed by this was way too intense.

The episode was really well executed, but I can't help feeling slightly underwhelmed. Maybe the whole thing was too predictable? And where was Ghost, by the way?
