For many seasons, Game of Thrones fans have waited to see the last surviving Starks reunite. Specifically, when Arya and Sansa separated at the end of Season 1, it was due to the execution of their father Ned, and the betrothal of Sansa to Joffrey. Both characters have gone through a lot since then, and one would think that their reunion would ultimately be a happy one.
However, the reality is that both characters have changed a great deal since then. They’ve had to learn to survive in a brutal and unforgiving world — Arya at the lower levels, and Sansa at the higher ones. Of course, given how this whole mess seemed to start around Joffrey (though we know it goes back way farther than that), they have some resentment towards one another, as we already saw last episode.
If you’re hoping for the two of them to put their differences aside, don’t get too caught up in that idea. Speaking with HuffPost, Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor discussed how much the two of changed, and how it informed how they approached the scene in his “Beyond the Wall” episode. But his comments didn’t end there.
“I love the fact that these two come back, they’re both lethal, and I just wanted to give the impression, as much as possible, that one of them is going to die. But you’re not sure which one. Something is coming very soon between them, and it will be violent but surprising.”
While there has been more than enough backstabbing in Game of Thrones between families, one family that has been at the short end of the stick from the very beginning have been the Starks. To see them together should have been a grand reunion. However, it seems that they’re really building to a potentially bloody end between these two.
So, of the two, who’s going to die? Hate to say it, but Arya may be too broken for her own good. While her bloodlust has done the show well, it’s something that’ll only serve as a liability down the line. Count me as Team Sansa here.
But what do you think? Do you think one of them will die, or is Taylor just pulling our legs? Let us know down below!
