Re: The Problem with Winterfell

I started this thread over a year ago. I just finished a rewatch of the entire series prior to the final season and I wanted to revisit my thoughts here because I was totally wrong. The following are my words and, boy, am I going to disagree with them. Sansa is the FOCAL point in Winterfell. No, she...

Re: The Problem with Winterfell

You are stating your opinions as facts as well, which some of mine are, but not all. Ayra is not an assassin. That is not an opinion. That is a fact. She did NOT carry out her assignments, because she was not an assassin and walked away from that life. She could not be "no one." Ergo, she is not an ...

Re: The Problem with Winterfell

OK, I'm going to try this one more time. 1. Just because both characters are in a scene does not make it from both points of view. The Sansa/Arya scenes are from Sansa's perspective. She is the lead in the scenes. She takes in the information, she leads the conversations. She reacts to what Arya say...

Re: The Problem with Winterfell

Arya is an assassin. That's what they do at the House of Black and White. They kill in exchange for money. She assassinated the money lender and has since been using her skills for personal reasons. But she's an assassin. If you mean the man who sold ship insurance, no, she didn't assassinate him. ...

I just can't. You're completely ignoring every single point of mine.

Re: Gendry theory

Ugh! it could be Sansa - technically it was meant to be as she was bethrothed to Robert's first born, Gendry not Geoffrey. Although, I'd rather it be Arya. It was not meant to be. She was not betrothed to Robert's first born. She was betrothed specifically to Joffrey . The line from Robert: "You ha...

Re: The Problem with Winterfell

But we aren't just seeing Sansa's story at Winterfell. We're also seeing Arya and Bran's experience at Winterfell. You see Arya not quite fitting in, of still dealing with childhood resentments. No, we are not. We are seeing Sansa's story. That is it. We are seeing Arya reacting to Sansa's storylin...

Re: The Problem with Winterfell

An assassin has little to do at Winterfell. Perhaps it will be the impetus for Arya to move on. Bran has moved beyond Winterfell and Starks, so if Winterfell isn't being seen through his eyes, then that reflects the character too. You just actually made my point for me. Why aren't we seeing THESE s...

Re: Gendry theory

I don't see how Arya is even remotely too far gone. She hasn't killed anyone who didn't harm or kill anyone else before her. She's actually been shown very specifically to NOT kill or harm anyone who didn't deserve it. She didn't kill the actress she was ordered to do so by the Faceless men. She did...

The Problem with Winterfell

I'm not a Sansa or Sophie Turner hater, (I like Sansa way more on the show than I ever have in the books due to Turner's portrayal), but I do think that D&D favor the actress to the point where they have positioned her more prominently than perhaps the character should be. And that is why I think we...
