Trust in Arya.
If you watched this week’s episode of Game of Thrones, you probably gasped and screamed “NOOOOOO!” when this happened.
But Redditor passingwisdom has some comforting words about why Arya is going to be just fine:
Ok…so we can all assume that fight scene was an act….but I figured its worth some suggestive ideas. So….
- Before the scene she was seen flaunting Money to the Westeros Captain in order to get the word out there that a young girl was on her way to westeros in the morning.
- Then she chooses an open spot to try and avoid an easy death check after the fight. (Bridge)
- We can assume she knows enough from training to figure the waif will attack to the body. So I believe she has 1 or more pigs blood pouches around her body. She knows where and how to do this because last episode…she saved the actress. The actress then provided her help to make the scene on the bridge large and realistic.
- She then leaves the water and leaves a trail of blood….to lead her enemys to her. Expecting an unarmed (because she choose not to show needle during the fight scene) and injured girl; they will instead walk down a dark alley and be met with an uninjured girl who knows how to fight in the dark and carrying a sword.
