The dust is settling from the season seven premiere of Game of Thrones. Dany has arrived at her ancestral home of Dragonstone, Sam is making headway on how to defeat the white walkers by sneaking forbidden books through the Citadel, and Arya Stark is wiping out entire households and changing the entire political landscape of the north. The plot is moving along, and the episode two preview shows what could be the greatest reunion ever seen in the whole of Game of Thrones.
Yes, it looks like Arya and her direwolf Nymeria are back together again. This was the last time we saw these two together, back in season one.
Or is that another direwolf from the pack Nymeria leads in the books? This direpupper doesn’t look that friendly, but I’m guessing Nymeria will bump this ferocious (but good) wolf aside and put her pretty head into the arms of Arya just when things are looking… Dire. (Sorry.)
If this is the reunion we think it is, Arya Stark is even more dangerous to her enemies than before. We heard that Robb Stark’s wolf, Grey Wind, was able to turn the tides of battle back when they both had heads, and we’ve seen first hand that Ghost is to be reckoned with. If Nymeria is back and with a crew of other =wolves ready to fight for Arya, then this can get very interesting.
So will Arya become a pack leader if the above comes true? Or will it just be her and Nymeria working to survive? In the books, specifically A Dance with Dragons, Arya’s dreams through the eyes of Nymeria. Will we see her quasi-warg abilities start to develop?
