Game Of Thrones fans react to "emotional" reunion between two key characters

Game Of Thrones fans react to

That's exactly what we got, as Sansa and Arya embraced and even joked around with one another.

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams admitted they "f***ed up" lines while filming their long-awaited on-screen reunion on "Game of Thrones". (Chaos, after all, is a ladder that provides opportunities for ambitious men, as Littlefinder once told Varys - a quote Bran throws back in his face, as a hint that he's seen more of Littlefinger's behavior than any double-dealing schemer could want.) While the show hasn't explored who's truly behind the assassination attempt, in George R.R. Martin's novels, Tyrion later hypothesizes that Joffrey was behind the assassination attempt, for some fairly elaborate and not entirely convincing reasons. I don't think we need to go that far; I've always thought of the Three-Eyed Raven as a job title that's passed down over the generations, with Bran simply being the most recent person to hold the gig.

After fighting the assassin off (with the help of Bran's direwolf) Catelyn Stark brought the weapon with her to King's Landing where she gave it to Ned. And if Bran knows all the nefarious deeds Littlefinger's had his hands in - murdering Lysa, kissing Sansa, etc. - it's only a matter of time till Bran tells Sansa or Arya what he knows (assuming he still feels like speaking to them). Littlefinger, not for the first time but less often than most, is afraid. Since Bran now just sits around and pisses off his friends by saying demented shit, he gives the dagger to Arya, who then uses it in a sparring session with Brienne of Tarth. "Chaos? A gaping pit waiting to swallow us all", Varys replies. Emotionless Bran mumbled something about how "chaos is a ladder" and obviously had no interest in keeping it, so during the reunion with Arya, he gifts the infamous dagger to her. Many who try to climb it fail, never to try again. And some, are given a chance to climb.

As Littlefinger passes the notorious blade to Bran, he mentions another, less intriguing dagger: the anonymous one used to cut Catelyn's throat during the Red Wedding. But they refuse. They cling to the realm or the gods or love. Only the ladder is real. If anything, that sparring session could serve as violent foreshadowing to what Arya's capable of doing with the dagger. We can only guess how exactly she intends to use it (or we can ask Bran, since he claims to have seen everything), but rest assured it'll play an important part in the episodes to come. After all, if it started everything, it could end everything, too.
