Warning: Contains Spoilers
As you probably know (but if you don’t, turn away, beacuse spoilers), Arya Stark ticked a pretty massive name off her kill list this week.
After showing up everyone in any zombie movie how to evade the undead, and showing those kids from Jurassic Park how to really go undetected in a quiet room, Arya – with a little encouragement from Melisandre – was the one person to get close enough to the Night King and stick it to him.
As I’ve said before, while Jon Snow was basically playing hide and seek with a dragon (or was he distracting it??), Arya was busy getting the job done, getting up in the Night King’s grill and destroying his army in the process.
And while the completion of the mission sadly meant the end for the Red Witch, Arya still has prophecies to uphold and names to tick off her kill list.
The recent Battle of Winterfell, which played out during The Long Night, cut down Arya’s list by one or two names, but she’s still got a way to go.
The names she’s ticked off so far, by her own hand or not, are: Meryn Trant, Joffrey Lannister, Polliver, Rorge, Walder Frey, Tywin Lannister, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion and Melisandre – though those last two pretty much redeemed themselves in the latest episode.
While we’re not exactly sure of Arya’s feelings towards The Hound at the moment, two names very much still on the list are his brother The Mountain, and Cersei Lannister.
However, thanks to a hilarious appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we’ve now got another name on the young Stark’s kill list.
Check it out:
The Game of Thrones actors all appeared on a segment called Game of Phones, in which they answered confused fans’ questions about the show.
We see Bran warging to help someone find their keys, Cersei getting fed up with people shouting ‘Shame!’ at her, Samwell Tarly redirecting a mixed up Lord of the Rings fan, and Sansa explaining the difference between the books and the TV show.
As Arya, aka Maisie Williams, picks up the phone, she gets confronted with – yet again – someone underestimating her, saying: ‘Do you expect me to believe a 90 pound girl could defeat an army of White Walkers?’
Thankfully, she’s picked up a thing or two, and quickly fires back: ‘Listen here you little shit, I know where you live, and I’d be happy to add you to my list’.
So there you go, Todd is now on Arya’s kill list. Valar Morghulis.
