The first episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 was surprisingly soft given the literal explosion that ended Season 6. Everyone was just kind of positioning themselves for the action to come.
What wasn’t soft? That opening scene.
BOOM. Welcome to GoT scene history, Frey Massacre.
The way Arya took down the Freys lit the internet on fire, and for good reason. Dany better watch her back, because Arya might be the one fire that’ll scorch even The Unburnt.
She killed all the Freys. All the Freys.
And then left the room with some serious swagger.

Oh, and then she gallivanted off to kill Cersei. NBD. I think we’re all past the point of doubting her.

Not gonna lie, though — I was really hoping Arya would head off to Winterfell to reunite with Jon and Sansa, especially with Bran back south of the Wall.
Also, things on this show are going to get really interesting for Arya if Cersei decides to leave King’s Landing to go meet Daenerys or Jon. Of course, she’s so paranoid at this point, the woman will probably keep herself barricaded inside with the Mountain on guard and make Jaime do all the dirty work. Let’s be real.
