It wouldn’t be a normal day in Westeros if the blood wasn’t freely flowing somewhere in the realm. There were quite a few poor, unfortunate souls that found themselves on the business end of a blade in Sunday’s episode, but none as sweet as the revenge executed by Arya Stark towards the end of the episode.
As you know, in season 2 Arya had her beloved sword Needle stolen from her by Polliver. Arya is particularly fond of this sword as it was given to her by her brother. Unfortunately, this is the same sword in which Polliver used to kill Arya’s friend Lommy.
When she spots Polliver heading into an inn, she immediately tries to pursue him. Of course, she is stopped, at least momentarily by The Hound.
In the clip, we see the ending of a conversation between Polliver and The Hound in which The Hound proceeds to tell Polliver that he is going to give him one of the chickens and that he will be the one of pay for it. Needless to say, when Polliver pulls his sword, an all-out brawl begins.
One by one, the Hound begins to dispose of the men. One of them even finds themselves getting stabbed in th most unpleasant of places…well, especially so for a person of the male persuasion. We even watch as someone mysteriously loses an eye on the Hound’s sword. (That was one of the more cringe-worthy moments, if you ask me.)
It is then that Arya sees her opportunity to strike. She breaks a glass over one of the men’s heads and runs them through with his sword. With the very same sword, she stabs Polliver in the back and retrieves her sword from his holster.
This is when things start to get really good. Arya takes a look at him lying there on the ground, and then proceeds to say the same words to him that he said to her when he stole her sword.
The rest…you’ll just have to see for yourself. Whether you missed it the first time, or you just want to re-live the action all over again, here is a look at a red band clip from last Sunday’s Game of Thrones Season Premiere where Arya gets her revenge.
** WARNING ** As I said, this is a red band clip. There is quite a bit of explicit language and bloody violence in this clip. If you are offended by such things, you probably should not watch this video. On the flip side, you probably wouldn’t be watching Game of Thrones either; however, you have been fairly warned. Otherwise, please enjoy!
Game of Thrones airs on Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. on HBO.
