Game of Thrones S07E01: Why Twitter is head over heels in love with the new Arya Stark

Game of Thrones premiered its first episode of season 7 and there is only one thing that GoT fans have been talking about- Arya Stark.

Game of Thrones season 7 aired its first episode “Dragonstone” last night and from the very first scene, the show had fans at the edge of their seats. The series opens with a badass scene involving our Faceless Men assassin Arya Stark. Even after having killed Walder Frey and his sons in the last season, Arya’s not done with her vengeance. In what can only be described as a massacre, Arya takes revenge on all of the Freys for the Red Wedding, where most of her family was murdered brutally.

Arya Stark’s iconic scene in the opening left fans with their jaws dropped to the floors as they could hardly believe how far she has come along, in her adroitness with killing and, in personality. The child that was once tormented is now a grown woman who is very much aligned with herself.

In another scene, featuring actress Maisie Williams’ favourite singer Ed Sheeran, Arya stumbles upon a group of Lannister soldiers in the Riverlands. When asked why she’s headed to King’s Landing, Arya replies, “I’m going to kill the Queen.” While everyone else around the campfire thinks she’s joking and breaks into a jovial fit, we know, that she means business. And that’s exactly what other fans saw and loved about this new and more confident Arya Stark.
