In all the hubbub of the Oscars yesterday, you may have missed the new Game of Thrones footage that dropped with HBO's latest 2019 clip trailer:
And here's JUST the Arya Stark footage in wonderful GIF form in case that's all you care about:
Obviously this magical shot is exciting for any GoT fan, but it's also a subtle callback to Arya's story that will make you full-on weep. Let's jump back to Season 2, Episode 7, "A Man Without Honor" to dig in...
Anyway, in a rare moment of compassion, Tywin lets Arya have his mutton dinner and then he harps on about his family's legacy and Harrenhal — which was Harron the Black's legacy. "The greatest fortress ever built," he says.
He continues man-washing history saying Aegon Targaryen "changed the rules."
But then perfect human Arya Stark corrects Tywin saying, "Aegon AND his sisters."
LOL, Tywin here like, "Huh?"
Arya reminds him, "It wasn't just Aegon riding his dragon it was Rhaenys and Visenya, too."
Arya continued, "Visenya Targaryen was a great warrior. She had a Valyrian steel sword she called Dark Sister."
TL;DR Arya is a HUGE Targaryen fangirl. So it's EXTRA special for her to actually see a dragon just like the one her hero Visenya Targaryen once rode. (And, I ASSUME she'll be pretty psyched to meet Daenerys, too?!)
