    "Game Of Thrones" Is Probably Bringing Back This Fan Fave Next Week

    This is going to be good.

    Warning: contains spoilers for Season 7 of Game of Thrones!

    HBO

    We're one episode down in Game of Thrones Season 7, and the teaser for Episode 2 looks so damn good.

    Especially the part where it looks like Nymeria and Arya are going to be reunited at last!!

    THE MOMENT WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR. #GameofThrones

    You'll probably remember that Nymeria is Arya's direwolf, who she sent away in Episode 2 after the wolf attacked Joffrey in defence of Arya.

    Sansa's direwolf, Lady, was executed in Nymeria's place, meaning both Stark girls were without the protection of their direwolves in the hell that was King's Landing.

    Fans have been speculating that Nymeria would appear in Season 7, since Arya is currently in the Riverlands (where she let Nymeria go), and there was this shot in the trailer that looked like it could be from the perspective of a wolf:

    It seems like this is one time when fan speculation is spot on.

    NYMERIA AND ARYA REUNITING NEXT WEEK I CAN'T #GameOfThrones

    WHICH IS VERY EXCITING.

    Nymeria and Arya reunion next week! #GameofThrones #GoTAtlantic #GoTS7

    THAT NYMERIA ON THE TRAILER!!!!!!!!! #GameOfTrones

    Apparently Nymeria coming back is an actual thing that might be happening this is all I've wanted since season 1… https://t.co/LFP5ZVX0DX

    But what does it mean?

    HBO

    As great as it would be to see Arya fucking up her enemies with her direwolf by her side, it seems unlikely Nymeria will become Arya's sidekick after years of running wild. I mean, if that wolf is Nymeria, she's not looking super friendly. In the books, she's the leader of a wild pack of wolves in the Riverlands, so there's a good chance that's what we'll see on screen. Nymeria's wildness could serve as a mirror for Arya's, as she runs around Westeros viciously murdering her enemies.

    On the other hand, a momentary meeting between the pair could serve as a reminder to Arya of her roots, and how wolves are stronger in packs. Perhaps it'll set her on the path to Winterfell, instead of King's Landing as she stated in the premiere. And, of course, this being Game of Thrones, there's a chance Nymeria will return only to die (RIP Shaggydog, RIP Summer, RIP all direwolves and other characters who deserved better).
