    We Need To Talk About Arya On "Game Of Thrones" This Week

    I have so many questions. Warning: SPOILERS!

    This post is full of spoilers for Season 6, Episode 8 of Game of Thrones. Proceed with caution.

    After a week of wild speculation based on some seemingly legit clues on the show, the answer to Arya's fate turned out to be much simpler than we thought.

    She really was stabbed by the Waif, and she turned to Lady Crane for help. When the Waif tracked her down and killed Lady Crane, the still-injured Arya led her on a parkour-laden chase through Braavos before finally luring her into the cave where she'd hidden Needle. In a bad-ass move, Arya killed the light and then the Waif, beating her in the dark easily thanks to all those blind training montages.

    While it is cool that Arya trapped the Waif, the episode made her prior moves seem incredibly silly and out of character, and left a lot of questions hanging.

    But at least the sequence did give us this triumphant moment.

    After over a season of trying to become "no one", Arya has finally truly reclaimed her identity and is heading back to Westeros. Complete with some bad-ass new skills and, um, possible invincibility to stab wounds.

    And it was enough to make fans really, really happy...

    THE WORST INTERNSHIP EVER IS FINALLY OVER #GameofThrones

    And issues with this week aside, it will be VERY interesting to see what Arya does next.

    ESPECIALLY IF IT INVOLVES ANOTHER STARK REUNION.
