More Than A Million People Tweeted About Arya Stark In Less Than 30 Minutes
Spoilers are coming.
And not just any spoilers. *THE* spoiler. The spoiler we've been working up to for eight seasons now.
Arya. The Night King. Bam.
In the final moments of the Battle of Winterfell, Arya Stark goes full assassin and saves the motherf**kin' day.
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have known for at least three years that Arya would be the one to defeat the Night King, saying that it "didn't seem right" for that honour to go to Jon Snow.
"One of the great things about having this many people you care about in a sequence together is that it can kind of pull people's attention and focus to people that they care about a lot," Weiss said in the Inside The Episode video.
"You're going all over the place with people who you're desperately worried for, and hopefully you forget about the fact that Arya Stark ran out of that castle with the battle drums playing."
Roughly thirty minutes after the episode aired, more than a million tweets had been sent about Arya. A few minutes after that, it was more than 1.25 million.
Just make Arya Stark ruler of the Seven Kingdoms already and be done with it.
