Arya has been a formidable foe for everyone she's faced. With her Valyrian steel dagger on her, we think it's fair to say a white walker is making a run for her. Gulp.

We then get to see Ser Davos walking. This has got to be Winterfell, right?

Game of Thrones Quotes

Tis a big and beautiful world. Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it. I don't want to be most of us.


I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.

Tyrion Lannister
