I'll let that one slide with a bit of fanwankery to top it off because of the Melisandre prophecy bit (in the books Mel never met Arya). It's improbable that the NK after all the stuff he did could be outwitted by stealth, but it is what it is.


It proved harder to kill zombie Mountain than it was to kill the Night King. It doesn't get more ridiculous and incongruent than that.

Oh look. Another moron shows up.


You are the chief among morons arguing that a girl that begin killing people before she hit puberty and literally displayed her aptitude for fighting from the first scene is not good enough to kill the night king. Perhaps u imagine you would kill him with ur tight ass.

First fcuking scene of the show.

You're as smart as those halfwits that write this show. No wonder you love the absolute tripe they're peddling out.


Obviously you're smarter than everyone else.


Yet you refuse to enlighten TriniD with your wealth of knowledge regarding how the powerful Night King could be defeated.


Oh, please intelligent one, please enlighten us, and stop with the put-downs.


TriniD only wishes to be the beneficiary of your supreme intelligence, dat's why TriniD asked for your step by step scenario for defeating the Night King.

Because of the fantasy element, logic suggested that only one of three people would have been able to defeat the NK:

Jon Snow (because of Azor Ahai, and he wielded a Valyrian steel sword)
Dany (because of Drogon)
Bran (because "magical voodoo")

(of course, both Brienne and Jamie had Valyrian swords, and Sam gave Jorah his own... so those three may have been longshot alternatives)

The writers chose to make Arya the Prince(ss) that was promised.

Jon snow would have confronted the night king and challenged him to one on one combat for westeros.

The night king being an honorable man, would have jumped off his dragon and accepted. His wights would be given instructions not to get entangled in his duel, also the night king wanting to show to the audience his phenomenal sword play ability, would agree to further terms of not using ice spears or causing earth quakes to suck in jon snow, or blizzards to mess with his visibility.

They would show up the next day at high noon, get into a sweaty contest, swinging from chandeliers and sliding down banisters, where eventually jon snow would get his thrust in, striking the death blow to the night kings chest. Some white walker bimbo would rush to the night king, crading his head on her lap, sobbing. Zoom, out scene dims.

Thats how you do it man. Completely original and realistic.

Bruh, Yuh killing TriniD here. You're kidding, but maybe this is really how SnoopDog sees it.

The little annoying ninja's story arc revolved around seeking vengeance for the people who killed her father and then later who killed her mother and brother. She even had a little hit list which didn't include Mr. Night King at any point in time.

As for displaying her aptitude for fighting I'm guessing you missed season 5 in it's entirety where all she was made to do was wash clothes, sweep up shit, clean dead bodies, sell seafood, and oh yeah.....get the living snot kicked out of her be another girl until the end where she pulled a Rambo and somehow managed to kill the Waif.

Arya didn't learn sweet fcuk all in Braavos about anything. She failed the one time they asked her to pull off an assassination and promptly kicked her the fcuk out.

But somehow we were made to believe she had the cunning, stealth, and super human ability to penetrate into the Frey's household undetected, plan and execute the murder of all the male Freys. And not only murder them, she had the superhuman ability to stealthily cook all of them up (in the Frey's kitchen?) and made minced pie from the corpses.

Never mind that she flew out of nowhere like a little squirrel to stick the pointy end into that pussy Night King fellow.

I would have been cool with even Theon being the one.

It would have completed his redemption arc nicely and it wouldn't have been inconsistent with the rest of the story.

Do you think, some of the best ancient warrior cultures, shaolin monks spend all time kicking and punching in their training?
They do not, they spend time doing alot of mundane activities to develop discipline and other mental qualities.

The scene where she first gets to the house of black and white. The door was shut to on her. She waited in the rain and the sun etc and the door remained shut, she only left to get food.

This is very similar to the treatment of anyone wishing to learn fancy kung fu and approaching a shaolin monastery. The door was locked to them. Only when they had demonstrated commitment they were allowed to enter. This displayed that they would be able to endure the training ahead.

Among disguise, Arya learned how to fight, and fight in blindness. She learned to adapt to her adversary and outwit her. She learned the qualities to be the assassin that would be needed to defeat the night king.

Yes, and the monks who eventually become warriors did so because they didn't fail their tests and get kicked out for disobedience.

Among disguise, Arya learned how to fight, and fight in blindness. She learned to adapt to her adversary and outwit her. She learned the qualities to be the assassin that would be needed to defeat the night king.


That was the last episode of season 5 where she was still getting the living snot kicked out of her but somehow managed to kill the Waif despite not being a trained assassin and having flunked out of assassin school. This was also the episode where she got like 4 stab wounds to the gut, fell into raw sewage, and didn't die from an infection. Great writing.

IIRC in Braavos she got punished by assassinating Meryn Trant (because he was part of Joffrey's crew, and liked to beat little girls).

And she stole a 'face' or two before ditching Braavos. Whatever's said about how she got to and into The Twins, c'est la vie.

We can say she learned her cooking skills from Hot Pie! lol lol lol

I think Arya killing the NK was beautiful...her character was well developed to ultimately be an assassin

You mentioned that you could live wid effin THEON killin de Night King. Hmmmmm.

Like TriniD said, dat hints at your personal bias because you cannot see a girl as a hero.


You mentioned dat Arya's killin of de Night King was inconsistent wid de story, and TriniD argues otherwise.

Even though you are smarter dan TriniD, TriniD did do some research, and here's a video highlighting points as to why the Arya story is consistent.

At least you can give us dat, dat it is consistent.

How Game of Thrones Hinted THROUGHOUT the entire Series that Arya would make the Kill

Trant was on her original list. He was already a pretty despicable character up to that point in the show but Dumb & Dumber decided to up the ante by making him in a super-pedophile so psychotic ninja Arya's killing of him would seem even more deserved and just.

She was also given one assassination mission. Kill the old man by the pier by ostensibly using her deadly stealth and ninja skills at pretending to sell seafood and then poison him.

She didn't, and ended up stabbing Trant in the eyes in a brothel full of people. That's why they kicked her out of assassin school. Up to that point she hadn't learned anything of note or value. Where she learned how to be a super ninja assassin is still a mystery.

As for what happened in the Twins with the Freys. Laughable at best.

TriniD read 27k likes as opposed to 5.6k dislikes.

Apparently you are also a math genius.

Dude just own up to your bias. You mention Arya's "failures" DURING training.

You mention her lack of skill in one breath, then in the other breath, you said you'd be okay with THEON being the Night King killer, the ultimate useless skill less person.

Dude, just how many sides of your mouth are you gonna talk out of?

I'm not getting into deliberate half truths or whatnot, I'm a loyal show-watcher but I can't recall everything that went down in Braavos. I know that she struggled a lot to find her footing.
