'That's not you': What Arya really said to her direwolf

29 July, 2017, 01:35 | Author: Laverne Higgins

Arya Stark was finally reunited with her direwolf Nymeria while heading back to Winterfell on Sunday's new episode, but it wasn't the attractive reunion that fans wanted.

Jon has had a huge character arc over the past couple of seasons, so it seems particularly egregious that Ghost hasn't appeared by his side - especially in this week's episode, when Jon chose to leave Winterfell and head south on a potentially deadly mission to meet Daenerys Targaryen, seemingly without his four-legged sidekick.

Did she really mean that wasn't Nymeria in the flesh? Arya realised she was trying to convince her to turn her back on her true nature, hence her "that's not you" line that has inspired so much immediate confusion. Arya said to Nymeria, "No, that's not you", leading some viewers to think it was a case of mistaken identity.

Noted Benioff, "This scene hearkens back to Season 1".

It was a case of every dog/wolf has its day, and after six seasons apart, a grown-up Arya finally crossed paths with her direwolf Nymeria.

Capstead Mortgage Corporation (CMO) Set to Announce Quarterly Earnings on Wednesday
Alliancebernstein L.P.'s holdings in Capstead Mortgage Corporation were worth $1,465,000 at the end of the most recent quarter. There is a strong perception that the best way to monitor the stock performance is through keeping an eye on the stocks chart.

"'That's not you' is a direct reference to what Arya herself said to her father when her father painted this picture for her of the life she could have as a lady of a castle and marrying some lord and wearing a nice frilly dress".

"Arya's not domesticated", Weiss adds, and so it would make sense that Nymeria wouldn't be either. The defiant Stark girl ended it with "That's not me", something echoed all these years later in "Stormborn".

"Once the wolf walks away, at first she's heartbroken to have come this close", he says, "and then she realizes the wolf is doing exactly what she would do if she were that wolf". "So they nearly just regard each other and go their separate ways". But Nymeria shows no sign of affection towards her former mistress - apart from the fact that her pack does not eat it - and leaves in the woods. The phrase "the lone wolf dies while the pack survives" has seemingly foreshadowed a grim ending for one of our remaining Starks, but did this episode see Arya dodge that bullet?

Arya and Nymeria first parted ways all the way back in Season 1, when the Stark daughter set her massive wolf free to save her from Cersei and Joffrey's clutches.

Arya asks Nymeria to come with her as she goes back home. (IDK, we're grasping at straws here!) Either way, here's hoping Nymeria isn't the only direwolf who gets some long-overdue face time in Season 7.
