Game of Thrones gave Arya one of her most affirming moments

Arguable I know

In Sunday's episode "The Spoils of War", Jon took Daenerys into a cave to show her some super convenient cave paintings that he probably painted himself depicting the Children of the Forest and the First Men teaming up against the White Walkers.

So when we recently caught up with Shepard on the set of a top-secret amusing or Die project, we asked the 42-year-old actor to take on our Wildfire Fast Five quiz - and apparently he's a big fan of the smoldering sexual tension between Daenerys and Jon. Arya finally arrives at the gates of Winterfell, but she's not welcomed with open arms at first.

When Olenna was at Dragonstone, she told Daenerys to "be a dragon". Suffice to say, quite a lot has happened since she's been away.

But that's not how people remember her.

After last week's emotional and downright weird reunion between Sansa and Bran, another member of the Stark family has rejoined the others at Winterfell: Arya Stark, portrayed by Maisie Williams. And it seemed important to Arya for Sansa to see what she is capable of, but it remains unclear why. In her eyes, Sansa is still the tomboyish girl from their childhood.

DS: Bran, Sansa, and Arya have all made it home, and yet their home feels different, even unsafe, as conflict brews in Winterfell.

At King's Landing Cersei is still entertaining Tycho Nestoris from the Iron Bank, who is now more than pleased with the news that the Lannisters debt will soon be paid off in full, though they will miss the interest payments.

That changes very quickly. She isn't just a contender in the ring; she's someone who actually scares Brienne. Sansa finds Arya, and the two embrace. In the ensuing minutes of the fight, we learned one thing.

Episode four titled "The Spoils of War" saw one of the most epic clashes ever seen in the hit HBO series as Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) finally took charge after a series of humiliating defeats. The bad news is, we didn't know who we were supposed to be rooting for. After a moment's pause and Brienne offering to get the "Master at Arms", Arya insists that it be only Brienne, due to her mother's oath.

Chances are we'll know more next week, and as of yet, this is all speculation.

Their conversation is interrupted when Bran's travel companion Meera enters to tell him that she will be leaving Winterfell and returning to her family.

The fact is that not only is Arya a master of disguise and assassination, she is also one of Westeros' greatest fighters in one-on-one combat.

This is the version of Arya we've been waiting for.

I was chatting with a friend after the show, and he made the point that George RR Martin never would have let Jaime survive the fight.

Tyrion and Jaime have had far too little time on screen together and the show could use much more of the Lannister brothers being together, especially in light of what has just been revealed to Jaime.

The last remaining question is whether her family will stand behind Arya in her mission to murder everyone on her list, including Cersei Lannister, who now sits on the Iron Throne.
