EntertainmentWhat Arya’s new weapon could mean for Game of Thrones
Does This Photo Prove Arya Stark Really Is Going To Kill An Ice Dragon On Thrones?
Going into Sunday’s landmark Game of Thrones episode, the secretly titled “Game of Thrones 70,” there are many questions. Most of them have to do with which beloved character will suffer a painful death at the hands of the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and his army during the imminent Battle of Winterfell. However, fan-favourite Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) has created a flurry of speculation around herself thanks to her brand-new weapon, fashioned by new boy toy Gendry (Joe Dempsie). From the jump, fans hoped the fancy new spear-like gadget was created with the goal of bringing down the Night King’s recently acquired stead, ice dragon Viserion.
(Spoilers ahead for “Winterfell,” episode 1 of Game of Thrones, season 8.)
In Game of Thrones’ season 8 premiere, Arya Stark reunites with her crush, Gendry, who’s also a blacksmith, and asks him to make her a mysterious new weapon. We only get a quick look at a design she’s drawn, but there are a few clues from Arya’s past about what the weapon could be.
Arya’s arsenal is fairly full already. In season 7, she got her hands on a new weapon, an unnamed dagger made of Valyrian steel, the same one used in an assassination attempt against her younger brother, Bran Stark. She also has her sword, Needle, which Jon Snow gave her in season 1.
Um, George R.R. Martin Might Have Spoiled Arya's Death on Game of Thrones Years Ago
If Game of Thrones has taught us anything, it's that no character, no matter how powerful, is safe from death. With the highly anticipated Battle of Winterfell upon us, fans are fearing the worst for some of our favourite characters, including Arya Stark. While we hope our weapon-wielding girl survives the battle, one Reddit user points out that a quote from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, published in 1996, might foreshadow Arya's death.
That weapon has served her well in the Water Dance sword fighting style, where she has to be agile and quick. But as she reminds Jon in “Winterfell,” it’s not made of Valyrian steel, so it’d be useless against the undead White Walkers coming from the north.
Presumably, the new weapon Arya is commissioning from Gendry will help her face off against White Walkers from a safer distance, rather than having to get up close to stab them with her Valyrian dagger.
We can see from the schematics that part of the weapon is made of dragonglass, a material that kills White Walkers and wights. It also looks like the dragonglass part is detachable and can be fitted inside a longer staff-like weapon, either with a hilt on the other end, or another stabby part.
Game of Thrones: Why Arya Isn't Planning on Returning Home to Winterfell
Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution. After the events of the Great War, Game of Thrones has left fans to wonder what will become of Arya Stark. During the course of eight seasons, we watched her transform from a lady of Winterfell to a world-weary warrior capable of assassinating Meryn Trant, the Waif, Walder Frey, Petyr Baelish, and the Night King - thanks to some encouragement from Melisandre about "brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes.

We also know from Arya’s training in seasons 5 and 6 that she’s skilled with a staff and with switching between weapons, as she does when she spars with Brienne of Tarth in season 7, with both Needle and her dagger.
So the new weapon she’s ordering could combine a staff and a dagger, to take full advantage of Arya’s training from different sources. And it suggests a weapon that can change states during combat, in order to invite more creative fight choreography.
She’s smart to be gearing up. Hopefully, she’s not the only one who gets a new White Walker-fighting weapon this season. Jon brought home stores of dragonglass from Dragonstone last season, so there should be plenty of material to go around in crafting creative weapons against the undead.
Some Game of Thrones fans think Arya actually died in last week's episode—here's why.
Some "Game of Thrones" fans are arguing that Arya Stark actually died in the most recent episode—and they have compelling evidence.
