Knowingand how much Martin loves to foreshadow the deaths of his characters before killing them off, it's totally possible that this quote could be a hint at Arya's fate. All in all, things aren't lookin' too hot for our girl. But there's hope for her yet! At a , Martin said Arya is his wife's favourite character.
