An Unnamed Catspaw

We first saw the dagger when a hired assassin attempted to kill a comatose Bran back in Season 1, Episode 2. “It’s a mercy,” the man said. “He’s dead already.” Both Bran’s mother, Catelyn Stark, who gripped the blade with her bare hands, and Bran’s direwolf, Summer, fought off the assassin, which is how the dagger ended up with …

'Game of Thrones': Who will live and who will die in the Battle of Winterfell?

'Game of Thrones': Who will live and who will die in the Battle of Winterfell? Last week "Game of Thrones" teased its biggest battle of all time. When it airs this Sunday, how many characters will make it out alive? And will that disappoint fans?

Princess Arya Stark is the third child and second daughter of Lord Eddard Stark and his wife, Lady Catelyn Stark. She is the sister of the incumbent Westerosi monarchs, Sansa, Queen in the North, and Brandon, King of the Andals and the First Men.

The dagger that was almost used to kill Bran has resurfaced in Game of Thrones . Viewers have noted that Bran looked a bit wistful as he handed Arya the dagger , as if he knows something bad is In the book’ s history , the Dark Sister sword eventually found its way to the Brynden Rivers, the man

Bran’s mother started to suspect that Bran’s fall from the tower and the attempt on his life were connected. She started to investigate and convened a secret meeting of those she trusted — Robb Stark, Theon, Ser Rodrik Cassel, Maester Luwin — to discuss her findings, which is how the dagger ended up with …

Ser Rodrik Cassel

The Stark’s master-at-arms pointed out that the weapon was “too fine” for a hired gun, being that the blade was Valryian steel, the handle dragonbone. “Someone gave it to him,” Cassel deduced. But who? The Starks assumed it was the Lannisters, and Theon offered to back up Robb. (“What, is there to be a battle in the godswood?” Maester Luwin quipped. Why, yes, and with this very dagger deciding the fight.) Not content to wait this one out, Catelyn set out for King’s Landing with Cassel to make further inquires, which is how the dagger ended up with …

'Game of Thrones' Final Season: 23 Burning Questions After the Battle of Winterfell

'Game of Thrones' Final Season: 23 Burning Questions After the Battle of Winterfell Here's what to expect as the HBO drama moves into its endgame.

Arya Stark rose to become one of the most beloved characters in Game of Thrones , but there' s a lot more to the character that the show left out. Along with getting the personality of the character perfect, Maisie Williams also had the right look to play Arya , even though there are some notable

Arya ' s Hidden Dagger . Possibly as part of the The Spirited Wolf deal for 43. Separately in the Shop for 30. Possibly as part of the following Deals: Lost Champions Deal for 56. Voyage to Braavos Deal for 61. Winterfell Market Deal for 14. As part of the following Packs: Lost Companions Pack for 224.

Catelyn’s manipulative childhood friend Littlefinger, at least for a brief while, reclaimed custody of the dagger, which had once been his. He lost it, or so he claimed, betting during a tournament. (Littlefinger claimed he made a bet with Tyrion Lannister, in which he backed Jaime Lannister in a joust against Loras Tyrell, which Jaime lost.) This, of course, was a lie, but the Starks fell for the bait, as well as Littlefinger’s promise to help them get to the “truth,” which is how the dagger ended up with …

Ned Stark

Ned, who was by then the hand of the king, kept the blade in his office, and put it on his desk during a pivotal conversation with Littlefinger about what to do regarding the line of succession after King Robert died. This did not go unnoticed, which is how the dagger ended up with …

This ‘Game Of Thrones’ ‘Alternate Ending’ Photo Shows The Night King’s Softer Side Just call him the Knight King. (Spoilers for Season 8, Episode 3 below) It seems that Vladimir Furdik, who played the Night King on “Game of Thrones,” did quite an honorable and gracious thing for Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) while the two were in full costume on set. 

Everything We Know About the Valyrian Steel Dagger . Do you like this video? "You told our mother this knife belonged to Tyrion Lannister. But that was another one of your lies it was yours.". ― Arya Stark to Petyr Baelish about the dagger , shortly before executing him with it.

It has had a long path to get back to Arya Stark. In Season Seven, Littlefinger gave the dagger to Bran Stark, who then gave it to Arya (in hindsight But, it makes for a satisfying conclusion to Arya ' s character arc—her years of training have all come to this. It' s also a satisfying conclusion to what is

Whether he swiped it off Ned’s desk or took it off Ned’s belt in the throne room, Littlefinger proved he had sticky fingers. He held the blade to Ned’s throat while gloating about how untrustworthy he is. Years later, in an attempt to prove that he was trustworthy, he inexplicably decided to present it as a gift, which is how the dagger ended up with …

Bran Stark

Littlefinger claimed that the last man who wielded the blade was the assassin who attempted to take Bran’s life, and offered to do “anything” to help out the last surviving Stark male heir.

Arya Stark

Bran handed the blade to his sister, claiming he didn’t want it and that it was wasted on him. But perhaps he knew all along that she could use it to protect him. He knew about her kill list and presumably about the people she had killed, so he made sure that an assassin’s dagger was in the hands of someone who could put it to good use. And that she did, not least by slicing Littlefinger’s throat and by stabbing the Night King with one of the few weapons that could kill him.

For anyone still wondering who had the blade before the assassination attempt on Bran — a mystery not quite resolved on the show — the books provide an answer. Together, Tyrion and Jaime figure out that it was King Robert who bet on the joust and won the dagger from Littlefinger, and that Joffrey “borrowed” his dad’s newly-won weapon when he hired the catspaw. In Joffrey’s twisted thinking, he was trying to provide Bran a mercy killing. In so doing, he gave the Starks the means to defeat the Night King.
