So there may not have been much in the way of battles or deaths, but the first episode of the final Game of Thrones season still had lots to discuss.
Well, one thing that was clear from her reunion with Gendry is that she’s obviously preparing herself for the coming war. And she doesn’t want to go into it empty-handed.
One end is clearly labeled “dragonglass” — so we know it’s a weapon designed to kill White Walkers.
People on Reddit had some thoughts as well:
That spear idea is an interesting one, and it was echoed in Vanity Fair’s theory that the weapon may be two in one — a sort of double-ended spear that separates into two shorter daggers.
From the close-up image, it sure looks like it has two pointy ends, although it’s worth noting that only one has the “dragonglass” label.
On the other hand, one part of the weapon definitely slots into the other part — so the two-in-one theory seems solid.
One thing is for sure that Arya Stark is going to be a pure badass this season than ever before.
