New promo photos from season 7 of Game of Thrones show Arya Stark with a very familiar dagger. Now the question is: How did she get it?
recently had a photo shoot of the remaining Stark kids (Jon Snow, Sansa, Arya and Bran) reuniting. And I can't wait for them to be together again.
But the photos may have revealed a season 7 spoiler. At first glance, it just looks like a fun family reunion. But fans have noticed
that Arya has a dagger on her left hip that looks just like the Catspaw Dagger.
So what is the Catspaw Dagger? This was the blade that Jaime Lannister gave to an assassin to kill Bran while he was in a coma in Season 1. Fans on Reddit have traced
the dagger through the Game of Thrones
books and show and it seems like Littlefinger has it. He did use it against Ned Stark in Season 1.
Right now, Littlefinger has aligned himself with Sansa. While Jon Snow was just named King in the North, he's encouraging her to seize power and become Queen in the North. He's even talked about wanting to be on the Iron Throne with Sansa by his side. But Sansa's not an idiot. She knows Petyr Baelish always has ulterior motives. He was the reason she was with Ramsay Bolton. So this alliance might not be so stable.
Now the question is: How will Arya get the Catspaw Dagger from Littlefinger? And will she take it by force? Theories are swirling that these new pictures prove that Littlefinger's betrayal will finally come to light so Arya will kill Littlefinger and take the dagger. There are other theories that Arya could steal the Catspaw Dagger or find it somehow, though. She does look like she's sneaking around in the trailer.
Either way, Arya may need the dagger for a specific reason. Because the dagger is made from Valyrian steel, Arya could use the Catspaw Dagger to kill White Walkers in the upcoming war, especially since she'll be reuniting with her siblings soon. And it would be badass to see Arya killing some White Walkers.
Do you think Arya will kill Littlefinger? Will she use the dagger to kill White Walkers? Leave your comments below!
