Be warned: Here there be spoilers! If there's one person you don't want to meet in a dark alley of Westeros, it's Arya Stark, aka the Faceless Man, known IRL as actress Maisie Williams. One of Game of Thrones' deadliest characters, her skill with a sword and dagger is only surpassed by her eerie ability to take on the faces of her victims. So, recently, when some behind-the-scenes footage of her EPIC sword fight with Brienne of Tarth surfaced, the Internet went nuts. See for yourself, below.
This is Arya Stark.
Over the seasons, we’ve watched her go from plucky princess, to struggling survivor to straight-up badass. Point is, Arya is no joke, which plenty of unlucky people have discovered time and time again in GOT.
Arya is not the type of person you want to meet on a dark night...
Remember when she killed an entire hall of men barely even lifting a finger? Or how about that time she left her mentor to die (RIP The Hound, aka Sandor Clegane) without shedding a tear?
*Psst! Psst! He survives!*
Arya Stark is a freaking boss.
Seriously, even her mentors, The Hound (Sandor Clegane) and Brienne of Stark, both notable badasses on their own are like – ‘nope, not crossing her, not even on a good day.’
She even scares her own sister, Sansa, and that’s saying something. Remember, Sansa survived Joffrey.
And speaking of mentors...
Meet Brienne of Tarth. Finest
lady warrior in all of Westeros. Definitely the most honorable. Here’s a woman who puts a premium on loyalty and honesty – both qualities in very low supply in the Seven Kingdoms.
Also, she’s a beast with a broadsword.
And this season, Arya and Brienne engaged in an EPIC sword fight at Winterfell.
It was freaking awesome. So awesome, Youtube user Omid G even put lightsabers on the fight, which made it even more awesome – something that didn’t even seem possible.
But you know what was even more awesome than the lightsaber version of the fight?
