7. Is Arya playing the Game of Faces, or is she just being unreasonable?
Arya and Sansa have always had a lukewarm response to each other mainly because of their differences in interests and ages. I was a bit displeased at their less than exciting reunion as their happiness to see each other was quickly thwarted by their suspicion for each other. Granted, as of episode 6 many are speculating that Arya is playing the Game of Faces with Sansa as part of their plan to trap Littlefinger. It would make sense, because you would assume that Arya had to mature much more quickly than any of her siblings after the events of season 1. I’m not sure she would truly believe that Sansa was not held captive by the Lannisters and forced to write that letter. We spent many years with the Starks being physically separated, and with it becoming Sansa vs. Jon, and Bran distancing himself from his family name we don’t need Sansa and Arya to be on the outs as well. Not only is this not fair to the audience, but it’s not fair to Sansa who has earned her fair share of faith and respect.
