Are Arya And Nymiria Going To Reunite Next Episode?
Season 7 looks like it's going to be full of reunions and first time encounters we can't wait to see. Will the Starks finally come together again after so long? What will it be like when Jon and Dany meet? And will Arya and Nymiria, her direwolf reunite?
Thanks to the promo video for the second episode of season 7, "Stormborn", this looks more likely than not.
In the video played right after the season premiere, we see a snarling wolf immediately followed by Arya with a shocked look on her face. However, not everyone thinks the wolf we saw if Nymeria.
The Last Harpy explains in their most recent video.
The wolf pictured in the preview clip looks completely different than Nymeria. While it is possible the direwolf's appearance changed over the years (as Summer's did), there might be a better explanation that it's just a different wolf. After all, compared to pictures of Ghost, the wolf is way too small.
In addition, Maisie Williams posted on Instagram earlier that she was filming in Canada, where clips of the real wolves are shot (the direwolves are just CGI now). Maisie might not be here unless she was interacting with non-direwolf.
The good news is that this does not rule out a reunion with Nymeria.
From the books, we know Nymeria ended up as the leader to a huge pack of wolves in the Riverlands, where Arya is now. This would prime a meeting between the two.
According to the Last Harpy, the wolf pictured is probably trying to attack Arya, as the two images of the wolf snarling and Arya's scared face might suggest. After all, it is cold now, so the wolves would have less to eat. Nymeria would most likely come into the picture to save Arya from the wolf.
Whether the wolf pictured is Nymeria or not, it looks like the next episode is our best chance to see this hopefully heartfelt reunion.
What do you think will happen?
