‘Vulnerable’ Arya Will Get ‘Challenged For The First Time’ In Season 6

arya blindOne thing that we have learned after watching 5 seasons of Game of Thrones is that Arya somehow manages to stay on top of things despite being in difficult situations. However, it seems that this season will be somewhat different for the youngest Stark girl, according to Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner. Speaking to TVLine, the on-screen sisters revealed that season 6 will find Arya in a pretty bad place. Williams says:

“She’s still very much the student. And she’s still very much the underdog. She’s not the same Arya that we’ve seen in previous seasons. Sometimes, you watch Arya scenes and you think, ‘She’s got this. Don’t worry.’ This is a season where you watch and go, ‘Oh, she really doesn’t.'”

Turner agrees:

“[Arya is ] so vulnerable this season, and it’s so exciting to see her in that place, because you see her as this badass. And she still is a badass. But she’s been dealt the upper hand and she’s been very lucky, and this is about her really getting challenged for the first time. It’s going to be a big season for her.”

Williams added that Arya has indeed lost her vision and is feeling very lonely while she tries to learn as much as possible from The Waif & Jaqen H’ghar:

“At the beginning, she’s like, ‘Whether or not I like it, I have to trust these people.’ The feisty Arya doesn’t kick in until a little bit later. She starts rebelling, and she gets her confidence back.”
