Between Jon Snow (Kit Harington) getting to know his genuine identification and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) locking eyes with the alive-and-well Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), remaining night time’s Game of Thrones season 8 most useful became as dramatic because it becomes instantly-up awkward. The hour-long episode turned into an emotional rollercoaster from beginning to complete, but fans can at least rest easy (for now) knowing that the surviving Stark youngsters have been reunited lower back domestic in Winterfell.
Still, it is no longer just their togetherness this is giving us flashbacks to happier instances within the North: It’s the manner they’re wearing their hair, too. With her new half-up coiffure, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) is giving us serious Jon Snow vibes — a look they are able to each hint again to the man who raised them, Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark.
Arya’s emotional boom has been mirrored by means of her bodily evolution over the direction of the collection. In season one, she turned into just a younger lady of noble blood, sporting braids and training needlework — lots to her chagrin. Eventually, she reduces off a maximum of her hair into a boyish haircut to hide her identification whilst at the run from the Lannisters. Now, she’s a hardened murderer who prefers to hold her hair out of her face, just like her past due father did. Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), meanwhile, has had her half of-up twists compared to each her mother Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
Unsurprisingly, Arya and Sansa’s resemblance to their mother and father is extra than a coincidence: A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin even referenced it in the books, which one fan quoted in a tweet. “She had Ned’s lengthy face and brown hair,” Martin wrote of Arya. Now that she’s mimicking his signature hairstyle, too, the likeness is even stronger.
We don’t understand what season eight holds for Arya and her new updo — however looking this just like her father while taking down Cersei Lannister, the woman accountable for his death would be our concept of poetic justice.
