First official clip of Arya from Season 5

Arya-2

Maisie Williams made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where she talked about the upcoming season of Game of Thrones.

Of major interest, however, is the exclusive clip that was shown, teasing a scene from the beginning of Arya’s storyline this season.

Spoilers and video below the cut.

The clip shows Arya approching the doors of the House of Black and White in Braavos. After a brief back and forth with the priest/acolyte, she is denied entry.

Cian: This may well lead to a confrontation between a wandering Arya and some street thugs – the confrontation being resolved by a “mysterious character” – as detailed in this post. Given what we now know about actors from previous seasons returning to the show, book readers can draw their own conclusions.

    1. ctid,

      Haha I don’t know how to do spoiler tags so I must resort to code language and/or puns.

      Edit:

      I just realised how stupid I am, the instructions were right there in front of me

      It’s like she was trying to get past a bouncer at a club I’m laughing what a great scene.

      “I am 18! And I’m a friend of Jaqen!”

      “Of course you are, now PISS right OFF!”

      Wait… did she say she’s getting “TWO” new dresses this season?

      Oh lord… Have mercy.

      In the trailer, she has a simple robe on picking up needle, and her one from EW cover

      Though I imagine we won’t see much of him; if the rumors are true, he’s gonna put on Jaqen’s face, presumably for the whole season.

    7. I like Arya just fine (she’s in my top 5 characters) but Arya’s fans slowly become as anoying as Daenerys’ haters. Her fans always state their love for her with only the slightest context (same as with haters of Daenerys) and complain of that she gets too few scenes.

      That said, I actually look forward to her storyline which should provide us with nice character development and hopefully some breathteaking sets (I wish I could see behind this door).

      You’re seriously complaining about Arya fans being excited about her only decent teaser clip of the season? If you don’t like it, scroll.

      Also, she gets less and less time each season. It is a fact, despite her having so many chapters in the book.

    9. urstupid,

      She got six episodes in season 4 despite appearing in only two chapters in the book how is that shortchanging in any way? Additionally, her scenes were just character developement and didn’t move the plot along (with the exeptions of the scenes in 401 and 410). I don’t mind this because the Arya/Hound trip was extremely enjoyable and character development is necesarry but the argument that she gets shortchanged is simply wrong. Additionally, I’m very glad they started to use longer (and fewer) scenes of every character instead of cramming every main character in most episodes (season 2).

      Furthermore, she didn’t appear much in promotional material because it’s very spoilery (the same goes for Sansa but she got one dialog scene early from the season and we were able to get many tidbits about her storylines from small bits in the trailer).

    10. IIRC

      this dialogue with the kindly man happends inside the HoBaW in the books. And its when he tries to scare her off with the skull-face where she tries to eat the worm from his eyehole. I like the way they did it.

    11. I have a feeling Arya’s stuff this season will be incredible

      If they adapt the mercy chapter play.. Then it will be amazing cuz if we are right about Sansa being fake Arya, it will be hilarious to see Arya playing Sansa as well 🙂

    12. HelloThere,

      They aren’t.

      We did see them filming the equivalent of the “Mercy” chapter, but Arya wasn’t Mercy in that scene, and there was no play. The same basic plot development remains: a Crown envoy (Mace Tyrell instead of Harys Swift) is sent to negotiate with the Iron Bank, and he’s escorted by someone who is on Arya’s list (Meryn Trant instead of Raff the Sweatling); and Arya kills him. So, they’re essentially the same “bones” of the story, but the context is different: in what we saw of the scene, Mace and Tycho Nestoris were discussing stuff at the gate of the Iron Bank when Arya, as Cat of the Canals (with the cart and everything), notices Ser Meryn. Presumably she’ll do something like in the ‘Mercy’ chapter to get Meryn out of sight, and then she’ll kill him.

      By the way, reading your post I just had a wild speculation…

      If ever (not a fan of the idea but if ever) Sansa is fArya, it’d be cool to have Arya playing in a theater play the role of Sansa at her wedding with Tyrion (similar to something we know happens in book 6) and have the theater play make an evil Tyrion that abuse Sansa at her wedding in the same episode as Sansa would marry Ramsay as fArya.

      Of course I dont think that will happen because I dont think Sansa will marry Ramsay, but well, it was a funny thought.

      Has anyone discussed the idea of the show marrying Robin to fArya? I mean, the Boltons are already the King in the North practically. They doesn’t need the marriage as much as they did in the books. Gives a better reason for Sansa in Winterfell….

    19. I just realized… Linda from Westeros is gonna be so pissed about the Kindly Man being black, right? I mean, her deal seems to be that everyone who is white in the books —that is, almost everyone— should be white in the show or else it’s caving in to evil politically correct appeals to diversity (the FOX News comparison someone made the other day really is perfect.) So I can’t imagine she’ll be happy about that.

      I mean… she recently said that choosing the actors they did for Areo Hotah and the Sand Snakes were “idiotic casting decisions.” Because of their acting ability? Nope:

      why the fuck couldn’t they just have avoided casting people who couldn’t possibly fit with the backgrounds given in the books? Oh, of course, I forgot. “Diversity”. Yawn.

      I kinda want D&D to cast, I don’t know, a black person to play a Targaryen, just to see if her head would explode.

      This, a hundred times. It’s the equivalent of those people saying you can’t cast Idris Elba as Heimdall in the Thor movies because of “Norse mythology.” Even though it takes place on another fucking planet. It’s too easy to turn this into a bash-Linda session so I’ll try not to, but generally, unless we’re talking about a historic film about a historic figure that’s mean to be the height of realism (say, casting Angelina Jolie as Josef Stalin and Denzel Washington as FDR), it’s a ridiculous argument.

      It isn’t the same as captioning, I know, but here’s the dialogue from the clip:

      Jaqen H’gar gave me this.

      F.O.M.: No one here by that name

      A: Please. I crossed the Narrow Sea. I have no where else to go.

      F.O.M: You have everywhere else to go.

      A: But wait…

      “A” is Arya, of course, and “F.O.M.” is Fuck Off Man. 🙂

    33. A nice clip!

      It’s interesting that they have apparently changed how the HoBaW works, in the book everyone can get in the temple. I guess denying Arya entrance at first is the show’s version of the kiss test in the book, like someone already pointed out.

      Wow,

      Maggie’s spoilers about 5×02 are amazing (if they are true)! I’m happy she didn’t spoil all of it, I don’t know if I’d be able to resist reading them even though I really want to experience the episode without knowing everything about it.
      Edit: We haven’t seen anything that would indicate that the FM use black and white cloaks in the show, have we? The priest in this clip doesn’t, so maybe they’ve changed their look for the show. Damn, I liked that detail.

      Maybe her mood will brighten when the black man changes his face and becomes a white man? It will be as if the unspeakable evils of equal-opportunity casting are melting away beneath the fury of her disapproving glare.

      On second thought, it won’t matter because he won’t be the right white man from the books. Tom Wlaschiha’s return to the series may be enthusiastically welcomed by book readers and Unsullied viewers alike, but by God he and his striking Teutonic features aren’t good enough for her. She’ll still be pissed.

      My daughter’s name is ‘Aria’, which has it’s roots in music, and the wind. It wasn’t another year before I had even heard of this series. Supposedly, Arya is one of the most used names for girls since the show has been aired, which is a little strange. My girl will be just ahead of the wave.

      Cool clip! the KM, or rather, the GTFOM- looks cool. I like the casting. I hope they give him some considerable screentime before the

      Jaqen “face off”, to build that reveal up a bit.

    37. I think I’ve figured out what the shocking episode 3 moment is based on Maggie’s information and other reports.

      I think LS will be the reveal of the episode (certainly episode 2 points in that direction), but the WTF-ness of it won’t be so much the character itself but that she is played by another actress: Stella McCusker, who is already *confirmed* to appear in episode 3. Look at these clips and tell me she doesn’t look like a weathered, older version of Michelle Fairley https://youtu.be/WHdAyHF-MDc?t=1m20s And it explains why Michelle Fairley’s agent said she was not contacted.

      1. Ralf Kenning — “Theon Greyjoy…or whoever the fuck you are.”
      2. Dying man (Barry McGovern) in the Arya/Hound “Dyin’s thirsty business” scene.
      3. The guy in Fleabottom railing against the nobles and referring to Tyrion as a “demon monkey.”
      4. Craster’s oldest wife, who spits at the ground of the keep and tells the Night’s Watch to burn the entire thing down.

    42. Are you guys as surprised as I am, at how it looks like D&D are actually staying very close to Dance/feast in season 5.
      I mean Sansa and Briennes arcs are clearly diverging heavily, and Jamie is going to Dorne, which he never did in the books, but regarding the other storylines they seem to actually stick with the two demanding novels.

      HERE BE SPOILERS!!!!! I cant figure out how to use the spoilertags though.

      – The Wall storyline seem to be following the the book-arc very quite closely and keeps all the good stuff. The fascinating Jon/Stannis and Jon/Mel interactions seems to be a big point in the show, judging from reviews and rumor, which is promising. Also the big moments that were amazing in an otherwise slightly dragging storyline, seems to be included. Mance gets burned, the election i happening in some form (complete with new book additions Bowen Marsh and Denys Mallister), Hardhome is in (bigger and bloodier) and I hope hope hope and also believe that the Edd-Fetch-Me-A-Block scene will also be included. So The Wall-arc will be a lot like its book counterpark, but seem to be more focused and momental than it was.

      – Kings Landing and in this regard Cerceis storyline also seem to be presented very closely to the source material, complete with the Maggie The Frog flashback, Tywins Funeral, the return of Kevan and Lancel, an enhanced role for Qyburn, the inclusion og Robert Strong, the rising tention between the two queens fighting for the boy king. And of course a heavy focus on the new terrifying antagonists The Sparrows, which for me were of the most fascinating part of Feast, ending with the walk of shame, which will definately enter the group of classic Thrones-scenes.

      – Aryas arc seems equally close to the books, and I am most surprised (and very happy) that they seem to focus heavily on the religion aspect of that storyline, which is one of the most creepyly complex parts of Feast, and is gonna look so well.,

      – In Mereen, to me, it looks like the showrunners have chosen to have The Sons Of The Harpy be kinda the center conflict of that arc (much like the books). This is great and I think its gonna play out in a great way, apparantly ending differently with The Sons attacking Dany directly in Daznaks Pit. The Pit scene itself will probably be one of the seasons biggest moments. Also little gems from Dance seem to have made it in there. I’m thinking about the small tragic subplot with Stalwart Shield, Danys dualling relationships with Hizdahr and Dario, Barristan Selmys informing Dany about the true nature of her Father and the same Selmy apparantly having an epic fight.

      – Tyrion wil Dany in season 5, and though this a big (but great) change, the rest of his storylinem, the journey leading up to it, will apparantly be very close to the source material. He starts off in Pentos, drinking himself blind, gets persuaded into joining Danys course and sets out to find her. Volantis is in, in a big way, complete with The Long Bridge and the city’s heavy influence of the red religion. The sorrows seems to be in a as well, and Tyrion and Jorah will be slod as slaves.

      – We dont know much about Winterfell, but we know there will a wedding, and that they are trying to secure their hold on the North and possible heading to war with Stannis, which is all directly from the books. I expect it will be done in a different way, but the main points will be the same.

      – Yes, I know, Sansa is going to winterfell in the show. That is a drastic change from the books, but still… right now we know that in the first episodes she will be touring the Vale, which she did in the books, so it starts of the same way.

      Brienne I dont know, but the rest seem to actually be made very close to the materail. What do you guys think?

    43. Greatjon of Slumber,

      Great idea. I love the show for their many minor characters that stand out. Those are great, espicially agree on Ralph Kenning and Moregg Craster. The Moregg actress really drives home the fierceness and Kinda tired wisdom of her character, while Kenning is a great example of a true ironborn. Stubborn, gruff, brave and hopelessly misogynistic. And of course the dying man too. Here are ny additions. – Ironborn Sailor, the very first person Theon meets at the Pyke Harbour. An old man who, like Kenning, comes across as a true ironborn. Equally stubborn, gruff and mysogenystic. – The farmer in Breaker of Chains. Sallys father, who hosts arya and the hound. His piety is particularly Well presented in my opinion, his reciting of prayers is a great detail. – Zallas father, the man who bringes Dany his daughters bones. Just broke my heart in completely invented language. – The captains daughter that Theon has sex with. I really feel like the actress read the chapter, because her portrayal of the naive young girl is particularly close to her book counterpart. I’ll post more suggestions as there are so many. Come on guys, expand the list and let us celebrate this amazing cast

      Totally. If we bumped this up to people who showed up in 2-3 episodes, you’d have a ton to work with. On that kind of scale (basically anyone less important than Meryn Trant and people with fewer appearances than Yoren, who was in 5-6 episodes, and not an actor of the calibre or recognition level of Mark Gattis, Lucian Msamati or Indira Varma), I’d go like this:

      1. Wisdom Hallyn – His gleeful look when the flames go up is a thing of beauty. Everyone else is appropriately terrified or unsettled, but he’s just so thrilled his damned invention works.
      2. Mord – the gaoler in the Eyrie. I friggin’ love that guy. “NO GOLD! NO GOLD!”
      3. And to continue that journey of Tyrion’s, Shagga. If only for Tyrion’s “Shagga Likes Axes” line.

Who cares about strategic planning when you can just show you’re a fucking jackass.

      On the subject of the colour-blind casting…maybe someone should forward that article to Linda. It addresses (i.e. destroys) most of her “points”. Off-topic sorry, but a good read.

      “butchering the character”? Really? Appart from the fact that show!Arya doesn’t have to be like in the books, I can’t even begin to understand why you would think that Maisie Williams is “”butchering the character”.

      To say that Arya is comedic relief in the show is just wrong. She might have some funny scenes, but overall her story arc is dark as hell. And she isn’t acting the same as in season 1. Frankly you must be blind not to see that. The character went from cute tomboy to ice cold killer…

      By butchering the character she is meant to be playing?

      lol gimme a break. I think she is amazing as Arya and continues to be one of the best things about this show.

    56. Greatjon of Slumber,

      YES! I also think they did nailed the iron born. I just hope they continue their fine job and delve more into the iron born in season six or onward. Unti now they have it down and its a great kinda brutal part of the show that really makes westeros in the show fleshed out by having all these great and very different people. The Ironborn, like the Dornish, really bring that complexity to Westeros, that is so fascinating. Now just do like you did with the Dornish, D&D, and gives us just a tiny delving into and continuation on that story, that doesnt only focus and Theon and Yara. They would do Euron so well and the character would stand in category with Tywin, Joffrey, Ramsay and The Mountain as the shows great villains. Give us Damphair too, he’s one of Cogmans favorite characters, so I feel like he would nail him in his writing. Come on man! You absolutely nailed Theon, You created a great, weird, complicated relationship between the two Greyjoy siblings, The switch from Theon having a small fleet to him being ridiculed by his family by recieving a single ship The Seabitch which is already and established ship with a notoriously brutal crew, Black Lorren is an example of a dump ironborn raider, Dagmer an example of a smarter one, You gave us Ralph Kennning to remind us what an true ironborn is, And above all loomed Balon Greyjoy as the ultimate example of an Iron Born. Now give us please the disturbing relationship between Balons brothers, just in any way possible. I am thrilled you did the Dorne subplot as it is a great continuation of that storyline. Do the same with the Iron Born. At the very least give us Euron! Victarion would be bad ass, but I think he’s a lost cause by now. Damphair though, ridiculessly underrated though he is, I also think have a chance to make the cut. They’ve also really done religions well. Give us He Who Dwelves Beneath The Waves!!!!!!!

    57. Tibatonk,

      Oh yeah, Razdal mo Eraz is a great one too. They did well with distinguishing beween the 3 slaver cities, having them be part of the same mass but with tiny, subtle differences, and they did it with so little. I know more slaver characters will appear in season 5, but as it stands now we have only one familiar character from each city, with probably 4 epsiodes between them, and they are all written, cast and acted so well. Master Krasnyz in Astapor is rude, arrogant and bluntly unsympathetic. Razdal Mo Eraz is the same, but its all wrapped up in politeness, he’s smarter but generally made of the same stuff. Hizdahr Zo Loraq is smarter than both. Oh yes I believe his emotional outbreak in the throneroom was an act

      Surely that was Damphair baptising (or whatever they call it) Theon in season two?
