    From the first time we met Arya, it seems she's struggled to make sense of things that were wrong, but that she could not change.

    It's interesting that you mention the butcher's boy because I think that's where her path began. Like two episodes ago, in the Hound's trial by battle, at one point she screamed out "Kill him!" That surprised me. I know that she hates the Hound, and I think I understand wishing death upon him for killing her friend. It's hard to speculate because I've never been there.

    But screaming "Kill him" in the heat of the fight taking place right in front of her seemed like more than just anger. To me, it felt like bloodlust.
