Hound had some of the best lines i've heard on TV in a long time this episode. that whole chicken thing in the tavern was classic. too bad there is such a revolving door of characters and storylines or he might get more credit for them.

she could've jumped in sooner and helped Hound out especially when he was on the ground or when that guy had the knife to his throat. she basically came in when it was over. they were all so focused on Hound she could've done the same thing earlier when it mattered more i felt.

She could've stabbed them in the back or in the balls when they were preoccupied with the seven foot tall hound. Instead of standing there watching.

yup. i didn't really feel she was badass at all. it was sort of like a weasel way of getting revenge tbh.

although i liked her smirk of satisfaction when they were riding off. i really love this crew.

Hound did most of the work but Arya potentially saved his life too.

no, but I dont get people saying she was badass/beasted on people.

That other fight in ep 10 s3 when she went up to the frey dudes with the bravosi coin and needed hound to come in and do all the dirty work-people are applying badass to her only due to association with Real badasses like Jaquen Hagar and Hound.

Hound dominated that scene with both talking and fighting, Arya just picked up the scraps honeybadger style.

At this point she still hates the Hound and wants away from him, she was waiting to see if the guy could kill Sandor so she could make a run for it. After they failed she came in to take her revenge.

Dialogue in this show is like ear porn. Just listening to some of the lines gives me a boner.

The Hound and Tywin are my favorite "asshole" characters.

Im starting to hate the scenes with sansa. They're prolonged and its the same bs over and over again with her "oh my family, oh" . Her scenes have become as redundant as skylar's staring into space taking up valuable air time.

If I wonna see 5 minutes of depression I'll watch Taylor Swift videos.

This. The same idiots complaining Arya wasn't badass would be complaining about lack of realism if she was able to go toe to toe with a grown man. Although I have to admit in the book the way she killed the guy was way more badass.

lol i think theres a lot of truth to what we said...

i like Arya. i'm just waiting for her to put all of that sword practice to good use and finally becoming what she's been building up to be since Ned Stark had her learning from that sword guy.

Thing is she hated those guys. I mean i'd buy that if she didn't have that huge grudge against that guy who killed her friend.

plus Hound treats are real well, and looks out for her. Yeah he keeps saying he is just taking her some place to get money for her but he does look out for her and she has to know that by now. even right before they entered Hound didn't want her going in like he was her dad, ,then it was too late when that guy saw them, and then Hound went into bad MF'er mode.
