Agreed, last we heard Bran is like, "I gotta talk to Jon" and then...NADA.
C'mon man, send a raven or something and tell him who his parents are!

Don't delay like Ned Stark, he never got the chance to tell Jon.

I mean, she's hot like a young Catlyn, but malleable and easy to make into one's pawn.

At least at this point, she is aware of the danger of others taking advantage of her, is skeptical of their motives, and she is trying to be wise. She's doing her best, but she's bound to have a lot of self-doubt.

Girl needs some therapy.
But that was back when Sansa was, what, like 11 or 12? She's clearly learned a lot from Cersei and Baelish, and if what some are saying about next week's episode is correct, we'll see that she's nobody's pawn in the Game of Thrones.

Sansa was weak, but why don't we consider Arya equally "weak" when she had multiple opportunities to end Tywin Lannister?

Because she single handily killed every single Frey that ever lived.

I would like to see Arya take on The Mountain.

I think she could possibly take him. She is quick like Oberyn Martell, and he could have beaten The Mountain if he didn't let his pride get the better of him.

Of course he knew how to use those long spears. Arya would have to get much closer, and that is very dangerous.

Yeah, but what is animating The Mountain?

As far as complaints about Luca, excuse me I meant Arya, go think for a minute. She's been in Faceless Man training for a couple years. Strategy as well as tactics and methods.

That would be a waste of energy and effort. The Mountain is a shell of his old self. Besides, that honor/task should belong to The Hound.

Didn't Luca Brasi wind up dead early on in the book/movie?

IMO, Gregor Clegane is the Luca Brasi of Westeros, a murderous brute that is totally dedicated to his master, in this case, either Qyburn or Cersei.

Arya Stark, on the other hand, seems to be channeling Hannibal Lector, but without the questionable dining habits.
