Probably not.


Maybe you should ask Rosie O'Donnell. She thinks that steel cannot be melted by fire.

Daenerys has Dragonstone and Casterly Rock. That's it. Dragonstone isn't all that far from King's Landing, but it is also one of the most heavily-populated areas of Westeros. It's just silly that she managed to bring an entire Dothraki horde within a couple of miles of King's Landing without anyone noticing. Her army must have the same magic cloaking device that Euron Greyjoy is using for his magic fleet.

What might this be foreshadowing? Don't know. The Mountain is still on her to do list, as is Cersei, so perhaps she has to fight her way past The Mountain to get to the Queen. In such an event, the duel last night serves to establish Arya as a credible opponent for The Mountain.
Not with that "toothpick" she calls a sword.

She calls it Needle, not Toothpick.

And Arya with Needle didn't do too bad against Brienne, although Arya did have to resort to using her newly acquired dagger.

But their commanders do not yet have transporters ala Star Trek.

That "toothpick" is Valyrian steel and can pierce armor just as easily as a larger sword. If a sword goes through the heart, the eye, or the carotid artery, it doesn't really matter how big the sword was.

.... and only the REAL Arya would know that the statue of her late father "looked nothing like him" when she was speaking with her sister in the tomb.

I think they're they're showing how much arya has progressed in her chosen "profession" since she first left kings landing as sansa and finger watches. She learned how to fight and survive from a variety of sources. she also made a point to mention that almost her entire kill list is already dead.

She trained with the faceless men, which are basically assassins. When Brianne asked where she learned how to do that, arya said "no one". A throwback to her teacher who told Arya many times he was "no one".

Needle is not Valerian steel. Jon Snow had Needle made by the weapon smith at Winterfell, as a parting gift from him to Arya. Gendry the blacksmith, when he first saw it, commented that Needle was castle-forged steel.

that's what didn't make sense to me. I thought the dothraki were going to capture all the food supplies. I guess it's more fun to burn them with dragon's fire.
