That part has been done for many many years. It is the test of do you really want to enter. By not answering the door, do you just leave or do you sit around for days waiting for someone to answer. It was showing "them" her dedication, patience etc. we as observers often take everything we know about a character and apply it to someone who's "just met" them. Since jaqen left she's done a lot of which he may know nothing.

I am wondering if we will see her doing her Jedi training, or if she will just pop out years later as a skilled assassin

Just as we saw with the Hound who taught her to hone her skills.

I'd run off to, even if I was immune to the fire. Not immune to teeth.

Agreed.

Arya has been too big of a character to put on ice for a long time.
I'm sure we will keep seeing her in whatever she is doing.

Yeah but then she did leave and rather foolishly threw away the medallion or coin or whatever. So I don't know what kind of test it was. Anyway, you would think getting to Bravos was enough of a test for a girl traveling alone.

But hey mysterious dude gotta be mysterious right. Still two of my favorite characters.

I kind of liked that she ditched the coin and went to try to bootstrap herself into a uniquely lethal young lady. Self made chaotic woman, she.

Of course they couldn't let someone that promising go her own way. She's been vetted by Jaqen and others, probably has a scholarship and gets to be in a sorority.

Eventually she did "give up" but from what we saw we have to assume it was days of waiting there. She got frustrated and she is young have to giver her a little leeway

I don't doubt Jaqen was going to let her join, but I am sure the initial test of her "want" is something that was needed. Her going off and fending for herself as she always has just added to things.

Personally I'm looking forward to see what this pair brings us in future episodes.

I'm having trouble seeing Tyrion and Dany hitting it off. They seem incompatible even if they are on the same "side". She's always so serious and he never is.

Anybody notice how many titles Dany has accrued? The last time they were read off it felt like a little subversive humor.

Also, I keep forgetting to mention - What happened to the comet? I liked when they were showing that, it seemed like such a bad omen.

I don't, what do they call it, yeng & yang. One balances the other. I do not see a romance but a partnership of sorts.

She doesn't seem to be the type to find any humor in his cynicism. We will see.

Any explanation as to why Arya's "death List" was so short? She couldn't possibly know about Tywin's death, and why no Illin Payne or the the guy from the Brothers w/o Banners, possibly more missing that I can't think of.

I think the problem with him is he is TOO serious...his humor masks this.
People don't take him seriously.
He knows this and shows them what they want to see.


Whenever push comes to shove or he is backed into a corner the real Tyroin comes out.
Remember him at the big battle when Stannis tried to take King's Landing...

Word travels fast and she probably did hear about Tywin. Illin Payne I believe has been written off. Illin Payne was written off the show (the actor is terminally ill). There are a few others missing as well, but we don't know yet why she left them off her current list.
