I know it'll make sense at some point but it doesn't make sense now and I don't get why Arya agreed to it.
I'm pretty sure the priestess is the same one Tyrion ran into earlier which is why he thought of her and sought her out. It ties in nicely. I agree the previous actress is better for the part.
I think Arya believes most if not all of her family is dead. When she was out on her own she witnessed so much horror, and this guy Jaq'en comes along and he can kill anyone with stealth, and change faces, and she wants Justice for a lot of people. I think that's why she went to Braavos to look for Jaq'en - she wanted that power as well. I don't think she knows her brothers are still alive, or Sansa. Once she finds out, will it change anything? Or will she be too far gone into the faceless world?
I like the actress that played the Priestess this time. I thought she played the role very well.

I do not like the idea that the what is changed or affected in the past is a big part of the reason or cause for a person going back in the first place. Like the only reason John Conner exists is because John himself sent Kyle back to save his mom. Without B there is no A, and it doesn't follow logically. I think there needs to be a virgin timeline, and in the case of the Terminator, it would mean that there is a John Conner regardless of whether or not Kyle Reese comes to the past or not. There needs to be an initial John Conner, not of Kyle Reese, to send Kyle Reese back.
For GoT, Hodor should be Hodor regardless of what happens in the present, because Willas being Hodor is a big part of why they are in that position in the present and why Bran can warg into him.
Well, many physicists say that all time exists at once. So if that's true, then there really is no past or future, only now. I find it hard sometimes to wrap my brain around this stuff. Thinking about time travel makes my head hurt.
And I agree with everything you said about it.
Also, with regard to time travel, I would imagine if you could actually go back in time and affect the future, either it would have to be fate and couldn't actually be affected because it already happened, or, you would just create a new and different timeline/reality/parallel universe. Otherwise there would be chaos, things would just be too complicated, because you (or whoever could time travel) would constantly be going back in time and everything would be constantly changing. Who knows? Maybe it already is and we just aren't aware of it. Star Trek (I think it was Enterprise) did an ongoing subplot about time travel and a collective from the future who go back into the past to make sure no one from any time period goes back in time and changes anything. In the end, they screwed themselves. I loved that ST series, but that subplot (along with the one about the Xindi) became a snoozefest after awhile.
