Forgive me if this has already been said about the Dragonstone episode, but i didn’t see anything about it in the tags so here we go:
A lot of people were wondering why there was a random group of Lannister banners (and Ed Sheeran) in the riverlands, and they’re afraid they aren’t as innocent as they seem. I think, however, the whole point of this scene is to show the other side of war and how Lannister armies are not all sinister, but maybe just some boys wanting to get away from Casterly Rock for a little while like they said. Arya probably doesn’t see them after this because i think the bigger picture is that they were going opposite ways and a lot of people are fearing Arya is going down a dark path killing everyone in her way, and we can see her considering at least taking advantage of the men when she glances over to the piled up swords left forgotten and she hesitates to take anything from them. Its very similar to what we see in the very next scene with the hound as we remember what he did to the man and the little girl who were nice enough to give them food and shelter. Arya sees their kindness and chooses not to take advantage of them despite knowing she could which is the opposite of what we saw in the hound in his darkest hour with the man and his daughter. We see she is not going down that path of vengeance and not knowing right vs. wrong. She’s choosing to go after the people who wronged her specifically, like the Freys, and not just anybody she could see as a threat or an asset.
We also see this character arc clearer in the hound in the next scene because we just witnessed it with Arya. He’s regretting taking advantage of those who showed him kindness and slowly seeing right from wrong again. He doesnt have it right, not yet, but he’s clearly on his way.
