i’m rewatching the show again and how on earth does arya have such a good connection with everyone she comes across? arya and jon, arya and syrio, arya and gendry, arya and tywin, arya and the hound, arya and jaqen, and most recently arya and the lannister soldiers. her family is cursed with misfortune but besides practically witnessing the death of everyone she loves, all she really runs into is luck and people who miraculously see something in her and want to help her out (the most interesting dynamics are the ones she has with the perceived villains in the show though).
As a result of the difference in age, I think one of the roles Gendry played in Arya’s story was as him being an older guy who sort of awakens certain feelings in Arya for the first time as she’s becoming a young woman.
[gendry goes to the starks house. calls the door. waits for arya to show up. he's really nervous and anxious. suddenly someone opens the door.]
arya, i know this will sound weird and you probably will never talk to me again after this but i like you, i like you a lot and...oh my god...you're so perfect, so incredible and i just want to kiss you really hard. so...i know this is unexpected, but do you want to be my girlfriend?
* up his head and finds jon in the door with his mouth open, staring at him shocked*
<b>Oh, please, give us finally Gendry in the 4th episode! Please, please, please!!! I would be more than happy even if there will be only one scene! Even something like this would be enough:</b> <p/><b></b> Jon and Davos are standing next to the huge pile of dragon glass<p/><b>Jon:</b> so now we only need a good gunsmith...<p/><b>Davos:</b> actually, I know one...<p/><b>Jon:</b> *looking at Davos* a good one?<p/><b>Davos:</b> *looking back at Jon* the best one *smiling his DADvos smile*<p/><b></b> The camera shows a gunsmith at work, starting with hands, then moved higher and finally stops at the sweaty and grimy face. It Is Gendry.<p/><b></b> (That's all I waaaaant! *yeah, well, maybe, a little bit more heh, but I would be happy even then* 😊)<p/></p>
