ok ok look
i still liked the nymeria reunion. i loved that she looks exactly like she was as a little pup, that was a nice touch. it makes sense for the show to represent that the right thing for nymeria is to live in the wild and be free and that arya understands that BUT
for a second there i forgot the show never really gave the direwolves their true meaning like in the books and so i was hopeful that nymeria didn’t go with arya yet because arya wasn’t ready, because even though she is going back to winterfell, to jon, she isn’t quite herself yet and so nymeria waits. i was hoping when arya truly feels like being home and being herself then nymeria would come for her and that would represent arya feeling like a stark again, feeling whole.
