Game of Thrones may have ended its fourth season in a singularly satisfying way, but fans are already feeling bereft of their weekly dose of intrigue and backstabbing.
Only the show's return or perhaps author George R.R. Martin releasing another chapter can truly help alleviate our Westerosi withdrawal symptoms. In an attempt to keep the spirit of the series alive until then, TVGuide.com offers up Game of Thrones' biggest unsolved mysteries as food for thought (lovingly prepared by Hot Pie) and discussion:
Arya has acquired a taste for killing.
In the latest episode of Game of Thrones (Sundays, 9/8c, HBO), the youngest Stark daughter realizes that just by uttering a name, she can condemn a person to death at the hands of Jaqen H'ghar, a mysterious man who claims he owes her three deaths to repay her for saving his and two others' lives. And although this proxy murder is shocking, it's not the first time Arya has taken a life. Last season, the pint-sized girl impaled a stable boy with her sword in self-defense. The act serves as a rite of passage and a gateway for kills to come.
