Game of Thrones season 8: What weapon did Arya ask Gendry for in episode 1? | The Independent

One of the biggest questions coming out of the of Game of Thrones involves the weapon Arya requested from blacksmith Gendry.Having not seen each other since season three, the pair finally reunited in Winterfell , with Baratheon blacksmith Gendry (Joe Dempsie) hard at work forging dragonglass into weapons against the White Walkers.Arya (Maisie Williams) wasn’t there just to catch up with her old friend, though. She handed him a slip of paper that had her own design on it. It features the word “Dragonglass” with what appears to be a spear tip.From extras.“What do you need something like this for?” Gendry asks her – and it’s a good question.The best evidence comes from Vanity Fair ‘s Still Watching podcast, which featured an interview Thrones weapons designer Tommy Dunne. He revealed he’d designed a “showstopper” for the final season that has been “reverse-engineered” so that it can be “made into two different items.”Looking at Arya’s sketch, it seems like this is the weapon he’s referring to. Current status: Alive, sitting on the Iron Throne, probably drinking wine and plotting revenge against the Starks as her newly bought Golden Army comes to Westeros. Current status: Dead. Tywin's own son, Tyrion, shot him with a crossbow while he was sat on the toilet. Current status: Undead. The Mountain was poisoned by Oberyn Martell, only to be brought back from the dead by Maester Qyburn. Now, he stands by Cersei's side. Current status: Dead. After training as a Faceless person, Arya tracked down Meryn in Braavos. Arya lured him into a trap, stabbed him in the eyes and slit his throat. Current status: Alive (although very, very old). Jon Snow banned her from stepping foot in Westeros. However, Melisandre has already prophesied her own death will take place in Westeros. Perhaps at the hands of Arya. Current status: Alive and currently at The Wall, hiding from the Night King's zombie dragon. Current status: Dead. Thoros was one of Jon Snow's troupe who headed north of The Wall to retrieve a Walker. The idea was to present the creature to Cersei. On that journey, Thoros was attacked by an undead bear and eventually froze to death. Current status: Dead. When Arya got back to Westeros from Braavos, Walder was the first person she went after. Using her new Faceless skills, she infiltrated the Frey household and slit Walder's throat. She then stole his face and poisoned the rest of the Frey family. Current status: Alive. Ilyn has not appeared on the show since season two. One of the reasons for this could be because Johnson was diagnosed with cancer in 2013. The actor/musician has since made a recovery, and could be back for season eight. Current status: Dead. Rorge attempted to ambush The Hound and Arya on their journey to Eyrie. What he did not count on was being bested by The Hound. Arya then quickly learns Rorge's name, adds him to the list, and kills him. Current status: Dead. Joffrey was poisoned at the Purple Wedding (when the King was to be married to Margaery Tyrell). Although Tyrion was initially blamed, Olenna Tyrell was the actual perpetrator. Current status: Dead. While travelling with The Hound, Arya bumped into Polliver (still with Needle) at a tavern. Polliver then offered to exchange a chicken for sex with Arya. Funnily enough, that did not go down well, and The Hound soon did away with Polliver's men, leaving the thief for Arya. Current status: Alive. The Hound was on the verge of death when Brother Ray came and saved him. He then joined Jon Snow and is currently on his way to Winterfell – where Arya awaits.
