It was intentional that we would begin the episode with the loss of one Stark sword and what Tywin thinks is the death of the Stark line and legacy and end it with finding another Stark sword and kind of implied rebirth of that Stark ability to act in the world through Arya. - D.B. Weiss [x]
In the first series of The Sopranos, Tony’s nephew Christopher(Michael Imperioli) shoots a bakery employee in the foot for making him wait. As he leaves, the wounded bread-seller yells, “You shoot my foot!” and Chrissy replies, “It happens”. It’s a nod to Imperioli’s character Spider getting shot in the foot by Pesci a decade earlier in Goodfellas.
