The Waif chases down Arya through Braavos. Arya, having experience in fighting without sight, is victorious. So I thought, that's how I'll play the guy. "[14][15] Construction of a portion of the castle began in September, with tents and wooden additions being added shortly after. [19], "No One" was received mostly positively by critics, who listed the conclusion of Arya's story with the Faceless Men, the reintroduction of the Brotherhood Without Banners, and Jaime's scheme to retake Riverrun as high points of the episode, but some critics described sequences in the episode as being anticlimactic. [1], In the "Inside the Episode" featurette published by HBO following the airing of the episode, David Benioff spoke about the revelation in King's Landing, and Tommen's decision to abolish "trial by combat," stating "This moment is a grievous blow for Cersei because she's been counting on trial by combat really since the end of season five. She tells Arya that she has taken revenge on her rival Bianca and offers to have Arya join her troupe, but Arya refuses, intending to discover what lies west of Westeros. So it was really about that moment of choice and the dignity and acceptance between these two great warriors, rather than the actual detail of his actual death. Williams also stated that she gave input on how the scene should take place, stating "I didn't want the chase stunt to be unnecessary or superhuman. And she would encourage me. As the Waif closes in, Arya brandishes Needle, extinguishing the candle lighting the room; having trained while blinded for several weeks, Arya has the upper hand. She’s definitely made her presence known in GoT’s seventh season, with her battles with Arya being dubbed the ‘Braavosi Fight Club’. At first the Waif constantly outmaneuvers Arya, repeatedly knocking her to the ground, but eventually Arya manages to respond and defends herself with her own fighting stick to the point where the Waif becomes visibly distressed. [21] The site's consensus reads ""No One" sees some fan favorites back in action and moves the final few pieces into place for a momentous – and long-awaited – battle. She appears to be a pale little girl with a gaunt bony face and dark eyes that look as big as saucers. Though Arya replies that she is "no one", the Waif is still unconvinced and beats her a second time. [10] Mylod stated in an interview that the most physically challenging scene to direct was the chase scene, while the scene he was most scared to shoot was the conversation between Jaime and Edmure, stating that he felt the writing was "so freaking good that I was scared about fucking it up. Beric and Thoros try to recruit Sandor into the Brotherhood, explaining that they intend to head north to fight the White Walkers and need his strength. She'd just duck under here and just get out." "[3], In the conclusion of the "Inside the Episode" segment Weiss spoke about Arya's story, saying "Arya is in danger, she's got an open wound in her stomach, and the one person who has protected her to this point unfortunately gets murdered. Now I don't really know what that has to do with it. And she’s taken a big chunk of the spotlight in season seven, so naturally, Faye Marsay accompanied her fellow GoT cast members to Comic-Con – and fans of the show were pretty surprised when they saw her. "[20] He gave the episode an 8.2 out of 10. It's very touching and sad, and I think that's what it's about. Jaime gives Brienne until nightfall, and refuses Brienne's offer to return Oathkeeper, stating it belongs to her alone now. The woman who became the Waif discovered this plot and sought the help of the Faceless Men. What a difference. Weiss continued about the final part of the sequence, "Arya's telling Jaqen by putting the face on the wall that 'this account is settled, and we're good here, and now I'm going to walk away,' and I think she knows what the answer's going to be. The waif was the only child of an ancient noble house, her father's heir. When Arya lands a blow of her own, the Waif seemingly becomes overwhelmed with anger and makes a rash move which Arya intercepts, while Jaqen observes. He also noted about his portrayal of the character, "Beric was a noble character, a leader of men.

Due to Arya's blinded state, the Waif gains the upper hand over Arya and leaves her beaten and bruised. I had this image in my head that I wanted lots of oranges rolling down, not quite sure where that comes from, but it looked pretty. It was written by series co-creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, and directed by Mark Mylod. Cersei refuses to go with them and the Faith Militant back off after one attacks Gregor Clegane and is promptly killed. And his relationship is obviously very complicated, and fraught, and has undercurrents that he's uncomfortable with feeling." Following the appearance, Love stated that he had received an email from Benioff offering him a part in the show, saying "I broached the subject by sending them an email back saying 'Listen I don't know what your plans are for me but it would really mean a lot to me if I could have one of those trademark Game of Thrones gruesome death scenes, and they wrote back saying 'Actually Steve, that was exactly what we had in mind for you. That added to the conflict he felt of what was the right thing to do: whether to send men to Sansa or not." Arya flees through the streets of Braavos, reopening her wound in the process, to her hideout with the Waif in pursuit.

Seeing the blood arise from the water, the Waif leaves the scene, believing she is victorious in her task. The poison, however, stunted her growth, causing her small and boney appearance—she only looks like a young child, but is actually 36 years old. "[3] Gwendoline Christie also spoke about filming with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who portrays Jaime Lannister, again, saying "I was excited, It was really fun to be with Nikolaj again, and I thought the way of which their reunion happens is not really expected.

"[25] However, Egner also praised the episode's continuation with the King's Landing story, as well as the follow up with Sandor Clegane and the Brotherhood Without Banners. She defeats her foe easily; at a certain point, she lays down her weapon. And I felt awful because the job of the stunt guys is to make everything look as crazy and cool as possible. But Faye has now quit Facebook after receiving some online hate. The Blackfish helps Brienne and Podrick escape, but remains to fight the Lannisters.
