My mom on Tywin:
That was very smart of Tywin…figuring out that she was a girl. Like, no one else knew?
I’d like to take this moment to say that I’m also a girl and some of you still haven’t figured that out. So, Tywin has that on you. In addition to being a female named Meghan O’Keefe, I also have a personal blog and I write for Hello Giggles (“Dear Ryan Gosling" was mine), Huffington Post Comedy (“The Benedict Cumberbatch Situation" was also mine) and xojane.com (I’ve just started writing there so whatevs). I have to go bear some cups.
My mom on Gendry’s powers of observation:
I thought it was very astute that Gendry figured out Arya was a girl. He’s very astute. I’ve got my eye on him.
My mom on Hot Pie and company:
I was surprised that those other punks were going, too. Are they meant for the Wall, too? They seemed rather young. I guess they need men, but they’re little punks. They can’t do much. They don’t know, you know, what’s what.
My mom on Nymeria:
Oh! I thought of something you could share with everyone. Nymeria. What ever happened to her? That’s Arya’s wolf, right? See…I think she has to come back. I think she’s going to help Arya on her journey up north with Gentry and Bajoran. Are those their names? No, it’s Gendry and Yoren, or Bayoren. Yes. Bayoran. But you can tell them all that.
My mom on Yoren calling Arya a boy:
I still cannot believe Bajoran thinks Arya is a boy.
My mom on Ned seeing Arya:
My mom: At least he got to see his daughters before he was killed. You could tell that when he saw them he knew they were safe.
Me: Are they?
My mom: Well…
My mom on Arya’s first kill:
Arya. Oh man.At first, I didn’t know that she was going to find Needle. I thought she was calling Nicky. I didn’t know who the boy was. I thought he was Nicky, but I guess he wasn’t. She didn’t cower. She got the pointy end right. And she’s going to be a fierce lady. Very formidable.
My mom on Arya’s sleuthing skills:
Okay, so I’ve watched the episode three times now and I still have no idea where Arya’s getting all of this from. I heard something about “the wolf and the lion”, but I never heard anything about “a savage” or people wanting to murder Ned. Also, why didn’t she just double back the way she came? She didn’t need to go out through those tunnels. The only reason you’d do that is if they wanted to show more of the scenery…and give her that scene where she puts those guards in their place. But why would they do that? It makes no sense.

Anonymous said: Do you prefer Sansa or Arya?
My mom says:
Arya. Because I see a spirit in her that I wish I had. My personality is a lot more like Sansa’s. I like to read books about strong women because they are able to stand up for themselves and I didn’t have that confidence in myself growing up, so I enjoy seeing it in others. I see myself in the nurturing part with Sansa. She’s very feminine and nurturing. She wants to make things good and the way she rushed over to Joffrey when he was hurt. But I want all my girls to be like Arya. I want them to go out there and conquer the world.
My mom on Ned and his parenting style:
You had a scene where Ned tells Arra-Arya? They say Arra in the show. Anyways, whatever her name is. Ned tells Arya that King’s Landing is a very dangerous place. He’s letting her know it’s dangerous. Okay, what kind of father brings his daughters to a dangerous place? That’s not good parenting if you ask me.
