Game of Thrones has seen the Stark family beaten down again and again, but could the latest spoiler photos confirm the moment that we've all been waiting for? Read on with the knowledge that spoilers lie ahead...
Production on Game of Thrones Season 7 is well underway in Northern Ireland, and it seems as though some big things are going down in Winterfell. Jon Snow, Brienne and Ser Davos were recently seen in costume on set, and from the looks of it, they're about to be joined by two other very significant characters, Isaac Hempstead-Wright's Bran and Maisie Williams' Arya Stark. The last time we saw Arya, she had made her way back to the Seven Kingdoms from Braavos, made a meal out of Walder Frey's sons (pun intended), and crossed Walder Frey himself off her death list.
We've been hoping against hope that Arya would return to Winterfell to be reunited with her siblings and now, thanks to these pictures released by Twitter user gamofphoto it seems like that time has finally come. But could it be too good to be true? As Bella Ramsey was recently seen back in business as Lyanna Mormont, and the similarities between hers and Ayra's costume is far too obvious to be a coincidence. It could either mean that the young Stark is undertaking some Faceless Men work or, she and Lyanna have become best friends and have decided to wear the same clothes. The latter would be awesome.

Game of Thrones Season 7 could see Arya go in a number of different directions, but seeing her back in Winterfell would be the ultimate reward for her troubling time during Season 6. Bran however, after finding a way to flee the White Walkers, made it to the Wall with the help of his uncle Benjen Stark and Meera, and it now seems as though he's made it back to Winterfell. Although not pictured in costume, we're taking this as hard evidence that the Starks, after six seasons of being apart, are finally reuniting, rather than this is the make-up trailer where they hang out after shooting scenes for different plotlines. We just have one question though: Where the bloody hell is Sophie Turner?! She better not have run off with Petyr Baelish, if so, Arya has our permission to run after them and kill him. What do you think has happened to Sansa?
