I thought it was an interesting fact that they used the face of Septa Mordane in this scene. It is a throwback to the very first season and also the second time this episode where somebody appears who had a connection to both Arya and Sansa (the Hound being the first one). Interesting parallels are also the twisted relationship of Arya and Sansa towards Sandor/Mordane, for example: - Sansa snapping at Mordane when she was still looking forward to marry Joffrey and still shocked seeing her head mounted next her father - Arya not being the lady Mordane wanted her to become - Sansa being both intimidated and attracted to Sandor - and of course Arya 'hating' the Hound and denying him mercy
Do you think it is a foreshadowing that Arya and Sansa will meet each other (and maybe Sandor) again at the beginning of next season? And how do think her face finally came into the Hall of Faces?
There was an image circling around the internet a while ago of a "mask" or prop or whatever, that looked exactly like Catelyn's face with the same expression on it she had during the throat cutting. And its design was very similiar to the faces we saw in this episode. I searched for the image, but unfortunately I'm unable to find it, sorry.
Anyway, originally I thought that maybe this had something to do with Lady Stoneheart, but now I'm thinking, that it's probably one of the faces in the Hall of Faces. Either as an "Easter Egg" or, and that's nothing but wishful thinking on my part: Arya will recognize the face of her mother and this will lead to some sort of flashback or vision, where we see Nymeria pulling Cat's body out the River.
I won't let it happen. I won't let this world exist without me. ---
Basil Yes, that visual parallel came also to my mind. The closed eyes, pale skin..
I must say, I am still undecided if I like Lady Stoneheart or not. But it is the same with Catelyn. Show-wise I think it would have been great television and I cannot quite believe that they let this chance past, but it is safe to say, that ship has sailed.
