I guess the people who saw the supposed flash of concern missed the huge grin on her face that she had as she walked away once she knew Jaqen couldn't see her anymore. She's looking forward to her first assignment.

I think they've clearly laid it out that she's going to do the deed with the poisoned oysters. The promos are famous for throwing people off. She has a momentary flash of concern or some other emotion in one of those quick shots and people are assuming that means she's going to end up doing something else. We'll see, but I predict she'll kill the target as planned and then see Trant at or around the same time and go after him without authorization from her boss.
I loved that devilish grin she gave - it was perfect. It lets us know she's all about this role she's been given and will perform her work without fail. She's smart and has the ability to kill without flinching (all of her needle kills thus far). She does have some issues to work out in how she kills (her emotional kill at the Inn with Sandor) and that's what her training here will do. She's shedding the last bits of her over-emotional attachments to revenge. She'll still get her revenge but she'll do so with calculated accuracy instead of emotion which causes mistakes. LOVE this theme, one of my favorites in the books!
