Monday is here and so is another episode of Game of Thrones, Season 8! After a dramatic end to the second episode of Game of Thrones, which aired today on Hotstar, the wait until next Monday for yet another nail-biting episode hopefully does not kill us. So, in order to help you tide over, we decided to give you this. Let's take a look back over the years and see how much has (one of our favourite characters on the show) Arya Stark evolved both physically (some of them have had pretty dramatic transformations!) and as a person. A tomboy to an assassin, Arya has had a dramatic journey, which had its tragic moments. Game of Thrones, episode 2 of season 8, Arya losing her virginity to Gendry also marks an important chapter in her journey. But while that's all the internet could talk about, Arya's life was more than just that. It's a inspirational journey from girlhood to womanhood that's worth looking back at.

Check Out The Pictures Here:
From Jon Snow giving Arya her sword, Needle, to her water dancing lessons with Syrio Forel to her father Lord Eddard’s death and Jaqen H’ghar’s gift of the Faceless Man coin, which allows her to sail to Braavos, it was quite a journey of Arya in Game of Thrones season 1.
This is when Tywin Lannister recognises Arya as a girl and takes her as his cupbearer. Also, in King's Landing (on the continent of Westeros), Arya meets Jaqen, who offers to take her to Braavos to join the Faceless Men assassin guild. Although she declines, he gives her an iron coin that will allow her to obtain passage to Braavos.
In season 3, Arya is captured by the Hound, who intends to take her to House Frey of the Twins (the Great House of the Riverlands) to ransom her to her brother Robb Stark. However, Hound and Arya arrive only to realise that the Freys have betrayed the Starks and slaughtered their forces. But Arya somehow escapes the massacre.

After escaping The Twins, Arya is taken to the Vale by The Hound as to ransom Arya to her aunt Lysa Arryn. This time they arrive to the Vale only to be turned away at the Bloody Gate as they are informed that Aunt Lysa has apparently committed suicide. (Lysa was in fact was pushed out the Moon Door by Petyr Baelish). As they return, Arya meets Brienne of Tarth, who fights the Hound to take Arya custody as she had sworn to Catelyn Stark to take Arya to safety. But Arya manages to hide from Brienne and encounters a Braavosi captain, who offers her passage to Braavos after she gives him the iron coin.
Arya, who is accepted into the House of Black and White by a man who wears Jaqen H'ghar's face in season 5, loses her sight in this season when Jaqen Arya has not dissociated from her identity.
In Season 6, when in the eighth episode, we all almost believe that Arya Stark is dead, the ninth episode is nothing but happiness as she kills Waif and it's not the other way round. She then removes Waif's face and adds it to the Hall of Faces. She then tells an impressed Jaqen that she is Arya Stark, and returns to Westeros.
