The backstage shenanigans
Now we get to the stuff oral histories are made of! If Arya decides to get out of the ninja-assassin business, she would make a solid entertainment journalist, blending effortlessly into the background and letting the talent reveal all sorts of juicy tidbits to her. At the very least, she would make for a decent podcast guest at some point in the future. She's got anecdotes now.
What exactly did Arya learn backstage? The guy who plays Joffrey has two warts on his junk, which we were shown in a nice bit of meta-nudity. Bianca wants more lines, too. And Lady Crane, the performer Arya has been assigned to kill, seems kind-hearted and chill. She's drinking rum backstage, flirting with the other performers, and she's played by the excellent Australian actress Essie Davis from The Babadook, so she'll likely stick around for a bit. We'll also probably get a few more moments with Izembaro, the cranky leader of the theater troupe, played by Richard E. Grant.
