. I can't see that happening (which, of course, means nothing). My own early notions with regard to Arya - even before she was on the path to becoming a Faceless Man/Woman - was that she'd be the death of Dany. Don't ask me why. Or, in a far worse scenario, Jon.
Now that would be disturbing.
The more i read and re-read the books the more I beleive that Arya is the "truest" Stark of all the Stark children. She's her father's daughter, and the Stark children will be reunited, as will their wolves, though not necessarily together at first. I think the leader of the wolves will be Nymeria. I don't think that GRRM chose the name Summer randomly. The ultimate battle will be between Fire and Ice- Dany, plus Stannis, plus the Starks vs the forces of the North (Others) OR Dany (Fire) vs. The Starks (Ice), which would be more in line with The War of the Roses.
