It's been nearly a week since we were captivated by the epic fight between the living and the dead. At the end of the fight, it was Arya Stark who slayed the Night King, destroying the entire WiteWalker army in the process.
What has captivated people more is how Arya was able to defeat the blue-eyed undead king. We saw in the final moments the Night King pick the pint sized fighter up by her throat. This caused Arya to lose hold of her catspaw blade. Somehow, Arya was able to grab the blade with her other hand and stab the Night King in the mid-section.
Her ability to catch the catspaw blade while being strangled by death has inspired fans to take the "Arya Challenge."
The Arya Challenge consists of people recording themselves dropping things with one hand, and catching them with the other hand, just like Arya Stark did.
As long as these kids aren't using sharp objects, eating things they shouldn't, and/or potentially harming themselves in any way, I'm cool with this.
One thing we can learn about Arya's iconic slaying of the Night King, it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. Arya's fight is larger than all giants put together. May all enemies in the north, south, east and west cower in fear. Arya is a threat.
Below is a young person doing the "Arya Challenge."
