While most fans would think that the story of House Frey would be over following the vengeance Arya wrought upon them at the end of Season 6/ the beginning of Season 7 for what they did to her own family at the Red Wedding, apparently there is just a little more story to come from the infamous House before ‘Game of Thrones’ is over.
According to fan-site ‘The Watchers on the Wall,’ an actress named Danielle Galligan has been cast as a character named Sarra, who fans of George R.R. Martin’s source books will recall is the name of Walder Frey’s granddaughter (her name is even dropped in Season 3 of the series as a potential bride for Robb Stark when Walder is trying to get the King of the North to marry into his family). Of course, there is a chance that this “Sarra” is not the Sarra who is Walder Frey’s granddaughter, but that would be odd for ‘Thrones’ to use the name and spelling of a character already mentioned on the show for a brand new character.
So if she is a Frey, does this mean more action/ emnity between the Freys and the Starks? Reigniting the feud? Arya left only the women of House Frey alive, but arguably they were just as abused and tormented as the Frey enemies, and it would be odd to see them take up arms against House Stark. More likely, they might see Arya as a hero who freed them, and perhaps the casting of Sarra hints that during the final season the remnants of House Frey will join forces with House Stark in the war against the White Walkers or Cersei. Only time will tell I suppose, but since the final season is already pretty short, it is intriguing to still see the series adding new characters and new potential plot points, when they clearly have so many plot points and character arcs to tie up already.
Do you have any ideas about who Sarra will turn out to be, or do you agree she is most likely the granddaughter of Walder Frey? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!
