Well, yes, we all know that - thank you. My point is this doesn't make her culpable for the remainder of the plot since she is a child and therefore dependent on her father's judgement.
I never suggested she was culpable - my point was in response to the claim that merely bringing his daughters to court showed bad judgement by Ned, which it didn't. Not leaving sooner did. But thank you, we did all know that.
On the episode itself, I'm curious what Arya will do next. She's been shorn of all the initial characters from her solo plotting as begun in S2, and the Brotherhood are not likely to let her try to follow after Melisandre and Gendry, and she has clearly gone off them completely (although she was suspicious throughout, sensibly, pointing out that she was essentially a hostage, which Thoros admitted was true, although better not to think of it that way), so what are her options right now? Brave as she is, Thoros so easily disarming her in an earlier episode surely demonstrated to her that she cannot defend herself against the world (merely put up more of a fight), so going solo would be far too risky, but she doesn't like them either.
I'd like her to stay put, be handed over to Robb and then have him or his forces hunt down the Brotherhood. Yes, I know they are well intentioned, or so they say, but they are out to attack all Lords, so they are an obstable for the Riverlords too.
