If you find yourself wistful for a return to Westeros then turn that frown upside down. With ‘Game of Thrones’ returning next year for its final season, of the main story at least, fans are jonesing for every piece of information that they can get their hands on. Well, we’ve got the news for you to help tide you over. Recent casting news showed that a certain ‘Sarra’ is returning for at least one episode in the final season of ‘Thrones’. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, we don’t blame you. However, we can speculate on who she is and why you should pay attention to her.
The character Sarra was last played by actress Danielle Galligan. She appeared for a single episode, ‘The Rains of Castamere’, as a character named Sarra Frey. Sarray Fre is the not-so-lucky granddaughter of the vile Walder Frey. She was one of the Frey daughters that Robb Stark had the ‘option’ to marry in order to make amends for his failed alliance. Galligan’s own casting profile shows that she returns for the final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ and that has fans wondering as to her importance int he last half of the last season of the main storyline.
Astute fans of theshow, as well as those who read everything they can on the internet, will realize that the Frey’s have essentially been wiped off of the map thanks to a vengeful Arya Stark. If Sarra Frey is truly still alive, and not in a flashback, she would represent the head of one of the formerly most powerful families in all of Westeros. Could this mean that the Starks have another enemy at their backs? Or does Arya have a key alley in one of the most important regions of the entire map of Westeros? Time will tell.
