In Sunday's "Game of Thrones" fourth season premiere, young Arya crosses a name off her death wish list. SPOILERS AHEAD. Played by Maisie Williams, the orphaned Stark family member took out Polliver (Andy Kellegher), a man she witnessed torturing and murdering innocent people in the second season. She said, "There’s a turn in her and it’s kind of frightening. She hasn’t done much that’s really that effective. In this moment after she’s killed Polliver, she’s realized her own power as well. It was about being in the right pace at the right time. I think she’s also trying to show The Hound too — I got this list and I can do this if I want to. She’s definitely kind of changing and putting on a more brutal approach to things. It’s a lot more risky, as well, she’s not afraid of death." Entertainment Weekly.

Poor Sam Woolf. He received the lowest number of votes Thursday night and wound up being saved by the "American Idol" judges in a dramatic confetti shower that's usually reserved for the season's ultimate winner.
But while Sam is busy celebrating his second chance victory, it's time for a reality check: Ever since the Judges' Save was introduced in Season Eight, no one that's been saved has gone on to win the show.
