Spoiler:
I think Arya genuinely was feeling out Sansa, because the last time they met she was a prissy princess that sided with a monster to preserve her fairytale wedding dreams. After that first confrontation I think they were working together entirely.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Spoiler:
Sansa's reconciliation during the finale. While it may be down to something in the script-writing and editing of the episode, it still doesn't erase the fact that in the span of one episode Arya and Sansa went from possibly killing one another to uniting against the real wolf in their henhouse, Petyr Baelish.

It was a satisfying scene, to see the tables turned on Baelish when he was least expecting and ultimately watching him die for his treachery, but the fact the GoT seemingly glossed over the one crucial detail needed to believe that it could work — the sisters' reconciliation — is a bit irksome.

Arya and Sansa did a surprising about face when, after spending the penultimate episode of Season 7 quietly threatening each other of concerns of Sansa's loyalty to her family, the two were seemingly united with Bran in their surprise trial for Baelish. It was a fake-out for the audience as much as it was for Baelish. We saw Sansa order the guards to bring Arya into the Great Hall at Winterfell. The girls traded short remarks about why Arya was there, with her ultimately saying get on with it. Then Sansa turned to Baelish after telling him he was accused of treason and murder. In doing so, Sansa and Arya stood united in their intention to execute Baelish for his crimes.

I think the writer misses the point here and that is, after 7 seasons, that blood is thicker than water. I think that everything that went on between the sisters was for the benefit of littlefinger. They assumed that they were always being watched. That makes a lot more sense than a miracle reconciliation. Also, that creepy three eyed brother (WTF is that all about?) had the goods on littlefinger, as if more were needed.

While we can try and play these guessing games, the writing of that whole season was beyond poor.

You can see that they are vamping now that they passed the books.
