For a moment we are not dealing with angry little girl we know from the most of the books. Arya seems uncharacteristically serene here, she is not focused on the conflict below, she is not even silently watching the world like Jon, she is watching him.
Dark eyes, like his. The scabbard was soft grey leather, supple as sin.Jon & Arya - There is nothing left to hide (Game of Thrones)
Jon drew out the blade slowly, so she could see the deep blue sheen of the steel. The whole scene of their farewell and Arya getting Needle is very significant.
For Jon, Arya, and I believe that for the plot too. It is farewell which ends the chapter and ends Jon's life in Winterfell. Again it is pointed to us how important is Arya to Jon. Jon gives Arya Needle, and Arya tells him that she wishes he would go with them. She may be the only person to do so. I believe that two important phrases are used here 'stick them with the pointy end' and 'Don't tell Sansa'. The first one already reappeared in the books see a comment bellow and I think that the second will play its role too.
Interesting is also their short exchange about women shaving. Aside that it shows how open are Jon and Arya with each other including bad jokes and deeply personal and awkward topics, I believe it have other layers to it. Shaving aside of shaving head is connected to sexual maturity. Judging by Cersei's second ADwD chapter Westerosi women almost surely do not shave any part of their bodies but in RW in culture GRRM comes from most women do, so do Novrosi women and it would not surprise me if it was a case in Braavos especially among courtesans.
It is also interesting to compare this scene to Jaime giving Brienne the Oathkeeper. I did not find many similarities between the two aside of the motive of man bound by duty giving a woman the sword, but I think it would be worth the effort to compare how Arya thinks of Needle and Bienne of Oathkeeper.
This is where King Robert killed him and won the crown. He had never paid much attention to the names the children had picked, but looking at her now, he knew that Sansa had chosen well. She was the smallest of the litter, the prettiest, the most gentle and trusting. An description of Sansa's wolf. There were only two female direwolves in the litter.

It is very close to certain that Nymeria was the more dominant female. Lady was smaller than Nymeria which would rule her out almost surely. She would have to be very fierce and cunning to make up for the size, but both of those traits are also contradicted by the text. She went back to the window, Needle in hand, and looked down into the courtyard below. If only she could climb like Bran, she thought; she would go out the window and down the tower, run away from this horrible place, away from Sansa and Septa Mordane and Prince Joffrey, from all of them.
Steal some food from the kitchens, take Needle and her good boots and a warm cloak. She found herself wishing that Jon was here with her now. The first time Arya mentions her wish to reach Jon, but not the last time.
The Hand of the King is expected to rule the Seven Kingdoms, yet it seems I cannot even rule my own household. How is it that you come to own a sword, Arya?
Where did you get this? She would not betray Jon, not even to their father. There is absolutely no one in this world Arya is more loyal to than Jon, not even her own father whom she loves dearly. Which signals foreshadowing to me. Whether they can be called siblings, allies, friends, soulmates, star-crossed lovers differs from person to person. But no one can deny that their relationship is something unique.
All of the siblings remember each other - but Jon and Arya remember each other the most. Jon how Arya was the rebel, how she was the wild one. Is it possible that this foreshadowing, is the start of something strong - perhaps a forbidden relationship? Let me point them out. The Evidences Throughout the books, there are countless quotes indicating relationship between Jon Snow and Arya Stark. Bastards get the swords but not the arms. I did not make the rules, little sister.
He believes that one day Arya will 'give him the arms'. Jon grinned, reached over, and messed up her hair. They had always been close.
GRRM constantly emphasized how close they were, starting from the first. Let us note that, A Song of Ice and Fire hasn't been shy to incest.
Starting from the ultimate twincest couple Jamie and Cersei Lannister, is has also been said quite few times that House Targaryen married brothers to sisters to keep the bloodlines pure. While it is shown to be hated and wrong, it certainly isn't shown as something as disgusting as most houses in the Seven Kingdom makes it out to be.
He and Arya doesn't share the same mother. Jon watched them leave, and Arya watched Jon. His face had grown as still as the pool at the heart of the godswood. In exception to the angry and impatient Arya Stark we deal with usually, here Arya is uncharacteristically silent.
She's not watching the conflict below, neither is she watching anything outside. She's watching Jon - and Jon only.
Relationship between Jon Snow and Arya Stark [Theory] | Thrones Amino
Then again, from the books we find two mirroring quotes. And Arya…he missed her even more than Robb, skinny little thing that she was, all scraped knees and tangled hair and torn clothes, so fierce and willful. Arya never seemed to fit, no more than he had…yet she could always make Jon smile. He would give anything to be with her now, to muss up her hair once more and watch her make a face, to hear her finish a sentence with him.
