Anyways that whole scene was very forced. Here a bunch of soldiers are giving a young lady traveler their entire life stories without any provocation.
How was this scene forced? Arya has had very little contact with enemy soldiers. Her training with the many faced god made her be very solitary. You could see that she was shocked to hear that these men were very normal people who were caught up in Cersei's quest for the throne. The only image she has of enemy soldiers is the beheading of her father. The only stories she hears is about how blood thirsty animals of an army have ripped through her family. When she was in hiding in that castle, they tortured any enemy soldier. So all she has seen is the disgusting foul side of war, but here she hears a beautiful song, given food and drink, and treated as a human. It may lead to her not harming the troops and only killing Cersei and Jamie.
