Game Of Thrones Theory Leaves Fans Thinking Arya Is Already Dead

Game Of Thrones Theory Leaves Fans Thinking Arya Is Already Dead

WARNING: Y'KNOW THE DRILL NOW: SPOILERS GALORE ROUND HERE, GUYS.

What comes hand in hand with Game of Thrones? Fan theories... fan theories and more God damn fan theories, that's what.

And today is no different because there's a whole new concept: Arya Stark is dead. Well, maybe. Possibly. Potentially. Oh, we don't bloody well know anymore.

In the penultimate GoT episode we watched in exhaustion as Varys, Jaime and Cersei Lannister, The Hound, The Mountain, Qyburn and thousands of others bit the dust, got crushed, or were completely sautéed by Daenerys 'The Mad Queen' Targaryen and her remaining dragon, Drogon.

One person did manage to survive - Arya. Or did she? Because this theory suggests otherwise, that's for sure.

She was bloodied and battered by the end of the episode but she did manage to find herself a lovely white horse to take her out of the city. Ideal really, isn't it?

We all know that white horses have been perceived to be symbolic in Greek mythology - y'know with wings and shit.

So, fans have come up with a few references to this horse which mainly suggested that Arya may have passed on and it could have been her spirit riding out of the city, looking for vengeance.

The first explanation is that the horse is the same one that we saw Harry Strickland on just moments before Drogon destroyed the gates of the city. They're saying that this is the same horse but it's a ghost that has come to take Arya's spirit away.

Another theory (which is arguably a lot darker) is that the horse isn't there at all and it's a creation from Arya as she dies.

If you remember, a few days ago fans spotted the little white horse held by one of the innocent locals who were caught up in Dany and Cersei's large-scale bitch fight.

Two of the people she tried to help were crushed by a shit tonne of rubble, poor bastards.

Now, people have said that Arya could have imagined the horse to be real-life because she saw it in the little girl's hands.

The final one is that the white toy came to life (weirder things have happened, guys) and it's a symbol of Arya's final quest to punish Daenerys for murdering the child...

BRING ON THE FINALE.
