Game Of Thrones Theory Suggests Arya Will Kill The Night King
Here we go, guys. It's another day closer to episode three of the eighth and final series of Game of Thrones and now we're just three short days from the gigantic 82-minute battle to end all battles at Winterfell.
With that in mind, how about a nice fan theory about Arya and the Night King to pass the time?
So, everyone is currently in position for the huge battle between the living and the dead, Dany and Jon look set to mount their respective dragon steeds and fly into battle, Jaime Lannister and (Ser) Brienne of Tarth are on the ground, and Tyrion and Vars are down in the crypts.
Sansa and Arya were pictured in some promo shots on the Winterfell battlements. But does Arya have more of a role to play in the overall war than we might think?
This theory thinks that she does.
Remember the war council scene of episode two? Specifically, when Jon Snow said: "We can't beat them in a straight fight. The Night King made them all, they follow his command, if he falls, getting to him maybe be our best chance."
It's pretty much assumed afterwards that the Night King is after Bran, so they plan to use him as bait in the godswood. But, the one person who was at the war council who knows a thing or two about not engaging in a straight fight is Arya Stark.
After all, she trained with the faceless men and became no-one. She can remove people's faces and wear them as her own. So why not a white walker?
Oh, and she's also had Gendry make her a special weapon. A dragonglass tipped spear, of which the end seems to be detachable.
That, plus the Catspaw dagger, gifted to her by Bran - who can see the bloody future, people - see her pretty well armed for anything.
During an exchange with Gendry - no, not that one - she asked him: ""What do they look like, what do they smell like, how do they move, how hard are they to kill?"
Gendry replied: "They're like death."
She then mysteriously added: "I know death. He's got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one,"
Does this mean that Arya is going to harness the power of the Many Faced God to sneak up on the Night King?
She's armed enough, she's skilled enough, she's certainly deceptive enough.
The third episode of the final season of Game of Thrones will air on Sky Atlantic at 2am on Monday 29 April, then again at 9pm.
