Reddit User Called Arya Stark Killing The Night King In Game of Thrones Back in 2017
Before we get into it, this person is pretty big on Game of Thrones lore, and has obviously read the books. That probably helped them be as accurate as they were.
In the archived post dated 10th August 2017, Pulsar explained: "In Season 7 Episode 4, a lot of emphasis was placed on the catspaw dagger that almost killed Bran.
"Why is this dagger so important? As I was wondering about the significance of this, a crazy idea came to mind. Bear with me for a moment:
"Is the dagger Lightbringer?"
Lightbringer is the sword wielded by the 'Prince Who Was Promised' or 'Azor Ahai' in case you're not immediately aware.
Pulsar continued: "Now, of course the prophesy speaks of a sword "made of living fire", but prophesies should never be taken literally.
"The hilt is made of dragon bone, which could account for the "fire" aspect. And the hilt also contains a ruby. Now, Melisandre's choker also has a ruby, so it seems that rubies are associated with the Lord of Light. Ergo, Lightbringer."

So far, so good.
Later on in the post, the real truth starts flowing.
"One question remains: why did Bran give the dagger to Arya? Of course, she could pass the dagger to Jon or Dany, but let's assume that she doesn't.
"Does this mean that Arya is Azor Ahai? Based on the prophesies, that seems unlikely. She doesn't fit any of the criteria directly. Then again, with her face-changing abilities she's quite adaptable."
In the last paragraph, Pulsar concluded: "In the show, this encounter was instead given to Melisandre. Obviously, we know that Arya is associated with death, being an assassin and all, but perhaps she is connected to death in a deeper way.
"Will the Night King be the last name on her list? Finally, it would be ironic that "no one" will save the world."
Bloody hell. That's some pretty good going. Any lottery predictions, Pulsar1977?
Game of Thrones' eighth and final season continues with episode four on Monday 6th May at 2am, then again at 9pm.
