Arya Stark has been training with the Faceless Men to become one herself but now it seems that she is having a change of mind. In the last episode we saw that Arya was on the mission to kill Lady Crane by poisoning her rum. However, at the last moment she changed her mind and aborted the mission. It seems that Arya has decided to give up her training with the Faceless Men. All this was witnessed by the Waif, who immediately notified Jaqen about what happened and he gave the Waif the permission to kill Arya. Fans have been pissed after seeing the way the Waif behaves with Arya and many wonder if there is a reason why she hates Arya. But what if things are not like they seem to be.
Now there is a fan theory which suggests that Arya Stark and the Waif are the same person!
A Redditor named catNamedStupidity has come up with this theory that Arya might be suffering from a Fight Club type disorder in which she imagines the Waif. We have seen the Waif attacking Arya in the alleys and no one on bothers to help her. Also the Waif seems to mysteriously disappear after fighting with Arya. What if the water that she is drinking in the House of Black and White is causing her to imagine the Waif?
The theory says that Arya might be suffering from a bi polar dissociative identity disorder which has been caused by the water that she consumed and the Waif is just a representation of her inner self whom she needs to kill to finally become a Faceless Man.
Another Reddit user __JeRM went ahead and further added to the theory and it’s equally crazy!
I can see this happening in the show:
Arya and the Waif do battle, and after fighting valiantly, Arya is killed. We are all fucking stunned for a few moments (maybe even 30+ minutes if they decide to show other scenes elsewhere).
The Waif goes to Jaqen and announces that Arya Stark is dead. The waif removes her face to reveal that it was Arya all along, and Jaqen asks who a girl is.
A girl replies “No one.” – Credits.
Edit: Also, this will probably happen in the episode “No One” instead of the upcoming episode.
This just makes the theory even crazier! So what do you think about this theory?
Recent leaks from the set of House of The Dragon point at Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding celebrations?
Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Here’s one of the theories we have been pondering about looking at the most recent leaks, the crew of House of The Dragon is gearing up for a tourney being held for Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding celebrations.
There are plenty of factors that point towards the above conclusion. One, in the last few days, we have seen a few leaks showing a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon taking a walk together on a beach. Two, we recently had more pictures of Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen filming on set, one in Royal costume and the newest ones in Targaryen battle gear. Props for his dragon Caraxes were not spotted as well, and since he mostly rides Caraxes for a battle, it seems more than likely that he’s donning the armour for a tourney.
Also, there were pictures of a Targaryen camp being set up, close to the place where Daemon Targaryen was spotted in costume. There are not many soldiers in the view, so it doesn’t seem to be like a preparation for war.
However, one of the flaws to the theory is that in the book, the tourney was held at King’s Landing, while all the shots above have been taken close to a beach. Tell us about your theories in the comments below!
Does Melisandre’s ‘Green Eyes’ prophecy predict Arya killing Daenerys?
“You will shut many eyes forever – brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes.” So said Melisandre of Asshai when she met Arya Stark for the first time. This prophecy has played out since then, with both ‘brown eyes’ (Walder Frey) and ‘blue eyes’ (Night King) succumbing to Arya’s blade. Fans have long predicted the green eyes to signify Queen Cersei. But the equation changed with Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 ‘The Bells’ when another pair of green eyes became very important – Queen Daenerys Targaryen.
In an unfathomably shocking act of madness, Daenerys Targaryen torched thousands of innocent King’s Landing civilians in Game of Thrones’ penultimate episode, and as such established herself as the most devastating villain of the series ever.
Before Dany’s Mad Queen twist, Cersei was being regarded as the ‘Mad Queen’, mainly for blowing the Sept of Baelor with Wildfire in Season 6, but also for her general ruthlessness and murderous ways. The Lannister Lioness’ green eyes are quite famous and have been referenced multiple times in the books and the show.
Now, Cersei has been on Arya’s kill list since Season 2 and she even came to King’s Landing with the purpose of killing her. Melisandre’s prophecy in Season 3 also included green eyes, so many fans thought Arya will fulfil this target next. That expectation was strengthened when Arya left Winterfell on ‘unfinished business’ in episode 4.
But Sandor Clegane turned Arya back from that path and she went on to survive the burning of the city by just an inch. With Cersei now dead and Arya witnessing Daenerys’ carnage first-hand, it is all too possible that the significance of ‘green eyes’ has changed for Arya.
Interestingly, Daenerys’ eyes were not even supposed to be green. In the books, they are purple, and in keeping with the unusual physiological traits of Valyrian Dragonlords from whom Daenerys is descended. But Emilia Clarke, the actor who plays Daenerys in the show, has green eyes. Although she wore purple contacts in the unaired pilot of Game of Thrones, that idea was discarded in the main show and Clarke stuck to her natural eye colour.
If the show follows the books in terms of major plot points (and Daenerys’ death should be a major plot point) then the Arya-killing-Daenerys-because-of-prophecy scenario is unlikely, because book Daenerys does not even have green eyes. But the show has introduced many plot twists – so this is not totally implausible either.
What do you think of this theory? Will Arya fulfil the ‘green eyes’ prophecy by killing Daenerys or some completely different end awaits the ‘Queen of Ashes’? Tell us in the comments!
Here’s what Arya Stark and her white horse could mean for Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5 “The Bells” had a lot going for it. So many happenings and so many deaths in just one episode, but it ended with a scene that baffled quite a lot of users. We saw Arya make her way through the destruction in King’s Landing, and find a white horse, whom she rides out of the city. Here’s what it could mean for the show, and the series finale.
White Horses have been used as a symbol in storytelling for a long time now, for both good and bad things. However, fans are speculating that this particular bit might be pointing towards a Bible verse that talks about the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The passage says:
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.”
Arya and death have danced for a long time in the show, and it seems like the show is hinting that Arya will have a final battle with death in the series finale. We saw who brought death in “The Bells” — Daenerys Targaryen, and it feels like could be the second bit of foreshadowing that Arya could be responsible for Daenerys’ death, after the ‘green eyes’ clue.
It also connects to both Arya and Daenerys, as Ned Stark used to ride a white horse, and so did Daenerys, at the beginning of the show. Maybe it’s things coming together for Arya and Daenerys, both of whose fathers were murdered in King’s Landing.
Either that, our we will get our expectations subverted again. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
