Melisandre had predicted that Arya would kill the Night King way back in Game Of Thrones Season 3

Was Arya's big moment in episode 3 foretold by Melisandre?

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, The Long Night was a really long episode and was a gift that kept on giving. This episode confirmed what many fans had been saying since a long time; Arya Stark is the baddest character of them all. After successfully skewering the Night King and his frosty lieutenants and wights by extension, Arya seems to have closed down one long-lasting storyline of the series in one fell swoop, or rather, jab.

Was Arya's big moment in episode 3 foretold by Melisandre?

Shocked? The Red Priestess might just have prophesied this back in season three. Oh yeah, Melisandre came back by the way, for one last hurrah.  In season three when Melisandre runs into Arya, Gendry and the Brotherhood Without Banners, she tells Arya, “I see a darkness in you, and in that darkness, eyes staring back at me: brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes. Eyes you’ll shut forever. We will meet again.”

Arya’s shut a lot of eyes since then, and as the episode showed, the blue eyes that Melisandre was talking about belonged to the Night King.

Melisandre and Arya have a final encounter in the latest episode after Beric sacrifices himself to save Arya, which Melisandre would have us believe was Beric’s purpose all along. Melisandre drops a gentle reminder which is a throwback to Syrio Forel’s favourite quip; “What do we say to the god of death? Not today.” In this context, one can presume that the “god of death” is the Night King. Arya then sprints off to shish kebab him.

All of this seems to point to another prophecy; that of Azor Ahai or the Prince Who Was Promised. According to the prophecy, a saviour who is the hero Azor Ahai reincarnated will “lead the people against darkness” with the flaming sword Lightbringer. If we were to get literal, parts of the prophecy don’t add up to Arya being Azor Ahai, but past events would show that it’s the very nature of prophecies; they don’t pan out as precisely as they were foretold.

Melisandre initially thought Stannis Baratheon was the Prince That Was Promised (lol, what?) before moving on to Jon and Daenerys. But now, Arya seems like the most likely candidate.

What do you think?

No, obviously she didn’t predict this. Are you serious? She remained with Stannis almost until his very end, and believed he was the chosen one. Why would she, if she knew this? And Azor Ahai is long dead. The reborn-again version is The Prince that was Promised. Arya definitely isn’t. Jon is by far the most likely candidate. The whole saga is “of Ice and Fire”, just like Jon. And what was funny about she believing Stannis to be the Prince? She saw Stannis in her visions, and any sane person would come to the conclusion that she saw him… Read more »

George R. R. Martin promises to finish The Winds of Winter before writing for House of the Dragon

George R. R. Martin promises to finish The Winds of Winter before writing for House of the Dragon

Game of Thrones might be over, but the franchise is alive and kicking. We still have at least two books left to come, and HBO has just announced he first prequel to the series, named House of the Dragon. The key factor is that both the books, and this show, require George R. R. Martin to write, and the prequel announcement was concerning fans about the fate of The Winds of Winter. George however has cleared those doubts by revealing he’ll be finishing The Winds of Winter before staring with the prequel. Read on!

George took to his Not a Blog to discuss the prequel, knowing fully well fans were concerned that it might lead to a further delay in The Winds of Winter coming out. George wrote, giving an insight into the development of the prequel:

“Ryan Condal has already done a considerable amount of writing on House of the Dragon, but a lot of work remains ahead of us. There’s a writer’s room to be assembled, episodes to be broken down and scripted, a cast and crew to be assembled, budgets and production details to be worked out. As yet, we don’t even know where we will be shooting… though I expect we will revisit at least some of the countries David & Dan used for GAME OF THRONES (Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Croatia, Morocco, Malta, and Spain).”

He continued:

“I expect to be involved in all of this to some extent… and, who knows, if things work out, I may even be able to script a few episodes, as I did for the first four seasons of Game of Thrones.”

George made sure to give a little disclaimer, however:

“But… let me make this perfectly clear… I am not taking on any scripts until I have finished and delivered Winds of Winter. Winter is still coming, and Winds remains my priority, as much as I’d love to write episodes of House.”

He also discussed the sad fate of the other Game of Thrones prequel, The Long Night, which was cancelled, and noted that he didn’t think that the cancellation had anything to do with House of the Dragon, saying HBO had enough room for multiple Game of Thrones successor shows. He also expressed his sympathies towards Jane Goldman and others who worked on the show.

In any case, it looks like we might get The Winds of Winter in 2020, at least. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Emilia Clarke poses with Jason Momoa and Kit Harington in the best birthday snap ever

Game of Thrones stars have the best get together, but the latest one is definitely our new favourite. The mother of dragons, Emilia Clarke turned 33 recently, and had a birthday bash fitting for a Khaleesi. The best part of the birthday for us fans is a picture that she posted a picture that is by all means iconic, featuring both her onscreen love interests from Game of Thrones. Read on!

Emilia took to Instagram to share moments from what seems like the best birthday party ever, but without a doubt, the crown jewel of the birthday snaps is Emilia’s picture with Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Khal Drogo, and Kit Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, calling it a “Momoa sandwich” in the hashtags. Check it out:

Well, if only we had gotten this moment on Game of Thrones! Jason Momoa left an adorable comment on the picture, saying “Happy birthday love. So stoked I got to see you 😍”. The picture comes right after Emilia and Jason’s recent reunion on The Graham Norton Show.

Emilia also posted more pictures from her birthday party. Take a look:

The Khaleesi sure knows how to party. There’s a good chance more Game of Thrones stars were present, but we do not have any pictures at the moment.
