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 »

Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H'ghar) shows up in first teaser trailer for Stranger Things Season 4

Game of Thrones stars are all over the place these days, and we’re sure that the fans are going to love this new development that we have today. Tom Wlaschiha, who played one of the most mysterious characters from Game of Thrones, Jaqen H’ghar, has now appeared in the first teaser trailer for Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 4. Read on!

Before you proceed, SPOILER ALERT! Beware of spoilers if you aren’t caught up with Stranger Things.

Now, as we know, Stranger Things has a year return to Netflix, and we got an official confirmation from Netflix for the fourth season a few months ago. The first teaser trailer for Season 4 of Stranger Things just dropped, and it looks like Tom Wlaschiha has a part to play. Take a look:

Well, there’s two big reveals here. We hadn’t heard any casting rumours or reports about Tom Wlaschiha for Stranger Things Season 4, but he seems to be playing a badass looking Russian officer of some sorts. Secondly, Chief Hopper, played by David Harbour, who actually was shown to die at the end of the last season, is making an appearance, with lesser hair this time.

So exciting! There’s no release date for Stranger Things Season 4 yet, or details about Tom’s role, but we expect these bits to be revealed in the coming weeks as Netflix starts teasing the season more.

Watch a brooding Maisie Williams in latest images from The New Mutants

Maisie Williams a.k.a. Arya Stark from Game of Thrones has emerged as a very popular figure around the globe. In fact, post the show’s run, most of the star cast has moved on to do different and exciting stuff. Williams too has begun to create her own niche. She was recently seen singing “Let it Go” in the new Audi Super Bowl Commercial. Now we have some fresh news on Williams’ next assignment. Read on!

It is not a secret anymore that Maisie Williams will be seen playing a mutant in her next film, The New Mutants. The trailer was released a while ago and Williams impressed everyone with her presence. She is going to play the role of Rahne Sinclair a.k.a. Wolfsbane in the film and we now have some fresh looks out from the film.

Have a look:

Aren’t you impressed? We sure are!

As per Collider, In the comics, Rahne is a devout Catholic who must contend with her seemingly extraordinary mutation. Rahne is able to shape-shift and, true to her codename, frequently transforms into what we recognize as a werewolf. These new images hint at Rahne’s strict religious upbringing, giving us new insight into the character’s psyche.

Isn’t it great to see our beloved Arya Stark doing great in her upcoming projects? We sure hope she goes on to replicate her success of Thrones in whatever she chooses to do next.

The New Mutant is going to release on April 3, 2020, and we can’t keep calm!

How did you like Maisie’s look from the film? Let us know your views in the comments below!

Game of Thrones ended last year leaving fans divided. Some even complained that the entire last season was rushed. But, we can’t evade the fact that the series has now ended for good. Most of the cast members have now moved on. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) has joined the cast of Marvel’s The Eternals and Maisie Williams will be playing Wolfsbane in the upcoming The New Mutants film. Similar is the case of Ian McElhinney, who played Baristan Selmy in Game of Thrones.

Ian McElhinney will be appearing in the two-part finale of Season 12 of Doctor Who airing on BBC One. He reportedly will be encountering the TARDIS Fam in the two-parter, called ‘Ascension of the Cybermen’ and ‘The Timeless Children’. 

Ian revealed to Digital Spy:

“I very much enjoyed my time on Doctor Who…The team were a delight to work with and everyone was very supportive and welcoming. All in all, it was a blast.”

Though at this point of time, it isn’t clear which character will he be portraying he reportedly will be joined by Steve Toussaint, known for Deep Water, Mutant Chronicles and The Knock. Ian McElhinney’s character Barristan Selmy – a loyal trustee of Daenerys Targaryen was killed off in Season 5 of Game of Thrones, being ambushed by the Sons of the Harpy in the episode “Sons of the Harpy”.

Ian McElhinney apart from his badass portrayal of Barristan Selmy in Game of Thrones has also starred in The Fall and Krypton.
