Let’s collectively admit it, the last season for GOT was more like heartbreak and headache twisted into a ball together and then called well… television series and almost every Game Of Thrones fan was kind of disappointed.
So what do you when none of your previous theories about a show you lived come true.
You make new ones!
So now even though the show has ended, the theories um, haven’t.
Arya Stark was probably the key character at the end of Game of Thrones.
She may have left to explore the unknown, “what’s west of Westeros?”, but she certainly left her mark. But was she actually dead by the end?
An outlandish new Game of Thrones theory suggests Arya was dead for the entirety of the final season, and in fact was dead before two seasons. (Woah! We did not see that coming)
A Reddit ( off the source of all fan theories) user has argued that Arya was precisely killed during her showdown with The Waif way back in season six.
On hindsight, if you contemplate, plenty of fans felt her survival was utopian after that encounter which saw her stabbed a number of times. ( I mean of course the series is fictional but really?)
“She had a list of people to kill, that was presumed to later attend to as a scapegoat to the Many-Faced God,” wrote seedy Professor.
The theory goes on to debate on account that it was actually The Waif who assassinated the Night King and that this clarifies why Arya gave up on the persisting names an on her list, The Hound and Cersei.
In ‘The Bells’, The Hound persuaded Arya her life was more crucial than the vengeance mission and she took his guidance and left the burning King’s Landing.
In the books, however, she never about, and on this list. In the series, she got to the Red Keep and the Hound turned her away warning her to be safe because it was hazardous to hunt Cersei.
“It prompted me of how The Hound was on her list too, and I was simmering with rage seeing Arya give up on 2 kills when it was reckoned to be her life’s mission. This just reinforces my Arya is the Waif theory.”
We assume this one is a bit of an expanse and that it was, in fact, Arya sailing of, in fact, adventures rather than, well… Some agents of The Many-Faced God.
