Um, George R.R. Martin Might Have Spoiled Arya's Death on Game of Thrones Years Ago

Um, George R.R. Martin Might Have Spoiled Arya's Death on Game of Thrones Years Ago If Game of Thrones has taught us anything, it's that no character, no matter how powerful, is safe from death. With the highly anticipated Battle of Winterfell upon us, fans are fearing the worst for some of our favourite characters, including Arya Stark. While we hope our weapon-wielding girl survives the battle, one Reddit user points out that a quote from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, published in 1996, might foreshadow Arya's death.

However, it seems that lots of fans don’ t want to give Arya the credit she deserves and instead have crafted According to Reddit user u/Applesoapp, Jon Snow was a key player in helping Arya get to the “ Jon screamed at the undead dragon to distract it so Arya can run past and kill the Night King

'Game of Thrones' fans believe Jon Snow helped Arya kill the Night King, taking away all of her well-deserved credit , and it' s not cool. However, it seems that lots of fans don’ t want to give Arya the credit she deserves and instead have crafted theories about why her big moment wasn’ t earned

For the record, I’ve never been the biggest fan of Arya, so I can understand why diehard Game of Thrones fans were surprised during the latest episode, “The Long Night,” when Arya was the only one able to get close enough to the Night King to kill him. But you know what? Game recognizes game and I have to hand it to Arya because I legit cannot think of anyone better suited to off GoT‘s biggest (undead) villain. However, it seems that lots of fans don’t want to give Arya the credit she deserves and instead have crafted theories about why her big moment wasn’t earned, including a new Reddit theory that claims Jon Snow helped Arya kill the Night King.

Maisie Williams' boyfriend didn't like Arya's big moment "I immediately thought that everybody would hate it; that Arya doesn't deserve it." "The hardest thing is in any series is when you build up a villain that's so impossible to defeat and then you defeat them," she continued. "It has to be intelligently done because otherwise people are like, 'Well, [the villain] couldn't have been that bad when some 100-pound girl comes in and stabs him.' You gotta make it cool." © Provided by CBS Interactive Inc. Arya and the Night King, seconds before she delivers the fatal blow.

According to Reddit user u/Applesoapp, Jon Snow was a key player in helping Arya get to the godswood so she could kill the Night King and save Bran from meeting an untimely end. Jon apparently did this by squaring off with Viserion, now an ice dragon, distracting him from seeing Arya run by and get to the Night King.

“Jon screamed at the undead dragon to distract it so Arya can run past and kill the Night King,” Applesoapp writes. “The undead dragon was protecting the entrance to the Godswood. Watch it again, you can actually hear him scream ‘GOOOOO – GO – GO.’ 10 seconds later the scene you can see the hair of a White Walker flying up when Arya sprints past the group of White Walkers. Jon once again was ready to sacrifice himself to kill the Night King.”

Game of Thrones: Why Arya Isn't Planning on Returning Home to Winterfell

Game of Thrones: Why Arya Isn't Planning on Returning Home to Winterfell Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution. After the events of the Great War, Game of Thrones has left fans to wonder what will become of Arya Stark. During the course of eight seasons, we watched her transform from a lady of Winterfell to a world-weary warrior capable of assassinating Meryn Trant, the Waif, Walder Frey, Petyr Baelish, and the Night King - thanks to some encouragement from Melisandre about "brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes.

So, a couple of things. Applesoapp isn’t wrong that you can kinda hear Jon Snow saying something to the effect of “Go” (you can listen at the 1:30 mark in the video above) and he’s shouting it in Viserion’s general direction. That said, there is literally nothing to indicate that Arya is even in the vicinity as Jon yells this — he doesn’t even turn to look at her — and we also have no idea where Jon is on the Winterfell grounds so who knows if he was even close enough to the godswood that would mean Arya had to pass him on the way to get there.

It’s a truly wild theory that, in my humble opinion, only seeks to take away one of Arya’s biggest accomplishments to date and it completely ignores the fact that Arya has literally been training for this moment for seven seasons. She is one of the most ruthless killers in the Seven Kingdoms. She wears people’s faces, for godswood’s sake, so why in the everliving heck would she need her cousin to shout “Go” as a kind of signal? We literally watched her outwit a bunch of White Walkers in a totally silent library during that same episode, moving soundlessly around them and proving she knows how to sneak up on supernatural beings. Jon Snow is more of a hindrance than a help when it comes to Arya coming for the Night King’s neck.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Fan Video Imagines An Arya And The Hound Spin-Off Series

‘Game Of Thrones’ Fan Video Imagines An Arya And The Hound Spin-Off Series There are just two episodes left of “Game of Thrones,” and fans are already coming up with ideas for potential spin-off series, including a buddy adventure story featuring Arya Stark and the Hound. American comedian-actor Lance Krall created a spoof trailer for the appropriately titled “Arya and The Hound”, which opens on a scene from

This Reddit theory is just the latest in a week’s worth of reactionary vitriol from fans who were pissed that Arya got to kill one of GoT‘s big bads instead of a precious sweet boy who just wants to do what’s right, Jon Snow. Some fans called Arya a “Mary Sue,” a term used to highlight a character is without flaws or weaknesses and always manages to come out on top. It’s more a dig than a compliment and is often (if not always) aimed at female characters, reminding us that sexism is pervasive and I hate it.

But here’s the thing: Arya is definitely not a Mary Sue. She was the right woman for the job but also, did you not see her running through the halls of Winterfell at one point, clearly scared shitless and almost unable to fight? It’s Melisandre who reminds Arya of her destiny, which helps get her back into trained killer mode. Arya has flaws and weaknesses, it’s just she’s been trained to deal with them differently than other people. Also, one more time: she has been training for seven seasons. Jon has fought battles, sure, but ya boy was mostly running around and trying not to fall off a dragon during the Battle of Winterfell which is not exactly helpful to the cause.

Amidst all the controversy over Sunday’s series finale of “Game of Thrones”, the final scenes teased the future fates of the surviving characters, with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) exiled to Castle Black to command the Night’s Watch as Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) returned to Winterfell to become the Queen in the North. Perhaps most intriguingly of all, Arya (Maisie Williams) decided to take a ship and sail west, to "where the maps end" in order to find out what lies west of Westeros.
