Warning: Spoilers ahead for Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 5.

We’re still in shock after the latest Game of Thrones episode, “The Bells.”  It saw The Mother of Dragons become the Mad Queen, Cersei meeting her end, and the total destruction of King’s Landing. But some fans believe we missed something major during all the carnage. Namely: Arya’s death.

If you’ll recall, the confrontation between Daenerys’s forces and the Golden Company opens with a shot of Harry Strickland riding on a magnificent white horse—a white horse that looks very similar to the one that Arya rides as she leaves the smoldering remains of King’s Landing. Reddit user ranchoddas_shamaldas suggests that Arya’s getaway steed is the exact same horse…even though we saw that horse fall down dead earlier in the battle.

Does This Photo Prove Arya Stark Really Is Going To Kill An Ice Dragon On Thrones?

Does This Photo Prove Arya Stark Really Is Going To Kill An Ice Dragon On Thrones? Going into Sunday’s landmark Game of Thrones episode, the secretly titled “Game of Thrones 70,” there are many questions. Most of them have to do with which beloved character will suffer a painful death at the hands of the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and his army during the imminent Battle of Winterfell. However, fan-favourite Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) has created a flurry of speculation around herself thanks to her brand-new weapon, fashioned by new boy toy Gendry (Joe Dempsie). From the jump, fans hoped the fancy new spear-like gadget was created with the goal of bringing down the Night King’s recently acquired stead, ice dragon Viserion.

So, what in the Seven Hells does this all mean? The simplest explanation is that there were just two different similar-looking white horses in the episode. But another theory? Arya is either dead or has become Death itself.

Not convinced? Allow these Twitter users to persuade you.

There’s also a symbolic argument to be made for Arya becoming Death at the end of the episode. In the Book of Revelation, Death is one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse—and it rides on a “pale horse.” In the A Song of Ice and Fire books, the “pale mare” refers to dysentery, which ravages Meereen. And according to Time, Quaithe, the shadowbinder from Asshai, warns Daenerys: “Soon comes the pale mare, and after her the others.” It’s clear that in the Game of Thrones universe, a white horse has ominous implications.

Could Arya be riding the “pale mare” from Quaithe’s prophecy? Could she have succumbed to the God of Death at last? We’ll have to watch the final episode of Game of Thrones on May 19th to find out.

Why This Moment Between Arya and the Hound HAD to Happen on Game of Thrones.
Warning! Spoilers for Game of Thrones follow! As Game of Thrones moves toward its epic conclusion, very few players remain. Yet, in the episode titled "The Bells," one of the few characters to rise from the ashes of Daenerys's attack on King's Landing is the usually unflappable Arya Stark. Though we end the episode with her escaping the city on horseback, she very well could have died with all the others if it weren't for the stern but meaningful warning given by her friend and traveling companion, Sandor "the Hound" Clegane.
