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.

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.

As we head into the final episode , many fans think that Arya is actually the Prince That Was The theory basically hinges on that white horse that Arya rides off on at the end of the last episode . "And I know that yes, Arya is in the next episode ’ s trailer. But like.. This is Game of Thrones we’re talking

One new fan theory that has emerged relates to Arya Stark and argues that the character may have actually died earlier in the show. During the show’ s fifth and sixth seasons, Arya , played by Maisie Williams, learns to fight alongside the Faceless Men in Braavos, taking the faces of those she’ s killed

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.

Maisie Williams says her 'Game of Thrones' fame affected her mental health.
Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in "Game of Thrones," says fame has had a negative affect on her mental health and self-esteem. In an interview on the Happy Place podcast, Williams opened up about how it was a challenge navigating life as a teenager while also managing her fame from "Game of Thrones." Williams, who was 13 years old when she was cast as Arya Stark, said there was a period of time where she was sad after becoming overwhelmed by the criticism on social media. "It gets to a point where you're almost craving something negative, so you can just sit in a hole of sadness," Williams said.
