Here’s the drill, if you haven’t seen the most recent episode of Game of Thrones it’s best you exit because:
This most recent episode of Game of Thrones, “The Bells,” was nothing short of wild. The Battle of King’s Landing went down with Dany going full mad queen and torching the whole city.
While this mess was going down, Arya gave up on her mission to kill Cersei, and instead attempted to help people save themselves from the fiery onslaught.
After the chaos, fire, and destruction Arya found herself alone on a destroyed street with an unharmed white horse covered in blood.
And while the moment was very surreal, it actually bears resemblance to a particular passage of the Bible:
So, does this mean Arya symbolizes Death?!
Given Arya’s strong ties to Death — serving the god of Death with the Faceless Men, killing the Night King who himself was an embodiment of death — it seems to line up.
There was even a little foreshadowing happening in this episode — the little girl Arya tried to help was carrying a wooden horse toy.
Probably not a mistake that it was a white horse, either.
The horse was also a fun little callback to the one Arya got to keep back in Season 4, Episode 1, “Two Swords.”
Of course, some fans have theories that Bran warged into the horse that showed up post-massacre:
But, the general consensus is that it was very, well, unexpected:
What do you think, does the “Arya Stark is Death” theory make sense?
