Game Of Thrones fans believe the show revealed that Arya Stark would kill the Night King way back in season two.
The final series of the HBO franchise saw the young warrior slay the villain in the episode titled The Long Watch and now a new theory suggests that there were clues that this was always going to be her fate.
Unleashing their thoughts on Reddit, one user explained they believe that Arya (played by Maisie Williams) was recruited by the Faceless Men in a huge manipulation scheme beginning with Syrio Forel (Miltos Yerolemou).
Going right back to the beginning, fans might remember how Arya trained alongside the Faceless Men in Braavos on fighting and how to kill, inevitably preparing her to take on the Night King in the finale.
‘Let’s say that Arya was relentlessly recruited by the Faceless Men because they knew with their collective hive-minds that she’d be the one to eventually kill the Night King and end the long night,’ the user began.
They continue to explain that the group keep in touch with Arya as the show progresses and when she gets to the House of Black and White.
Discussing the theory in the comments, another fan wrote: ‘I don’t think that the Faceless ever intended for Arya to become one of them. I think that they had a contract for the Night King and Arya was just their weapon of choice.’
It turns out that Arya dropped a number of clues about her fate throughout Game Of Thrones, including that she’d eventually journey west of Westeros.
Reddit fans noticed that Arya signposted back in season six where she would end up, leaving us all stunned.
Game Of Thrones is available to stream on NOW TV.
