The last episode of Game of Thrones sent fan theory creators into overdrive, with wild speculation as to what will happen to Arya Stark popping up all over the internet.
At the end of the episode Arya was stabbed by the Waif, but she managed to get away and she is now on the run. Is she doomed? Probably not, this is Arya Stark and I’m pretty sure she has a long future in the show. Someone will save her. But who?
Game of Thrones fan site Watchers on the Wall uploaded photos for tonight/tomorrow night’s episode, No One, with one photo in particular grabbing people’s attention. Here it is.
In the photo we see Waif with a dagger and the silhouette of what appears to be a man behind her. Eagle eyed fans have noticed that the silhouette has a likeness toArya’s water dancing teacher from season one, Syrio Forel
Syrio was last seen in season one. He faced off against Ser Meryn Trant to help protect Arya from being taken by the Lannister guards. Arya thinks thatSyrio is dead and that Meryn killed him. But we never saw it, so who knows?
It’s worth noting that the photo was leaked and didn’t come from HBO, meaning they could be photoshopped. Even if they are real, the silhouette isn’t certain to be Syrio, although we’re hoping it is.
No doubt we will get answers this week.
