In the beginning of episode five, we saw that white horse die. The Golden Company was the first line of defense against the Unsullied. But they died real quick. And it seemed like the beautiful white steed did as well. But then suddenly, that same white horse appears in front of Arya to carry her away from the city of ashes.
It’s technically possible that the show just decided to hire one actor horse to do both roles but honestly that seems pretty unlikely. The horse has very distinct traits and is wearing that same harness. It feels intentional — like an Easter egg the creators and producers decided to drop. They obviously wanted fans to notice that it was the same horse. So what does this mean? Did the horse somehow survive the blast from Drogon? Even though nobody else did? That’s what we assumed at first. But we love (and also hate) this theory that perhaps Arya and the horse are both dead. We mean — it would make sense. She literally had buildings falling on her, and fire raining down from everywhere. As one fan pointed out, “Yeah, I’m pretty sure Arya is dead too. She got all burnt up and a building fell on her. They made a point of showing us the death of the horse and the countless deaths of Arya. And yet they both rise from the ashes. If this isn’t some lord of light shit, I’m gonna be pissed.”
The only thing wrong with this theory is that Arya appears in the trailer for the next episode…so…whoops. Unless she died and was brought back to life, it appears she did actually survive the wreckage. We shall see what we shall see!! Only one episode left of Game of Thrones. Prepare yourselves. The end is here.
In the *MEME* time, please enjoy these hysterical tweets about last week’s episode. We all need a good laugh before the pain that will be the series finale.
And just one interesting edit…what do you think? Does this make Dany more relatable? Mayyybbeee. But also. Probs not.
