The sixth and final episode of Game of Thrones saw an emotional ending as the Stark siblings bid farewell to each other.
With Bran Stark (played by Isaac Hempstead Wright) crowned King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa (Sophie Turner) Queen of the North and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) setting sail West of Westeros, it seems the HBO hit saw a somewhat just outcome.
Jon Snow (Kit Harington) meanwhile was exiled to the Night’s Watch to keep the peace after killing Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) giving him a lonely fate.
But it seems Arya may have had the most heartbreaking ending as fans believe they’ve uncovered a clue which hints she’s be not remain a young girl forever.
Reddit user lmMrMeeseeksLookAtMe wrote: “‘When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.’ – Eddard Stark, AGOT.
“As of the end of ADWD, and into the TWOW previews, we have heard several mentions of a massive wolf pack, headed by Arya’s direwolf Nymeria.
“I found it interesting that despite Arya being arguably the loneliest Stark (the lone wolf), Nymeria is the leader of this immense pack.”
The fan went on to reveal they believe this will perish but take on the form of her wolf Nymeria.
“Arya will die, in her human form, but she will live on in Nymeria, leading the pack,” they wrote.
However others weren’t too happy with the theory with some claiming Jon is the “lone wolf”.
“Is Jon the lone wolf? He did volunteer to spend the rest of his life at at The Wall,” the replied.
Another added: “I think she spent her entire time forming new packs.
“Yes, she was trying to get back to her family, but she’s never really been ‘a lone wolf’.
“She’s always had a people with her to keep her safe, or to keep her company, or to train her.”
The theory comes after director Miguel Sapochnik spoke out about one of the final scenes that saw Arya kill the Night King (Vladimir Furdik), revealing it could have played out very differently.
Fans know Arya killed the leader of the dead by plowing her Catspaw dagger into his stomach shattering him into tiny pieces.
But it seems there could have been a much more complicate plot planned.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the director said: “At one point there was an elaborate plan to have her fight her way into the Weirwood forest, but as we progressed we realised she’d already done that earlier in the episode, so it felt like a repeat.”
“In the end we felt it didn’t matter how she got there – what mattered was setting up that moment when the Night King catches her mid-leap and we think she’s done for, then she pulls her knife switch and takes him out.”
Miguel added: “I loved Maisie’s performance post the takedown as well, sharing a moment with her brother, Bran. That weary smile. ‘Not today.’”
