There’s Yet Another Theory About That Game Of Thrones Arya Scene
Warning: This post contains spoilers from Season 6 Game of Thrones.
Most of us are in disagreement over what’s happened with Arya Stark in the latest episode of Game of Thrones.
Is she alive? Is she dead? Is it not even her?
Episode seven showed Arya being stabbed in the stomach by the Waif before diving off a bridge and into the water. As she walks through the streets of Braavos bleeding, it looks as though she fears she is being followed by the Waif – who could be literally anyone.
But is she really following her? Or is it someone else?
One Redditor with a very sharp eye may have found the truth in a set extra.
Sink your teeth into the latest fan theory: ‘Blue Guy’.
If you take a look at the scene’s wide shot, we see the man in blue again – he turns around and is walking (with what seems like purpose) in Arya’s direction.
And he appears in GoT twice more, Mashable reports.
So who is he? Given that he is wearing a stand-out blue, puffy getup while everyone else is wearing brown, it could be that were meant to notice him. Or he could be a Faceless man coming to finish Arya off.
Or, as fan theories are saying, he could be Olyvar – a blonde character who is a spy for Littlefinger.
If you follow that theory, it’s likely Littlefinger sent Olyvar to check on Arya, knowing somehow she was with the Faceless Men in Braavos.
Or he could just be nobody. But he does seem to be walking with speed and purpose, so there’s a good possibility he’s somebody.
Whatever the truth, Redditors are all in on this one, even spotting ‘Blue Guy’ in a previous episode with Arya nearby:
And also on a balcony in a trailer for the next episode:
If we’ve learned one thing with Game of Thrones, it’s that everything happens for a reason. So this blue guy must have some significance, otherwise we wouldn’t keep seeing him – right?
Whatever the theory – the Waif being a figment of Arya’s imagination, that she was wearing a pouch of pig’s blood, that it wasn’t even Arya who was stabbed – it’s clear that Arya is alive and shit is about to go down.
