Game of Thrones Season 8: Details about the episode 3
Since the beginning of Game of Thrones Season, we all knew what an incredible assassin Arya has been in Game of Thrones. Throughout the series, she has amazed the audience with her intuitive behavior and smartness.
Let’s go back to the past episodes of season 1 where Arya was tutored by the famous water dancing instructor Syrio Forel. He stated one popular dialogue which has become a popular mantra in season 8.
In the third episode of Game of Thrones Season 8, Melisandre reminds her of the same mantra again during the Battle of Winterfell.
“What do we say to the god of Death, Arya?” asks Melisandre, “Not today,” replies Arya. This charges her up to kill the leader of the dead. She leaves the barricaded room to complete her job.
As she came out of the castle, she attacked the leader of the dead who was planning to kill Bran. However, the Night King sensed her and caught her by her neck before she could stab him with the dagger.
But he underestimated her skill, and this is where she tricks him. She stabs him with the Valyrian steel blade right into his stomach with her other free hand. Thus, the biggest villain of this series is destroyed.
This scene ended in a fraction of a second and fans still can’t sink it in. In the past, Arya was trained by the faceless man to become one of them.
There are some rumors that she took the face of one of the White Walker and snuck up from behind to kill the Night King. However, Melisandre died before the dawn, but the pack survived!
