Did Sophie Turner just (almost) confirm that Lady Stoneheart is coming to "Game of Thrones"?
For many Game of Thrones fans who have also read the Song of Ice and Fire books, there is a key character that has not made an appearance on the HBO series as of yet. That character is Lady Stoneheart, basically a zombie Catelyn Stark who seeks revenge on all those who have killed her family. Until now, we weren’t sure that we were ever going to meet her, given the different directions of the book and the TV series — that is, until the supposedly dead Benjen Stark made an appearance in last week’s episode. So, is Lady Stoneheart next up for a post-mortem appearance?
According to a new theory presented by the Huffington Post, yes!
In April, Maisie Williams (Arya) and Sophie Turner (Sansa) played a little game of “Two Truths and a Lie” with Yahoo, providing some major clues into what’s to come on the series.
Here are Maisie’s statements:
- “Arya goes to Westeros, back over the sea.”
- “Arya is in the trailer more times than people have realized, because they don’t realize it’s her.”
- “Arya doesn’t cross any more names off her list.”
And these are Sophie’s:
- “Ramsay dies.”
- “Lady Stoneheart returns.”
- “Arya checks three people off her list.”
Ah, two conflicting statements! Those girls are tricky, all right. According to GoT leaks floating around Reddit, Jon will take back the North from the Boltons (hurrah!) — but he will imprison Ramsay, not kill him. If that turns out to be true, Sophie’s first statement must be the lie.
And that leaves the other two as truths! That said, if it’s true that Arya checks three people off her list, then Maisie’s third statement must be false, which leaves the first two as truths, meaning Arya is taking on a new identity that we don’t recognize as her.
Game of Thrones fans are making the connection that Arya is going to use her Faceless Man skills to take revenge on those who have wronged her family—adopting the appearance of Lady Stoneheart.
How awesome would that be? We know that Arya has some deathly assassin skills, so we really hope she comes in and — finally — gets the bloody revenge we know Arya lives for. A girl is someone, after all.
