How Arya Could End Up on the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones

*Spoilers ahead.

After the latest episode of Game of Thrones, "The Long Night," showed Arya Stark successfully demolishing the Night King in the most impressive display of dagger-catching we've ever seen, we can't help but root for her to win it all. A new fan theory, posted by Redditor DreadChord, lays out the path for Arya to make it all the way to the Iron Throne. While it might be a bit of a stretch, and sort of depressing, it's still got some plausibility. According to the theory:

"Daenerys' vision from the house of the undying has a scene with no one sitting on the throne, while the throne room is covered in snow. I suggest, Jon dies and Arya truly ends up taking to the no-one persona, adopting Jon's face and behaviour and masquerading as Jon, king on the iron throne. She kills Cersei as Jon, fulfilling simultaneously both the Valonqar prophecy and the green eyes prophecy, Valonqar loosely since Jon seems to think of Arya as [his] little sister."

"No one" is the identity that the Faceless Men take on, and when Arya completed her training in season 6, Jaqen H'ghar told her, "Finally, a girl is no one." While Arya replies to this by boldly stating, "A girl is Arya Stark of Winterfell, and I am going home," prompting her journey back to her family, the Redditor still believes there's a chance she could take on the identity once again.

The "Valonqar" prophecy mentioned here refers to a passage in A Feast for Crows, the fourth book in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series—not the TV series. As a child, Cersei Lannister is told by Maggy the Frog that she would be killed at the hands of a "Valonqar," a High Valyrian word meaning "little brother." While there are plenty of theories interpreting this to mean Tyrion or Jaime Lannister, or even somehow Cersei's unborn child as being the one to kill her, this fan theory is one of the more out-there translations of the prophecy we've heard so far. But Game of Thrones is known to give us some unbelievable twists.

While we don't think we're ready to see Jon Snow die, there's no denying that the Seven Kingdoms would be in good hands under Arya's rule.

Kodak’s New Cameras Don't Just Take Photos—They Also Print Them

Snapping a photo and immediately sharing it on social media is definitely convenient, but there’s still something so satisfying about having the printed photo—like you’re actually holding the memory in your hands. Kodak’s new STEP cameras now offer the best of both worlds.

As its name implies, the Kodak STEP Instant Print Digital Camera, available for $70 on Amazon, lets you take a picture and print it out on that very same device. Not only do you get to skip the irksome process of uploading photos to your computer and printing them on your bulky, non-portable printer (or worse yet, having to wait for your local pharmacy to print them for you), but you never need to bother with ink cartridges or toner, either. The Kodak STEP comes with special 2-inch-by-3-inch printing paper inlaid with color crystals that bring your image to life. There’s also an adhesive layer on the back, so you can easily stick your photos to laptop covers, scrapbooks, or whatever else could use a little adornment.

There's a 10-second self-timer, so you don't have to ask strangers to take your group photos.Kodak

For those of you who want to give your photos some added flair, you might like the Kodak STEP Touch, available for $130 from Amazon. It’s similar to the regular Kodak STEP, but the LCD touch screen allows you to edit your photos before you print them; you can also shoot short videos and even share your content straight to social media.

If you want to print photos from your smartphone gallery, there's the Kodak STEP Instant Mobile Photo Printer. This portable $80 printer connects to any iOS or Android device with Bluetooth capabilities and can print whatever photos you send to it.

The Kodak STEP Instant Mobile Photo Printer connects to an app that allows you to add filters and other effects to your photos. Kodak

All three Kodak STEP devices come with some of that magical printer paper, but you can order additional refills, too—a 20-sheet set costs $8 on Amazon.

The Office Will Debut Unreleased Footage When It Premieres on Peacock

Get ready for never-before-seen footage of The Office.
Get ready for never-before-seen footage of The Office.

Even though you would expect The Office to already be on Peacock, NBC’s new streaming service, the comedy remains on Netflix … for now. But once it leaves Netflix at the end of the year, we’ll all be getting a major treat when the episodes re-debut on NBC's new platform complete with unreleased footage.

In case you’re unaware, The Office chronicles the lives of a group of unique paper company workers. The series ran for nine seasons from 2005 to 2013, and featured an ensemble cast helmed by Steve Carell and included the likes of Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Creed Bratton, Jenna Fischer, B. J. Novak, Ed Helms, Mindy Kaling, Craig Robinson, and Ellie Kemper. Many of the actors on The Office have gone on to have impressive careers in the film and TV industry.

The Office unreleased footage

One awesome bonus of The Office leaving Netflix for Peacock is that the streaming service will also be making unreleased footage available for subscribers. While speaking to Bloomberg, Peacock and NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises chairman Matt Strauss revealed, “We will be reintroducing The Office in a more complete way, incorporating elements that were not part of the original broadcast.”

Getting to see unreleased footage from the Dunder Mifflin gang will definitely be incentive enough to sign up for Peacock when the show moves there in 2021.

When is The Office coming to Peacock?

While The Office is currently on Netflix, it won’t be for long—those streaming rights will expire by the end of the year. Fans will be able to see all of their favorite characters on Peacock in January of 2021, and Peacock will retain the streaming rights to the series for the next five years.
