Game of Thrones Theory Argues Arya's True Target in King's Landing is Daenerys

Warning: Spoilers for all aired episodes of Game of Thrones ahead.

In Game of Thrones, no one ever really knows what Arya Stark is planning until she carries it out. Her training with the Faceless Men taught her to be exceptionally stealthy and clever. We saw it when she sprang out of nowhere and killed the Night King earlier this season, and when she killed the waif in Braavos back in season 6. We aren’t sure what tricks she has up her sleeve for the remaining two episodes, but if her final scene in “The Last of the Starks,” the latest episode, is anything to go by, she’s scheming for something big.

Redditor richmondjd11 posed a theory regarding where exactly Arya is going and what she’ll do when she gets there. The last time we saw her, she was once again on the road with the Hound, heading down to King’s Landing together. Neither characters would reveal what their “unfinished business” was at the capital, but both claimed they didn’t have any intentions of coming back. The theorist believes that Arya is headed to King's Landing to kill someone, but it’s not Cersei Lannister or the Mountain.

The theory argues that Arya will go to King’s Landing to kill Daenerys Targaryen, but will fail, resulting in the Mother of Dragons killing her. Jon Snow will see this happen, according to the Redditor, and will realize that Dany has turned into a monster.

As “The Last of the Starks” showed just how badly Dany wants the Iron Throne, the Redditor believes she’s now “the same as Cersei and the Night King” in that “she is blinded by her goal.” It’s possible Arya would want to eliminate her because she’s a potential danger to Jon, the true heir to the throne.

“Jon is in danger. And in typical Jon fashion, he is too blinded by his emotions to recognize this,” the fan explains. “Sansa and Arya are not blinded by emotions. Sansa goes full Littlefinger and tells Tyrion. Meanwhile Arya rides south. Arya’s real target is Dany.”

The fan theory concludes by claiming that Jon will then kill Daenerys for killing Arya and speculates that this could complete the Prince That Was Promised prophecy. It’s true that if Dany goes full Mad Queen, whoever would kill her would be a savior.

Fans are under the impression that since Arya defeated the Night King, she might not get any more big kills for the rest of the series. Whether or not that’s true is up for debate, but we should expect her to at least try and kill someone else. We know she has a plan going down to King’s Landing, and we have only two episodes remaining to find out what that is.
