‘Game Of Thrones’ Analysis: The Faceless Men Predicted Hodor and Summer’s Death?
“Game of Thrones” fans who have stuck with the show since its beginning knows that there are no such things as coincidence when it comes to the show. Another such coincidence are being put under the spotlight as the whole fandom mourns the loss of Hodor and Summer.Advertisement
According to HelloGiggles, the possibility of both characters dying was unknown to everyone up until the White Walkers attacked the cave of the Three-Eyed Raven. If they have a keen attention to detail, Jaqen H’ghar’s conversation with Arya Stark would have rung some alarm bells.
Earlier in the episode, Arya was getting a beating from the Waif in which she was told that she will never be one of the Faceless Men. As if on cue, Jaqen enters the room and agrees with the Waif’s comments. Arya stunned by the Faceless Man’s words follows him to the hall of faces.
After talking about the how the House of Black and White was founded, Jaqen H’ghar proceeded to give Arya a mission and telling her that although she has been given a second chance, there will not be a third. She is to murder an actress and she goes to watch her performance.
To her shock, the play is about the final days of her father in King’s Landing from the first season of “Game of Thrones‘.” The actress she is supposed to kill is the playing the role of Cersei Lannister. She then follows her to the dressing room to which she decides on the method on how to kill her.
Back at the House of Black and White, she tells Jaqen that her target seems to be a good person. He proceeds to answer her saying “Does death only come for the wicked and leave the decent behind?” before telling her that they are servants of the Red God and servants do not question.
True enough, later in the episode, two decent characters were killed in the worst possible way. Hodor, whom actor Isaac Hempstead Wright described as the-the only character in the show without a clear agenda and the direwolf Summer.
Was their death demanded or was it merely payment for another life stolen from the Red God? These events in “Game of Thrones” seem eerily close to being just coincidences. This time though, fans know better and will be on the lookout for more subtle hints in future episodes of the show.
