One Sentence May Be a Major GOT Clue

Yes, spoilers ahead

(Newser) – Warning: Spoilers ahead. Sunday night's episode of Game and Thrones brought Arya and Melisandre together for a second time, and there was some major foreshadowing in their brief exchange—perhaps even more than viewers initially realized, Mashable reports. In their first meeting, Melisandre had this to say: "I see a darkness in you. And in that darkness, eyes staring back at me. Brown eyes. Blue eyes. Green eyes. Eyes you'll shut forever. We will meet again." Those eye colors were repeated by Melisandre—"Brown eyes, green eyes, and blue eyes"—when the two briefly spoke at Winterfell during the fierce battle against the White Walkers, with Arya going on to kill the blue-eyed Night King. But here's the clue that remains.

As some fans tweeted, Arya has already fulfilled another third of Melisandre's prophecy: She famously killed Walder Frey, and fans posted photos showing him with brown eyes. Harper's Bazaar points out Polliver and Ser Meryn Trant fall into this eye-color category. So who has green eyes? Someone with a big target on her back. George RR Martin wrote this of Cersei: "A jeweled tiara gleamed amidst her long golden hair, its emeralds a perfect match for the green of her eyes." Harper's Bazaar recounts another fan theory: That Arya will kill the green-eyed Jaime Lannister and use his face to kill Cersei, thereby fulfilling the prophecy she was told in childhood that the "Valonqar" (Valyrian for "little brother") will kill her. PopSugar reports it's possible that's not Tyrion but Jaime, her younger twin brother. (Read more analysis of Season 8, Episode 3 here.)
