[SPOILERS] for Season 6 of HBO’s Game of Thrones ahead (Up to episode 3). Show theory, not books.
User singh_sahil24 on Reddit, posted a new fan theory, having to do with the young Rickon Stark, to the Game of Thrones subreddit.
The idea, is that the way the Waif attacks Arya in training, is representative of the ways a certain character on the show gets injured (or worse).
The GIF below summarizes the theory quite well.
We still don’t know what fate holds for young brother Stark. Could this mean that the poor boy may lose his legs?
Other theories suggest Rickon is a Trojan Horse inserted into Ramsay’s base of operations by Stark loyalists. That would be in Rickon’s favor, but at least for now, seems less likely. In light of Shaggydog’s fate it seems even less likely. We don’t see Rickon sacrificing his dire-wolf so easily.
What do you think about the theory? Let us know in the comments.
