The second episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 revealed a lot of secretsn. Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) may have plans to use one of them in the near future against Jon Snow.
Arya Stark and Gendry (Joe Dempsie) have been seen spending a lot of time together lately. The fans finally got to see the two of them share an intimate moment in Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2. This was long awaited by many. But Gendry’s secret was an even more important revelation than that.
Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers: Will Arya Stark betray Jon Snow?
Gendry told Arya all about his journey to the North. Then he revealed his true parentage and said that he was Robert Baratheon’s bastard. He explained that Melisandre (Carice van Houtem) told him all about it. As we already fan, after Joffrey and Tommen’s death, he is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.
Even though Arya didn’t seem to pay much attention to it, some GoT season 8 spoilers she might use it soon. Not many people know about Gendry’s true parentage and he wouldn’t like to reveal about it. But since the time Jon came to know that his parental lineage in the previous Game of Thrones season 8 episode, things got a little complicated.
Arya is not good at conveying politics, but she surely knows the importance of Gendry’s bloodline. She will use it when the time is right and comes face-to-face with Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister. But what will be the true motive behind this revelation? Is Arya paving her way to the Iron Throne considering her romantic relation with Gendry?
Meanwhile, we also got to know that the Night King’s real target is Bran Stark. Considering the fact that he is the Three-Eyed Raven. It only makes sense as he previously killed the former three-Eyed Ravens beyond the Wall.
