We know from early teasers for Season 5 of Game of Thrones that Arya Stark comes to a building with a black doorway and a white door. But what is this place with black and white doors? Spoilers by Season 4 of Game of Thrones and by A Dance with Dragons (the fifth book in A Song of Ice and Fire ahead).
At a finish of final deteriorate of Game of Thrones, we saw Arya Stark leave a Hound behind. Sandor Clegane was presumably failing a delayed and unpleasant death, and Arya refused to broach a final blow and finish it. She walked divided and came to a boat headed to Braavos; she requested passage. Why a Free City of Braavos? Well, dual pivotal people she encountered recently were from there: Syrio Forel, a First Sword of Braavos who taught Arya H2O dancing and Jaqen H’ghar, a male who helped Arya shun Harrenhal. And H’ghar gave her a interruption present that would lead her to Braavos.
He indeed offering to take Arya to Braavos to join a Faceless Men, though she declined. instead, H’ghar gave her a iron silver of a Faceless Man and told Arya that if she did finish adult going to Braavos that she contingency uncover a silver to a Braavosi and contend “Valar morghulis.” It means “All group contingency die.” After he imparted this information, H’ghar altered his face. It’s a kind of thing that creates an impression.
Back to a finish of Season 4, Arya showed a captain of a boat her silver and pronounced a suitable words. He replied with “Valar dohaeris” that means “All group contingency serve.” Arya gained thoroughfare to Braavos and a cabin, and while we don’t know what trail will lead her to a building with black and white doors, we know she gets there. And we know from A Song of Ice and Fire that it is a House of Black and White.
The House of Black and White initial seemed in a fourth book of a series, A Feast for Crows. It is a church that serves a Many-Faced God and a base/training core for a Faceless Men. The Many-Faced God is also famous as a God of Death. Remember what Syrio Forel told Arya when he lerned her? “There is usually one god, and his name is Death. And there is usually one thing we contend to Death: ‘Not today.'” If we offer a God of Death, does it meant we can shun him some-more easily?
Arya is instituted into a guild of a Faceless Men. She has to give adult most in sequence to make this leap, including her temperament and her element objects before she can start training. The church has few levels and Arya eventually learns a House of Black and White has collected faces to use as disguises. Yuck. Her training starts in A Feast for Crows and continues in A Dance With Dragons. Given a approach we’ve seen them precipitate several stories before for a radio series, we wouldn’t be astounded if Season 5 of Game of Thrones catches adult to Arya’s stream arc in a books. That means we could see uninformed element for Arya as early as Season 6, and that’s a rather exciting, if scary, thought.
