Warning: This article contains potential spoilers for this weekend’s episode.
Game of Thrones possibly gave away the long-awaited return of a major character in publicity pictures for this weekend’s episode.
In the picture above from “No One,” you can clearly see the Faceless Men’s assassin the Waif (Faye Marsay) on the hunt for Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).
But who is that shadowy, mysterious figure behind the Waif? Many fans can’t help but notice a striking physical resemblance to Syrio Forel (Miltos Yerolemou), Arya’s presumed-dead sword-fighting instructor.
Remember, Game of Thrones never directly showed Miltos Yerolemou’s die on-screen from a Lannister army onslaught back in season one. Another piece of evidence is that Water Dancing master Syrio hailed from Braavos, the very same land Arya is currently trying to escape while being trailed by the Faceless Men.
Even more intriguing is that the actor Miltos Yerolemou retweeted this very same ‘No One’ image AND a fan message asking for Game of Thrones to “please let [Syrio’s return] happen”.
CAn help be expected for Arya in this episode?
