If you were surprised by the ending of the Battle of Winterfell on Game of Thrones, you weren’t paying attention.

ScreenCrush’s Ryan Arey was paying attention. He’s been watching from the beginning and he’s put together all the clues that told us that (SPOILERS) Arya was going to be the one to kill the Night King. He explains how her journey led her to this exact moment at the Battle of Winterfell, why Jon Snow was always a red herring, and how prophecies in Game of Thrones aren’t always entirely accurate.

If you liked this video breaking down more all of the clues that Arya was destined to take down the Night King, check out some more of our videos below, including our complete Game of Thrones video recap that will catch you up on everything from the show’s first seven seasons, our essay on how religion ruled Game of Thrones, and our quiz peppering someone who’s never watched Game of Thrones about the show. Plus, there’s tons more over at ScreenCrush’s YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe to catch all our future episodes. We’ll have more Game of Thrones videos through the show’s final season on HBO.
