If you've seen the first episode of the final season of 'Game of Thrones', you'd have come across many things that may seem very probable. That's exactly how and why theories come into place, isn't it? And I believe you already have a few of them tucked under your belt. For instance, after seeing Lord Umber trapped in the 'death swirl' created by the Night King, we do believe the swirl has some relevance in the last season, since we've been seeing it since season 1. It could also mean it has a prominent clue on how to defeat the Night King and his army. Well, that's what theories do, build interest and a narrative for the show. © HBO Similarly, there's another theory doing the rounds. Remember Arya and Gendry and how they parted ways? It broke our hearts to see them bid adieu in the most unfavourable circumstances, but they meet again in season 8, where they are both relieved the other is alive. Gendry, a blacksmith, is busy at Winterfell forging weapons from Dragonglass and Valyrian Steel to defeat the Wights and the White Walkers and being an ace blacksmith himself, he makes some rather indestructible weapons. After a flirtatious banter between the two, Arya asks Gendry to forge her a weapon and I think that's the most romantic gesture I've seen off late! An assassin asking her former crush to craft her the finest weapon of all. Well, we do believe it's the finest because the weapon Arya has asked Gendry to make for her will play a pivotal role in the season. © HBO Let's look at all the facts here. Arya pulls out a drawing and passes it on to Gendry so he can make it. The weapon looks like a double-ended spear/staff, with a Dragonglass and a Valyrian Steel blade on each end, both detachable. Now, if you see the season 8 trailer again, you'll see Arya fight with a weapon that looks like a staff, and not to forget she got adequate training fighting with a staff when she was trying to become one of the 'Faceless Men', so it all adds up I suppose. But that's not all. According to Tommy Dunne, the weapon master of Game Of Thrones, there is a creation in season 8, which is apparently going to steal the show and I bet it's the weapon Aryá asks Gendry to make for her! © HBO “There is one creation in season 8 that is absolutely phenomenal. It'll be a showstopper. That was great to finish. It was great to make, great to design it that it was about to be reverse-engineered and made into two different items.” Dunne told a popular international publication. Does he mean Arya's weapon may put an end to the show? I wonder! Well, we really can't wait to know what Gendry forges for Arya and if the weapon itself is a showstopper like Tommy said. After all, the weapon Arya asks Gendry to make does have two pointy ends!
