Game of Thrones fans lose it after spotting mystery ghost

Now, before we get into this, let's just make it clear that this could all be a huge coincidence, one that makes the Game of Thrones writers look very good.

Buckle up, you guys, because I'm about to dive into what might be Game of Thrones season seven's craziest theory so far (other than ice dragons, obviously. and also Bran being the Night King. maybe it's not so insane after all?!).

After long-suffering viewers were finally given a Stark family reunion with the remaining (also see: alive) members of the family, a mystery figure in the background has prompted fans to speculate a major character is about to hit up Westeros.

Can you spot the "ghost".

"At the word MOTHER you can see a woman in a long green dress w/ long auburn wavy hair with her head down walking past the background gate, resembling Cat", wrote GrennsGal.

The brief moment comes as Arya reminds Brienne - who remains a loyal servant and battle-hardened guardian to the Stark children - soberly reminds her of the promise she gave Catelyn before her brutal death. She seeks revenge on the Freys for the Red Wedding, a role Arya has basically filled in Season 7. Not only is there a heartbreaking connection to Arya's father, Ned Stark, but it turns out there might be a link to Arya's mother, Catelyn Stark, as well. He asks Arya's name, and later on she becomes No-One.

If the figure is indeed Catelyn Stark's ghost, it could mean the show is picking up a key storyline from George RR Martin's novels that until now has been left alone. This one comes courtesy of an eagle-eyed Redditor who thinks Lady Stoneheart aka Catelyn Stark made a cameo in "The Spoils of War".

This was a traumatic time.

But the Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, chose to dispense with the plotline altogether.

So if you're wondering where Arya gets her vengeance streak from, I think we've pin-pointed it. "That was probably the first major diversion of the show from the books and, you know, I argued against that, and David and Dan made that decision".
