Why the White Horse in 'Game of Thrones' Plays a Bigger Role Than You Realized

By

Warning: Major Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 5 spoilers ahead. 

"I will take what is mine with fire and blood."  Daenerys Targaryen made sure of that on Episode 5 titled "The Bells," on Game of Thrones. The Dragon Queen stormed King’s Landing with her army and laid waste to every civilian who was in her range of fire (pun intended). Yes, the "Mad Queen theory" has come true. 

While many titular characters died in the penultimate episode, one character that survived after almost being buried under the rubble was Arya Stark. She initially entered King’s Landing to act out her revenge plan against Queen Cersei (RIP), but rethought her decision after The Hound had a few last parting words. When she tries to escape, audiences watch as one of our favorite characters is running for her life amongst a crowd of burned bodies, slashed throats, and overall death and destruction at the hand’s of Daenerys.
