I recently wrote another Game of Thrones article, about how Arya might soon be reunited with Nymeria and her pack of direwolves. But HBO may have revealed that Arya will soon be reuniting with another old ally.

An Old Friend Of Arya Returns

Today, HBO release a slew of new pictures from Episode 8, titled "No One." Among them is a picture of the Waif.

Who's that creeping behind the Waif?

If you look behind her, in the shadows, there is a man that looks suspiciously like Arya's old sword-fighting trainer — Syrio Forel! For several seasons fans have speculated that he was not dead. They never did show his murder, just the sound of his fighting while he muttered "not today," as Arya ran away.

Take a closer look at the picture alongside one of Syrio.

What Do You Think?

HBO further teased us in the episode synopsis:

While Jaime weighs his options, Cersei answers a request. Tyrion’s plans bear fruit. Arya faces a new test.

I think "faces" is the key word for Arya as she is battling the faceless. With the episode title No One, the synopsis of Arya, and the released picture, one thing is certain: Arya fans are in for a rollercoaster ride.
