Game of Thrones: Now that Cersei may be dead, does Arya’s “green eyes” prophecy mean she’ll kill Daenerys?

Now that Game of Thrones’ Battle of Winterfell has been fought and won, with King’s Landing being destroyed, and Cersei Lannister probably dead in the arms of her brother-lover Jaime, fans are now wondering which green-eyed character is Arya Stark going to kill?

Melisandre set the green-eyed guessing game into motion in season eight, episode three, “The Long Night,” when she gave Arya a much-needed pep talk during the Night King’s siege.

The Red Witch referenced their season three encounter, when she saw Arya’s future and declared, “I see a darkness in you. And in that darkness, eyes staring back at me: brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes. Eyes you’ll shut forever.”

Arya confirmed to Melisandre that since they’d last met, she had indeed shut some people’s eyes forever (translation: yes, she killed people). And among her more “notable” murders was that of Walder Frey, whom she dispatched in the season six episode “The Winds of Winter” — and who had brown eyes.

But at the time of Arya and Melisandre’s mid-episode chat, she hadn’t killed any particularly high-profile green- or blue-eyed beings.

Of course, that changed by episode’s end, when Arya killed the blue-eyed Night King, destroying his Army of the Dead and saving the forces of the living. With that villain out of the way, viewers began to speculate that Cersei would be next on Arya’s kill list.

However, in season eight, episode five, titled “The Bells,” — the emerald-eyed Cersei is speculated to have died when the Red Keeps walls collapsed upon her and Jamie. She probably may still be alive as Game Of Thrones keeps surprising viewers.

But if she is dead, that leaves Melisandre’s prophecy unfulfilled.

The result is that, going into Game of Thrones’ series, it seems that Arya still has one more big kill to pull off. She’s theoretically destined to ensure the demise of a character with green eyes. And it just so happens that a certain dragon queen may have green eyes, too.

With queen Daenerys madness in episode five after burning down the entire city of Kings Landing, killing hundreds of innocent - and nearly burning Arya herself -  many fans wont be disappointed if the Mother of Dragons becomes the much expected green-eyed being to be killed by the hero of Winterfell in the series finale episode 6.
