HBO Just Gave 'Game of Thrones' Fans a Hint About What Happens to Arya

Is her future as grim as it seems?

Warning: This article contains major spoilers about last week's episode of Game of Thrones, and possible spoilers for the upcoming plot.

On Sunday night's Game of Thrones, Arya fails to carry out her command to kill an actress, thus disobeying Jaqen H'ghar and putting her at risk of death. He sends the Waif after her, and at the end of the episode, she stabs Arya in the stomach and tosses her into the water, leaving her for dead. Arya then manages to get out of the river and walk around Braavos, holding onto her bleeding torso.

As we've seen countless times (The Hound, anyone?), leaving someone for dead on Game of Thrones usually means they're still alive and kicking. HBO has released a new episode teaser for Sunday night's episode, which is the eighth of the sixth season, and it makes it clear that Arya has a major plot line.

The episode is called "No One," which is an obvious reference to Arya's experience with the Faceless Men and the Many-Faced God. Here's the full episode description, as released by HBO:

"While Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) weighs his options, Cersei (Lena Headey) answers a request. Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) plans bear fruit. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a new test."
