How Arya Stark killed the Night King in Game of Thrones

Since it was reported yesterday that Arya has put an end to the life of the Night King, fans of the popular series, Game of Thrones, have sought to know how Arya Stark killed the Night King.

It looks like the Great War between the living and the dead on the most popular series in the world has come to an end after over an hour of absolute stress.

It sounds impossible though, but after what looked like a hopeless battle with no end in sight, the Night King, leader of the White Walkers and wights, met his end.

And it wasn’t the King in the North Jon Snow, former knight Jaime Lannister, an Unsullied soldier, or a Wildling warrior that killed the head White Walker; it was Arya Stark.

As narrated by HarperBazzar, the gang at Winterfell followed most of the plan that they devised in the last episode: Hold off as much of the Army of the Dead for as long as they could, but leave Bran in the godswood to lure the Night King out. Eventually, the Night King does get to Bran, even getting through Theon and the Ironborn to reach his target.

But before he can do any harm to the new Three-Eyed Raven, Arya comes out of nowhere holding Littlefinger’s catspaw dagger and attacks him. The Night King first stops her in a chokehold and knocks the weapon out of her left hand, but she catches it with her right hand and stabs him—killing him, the White Walkers, and all the other wights.

Although Arya had a special dragonglass spear made by Gendry for battle, she ended up using Littlefinger’s dagger, which is made of Valyrian steel—a material known to kill White Walkers.

This dagger has been on Game of Thrones since Season 1. It was first used by an assassin sent to kill Bran after he survived being pushed out of the window by Jaime Lannister. Then in Season 7, Arya uses it to kill Littlefinger himself. It only makes sense that Arya saved her little brother using the very dagger that almost killed him in Season 1.
