Syrio is dead. His really being Jaqen, etc. would greatly cheapen this gorgeous scene.
Elsewhere in this chapter:
- The coincidence of Arya running across Hullen just as he dies is a bit much.
- “This time the [dragon skulls] did not frighten her. They seemed almost old friends.” Foreshadowing?
- Old Nan says: there are spiders and “rats as big as dogs” in the Winterfell crypt.
- Great line: “she’d killed him, and if he jumped out at her she’d kill him again.”
