“There is only one god, and His name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: ‘ not today ‘,” master sword-fighter Syrio Forel had said to Arya during her training.
The High Valyrian phrase means “all men must die” and is traditionally answered with “valar dohaeris,” meaning “all men must serve.” Arya first learned the saying from the assassin Jaqen H’ghar when he gave her a coin and instructed her to say “valar morghulis” to anyone from Braavos in exchange for a free favor.
Before Arya runs off to take her place in the Godswood, the Red Woman says some familiar words to spur Arya into action: ” What do we say to the God of Death ?” The answer, as Arya knows all too well, is, “Not today.” But she wouldn’t know these words if not for her water dancing instructor, Syrio Forel.
“Sometimes there Is no happy choice, only one less grievous than the others.” Classic Jon Snow : a quote that is very depressing, but also true. “We look up at the same stars and see such different things.”
The Many-Faced God (alternatively known as the God of Death) is a deity worshiped by the mysterious cult of assassins known as the Faceless Men, who are headquartered in the Free City of Braavos and they believe that through their assassinations they do his work.
And as fans shared their reactions to Arya Stark’s jaw-dropping heroism, her catchphrase is inspiring many memes. The character of Melisandre reminds Arya of the words of her former “dance instructor” Syrio Forel on “What do we say to the God of death”, with the answer being ‘Not today’.

On the way to Riverrun, they encounter two men on Arya’s death list, Tickler and Polliver , who were both Gregor Clegane’s men-at-arms at Harrenhal. In the ensuing fight, Arya personally stabs Tickler to death and reclaims her sword Needle from Polliver’s corpse, but Sandor is severely injured.
A warg is a term for a skinchanger who specialises in controlling dogs and wolves. Arya Stark is believed to have some warg abilities, as her dreams often involve Nymeria, her direwolf. Jon Snow is also an untrained warg and can enter the body of Ghost.

What to Say “I’m so sorry to hear that John has died.” “ You are in my thoughts and prayers.” “ We will all miss Sally; she touched so many of our lives.” “What I am feeling right now is hard to put into words.” “He was such a creative person, and I am so sorry he died.” “I too have lost a son, and I am so sorry.”
Thanatos, in ancient Greek religion and mythology, the personification of death . Thanatos was the son of Nyx, the goddess of night, and the brother of Hypnos, the god of sleep. He appeared to humans to carry them off to the underworld when the time allotted to them by the Fates had expired.
In Season Five, Arya travels to Braavos, where she tracks down Jaqen H’ghar, who is a mysterious assassin of the Faceless Men. That is her character’s death: Arya is gone, in place of a nameless girl. But in Season Seven, Arya is reborn. After killing her rival The Waif, Arya comes face-to-face with a proud Jaqen.
Drogon spared Jon because he recognized that if Jon had killed Daenerys himself, he must have done it out of necessity.
Jon Snow’s death was inevitable, but so was his resurrection. Snow was killed at the end of season 5, after his ideas about what to do with the Wildlings and his stories about the White Walkers drove the rest of the Night’s Watch past their breaking point.
