What’s up with Jaqen H’ghar and the Faceless Men?

  • Jaqen H’ghar is probably the most confusing Game of Thrones character. Who is Jaqen? What’s his relationship with Arya? Is Jaqen Syrio Forel? Who’s the “alchemist” at Oldtown, and what does he want? What do the Faceless Men have to do with Valyria? Were the Faceless Men involved in the death of Balon Greyjoy? Could they be working with Euron Greyjoy to orchestrate a huge terrible blood sacrifice?

    This video contains spoilers for Season 6 of Game of Thrones, and Books 1-5 of ASOIAF, and a TWOW sample chapter read by GRRM.

    I always thought that Syrio and Jaquens teachings were similar because it was simply a kind of Braavosi sub culture kinda thing

    The thoughts of the secret assassin's/cult being connected to Arya's story arc makes complete sense even them going against slavery and the Targaryen's but connect to the Greyjoys?? Don't think so; doesn't make much sense or reason, think that Greyjoy was just crazy and need of power, lol.
