  • 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.Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1NtFJufFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alt-Sh...Twitter: https://twitter.com/AltShiftXTumblr: http://altshiftx.tumblr.com/Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/AltShiftXBuy A Game of Thrones (ASOIAF Book 1): http://amzn.to/292JmwyBuy ASOIAF Books 1-5: http://amzn.to/2970vVuCreated with Adobe After Effects and a Blue Yeti USB microphone.Images and video from Game of Thrones are the property of their creators, used here under fair use.References / further reading:https://www.reddit.com/r/asoiaf/comme...https://www.reddit.com/r/asoiaf/comme...http://asoiafuniversity.tumblr.com/po...http://watchersonthewall.com/maisie-w...http://ign.com/articles/2016/04/13/ga...http://nobodysuspectsthebutterfly.tum...https://www.reddit.com/r/asoiaf/comme...Thanks to the following Patrons: Jason A.

    Syrio might have a similar philosophy to Jacen because they’re both from Bravoos and their culture is deeply influenced by the faceless men.

    But the faceless men pointed out that being a "facesless man" is something different entirely ...

    Pumblechook 1 maybe. It could have also been them mining too deep into the Fourteen Flames. Or it could have been them misusing magic. Who knows 🤷🏽‍♀️

    The original Faceless Men were Valyrian slaves... They'd kill Valyrian masters for a slave sacrificing their life to them...The slaves sacrificed themselves to destroy the Valyrians. Ho JEEEEZ I think you got it!

  • 2016...simpler yet more exciting times. A time when we actually thought the show was going to provide amazing revelations, backstory, intricately detailed relationships and maybe a bit of beautifully written closure. Instead, welcome to season 8. The final season that has arrived probably 2 seasons too soon. Because it’s too complicated so... dracarys.

    HomeValue Glass you’ll love the books then. I ended up listening to the audiobooks but they were still incredibly entertaining. His writing style is so enjoyable to read/listen to

    DMart honestly, it’ll probably help him sell more copies of winds of winter. I mean, he banks already, but he’s gonna really bank when his books get released.

    A man is perhaps the most intriguing character in the entire story.

    I’m hoping for a spin-off, but I’ll take a few more mentions from the upcoming books.

    @Chells except then they wouldn't be as mysterious.

    Why did Danaerys never buy more Dragon Eggs. There's plenty around (if expensive) and she knows how to hatch them.
