    People Think Arya's Going To Die On "Game Of Thrones" Because Of The Drake Curse

    If Arya dies, dare I say, it must have been "God's Plan"?

    Last night was the BBMAs and during one of Drake's acceptance speeches he gave a shout out to overall badass, Arya Stark.

    A lot of people, me included, were LIVING for this call out:

    drake literally just said "shout out to arya stark for putting in that work last week" in his acceptance speech and i've honestly never seen the billboard music awards before but it is now my favorite one

    BUT, his shout out actually sparked a lil' bit of concern for Arya Stark.

    Drake’s curse better not apply to fictional characters! Arya Hive don’t play https://t.co/ykr8V5opYx

    What is the "Drake curse" you may ask? Allow me to explain.

    ~Basically~ the "Drake curse" is the phenomenon that anyone — usually a sports team or athlete — that Drake backs publicly is doomed.

    Don't believe me? Take Serena Williams back in 2015. Serena was favored to take home the Grand Slam title after the season of her LIFE! Instead, she lost in the wildest of upsets with Drake in the audience.

    Think that was a concidence? Think again! Let's look at Connor McGregor. Brilliant UFC fighter until the moment he brought Drake out with him. What happened, you may ask? His ass GOT SMOKED TO BITS!

    Once is chance. Twice is a coincidence. Thrice? That's a curse. And that curse comes in the shape of the Toronto Raptors, an NBA team that's lost, quite sadly, every year since Drake was appointed as their Global Ambassador.

    This has happened for many an athlete / athletic team. I'm not one to believe in curses but...

    And now we Throners fear that the same losing fate will fall upon Arya!

    Cersei sent Drake to kill Arya with his weapon of choice: The Curse

    Lord, do not let this girl die. "I pray, I pray."

    Here's hoping Arya prevails and breaks this curse. She's still got those green eyes to kill!
