Greywater-Watch Posted October 2, 2019 Share Posted October 2, 2019 It came to me when reading threads on the Mercy chapter. There were two main theories about Arya's killing of Raff the Sweetling: 1) The FM (and thus probably the Iron Bank) ordered her to do this (or something comparable) in order to sabotage Harys Swyft's mission. 2) There has been no such order and Arya did it on her own. If Theory 1 is true, the question is, why would the IB want this? One important point is then: Would the IB support two enemy parties at the same time? Or (in case the timeline is correct, that Tycho Nestoris went to Stannis before Harys Swyft came to Braavos), once the IB decided to support an enemy party to the Iron Throne, this would mean the IB would stop all support to the Iron Throne from then on? I think if Theory 1 is true, it would make sense that the IB stops all support of the Iron Throne at once. But not openly, as the commonly known threat, that angering the IB could turn out in the support of ennemies by the IB is in my opinion stronger, as long as it remains a threat.
