“‘Please,’ Sam begged as he beat and yanked on the grate, then tried to wedge another dagger under the lid. 'Please don’t.’
She knew he wasn’t speaking to her.
The water hit her neck.
'Please,’ Sam moaned, his fingers now touching hers. She’d have one last breath. Her last words.
'Take my body home to Terrasen, Sam,’ she whispered. And with a gasping breath, she went under.’”
One of the most heart wrenching scenes in the Assassin’s Blade!! I just had to draw it

The cunning bird - ToG7 theory
So while i was rereading Tower of Dawn and on chapter 65, page 638, the conversation between Sartaq, Nesryn, Yrene and Chaol caught my little eye :
"The owl must be the Fae form of a healer. Some healer of hers that she keeps - as a bodyguard. Has let everyone believe to be some pet..."
Now, I'm not saying that this goddamn owl will play a HUGE role in Aelin's rescue mission, but that's exactly what I'm saying.
AND we have this foreshadowing in The assassin's blade ( The Assassin and the Underworld ), which may i quote is :
"The dancing was breathtaking, yes, and the story it told was certainly lovely - a legend of a prince seeking to rescue his bride, and the cunning bird he captured to help him do it - but the music."
The owls are birds that symbolize wisdom and in the ToG universe it's the symbol of the goddess Silba. And if that bird is Maeve's bodyguard, it would mean that she goes everywhere with her.
I even looked at some stuff and i found that the owl is the symbol of other things such as :
▪ Capacity to see beyond deceit and masks. - Mask. What is Maeve wearing? One big ass mask, she made everyone believe that she was a Fae queen, while she actually was a FREAKING DEMON.
▪ Intuition, ability to see what others do not see. - It would mean that if the Fae didn't know Maeve's true identity, at this point already he figured out.
▪ The owl is the announcer of death, most likely symbolic like a life transition, change. - I don't like that death thing but let's hope that it would be something really symbolic, not in a literal way.
I don't know if the owl will leave some signs to the squad and help them find our queen. Or Chaol and Yrene will meet them and tell Rowan that the bird isn't just a pet, and then our bby hawk will capture the Fae.
Either way that goddamn bird knows too much and will play a bigger role in this story.
