Internet, start your Game of Thrones-Altered Carbon shared-universe
by Randall Colburn
Netflix wants this thing to not just be a hit, but to be a phenomenon
on par with Game of Thrones. They even recruited Emmy-winning Game Of
Thrones alums Alex Graves and Miguel Sapochnik behind the camera.
Now, it appears one of those directors has taken the HBO series
influence even further. Raven-eyed (or should we say sparrow-eyed?)
viewers will notice a familiar symbol in the first seasons third
episode, which was helmed by Sapochnik.
In the upper left-hand corner of the above screenshot, youll see a
seven-pointed star, which, in the world of Westeros, represents both
the seven-in-one godhead of its dominant religion as well as the
religious text it uses as a guide. It was wielded with a tyrannical
madness by the High Sparrow throughout seasons five and six, and were
really hoping Jonathan Pryce isnt poised to reprise that role here,
because that dude was a drag.
While this is likely just a little nod to fellow fans, other Redditors
have pointed out what looks like a seven-pointed star on the ring of a
police officer. Maybe, then, the religion is poised to play a larger
role in the series? Or maybe were all just overthinking it.
