    no but if they're all the same (no one) then they share the same mindset which is the assassin guild's policy

    I think what Jacquen meant was 'yes, you can kill them....when it's time to kill them' When 'he' or the many faced god says it's their time. Then their life is hers to take, but not before then

    in that case Jaqen wasn't really honest with Arya as he suggested she could use her training to exact revenge - if she realizes that she won't be able to this way then chances are she'll leave the assassin's guild

    Jaqen H’ghar was schooling Arya that one can't just take any life. The people he killed for Arya was in return for the lives she saved.

    Its not up to her who gets killed and who gets spared. Its up to this 'many faced god'.


    As the Faceless Men forsake their identities for the service of the Many-Faced God, they only assassinate targets they have been hired to kill and may not choose who is worthy of the 'gift' by themselves.

    in that case Jaqen lied to Arya

    btw if lives saved must be paid by taking lives, shouldn't lives taken be paid by saving lives?

    Yes and No. More like he didn't tell her the whole truth. Most people, especially kids can only 'take things in', in stages.

    "A girl has many names on her lips. Names to offer up to the Red God. She could offer them all one by one"

    maybe not 100% unequivocal but it's quite clear he's saying she could use the assassin training to carry out her vendetta (tbh I did find it odd that he would tell her to join a religious faction whose only purpose is to serve only a god while at the same time use her membership for her own personal "selfish" purposes but that's basically what he's telling her)
