A short time after Kit Harington mentioned he hadn't even read the Season 7 scripts for Game of Thrones yet, Maisie Williams got her hands on them. While the HBO drama notoriously tries to keep any spoilers under wraps, that shouldn't stop the cast from sharing their feelings on what is coming, even if they can't reveal any big details to us. According to Maisie Williams, Season 7 is going to be a real doozy.
Just finished reading Season 7. Shit gets real. I'd start prepping yourselves now. Scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this. Holy BALLS.
The actress took to Twitter to share her reaction to finishing the Season 7 scripts in a flurry of Tweets that we added punctuation to for clarity. Clearly, the young Emmy contender's mind was completely blown by what she read, which hopefully means her character, Arya Stark, has some particularly intriguing plotlines coming, now that she's made her way out of Braavos and back into the country she was born in.
Her big reaction to Season 7 is coming just a few short weeks after the actress spoke out about where she sees her character going in the future. At the time, she compared her character to The Hound and noted she doesn't want the happy ending of becoming a Stark again. In fact, she'd prefer the lonely road to some form of familial happiness in the end:
I'd love for her to be a bit of a lone ranger, I'd love for her to be kind of like The Hound. I don't really want her to reunite with her family because I don't think that they're the same people anymore or that she's the same person anymore. I think she's better off on her own. I'd love for her to be alive, actually, and be her own boss.
While it was a great moment when Sansa and Jon Snow reunited on Game of Thrones, Arya's future has looked different for quite some time at this point. Because she trained with the House of Black and White and has skills as an assassin, some have speculated that she may finish out the kill list that she started so many seasons ago on the show. Even Lena Headey, who plays Cersei on the series, has speculated that Arya's future lies more in her skill sets than in her Stark loyalty, and that would be very okay with many of us.
Unfortunately, we still have quite some time before we get to catch up with Arya and the rest of the Game of Thrones cast. The show is waiting on winter, so filming hasn't even commenced at this point. Traditionally, we don't even get new episodes until late in the spring, and we'll let you know once HBO announces an actual premiere date. In the meantime, you can find out what we know about the upcoming Season 7.
