Did ‘Game Of Thrones’ Actress Maisie Williams Just Drop An Atomic Spoiler For Season 5?
Actress Maisie Williams plays Arya Stark on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’, and she’s arguably the best character on the show.
In between shooting scenes for ‘Game of Thrones’ Williams has been working on a new TV drama-documentary titled ‘Cyber Bully’. Set to air in 2015, Maisie Williams has been making the press rounds, and in a recent interview she dropped what is potentially an atomic bomb of a spoiler for Season 5 of ‘Game of Thrones’.
WARNING: Game OF Thrones Season 5 Spoilers Ahead
In a recent interview with the Guardian for her new drama “Cyber Bully,” actress Maisie Williams may have revealed that we’re about to lose another Stark, saying there’s a “big ending” for Arya.
What? Big ending? Say it ain’t so!
“We’re coming to the end now, so I don’t know what they’re going to do next year. It’s the end of Arya, as far as anyone knows,” said Williams.
Before you completely freak out, take some deep breaths … and then feel free to completely freak out.
With the losses of Ned, Catelyn and Robb already, author George R.R. Martin is quickly running out of beloved characters to kill, but don’t give up on Arya just yet.
Though Williams’ words seem foreboding, the young Stark is still currently alive in Martin’s books. In fact, she’s even the subject of a released excerpt from The Winds of Winter, the upcoming novel in Martin’s fantasy series.
When we last saw Arya in Season 4, she had boarded a ship out of Westeros. In the books, she travels to Braavos and takes on new identities, eventually studying to become an assassin.
Dropping the Arya moniker may be what Williams is referring to; however, only time will tell. As we all know, the show has differed greatly from the books in the past. You know what they say: All men Starks must die.
So if we’re sticking with the trend of spoilers, I can begin to speculate on just exactly what this means. If you have NOT read the books and you ARE actively trying to spoil the show for yourself, continue reading:
What I believe we will see this season is a transition in Arya’s persona. She will definitely not cease to exist as a person or character, but much in the way that jaqen h’ghar (the faceless man who saved her life) changed his face and outward appearance, so too will Arya Stark begin a transformation into a deadlier weapon in the much larger Game of Thrones.
But, I could be wrong…I guess we’ll see this season.
