Sadly, we have longer than usual to wait for the next season of Game of Thrones since winter has finally arrived and production must wait for darker, stormier weather. Luckily, Maisie Williams (aka Arya Stark) is here to share her thoughts on Season 7 and boy does it sound good.
“Just finished reading season 7,” she wrote on Twitter Monday night, confirming speculation that the cast (or at least Williams) does, in fact, get a copy of the entire script (not just the scenes they’re in).
Anyway, back to Season 7: “Sh— gets REAL,” she wrote. “I’d start preparing yourselves now.” It sounds as though “All men must die,” might be taken even more literally this season.
“Scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this,” she added, changing her mind. “Holy BALLS.”
As a refresher course, Season 6 ended with Daenerys sailing for Westeros, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark finally retaking Winterfell, and Cersei sitting on the Iron Throne. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) echoed Williams’s sentiments in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Though he hadn’t yet read any scripts, Harington was sure he was up for one heck of a season. “I think it’s going to be very bleak before if there is a happy ending,” he said. “I think it’s going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force.”
“I think with the whole 'winter is finally here' business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time.” That’s a big projection, especially coming from someone who recently returned from the dead.
