Maisie Williams opens up about her final scene in Game of Thrones

Spoilers are coming

Game of Thrones will return next year for its final season, and while some of the cast have spoken about how it felt to shoot their final scenes, they’ve been super secretive about what’s actually in store for some of our fave characters.

Can Sansa Stark really be trusted? Where’s Jaime Lannister off to? What’s going to happen when Jon Snow and Daenerys find out they’re related? And has Arya Stark’s bag of faces reached full capacity?

Enter Maisie Williams, who has revealed exactly what happened when she filmed her last scene as Arya.

The young Stark has seen/done/killed a lot over the last seven years, and while we’re all rooting for the King of the North and co to end up as one big, happy family, fans of the show aren’t getting their hopes up. After all, look what happened to poor old Rob Stark when we thought he was getting a happy ending.

So will Arya meet a similar grisly fate?

Here’s what she told The Guardian about filming her final scene for the show – describing it as ‘beautiful’.

‘I ended on the perfect scene,’ she revealed.

‘I was alone—shocker! Arya’s always bloody alone. But I was alone and I had watched a lot of other people wrap. I knew the drill, I had seen the tears and heard the speeches.’

Maisie then went on to explain that as it all came to an end, she decided to give a final speech.

‘It wasn’t something I planned. But in that moment I realised what the show meant to me.’

Why was Arya alone? Does that mean she won’t make it to the end? And who will inherit her bag of faces?

So many questions.

Game of Thrones, you can come back to us now, thanks.
