Get out your favorite mulled wine and mead because Game of Thrones is on its way out. Well, not completely. We still won’t be seeing it until the middle of next year, but over the course of the past several weeks, we’ve been hearing stories about everyone wrapping up their roles, leaving us to question whether or not they actually made it to the very end of the series.
This time around we are talking about the youngest lead, Maisie Williams, who plays the dark and tormented Arya Stark. Of course, the character was the youngest of the Stark family, and the one who’s arguably gone through the most emotional transformation as she’s been thrown around from place to place. She’s fittingly become perhaps the scrappiest character on screen. She’s made it this far, and now Williams has wrapped her role…so what can we expect from her?
“[The final scene was] beautiful. I ended on the perfect scene. 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.”
Yeah, I know. Sorry, conspiracy theorists, but there isn’t a whole lot to go one here. TV shows are never shot in order, so it’s not as though we can expect her last scene to be her actual last scene in the show. That being said, it’s no surprise that she’s alone. By and large, she’s worked much better as a solo act, and when all said and done, it’d be poetic if she were to exit this show by herself.
Personally, I think the girl’s headed towards her demise. I have no evidence to back this up, but I can see her as sort of the big tragic figure of the show — an example of what happens when you become corrupted by the concept of revenge. Then again, the showrunners have never exactly gone with the most obvious moral compass, so who knows, right?
How do you think Arya Stark will exit the show? Let us know down below!
