'Game of Thrones' season 8: Maisie Williams triggers fears with bloody #LastWomanStanding farewell
Sophie Turner, who has been playing Sansa Stark for seven seasons now, had teased that there would be "more death than all the years before" in 'Game of Thrones' season 8.
Maise Williams has sent her 'Game of Thrones' fans on a chaotic overdrive with her farewell post. We all know, 2019 is going to be a big year for the cast of GOT — especially with the hit HBO series inching towards wrapping up production on the eighth and last season — as well as the followers of the fantasy show, who with bated breath have witnessed major characters being written off, huge plot twists unfold and the narrative being set for a final showdown. In these circumstances, any spoiler that surfaces from the set is just enough to fuel anticipation.
One such cryptic post that is currently keeping all the 'Game of Thrones' fans busy was shared by none other than actress Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark from the show. As it turns out, the 21-year-old English star recently finished her part of the filming on season 8 of GOT. And to mark the occasion, like most of her other co-stars, Williams took to social media to share her final goodbye to the character and the show, which has undoubtedly catapulted her to success.
Posting a glimpse of her bloody shoes the actress wrote alongside, “Goodbye Belfast. goodbye arya. goodbye game of thrones. what a joy i’ve had. here’s to the adventures to come. (sic)" She even threw in some hashtags for good measure writing, "#lastwomanstanding #barely #immasleepforthenextfouryears #justkiddingidontsleep”.
While the picture itself is quite a conversation-starter what further caught attention was the cryptic hashtag that followed. As rightly one observant follower commented, "What is that hashtag though! Dammit Maisie, tormenting us."
Another chimed in, writing, "Did she die or is she just finished filming." Looks like, all the theories are up in the air as of now. And Queen Cersei aka actress Lena Headey is not making it any better either. Just when the barrage of comments began, Headey quietly slid in, dropping a "Queen" comment on Williams' post accompanied by a crown emoticon.
"@iamlenaheadey are you saying @maisie_williams is queen at the end?! #spoileralert" asked one fan, echoing all our emotions. One more theorized, adding, "Did she just ruin the finale with her #lastwomanstanding hashtag? So your sister dies and you kill Cersei."
Perhaps we can find some solace in sister Sansa's words. Sophie Turner, who has been portraying the role for seven seasons now, had teased that there would be "more death than all the years before". And regardless of all the fan theories, the actress also assured that the finale is going to be absolutely "unpredictable".
“For me – without giving anything away, I guess – I was satisfied with how unpredictable the show's ending really is,” she told Digital Spy. “People have come up with so many fan theories about how it's going to end, and who will end up where, and who will end up with who. It really is so unpredictable the way that it ends up. I'm very satisfied with that, and I think that the fans will be satisfied with that, too. Well, we hope. We'll see!”
