Brace yourself before the storm. With winter coming in the form of Game Of Thrones' seventh season, fans are anxiously awaiting the action-packed continuation of the HBO series. Following the Season 6 finale, even more characters were sent to their grave, and Cersei Lannister finally took her long-awaited place on the Iron Throne. However, just as expected, the game is far from being over. Upon reading the latest scripts, Maisie Williams tweeted her reactions to Game of Thrones Season 7. Not only does that confirm that pre-production for Season 7 is well underway, but Williams also expressed what sounds like a reaction to the unbearable amount of surprises to come. If she had trouble holding all of her emotions in, then odds are that the viewers will have that same problem come Season 7's premiere.
In a number of different tweets, Williams gave her very unfiltered opinion by saying, "Sh*t gets REAL," "i'd start preparing yourselves now," and "scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this." Even in the way she splits up her reactions, it's clear that some serious stuff is about to go down — whether your heart can actually handle it or not. Just read her emotion-packed tweets for yourself.
But what does this all mean? Well, for one, it means that Season 7 is no laughing matter. However, it can also mean that Arya Stark is one of the clear survivors of the seventh season. Since Williams is reading all of the scripts for Season 7, I doubt she's gotten killed off just yet. That leaves at least one of the Starks with the chance of redeeming her family name. Unless, of course, it's in the very finale of Season 7 where Arya meets her final demise. We'll just have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, when it comes to what we can expect from Season 7 as a whole, it only makes sense that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are already approaching the finish line for George R.R. Martin's hit series. With HBO confirming that Game Of Thrones will end after Season 8 — and the last two seasons set to have less episodes than their usual 10-episode run — Season 7 is bought to be one giant lead up to what will probably be the craziest end to a television show thus far. In fact, Kit Harington (Jon Snow) alluded to Season 7's motives in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in saying, "I think it's going to get very dark before it gets better." That only makes Williams' comments even more alarming.
Game Of Thrones Season 7 is set to premiere in the summer of 2017. Prepare yourself for the very worst.
