Actor Maisie Williams speaks onstage at “Featured Session: Game of Thrones” during 2017 SXSW Conference and Festivals at Austin Convention Center on March 12, 2017 in Austin, Texas. That’s just what it does.
With still most of the people left in her kill list, there’s still great reason to think that Arya will make it through this season as she slices her way through society in search of revenge… and her siblings. But as far as where that goes or takes them or how dark it can get, we’ll see.
TV Guide went out to Madison Square Park in New York City to ask fans who they think will/who they want to meet their demise in the upcoming seven episodes.
“Game of Thrones” returns this Sunday night for the highly anticipated seventh season. They might not be thrilled to see each other, but we would be. She says she will be “an emotional wreck for a year”. “It’s really interesting to see her like that, because the past few seasons, she’s been so strong”, Turner said.
During the season 6 finale “The Winds of Winter”, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) claimed the Iron Throne after blowing up her enemies (most of the King’s Landing-based characters) with wildfire resulting in her last son, King Tommen Baratheon (Dean-Charles Chapman) committing suicide.
“Game of Thrones” fans aren’t the only ones reeling over the show’s impending end. “At the beginning of this season, she’s finally acquired that power and respect from John, but not the power that she really feels that she deserves”, Sophie Turner told Variety. “She’s always been into him, but he’s starting to like her more and more”. Harington told USA Today of her enjoying Ramsay’s death: “That’s who Sansa is going to be in the future”. Sansa does find a friend in Margaery and briefly is courted by her grandmother, the cunning Olenna Tyrell aka the “Queen of Thorns”, who Sansa is fearless enough to admit Joffrey, Margaery’s future husband, is “a monster”. I was part of a theater company … and I probably played it a million times with friends on stage.
Now that she’s became a leader, she has Winterfell, she has her home, she has her brother. “It gets past sibling squabbling, it gets into two people power struggling”. “This season is about trust and loyalty”, she said. “I’m happier than I’ve been in a very long time“. She has her own things to deal with this season, too. But, if we’re being honest, we’ve got a soft spot for Sophie as a redhead, because #GoT.
Perhaps most important of all: does it really matter if she’s likable or not?
