It’s inevitable that all good things must come to an end, and the hugely popular series Game of Thrones is no exception. There will be more tears than the end of season five. No, seriously, I came downstairs crying my eyes out much to the horror/amusement of my children. They don’t get it.

Maisie Williams, who portrays that now tough as nails Arya Stark, isn’t nearly as upset as the rest of us.

In a recent interview with Variety, Williams was upbeat about the show and its ending.

“Good things must come to an end or they’re not good anymore,” she said. “It doesn’t last forever, and we’ve done what we came to do. It’s time to wrap this up, and it will have the ending it was always supposed to have, and that’s very special.”

If you are not up to date with your Thrones, then now is probably a good time to walk away. There’s going to be spoilers from previous seasons.

When we left the epic quest of Arya, she had finally exacted her revenge on Walder Frey for killing her mother and brother in season two at the jaw dropping Red Wedding.

Of the scene, Williams said: “I was so thrilled. Honestly so thrilled.”

She added with a laugh, “Everyone, from all departments, said, ‘You have got the best kill of any kill ever. I don’t think there’s a single person in the world that won’t be thrilled that Walder Frey is gone.’ So it felt very, very good.”

She went on to say: “There’s this one take where we did a close-up and I slit his throat and he’s bleeding out and I got this perfect little speck of blood just above my collarbone on my neck. It wasn’t like Tarantino blood everywhere, just this one little speck, and it happened naturally, it happened realistically, and you literally couldn’t have flicked a bit of blood on better.”

There are only two more seasons in total for the series, which has taken the world by storm. According to some posts on social media, there are people who have yet to start watching the show.

I know right!?!

At the end of season six, we were left with Cersei, the maddest and baddest of them all sitting on the Iron Throne unaware that Daenerys Targaryen is headed over the seas with her Dragons, her Dothraki army and the Ironborn behind her. The Stark clan that seemed all but decimated is making its triumphant return. Although this show being what it is; you know the deal.

Don’t get attached to anyone or get your hopes up.

Season seven will only have seven episodes, and it has been mentioned that season eight will only have six.

You have until around April 2017 to come to terms with that information.
