Thanks to George R.R. Martin, nobody’s really sure how Game of Thrones will end. But even the cast likes to speculate. Maisie Williams opened up about her fantasy ending of the show, and it seems like she put a lot of thought into it. Playing the role of Arya Stark, she’s definitely a good person to ask.
The seventh season of Game of Thrones started up last night, and it only proved how powerful Arya Stark truly is. In fact, rewatching the show from season one, it’s obvious that she’s transformed like no other.
“I’ve always had this fantasy in the back of my head — I don’t think it’s a good ending and fans might not like it — but that somebody would sit on the Iron Throne at the end and then they whip their face off and it’s Arya instead,” she revealed to the site. “I’ve always had that dream.”
Based on what we saw during the seventh season premiere, we don’t think it’s too outlandish. But as fans, we’d be pretty satisfied with that ending. After all, we’ve seen Arya face so many obstacles in her young life.
We’re hoping the writers at least consider Williams’ ideal show-closer. At this stage, anything can happen.
