It should come as no surprise that there are perks associated with staring in a hit TV show of epic proportions like Game of Thrones. Sure the stars of HBO’s fantasy drama could get killed off at any moment, but they also get read the scripts for the show’s upcoming season well ahead of the rest of us mere mortals.
Take Maisie Williams for instance. The 19-year-old actress’s reaction to Thrones’ seventh and penultimate season says it all: “Holy BALLS,” she tweeted yesterday.

“Shit gets REAL,” Williams, who is nominated for an Emmy for her role as Arya Stark, tweeted, “I’d start preparing yourselves now.”
“Scratch that,” she continued, “Nothing will prepare you for this.”
With fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series desperate for new material from the author—the next volume, The Winds of Winter, still doesn’t have a release date—Williams’s tweets are a tantalizing tease at where HBO is taking the show.
Game of Thrones killed off its longest surviving queer character—on Pride Sunday no less!—when Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones) was blown sky high along with his sister Queen Margaery (Natalie Dormer) and most of the rest of the Kings Landing nobles in the season six finale. But with Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) now allied with the Mother of Dragons herself there’s bound to be plenty of dragon-kraken shipping going on as the how speeds toward its eighth and final season.
