‘Game of Thrones’: “Nothing Will Prepare You” For New Season

When winter is coming, you grab a coat. When Game of Thrones is coming, you best grab a helmet, because your MIND IS ABOUT TO BE BLOWN!

That’s if you can believe Arya Stark. Maisie Williams, who plays the once-blind-but-now-can-see tiny assassin, just read the Season Seven scripts and took to her Twitter account with her unbridled elation.

Wait, we SHOULDN’T prepare? Then what should we do?! Maisie, c’mon, you gotta give us some kind of actionable advice.

Co-star Kit Harrington matched her enthusiasm for the HBO series that returns June 2017 in a recent Hollywood Reporter interview. Harrington hasn’t read the scripts yet — “You know nothing, Jon Snow!” — but we’ll trust his guesswork anyway, “I think it’s going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force. So that’s going to be exciting to see… I think with the whole ‘winter is finally here’ business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time.”

Harrington also told The Hollywood Reporter that one of the most riveting scenes from Season Six was inspired by his own greatest fear. He and director, Miguel Sapochnik, were discussing his worst phobias — as coworkers do — and Harrington told the director, “As it happens, one of my greatest fears is a human crush — those horrible stories you hear about stadiums where people literally suffocate to death because they can’t get out of other people panicking. I thought if we could do that in this sequence, that could be really terrifying for the viewer.”
