After last weekend's shocking Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones, fans of the books and the TV series alike are preparing themselves to venture into unknown territory. This season marked the point where the show has caught up to the five books that George R.R. Martin has written so far, and, since we don't know when the last two books will be published, Season 6 will explore completely uncharted territory. As unsettling as this prospect may be for fans, it's even worse for some of the stars, with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner discussing the new season in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. There will be SPOILERS if you haven't caught up with Game of Thrones Season 5 yet, so read on at your own risk.
In the Season 5 finale, Maisie Williams' Arya was blinded by Jaquen H'gar (Tom Wlaschiha) as punishment for killing Meryn Trant (Ian Beattie), which was not authorized by the Many-Faced God. When asked about what she thinks will happen to Arya in Season 6, Maisie Williams had this to say.
"I don't want to wear these crazy contacts for the rest of my time on Thrones! I don't know how ... that will impede her life. She's going to become very vulnerable thanks to that. It's exciting and scary. So I'm worried about next year. [Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] treated me to a pizza and I just sat there asking questions and they won't answer anything. It's heartbreaking, it's petrifying."
"Everybody's curious [about their fate]. Some actors don't want to know. Some want to know everything. If the character knows they're going to die at a certain time, we don't want them playing like that's going to be their fate."
Sophie Turner, who plays Arya's sister Sansa, revealed that she doesn't want to know her fate, but that hasn't stopped her from speculating about what will happen on her new journey with Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), as she offers up her own predictions.
"I don't want to know, but Alfie and I have been talking about it a lot. We reckon Theon and Sansa will get away, but then Sansa will sell Theon out and be like, 'Screw you,' and go out on her own. Or Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) will come and chase them down. But I don't think the two of them will stay together as buddies, though that would be kind of cool."
Both Sansa and Theon were last seen leaping from the high Winterfell wall, which is so high up that it wouldn't be surprising if at least one of the characters is badly injured from this fall. After all, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) lost the use of his legs after falling from a similar height, but, then again, Sansa and Theon jumped together, and were not pushed off. Regardless, we now have to wait 10 more months, or so, to see what happens in Westeros next. What are your theories regarding Season 6 of Game of Thrones?
