Once she was blind, but now she sees

Maisie Williams, who plays headstrong tomboy-turned-badass assassin Arya Stark on Game Of Thrones, spent a good chunk last season wearing milky-white contacts as she endured the “humbling physical disability that also just so happens to sharpen your other senses” portion of her character’s training. But now Arya is past all of that, and the scales have been lifted from Williams’ eyes as well.

She’s seen some things, man. Things you wouldn’t believe. Specifically, she’s seen the scripts for Game Of Thrones season seven, and she’s quite confident that next season’s storyline is going to blow your dick (or whatever genitalia you happen to possess) clean off:

Williams’ comments echo those of her co-star Kit Harington, who told The Hollywood Reporter earlier today that the show was going to “get very bleak before if there is a happy ending.” Harington was a bit more specific in his comments, citing the White Walkers and their army of undead soldiers as potential players in the wars to come. But it takes no great insight to make that observation, and besides, he didn’t say ”holy balls.” Typical boring Jon Snow.
