And HBO has been incredibly tight-lipped about what you can expect in the final season.
Which makes it so surprising that one of the show’s biggest stars…
May have just let slip one of the show’s biggest secrets.

According to People.com, Maisie Williams appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Monday night.
And of course, Fallon asked her the most pressing question:
What is one thing that happens in the final season?
Williams waffled a bit, explaining:
“I have decided to just keep a tight lip on everything — HBO have sent out a lot of memos recently about just saying nothing… So there’s really nothing that I could say, they would absolutely kill me.”
When Fallon pressed her, Williams started sharing a story about her final day of shooting.
Which is when she dropped a MAJOR spoiler for her character.
“During shooting, the final days were really emotional — saying goodbye to all the cast. Because when I found out that Arya died in like, the second episode —”
That’s when she cut off, asked if Fallon could edit that out, and ran off stage in terror.
Fallon followed after.
Then the unthinkable happened:
Both Jimmy and Maisie jumped out on stage and shouted…
Phew. I about had a major heart attack for a minute.
Arya Stark has been a HUGE part of the show’s story since it first premiered in 2011.
And while the show hasn’t had any issues with killing off a major character…
It might actually cause a riot if everyone’s favorite character since season 1 died off in episode 2!
