With only three weeks ’til Game of Thrones season eight premieres on HBO, all hopes of rewatching the entire series in preparation have gone out the window. (Curse you, Russian Doll!)
But one season you may just have to watch in order to know what the hell is going on in the final season? Maisie Williams, aka Arya Stark, said returning to where it all began is going to save you tons of time Googling after each episode on Sunday night.
In order to prep for the big day on April 14, Williams told Entertainment Weekly she had to watch the first season over again. (So booking ten hours of straight binge-watching this weekend is actually a must…)
“After reading the scripts I went back and watched season one again because so much of it refers back to that season,” the 21-year-old said. “There are so many scenes that will look similar. And also I watched just to remind myself of the arc I’ve taken already. I wanted Arya to go full circle and try for some kind of normalcy like when she was younger.”
