Leave it to Arya Stark to get Game of Thrones fans all riled up.
In her latest Instagram post, Maisie Williams, who plays headstrong Arya in the HBO show, let fans’ speculations run wild with a picture of bloody tennis shoes as a goodbye to the show (since she presumably just wrapped up filming her scenes for the final season). She captioned the photo “goodbye belfast. goodbye arya. goodbye game of thrones. what a joy i’ve had. here’s to the adventures to come #lastwomanstanding #barely #immasleepforthenextfouryears #justkiddingidontsleep” The photo has garnered 1.3 million likes and nearly 42K comments as of this story’s publishing.
Last woman standing? Does that mean “No One” gets the Iron Throne? Does she outlast all other characters in the impending battle against the Night King and his White Walkers? Sure, it could totally be a false lead (since the show is known for trying to throw fans off their scent to avoid spoiling the ending), but it *could* also be a major clue about season eight.
Guess we only have a year ’til we find out for sure…
