Maisie! You may have had us for a second there.
There’s speculation galore making the rounds as Game of Thrones‘ final season fast approaches. Who will die? Who will end up on the iron throne? Well, if you were watching as this particular episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon aired, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you had just found out one hell of a plot point thanks to actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the hugely popular HBO series.
First of all, the video below does actually contain spoilers for previous seasons of GoT, so be aware of that if you’re not up to date.
“This is the final season. Everyone has been waiting. Can you tell me anything?” Fallon asked. “You couldn’t give one little spoiler, one little hint? Just a crumb is all I’m asking.” She drops not so much a crumb as a massive loaf of a spoiler in everyone’s laps. The crowd amusingly reacts with a mix of laughter and gasps, and both Williams and Fallon play it out wonderfully.
Game of Thrones season 8 begins on April 14. By the way, we’ve included each episode’s runtime below as well.
