The actor who plays Arya Stark in "Game of Thrones" says she was very surprised when she read the script for the third installment of the eighth season of the series.
After viewers & # 39; The Long Night & # 39; or & # 39; The Long Night & # 39; many questions remain.
The fierce battle of Winterfell did not exactly give the outcome that many had expected, and many great fanatics and myths were killed in this episode, writes Vox, who also lists who survived the night.

Maisie Williams also said she was very surprised when she realized it was her character, the young Arya Stark, who would end up being the hero of the fight against the White Hikers and the living dead in Winterfell.
"I thought everyone would hate it, they would think Arya didn't deserve it," she told Entertainment Weekly.

In the episode, it is Arya who saves the seven kingdoms from the villain The night king or the King of the Night, killing them with the same dagger who saved Brans's life in the first season.
For eight seasons we have followed Arya Stark as a child, until she experienced to see more family members brutally murdered and even to train to become a hit man.
Williams thinks it must have been a challenge for the makers of the series and even let the greatest, immortal villain die:
"It has to be done intelligently, otherwise people think:" The bad guy might not have been as bad as a little 45-kilo girl can only stab him, "she says.

In the end, however, the actress came to the conclusion that this was the moment when Arya had worked for six seasons. A peptalk with Melisandre, who returns to Winterfell in this episode, has also contributed, she says.
– Moreover, it is so unexpected and that is what this series does. Then I thought: F *** you Jon, I take it, Williams tells the site.

– I thought it would be me!
Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, says he was just as surprised:
– I thought it would be me! But I like it, it makes sense for all training for Arya that she should have a goal, he says and adds:
– I still think someone's getting frustrated. It is Jon who has been looking for the Night King all the time and you expect this epic battle that will never come, he tells Entertainment Weekly.
Nor is it someone who truly believes that the Night King really died during this battle. The Gamesradar website introduces different theories about the opposite: maybe she killed another? Maybe he wakes up again from death?
They have listed several questions that they hope will be answered by the next three episodes of the series.
In the meantime, be patient with patience. The next episode will be released in a week on Monday.
