“Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams is ready for the eighth and final season of HBO’s hugely popular show.

“There is a lot of death this year,” Williams, who stars as Arya Stark in the series, recently told Entertainment Weekly, adding of the last season apparently makes so many references to the first that the 21-year-old decided to rewatch the original season for themselves.

“After reading the scripts, I went back and watched season 1 again because so much of it refers back to the season. There are so many scenes that will seem. And I also saw only to remind myself of the arc, I’ve already taken. I wanted Arya to go full circle and tries to some kind of normality as it was when she was younger,” she told the publication.

Williams also noted that she and actress Sophie Turner character — Sansa Stark, Arya’s sister in the series, have a closer relationship in the coming season in comparison with past years.

“It’s not often you see a character along with the Sansa that is not manipulating her,” she said, pointing to her real-life friendship with Turner, there was “no acting required” in some of their scenes together.

“People don’t want it to end. No matter how you end, people don’t want to end. So the end is not good, because “the end” is not okay. You know what I mean? I think the way we do it is good. And I think that it is time.”

The actress also revealed she filmed her “first big battle sequence” in the upcoming season and noticed it was her “first introduction” of “being part of the episodes that really define us.”

And, referring to the show’s end, Williams also shared her thoughts.

“People don’t want it to end. No matter how you end, people don’t want to end. So the end is not good, because “the end” is not okay. You know what I mean? I think the way we do it is good. And I think it’s time,” she said.
