Season six of Game of Thrones was arguably one of the show鈥檚 best yet. We won鈥檛 give away too many spoilers, but we will say it was a season full of some epic battles and a solid dose of story progression. Which makes sense, considering season seven will be the second-to-last season (do like we do, and just don鈥檛 think about that fact for too long). Although it鈥檚 not set to air until next year, the cast appears to be starting production. A few days ago, Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) posted some shocked tweets after she read the script. In addition to a few other comments, she wrote, 鈥淣othing will prepare you for this.鈥 TELL US MORE.

Now, the freshly alive Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) has made some comments about what we can expect from the forthcoming season, as well. However, in classic Jon Snow fashion, his update was slightly more somber. He tells the Hollywood Reporter, 鈥淚 think it鈥檚 going to get very bleak before if there is a happy ending [鈥 if there鈥檚 any sort of win or heroic moment for Jon and everyone else. I think it鈥檚 going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force. So that鈥檚 going to be exciting to see. I don鈥檛 know what it means. I think with the whole 鈥榳inter is finally here鈥 business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time.鈥

We weren鈥檛 exactly expecting a season of hand-holding and frolicking in sunny meadows from the show that鈥檚 been known to rip out our hearts and stomp them on the ground repeatedly, but now we鈥檙e extra nervous. Guess a season of GOT without some seriously depressing plot twists wouldn鈥檛 really be a season of GOT though, would it?
