Does Arya Die in the Second Episode of 'GoT' Season 8? Maisie Williams Drops 'Spoilers' On Jimmy Fallon
Y. I. K. E. S.
Maisie Williams Dropped a Major 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Spoiler & I Can't Breathe
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams stopped by Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show on Apr. 1 to promote the eighth and final season of the HBO television series. And since I'm weak and this is the Game of Thrones, I died, along with the other fools who were left asking if Arya dies in the second episode of Game of Thrones season 8. So did Williams just drop a major Game of Thrones season 8 spoiler? Well, you can let out a sigh of relief... because the spoiler was an April Fool's prank. But, to be honest, I'm still shaking. Are you?
In the segment, all is fine with the world when Williams starts out the interview per usual. She talks about iconic moments that have happened while she played Arya Stark on Game of Thrones.
Then when asked about spoilers regarding the season, Williams let it slip that Arya died in the second episode of the eighth season.
Williams instantly put her hand up to her mouth, clearly shocked. Jimmy is in disbelief and viewers could visibly see Williams shaking as she asked if the show was live and if they could edit her mistake out.
When Jimmy ensures her that the Tonight Show team could, indeed, edit the spoiler out of the show, Jimmy tries to continue the interview as if nothing had happened.
"Let's talk about the final season," Jimmy says, as Williams excuses her stuff and rushed off the stage.
When Jimmy runs off after his guest, it's revealed that it was all a freaking April Fool's joke.
Yeah, thanks for taking years off my life.
While Williams clearly deserves an Oscar for her performance on the night show, fans turned to the internet to give their reactions. And yes, the reactions are hilarious.

I knew it was April 1st, I knew that it had to be a joke, yet @Maisie_Williams nailed the @FallonTonight prank so much she make me second guess myself. Her hands were shaking and she looked close to tears. Holy shit, that woman is a wonderful actress. #AryaStark #GameofThrones— Bailey (@Original_Bay) April 2, 2019
