Maisie Williams dishes about you-know-who's 'Game of Thrones' fate

During a radio interview, the "Game of Thrones" actress who plays Arya Stark definitively answers the question of whether a certain prominent character is coming back for season 6. Spoilers ahead.


Warning: Spoilers gather, and your watch begins. Only watch the video above and read the article below if you've seen all 50 episodes of "Game of Thrones."

Say it ain't so, Maisie.

Actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the hit HBO fantasy series "Game of Thrones," just stuck the pointy end of Needle into the idea that Jon Snow is coming back to life on the show.

"Yeah, he's dead," Williams said in an interview with Christian O'Connell on the UK's Absolute Radio Friday. And when O'Connell said she must be lying about Snow's fate, Williams added, "I'm not a liar! I'm very sorry, but I would know of all people. After all, I'm the one who has the script."

Of course, Williams could just be saying that because she has to -- showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff could be making sure Snow's resurrection stays as much of a secret as possible, advising the cast to say he's dead if they're asked. Only Williams, "A Song of Ice and Fire" author George R.R. Martin and the rest of the cast and crew of "Game of Thrones" know for sure.

So, OK, maybe Jon Snow is dead, but is Jon Stark? Actor Kit Harington, who plays Snow, has repeatedly been seen filming in Belfast, and just last week was spotted and photographed on-set wearing Stark clothing, so we're still holding out hope for a triumphant return of the Former Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.

Viewers were traumatized when Jon Snow was brutally and repeatedly stabbed by his so-called brothers of the Night's Watch and left for dead at the end of season 5. Perhaps fortunately for Snow, Melisandre conveniently returned to The Wall that day, and the god she worships, the Lord of Light, has been known to bring people back to life in the past.

We definitely aren't ready to accept that he's only there shooting flashback scenes, but we'll know whether or not we're right when "Game of Thrones" returns to HBO in the spring of 2016.
