Hate and rage keep Arya going in Game of Thrones: Maisie Williams

In the last episode, Arya decides to disobey Jaqen H’Ghar’s orders and spare the life of Lady Crane. She understands that there will be no second chance so she goes back to the place she hid her sword, as if preparing to fight the Waif or H’Ghar himself.

Maisie Williams, who plays the fiery Arya Stark on hit HBO show Game of Thrones, says the only thing that keeps her character going is her death list and “hate inside her”.

In the last episode, Arya decides to disobey Jaqen H’Ghar’s orders and spare the life of Lady Crane. She understands that there will be no second chance so she goes back to the place she hid her sword, as if preparing to fight the Waif or H’Ghar himself.

“She has come so far and the only thing that has been keeping her going is this list and this hate inside her and this rage. Now this guy (Jaqen H’Ghar) is asking her to just drop it all,” Williams said in a statement.

“That’s really, really tough but she knows that this is important and she knows that becoming a Faceless Man is what is going to make her a serious contender and give her a future. She finds it so intriguing, which is why she doesn’t run away. She disobeys but she never leaves,” she added.

In the series, Jaqen is shown as a hard taskmaster who doesn’t believe in giving second chances, and Arya seems to be aware of that.

“He basically says the last time you misbehaved you were made blind, this time you’ll be dead and so Arya is like, ‘Okay, best behaviour’,” Williams said. But now we know, Arya didn’t really follow through it.
