The ending of the fifth season of Game Of Thrones left pretty much every viewer an emotional wreck. And once again, it has been left to Maisie Williams to perfectly sum up how the audience was feeling regarding the episode’s shocking culmination.
Warning: the following article is going to possess several references to the end of Games Of Thrones‘ fifth season. If you’re yet to watch it, don’t read ahead. It really is as simple as that.
On Sunday night’s final episode of Game Of Thrones’ recent season, entitled “Mother’s Mercy,” we saw the death of Jon Snow. We think. Well, he’s definitely been stabbed several times, even by the loveable Olly, and at the very least he’s in a pretty bad way.
Fans soon took to the internet to showcase their shock, disgust, and genuine emotion as they watched Jon Snow lay in the snow as his own blood gathered around him.
Maisie Williams has always proved that she has the perfect response to Game Of Thrones’ most shocking moments, and this was no different.
After announcing that she would be taking part in a live Twitter Q&A Maisie Williams was asked for her reaction to Jon’s death, and she replied with a splendid tweet.

Maisie Williams’ own character, Arya Stark, had quite a tumultuous time in the episode, too. After killing Ser Meryn Trant, one of the men that Arya has vowed to murder because he’d killed Syrio Forel, Arya was made blind as punishment by Jaqen H’ghar and The Waif.
The potential death of Jon Snow and Arya Stark’s loss of sight was also joined by the beheading of Stannis Baratheon by Brienne of Tarth, while Myrcella Lannister was also shown to collapse and presumably die in the arms of Jamie Lannister, too.
This isn’t the first time that Maisie Williams has had a priceless reaction to a shocking Game Of Thrones incident. Back in 2013, after the tumultuous events of the Red Wedding that resulted in the death of her character’s mother, Catelyn Stark, and brother, Robb Stark, Maisie Williams immediately uploaded the following Vine that soon went viral.
