So after our heartbeats have finally regained normal rhythm following a very Long Night with Episode 3, we see our group of fan favorites take stock, mourn their dead, and rejoice following the final battle with the un-dead. Drinking heavily, and enjoying some well earned comforts, audiences see their characters interact, rest and enjoy, and also engage in some sexy time it seems. However this weeks Episode 4, The Last of the Starks, has left audiences with a lot of questions, and also surprisingly, a really bad taste in a lot of fans mouths.

Last time we saw Maisie Williams, we were reporting her involvement in Sam Raimi’s video game adaptation The Last Of Us on our sparkling new Google+ page. Good to see that she’s not suffering from typecasting, and jobs outside of playing Arya Stark are knocking on her Moon Door. But no matter what she’s doing or what she says, it all goes back to Game Of Thrones with her. Whether it’s posting her Cinnamon Challenge failures on YouTube or infiltrating San Diego Comic Con in a Spiderman mask, she’ll always be Arya to fans of George R. R. Martin’s ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’ HBO series adaptation. However, supporters of the novels have been very opinionated lately about creative licenses taken by the hit television show. And the always chatty 17 year-old actress was recently pretty vocal about them. (more…)
