The countdown to the final season of Game of Thrones has already begun, and star Maisie Williams is giving is a clue as to what to expect.

Arya Stark has undergone massive character development — starting off as Ned and Catelyn’s youngest daughter and growing into an assassin with many faces.

Now the 21-year-old is going back to her roots on season one. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Maisie said, “After reading the scripts I went back and watched Season 1 again because so much of it refers back to that season. There are so many scenes that will look similar.”

So what’s ahead for little Miss Stark?

“Basically this year it’s like she has a dual personality — there are so many emotions and memories that come flooding back when you’re with your family and the things that you fight for become very different, yet she’s also remaining on this path to try and kill Cersei and remembering her list and getting closer to that. So there’s this split with Arya between trying to be who she wants to be — getting back to the naïveté and innocence with her family — and unfinished business.”

Arya will attempt to finish business when season 8 of Game of Thrones starts on 14 April.
