News and rumors regarding the “Game of Thrones” final season continue to trickle out, thanks to actors on the show. As each cast member finishes playing the character that made them icons in the eyes of many, we’re seeing various tributes that are equal parts cryptic and commemorative. We had Emilia Clarke’s Khal Drogo-filled goodbyes, Lena Headey teasing the story’s ending, and Maisie Williams posting bloody sneakers.
Fans have combed through every single word, trying to decipher any meaning to the series finale. And now, one more nugget to dissect, thanks once again to Maisie Williams. As a token of her portrayal as the princess-turned-assassin Arya Stark, the actress revealed the item she plucked from the set.
During Wednesday’s appearance on BBC Radio 1’s The Radio1 Breakfast Show, Williams said she took Arya’s memorable brown jacket. “I can imagine it being something that I’m like,‘Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore. And my grandkids being like, ‘Please stop.’”
I’m on the @R1Breakfast 🧡💗

The jacket’s design and color calls to mind the rest of the Stark clan as well, as we’ve seen Jon Snow and Robb Stark wearing similar-looking outerwear. The brown jacket only became part of Arya’s outfit when she returned to Westeros, following her training with the Faceless Men.
