star Maisie Williams has just got her hands on the scripts for the show's much-anticipated seventh season - and she promises fans they're in for a wild ride.

• "Sh*t gets REAL."

• "I'd start preparing yourselves now."

• "Scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this."

• "Holy BALLS"

"We're starting a little bit later because, you know, [at] the end of the season 'Winter is here,' and that means sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes anymore. So we kind of pushed everything down the line so we can get some grim grey weather, even in the sunnier places we shoot," Weiss said

It's going to be a long 10 months ...
