The season 6 premiere of Game of Thrones was
probably the most highly anticipated night of television all year. Since last summer, we’ve been dying to know if Jon Snow is really dead, or if Arya will get her sight back, or what’s going to happen to Daenerys at the hands of the Dothraki? The premiere had a few really great moments (Brienne!), but mostly served to set up the coming season.
The other day, actress Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) played a brilliant prank on some Los Angeles locals by offering free swag to Game of Thrones fans at a local gaming store. For the premiere, Williams was still in L.A., so she decided that she wanted to find a local party rather than sit in her hotel room and pay extra for HBO. Smart girl. What did she do? She sent out the following tweet:

Shortly after, she sent another tweet claiming that a “team” would be sending goodie bags to a lucky party. Technically, this was true. But what the party goers didn’t know was that Williams was a part of said team and would be dropping off the goodies personally… and sticking around to watch the episode. And to eat cookies. Always stick around for the cookies. So how did it play out? Lucky for us, Williams decided to document her evening on Instagram:

(10/12) I went there to surprise them with snacks, but when I got there, I found myself trying one of every single snack they had made. A photo posted by @maisie_williams on
(11/12) They were catching up on the last episode of Season 5 when I went in, and we all giggled nervously as we took pictures during the famous “shame” scene. I had the most amazing time, everyone was so welcoming and excited… Thanks to Mark, Kate and company for having us in your lovely flat. Enjoy the rest of Season 6.
