'Game of Thrones' season 4 spoilers: Maisie Williams talks Arya Stark

When the third season ended, Arya Stark is still traveling with The Hound and has killed her first man after using the coin given to her by Jaqen H'ghar. Arya spent the first two seasons growing up at Winterfell learning to use weapons and wanting to not be a lady. With season three she used her wit to figure out what she really wants in life and who to go after it.

Williams talked about the "darker side" of Arya that will be explored this season which is "scarier" than she has been in the past. Williams described the character as "more of a challenge" since Arya has gotten a taste for blood and reuniting with her family seems to be a distant memory.

Williams says Arya will be "more powerful" and people may not like the direction of the character. As a girl, Arya was never taken seriously and she wanted to be, and now she has a coin that allows her to change her face after she exacts the revenge she wants.

"Game of Thrones" will return with a ten episode fourth season on Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m. on HBO. There will be major events from the books sprinkled throughout each episode and the season finale will not feature a cliffhanger or big shock. New characters introduced for during the new season include The Red Viper, Ellaria Sand, Mace Tyrell, and Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris.
