Revenge was the main driving force for Maisie Williams’ Arya Stark that kept her going against all odds on Game of Thrones. Her will to survive and the flame of vengeance turned her into one of the most formidable assassins ever in Westeros. Maisie is back with the same burning rage in the new trailer for HBO Max’s dark action-comedy Two Weeks to Live.
Williams, who earlier said her new role was the polar opposite to Arya, is seen raising her kill-count in the trailer. Her character, Kim Stokes is a 20-year-old girl who finds it hard to fit into society after living for a long time in isolation with her mother. Her mother, Tina, played by Sian Clifford, is a paranoid mom who went into hiding after her husband died under murky circumstances.
The story takes a hilarious and action-packed turn when Kim butts her head with her brothers Jay (Taheen Modak) and Nicky (Mawaan Rizwan) in a nearby town. The fun begins when they come across a rumour about the world ending in two weeks. Maisie’s character then ropes in the brother duo in her dangerous quest of exacting revenge on her father’s killers.
Maisie’s new character looks spine-chilling when going for a kill, yet cute when she’s back with her family. Are you excited about the humour-packed thriller? Tell us in the comments below!
Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. Even though the show ended after eight amazing seasons, the books haven’t been completed yet. George R. R. Martin has been really busy writing the books, and also working on the prequel series House of The Dragon. He keeps on updating the fans about his progress on his blog Notablog. Recently, he informed the fans about how he made good use of the quarantine period, writing hundreds of pages for the novel.
He described the work on his book as the only thing other than the US presidential election that was good about 2020. Martin wrote, “I wrote hundreds and hundreds of pages of THE WINDS OF WINTER in 2020. The best year I’ve had on WOW since I began it. Why? I don’t know. Maybe the isolation. Or maybe I just got on a roll. Sometimes I do get on a roll. “
“I need to keep rolling, though. I still have hundreds of more pages to write to bring the novel to a satisfactory conclusion.
That’s what 2021 is for, I hope. I will make no predictions on when I will finish. Every time I do, assholes on the internet take that as a “promise,” and then wait eagerly to crucify me when I miss the deadline. All I will say is that I am hopeful. Meanwhile, guys and gals, please keep yourselves safe and healthy. I will try to do the same.”

The year 2020 may have been a Red Wedding year, but the beginning of 2021 was no less turbulent. The world is struggling to get rid of the pandemic. The US presidential election had its own political drama. Trump supporters flanked all over Washington DC to oppose the newly elected leader, Joe Biden. The riots caused several deaths and loss of property. Rudy Giuliani, the lawyer for former US President Donald Trump, made a comment referencing Game of Thrones ahead of the riots. He recently attempted to explain his statements.
Giuliani addressed the crowd on January 6, before they marched on the Capitol Building, telling them “let’s have trial by combat”. The riots caused the deaths of 5 people.
He explained, “I was referencing the kind of trial that took place for Tyrion in that very famous documentary about fictitious medieval England. When Tyrion, who is a very small man, is accused of murder. He didn’t commit murder, he can’t defend himself, and he hires a champion to defend him.”
The former New York Mayor was unaware that the HBO series is based on the fictional works by George R.R. Martin. Giuliani then attempted to explain he meant a combat ‘between machines‘ and not people.
He added: “It incited no violent response from the crowd. None.”
