"Game of Thrones" Season 6 is getting closer towards the finale, which means it is officially the time to start fearing for some of your favourite characters. On top of this list seems to be Arya (Maisie Williams), who barely escaped death in the previously aired Season 6 episode 7 "The Broken."

From the title "No One" and the official synopsis, it is clear that Arya will be pivotal to the upcoming episode 8. It is understood that she will face a new test in "No One," whether this test will have an effect on her decision to leave Braavos. Some fans also fear that the showrunners may have only dragged Arya's death from the previous episode for sadistic pleasure.

Meanwhile, her sister Sansa (Sophie Turner) is gathering an army with their brother Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) to fight a war against Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) and save their younger brother Rickon (Art Parkinson). In the upcoming episode we will see Sansa's knight Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) reuniting with her old friend Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

Unfortunately, they are on opposing sides, reminiscent of the first time they met. In the promo for the upcoming "No One," Brienne is heard telling Jaime: "Should I fail to get the Blackfish [aka Brynden Tully, Sansa and Arya's great uncle] to surrender and you attack the castle, honor compels me to fight you."

While Brienne is bound by her honour, Jaime is bound by his love for Cersei (Lena Headey). He is heard saying that if he has to kill every single Tully to get back with her, then that is exactly what he would do.

Cersei, on the other hand, is preparing for a war against the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). She believes that she alone is alone in the need to destroy the religious militant, but unbeknownst to her, Margaery (Natalie Dormer) is planning something to get rid of him.
