WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, SOPHIE?! WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THE STARKS?!

As the final season of Game Of Thrones edges closer and closer to our screens, it's becoming more and more difficult to for everyone to contain their excitement. Theories are flying, HUGE set spoilers are floating around the internet and the cast of the show are slowly coming to terms with the fact that they're gonna have to say goodbye to their beloved alter-egos.

To commemorate their time on the show, quite a few of the Game Of Thrones cast members have spoken about getting tattoos. Emilia Clarke has already spilled the tea on her upcoming dragon wrist tattoo that she's booked in for when she completes filming and now, Sophie Turner has unveiled her brand new ink... and people seem to think it's a little bit of a spoiler for what happens in the upcoming final season. 👀

The text underneath the Stark house sigil reads: "The pack survives," which is the last line in a quote from Ned Stark in George RR Martin's book series. The full quote reads: "When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives,"

The quote popped up in the last season of the show too. Just after Arya and Sansa sentence Littlefinger to his death, they stand overlooking Winterfell and Sansa quotes her father's words to her sister.

At first glance, fans immediately took the tattoo to be some kind of hint or spoiler about what happens to the remaining Stark children in the final season. "The pack survives" certainly sounds like a hint that the Sansa, Arya and Bran - and maybe Jon if you still wanna include him - manage to make it to the end of the show without dying and live on to honour their family name as the Lords and Ladies of Winterfell. That's a BIG spoiler, right?

Or, you know, it could just be a sentimental tribute to her house. The show may be over and these characters may be "gone" but the pack will survive in our hearts, right? RIGHT?

What do you think? Is it a cheeky hint at the fates of the remaining Stark children? Or are we all just reading too much into it? Either way, I'm emotional about it already.
