MANILA, Philippines — Fans of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” fans were shocked after Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) had a steamy scene with Gendry Baratheon (Joe Dempsie).  

Social media erupted with discussions about the scene, with netizens saying they were not prepared for the young lady assassin having a love scene with her friend. 



Maisie took to Twitter to address reactions from fans. 

“If u feel uncomfortable just know that my mother and my step dad and my 2 sisters and my 4 brothers have all probably watched this too ahahakillmeehehe,” Maisie wrote. 

Arya and Gendry have been friends since the earlier parts of the series. The two characters slept together before the Night King and his army of dead attack Winterfell. 

“I want to know what it feels like before I die,” Arya told Gendry before doing the deed. 

Maisie’s age was reportedly one of the most searched keywords in Google after the episode was released. 

Arya’s character is already 18 years old while Maisie is 22 years old. 

Sophie Turner, who plays Arya’s sister Sansa Stark in the series, took to Instagram to troll her friend about the scene. She posted a video of herself sipping wine. 

“In honor of Easter, I guess ‘Game of Thrones’ wanted to have a little storyline of a little Easter bunny hop, hop, hoppin’ into that pussaayyyyyy,” Sophie said about the video.
