Game Of Thrones season 8 episode 2 was released earlier today and the internet cannot seem to contain itself from engaging in “hot” discussions over certain scenes. And one intimate sequence, in particular, involving Arya Stark seems to be the main topic of interest among the fandom.
This article contains spoilers Game Of Thrones season 8 episode 2
In the latest episode, Fans who have been waiting to see Arya Stark and Gendry get intimate finally got what they asked for. The audience witnessed Masie Williams engage in her first on-camera sex scene in Game of Thrones after being a part of the show for over 10 years. The actress was just 11 years old when the series started.
As expected, the internet seems to have exploded with search queries related to the sex scene. Fans hilariously seem to have been more concerned over the actress age after witnessing that intimate sequence. You can take a look at it below.
Google Trends shows the drastic increasing change in search results related to Masie Williams age. But it shouldn’t’ come as a surprise since this is the “INTERNET”. Furthermore, most of the fanbase would remember seeing Arya Stark as a child from Season 1 so perhaps the scene must have come as a big surprise.
Speaking to EW, the actress addressed the filming of the sex scene and said that she initially thought it was a prank. but later found out that the showrunners had really included it in the script. But Williams revealed that she was comfortable filming the moment and also supported it saying it humanized her character.
“It was really interesting because it’s a very human relationship for Arya,” Williams said. “This is something she’s stayed away from, an emotion we’ve never really seen her engage with. [Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff] were like, ‘It’s the end of the world, what else would you have her do?’ This may be a moment where Arya accepts death tomorrow, which she never does — ‘Not Today.’ So it was that moment where she says, ‘We’re probably going to die tomorrow, I want to know what this feels like before that happens.’ It’s interesting to see Arya be a bit more human, speak more normally about things people are scared of.”
Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3 preview is available and can be found below.
