Warning: Spoilers ahead.
The second episode of Game of Thrones’ Season 8 reveals tension continues to rise within the Kingdom of Winterfell. In the midst of intense preparation for the war against White Walkers, some characters discovered painful truths while others saw an opportunity to get cozy with one another.
In last night’s episode, youngster Arya Stark decided to take matters into her own hands. With the imminent advent of a gruesome battle ahead, she chose to pop her cherry with long-time friend Gendry. “We’re going to die soon. I’d like to know what it’s like before that happens,” were the ruthless warrior’s exact words before getting it on with the bastard son of late Robert Baratheon.

Indeed, Maisie Williams, who portrays Arya, and actor Joe Dempsie (Gendry) partook in quite the surprise sex scene. After the act, the two were seen naked in bed right before the riveting shot of the white walkers finally arriving at Winterfell. And as expected, social media users saw it and ate it up. As such, it is only fair for us to share the ensuing reactions which were not only hilarious but also entertaining. The public opinion was divided into two schools of thought, one condemning the aforementioned nude scene as ‘weird’ and ‘uncomfortable’ and the other applauding Arya’s bold act.
