Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones showed how every character in Winterfell spent the night before next week’s battle against the White Walkers — and Arya Stark certainly blew off some steam.
Arya (played by Maisie Williams, 22) lost her virginity to longtime crush Gendry after he forged her custom dragonglass weapon. Take about foreplay.
Demanding to know if he’d slept with the Red Woman, she asked for details of his sexual history since they’d parted ways as children in season 3.
“We’re going to die soon. I’d like to know what it’ like before that happens,” she said bluntly before grabbing his face and kissing him.
Later, the camera panned to them lying in bed together as the dead arrived.
It’s a pairing fans have been rooting for for years, especially given how their union would unite the Stark and Baratheon houses as their fathers had once hoped: Gendry is the bastard of late King Robert. Some people were shocked to see Arya (who they’ve watched grow up) strip down on-screen. Of course, that’s part of life, and it was super emporwering to see this bad-ass character embracing her sexuality before (hopefully) saving the world.
