It was the deflowering event heard around the world. On last Sunday’s Game of Thrones episode, with the possible end of humanity around the corner, Arya Stark decided she didn’t want to die a virgin and jumped the bones of the blacksmith boy Gendry. The reaction was mixed.
On one hand, some thought the scene was totally unnecessary. On the other, it was the most sex-positive coitus on the show and a great character evolution for Arya. But Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, reminded everyone that there was another group of people who squirmed even more than you did watching that scene.
That would be Maisie Williams’ family, who got to watch their little girl get it on.
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

The best reaction by anyone watching that scene, however, was via Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the show. On her Instagram stories, Turner posted a video in a bath robe while swishing a glass of red wine. Then she said, ““In honor of Easter, I guess Game of Thrones wanted the storyline to have a little Easter bunny hop-hop-hopping into that pussaaaaaayy.”
