The whole world, or at least the legion of die-hard Game of Thrones fans, is currently in a tizzy over the latest GoT Season 8 episode ‘coz your girl Arya Stark (played by queen Maisie Williams) has S-E-X.
Yep, turns out Arya and old mate Gendry do the dirty in the new ep and Twitter has had ~mixed~ responses over how it all went down.

Following all the shaken reactions from fans, the IRL Arya Stark, Maisie Williams, took to social media to put things into perspective for GoT viewers, reminding them that while it may have been uncomfortable for them to watch, it was a helluva lot more uncomfortable for certain other folks who tuned in.
“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,” she tweeted.

The girl raises a fair point. If I was a Williams family member, I certainly wouldn’t be tuning in to this season.
