If you haven’t seen the latest ep of ‘Game of Thrones’, fair warning, because I can’t really talk about this without spoiling the whole thing.
Anyway, for those that have seen the episode you’re probably familiar with the final scene by now. You’ve played it over in your head countless times: Arya appears out of nowhere, flying through the sky to apparently kill the Night King, but she’s caught.
But then she drops the knife to her other hand and rips that spiky crowned dickhead back to Hell.
That’s right you ice bitch, you’re dead. So is your gross ass stolen ice dragon, and all of your undead friends exploded, too.
It was a wild scene that mimicked a skill Arya had picked up and used earlier in the series.
Here’s Maisie Williams (Arya) practicing for a scene where she does something similar while fighting with Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie).

A lot has been written about the moment, but now people are focusing more on re-enacting it themselves in what’s being called the Arya Challenge.

Here’s just a few people trying their best to, uh… move something from one hand to another.

Let’s not get into how much more difficult this would probably be while Death itself holds you above the ground by your neck.

FWIW, if you try this at home please don’t use a real knife.
