One of the biggest highlights of episode 2 of Game Of Thrones Season 8 was the sex scene between Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams and Gendry. It garnered mixed reactions from fans, where some applauded the scene, while others condemned it, saying it was uncomfortable to see Arya (who was always seen as a kid) indulging in such bold scenes.
And now, Maisie has reacted to these reactions by pointing out that if there is anyone who should be feeling uncomfortable about the sex scene; it should be her as her entire family has seen the episode.
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— Maisie Williams (@Maisie_Williams) April 23, 2019
Maisie took to Twitter and wrote, “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 (sic)"
Here are some of the user comments:
"When you've been waiting for Gendry and Arya to get together for 4 seasons and it finally happens, but then they start getting naked..." a user tweeted.
"Ok, I didn't like the Arya sex scene in the newest episode of Game of Throne, and not only because it was awkward to see the person that was once a child for so long naked, but anyway the rest of the episode was a pretty solid 8.5/10, I'm kinda hopeful for the rest of this season," another wrote.
On the other hand, HBO had put out a disclaimer on their official Twitter account by clarifying Arya's age before airing the episode. HBO confirmed the age of Arya (played by Maisie Williams) as 18-year-old. Looks like the channel already smelled the controversy coming their way.
