GoT fans freak out over Arya and Gendry
THERE was a stand-out moment in today's new episode of Game of Thrones, which some fans have labelled another 'filler' ahead of the highly-anticipated Battle of Winterfell, that has fans in a spin.
*Warning this story contains spoilers for episode two of season eight*.
In last week's season premiere, Arya Stark and Gendry were reunited for the first time since season three.
Back then she was just a girl, but now the youngest surviving Stark is all grown up and fans picked up on the sexual tension between her and Gendry in the forge of Winterfell - where he's been busy making dragon glass and Valyrian steel weapons for the fight against the Night King and his army of the undead.
Today's episode confirmed viewers were not imagining things, with the looming battle against the Night King inspiring all of the people at Winterfell to consider their final arrangements.
After telling Gendry to get a move on with her dragon glass weapon, Arya grills him on how many women he's been with.
When he finally admits the number - three - and the fact that he's Robert Baratheon's bastard, Arya tells him "we're probably going to die soon, I want to know what it's like before that happens".
Their hook-up is a major talking point on social media, with fans revealing mixed feelings about a character they've seen grow up on their screens over the past decade.
Wonderful seeing a beautiful young girl turn into a strong beautiful woman. That scene was all about Arya remembering her humanity and becoming an even stronger woman than she was before. Way to go @Maisie_Williams . #GameofThrones https://t.co/vOvuK2OC3s— Deena 🥂🎉🐈🎆 (@deena7202) April 22, 2019
