The second episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 titled Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is finally out this week. This episode has already gained much attention on social media for various reasons. But this time, the episode caught attention for one of its sex scenes. Well, steamy scenes are no surprise for GoT lovers but a scene which features Arya Stark is obviously a thunderbolt which nobody expected.
The sex scene between Arya Stark Arya and Gendry (Joe Dempsie) is one of the most unexpected scene which has made fans ‘uncomfortable’.
After the second episode dropped this week and reactions poured in social media, Maisie Williams finally broke her silence on the steamy scene.
The 22-year-old actress subliminally responded to criticism that the intimate moment between Arya and Gendry was “uncomfortable” to watch, as some viewers were concerned about her age.

“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)” the actor tweeted.
