That Arya Scene Has People Freaking Out

Game of Thrones

7 talking points from Game of Thrones S8E01

Joe Dempsie has spoken about how his scenes with Maisie Williams made him feel.

One point of contention was the perceived age difference between the couple.

"We're going to die soon". Earlier in the episode, we saw Dany attempt to smooth over her differences with Sansa only to raise her hackles when Sansa suggested that the North would never bow to a southern ruler again. "So I just read that and it was practically all I knew about the entire season".

"I'm acting alongside a child here". At the same time, I don't want to be patronizing toward Maisie - she's a 20-year-old woman. "The dead are already here", Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) grimly notes.

Easter Monday has been fantastic for Australian Game Of Thrones fans, with many of us able to watch the latest episode straight away instead of spending the day hiding from spoilers.

In the lead up to the scene, Arya is sat on the walls of Winterfell with The Hound and Beric Dondarrion. He confessed his true parentage and name to her, and she understood immediately that would make him the last male heir to the throne.

"I called Maisie and was like: 'Have you read it yet?' And she's like, 'I'm midway through episode one.' And I'm like: 'This scene, this page, read it!"

Not all of the viewers were happy with the scene, however. With seven years having passed between the beginning of the show and season 7, it's estimated that Arya is about 18 onscreen (actress Maisie Williams is 22).

Once she realized the scene was legit, Williams told EW her first reaction was "When do I shoot this?" Show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are notorious for pulling fast ones, too, so we can understand her disbelief.

Lyra McKee: friends stage protest outside offices of Saoradh
The group - who call themselves Saoradh - marched down O'Connell Street for a so-called "Unfinished Revolution" event. Vigils have been held across Northern Ireland and people have paid tributes to her by signing books of condolence.


In an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine, she said: "She has given me a huge amount of confidence".

"I was like, 'Yo, good one.' And [the showrunners were] like, 'No, we haven't done that this year.' Oh f-k!" she said.

Apparently, some people didn't buy the relationship, or didn't like what Arya did, though I can't tell if that is real backlash or imaginary backlash. "This beat isn't really about that", she explained.

Apart from the titular characters and their confusion stemming from who should be in power and their love/lust for each other, we also see Arya finally getting it on with her long-time love interest Gendry.

A curious Samwell asked Bran why would the Night King want to do that and that's when Bran revealed that the Night King wanted an "endless night", and that he wanted to erase the world and the Three-Eyed Raven served as its memory.

On the one hand, it was powerful and encouraging to see Arya take change over her sexuality in such a way.
