This article contains major spoilers for Game of Thrones season 8 episode 2
It appears that the 'Game of Thrones' creators are in the mood to earn some serious brownie points in the area of fan service. After uniting Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen last season and leaving fans with their hearts exploding like Oberyn Martell's head, they've now united a popular ship from one of the initial seasons of 'GoT' - Arya Stark and Robert Baratheon's bastard Gendry. The two were reunited in the last episode after their own tumultuous personal journeys and they obviously couldn't be happier that they met. The two separated all the way back when Arya wasn't a killing machine and had bandaged her breasts to pass off as a boy (honestly, that feels way too long ago). The two seemed to have a little bit of a thing going on back then but it sort of developed over the years but honestly, nothing could have prepared fans for the way things went down in Winterfell this episode.
With the war coming closer and everyone pretty much convinced that they are going to die, Arya decided she wants to taste the sweet pleasures of life before she hits the ground. She, without hesitation, lands up next to Gendry. He, unknowing to the whole thing, comes to meet her in the wee hours of the night to give her the super lethal dragonglass weapon. The two talk and Arya asks the most uncomfortable question - how many women have you done it with? Taken aback, Gendry mumbles, like literally any person in that situation ever, but finally gives up the number. Arya would have probably killed him if he hadn't. The two totally get it on after that next to the fires and death looming all around and just like that, Arya goes from little boy to Lady Stark to Gendry.
And obviously, the internet had some thoughts. "Ol lil Arya dome grew up n got it in today... What a historic day," wrote one user while another chimed in, reminding us that this was the calm before the storm, "Everything is so calm right now. everyone is drinking wine. arya is having sex. this is just preparing us for the heartbreak we are about to have "
