Hello, Game of Thrones fans, how are y’all holding up? Personally, I am still shocked by the last episode. Or as the Internet likes to say, I’m shooketh. However, if you still haven’t watched the third episode of GoT’s final season, I have two questions for you. First of all, how can you resist? And second of all, what are you doing here? The Intenet is dark and full of spoilers, as is this article.
You’ve been warned…
In all honesty, I believe Arya Stark has been everyone’s favorite character throughout all the seasons. She was put through a lot and she never backed down even one single moment. It just seems right that Arya ends up being the one who stabs the Night King to death.
Although Maisie Williams (who plays Arya Stark) has a huge fandom, her number one fan remains her GoT co-star, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, Arya’s sister. The duo is the best of friends off-screen as well. Sophie took to Instagram to hype up Maisie after her character killed the Night King. In the Instagram Story, Sophie is heard saying, “Arya really is that bitch! Yes, you are, bitch!” As a sprinkle of sass and attitude, Sophie snapped her fingers after each word.

Sophie, we totes agree, girl.
And that’s not even all there is. Williams took to Instagram to share a voice message Turner sent her right after the episode. Sophie is heard saying proudly:
You really motherf*cking are that bitch. You are that bitch. She did that. She did that. That’s right, hunty. That is right, hunty. Check out episode 3 because that bitch did that.
Here’s one reaction to the voice message.

Sophie has shown she’s got Maisie’s back a plethora of times. Just last week, with the whole Arya-Gendry-sex-scene, Sophie did not stay quiet. She took her sweet time to send everyone a heartfelt message, saying:
In honor of Easter, I guess Game of Thrones wanted the storyline to have a little Easter bunny hop-hop-hoppin’ into that pu**y…and that’s the tea.
And a few had quite some funny things to say about it.

However, Maisie said she was quite unsure of how the storyline would unravel with her being the Stark who ends up killing the Night King. I mean, I don’t blame her, the people’s expectations had skyrocketed waiting for episode three. Maisie said:
It was so unbelievably exciting. But I immediately thought that everybody would hate it; that Arya doesn’t deserve it. The hardest thing is in any series is when you build up a villain that’s so impossible to defeat and then you defeat them.
If anyone deserved to kill the Night King, it was Arya. She then continued explaining what she feared most.
It has to be intelligently done because otherwise, people are like, ‘Well, [the villain] couldn’t have been that bad when some 100-pound girl comes in and stabs him.’ You gotta make it cool.
And boy, was it cool. I rewound the screen at least a dozen times before I could let it go.
But for Maisie, things took a turn for the better after she shot the scene with Melisandre. Williams explained:
When we did the whole bit with Melisandre, I realized the whole scene with [the Red Woman] brings it back to everything I’ve been working for over these past 6 seasons —4 if you think about it since [Arya] got to the House of Black and White. It all comes down to this one very moment. It’s also unexpected and that’s what this show does. So then I was like, ‘F*ck you Jon [Snow], I get it.’
Now since no major characters died in the last episode (apologies to Melisandre and Lyanna), we expect to say goodbye to them in the last three episodes, while they will be fighting for the Iron Throne now. R I P. We are used to getting our feelings hurt.
