Maisie Williams discusses relationship between the Stark sisters

The growing tension between the Stark sisters in the last season of Game of Thrones had made many fans believe that either of them will die. It wasn’t until the last episode – ‘the Dragon and the Wolf’, where we saw the trial of Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish by Sansa Stark for his treasons against her family.

The last scene which had the duo discuss their pasts and reminiscing their father – Eddard Stark’s words, clarified that they had settled their differences and gave us a wishful thinking of the pack surviving in the final season. In a recent interview with the Elle Magazine, Maisie Williams – the actress who plays Arya Stark talked about the relationship her character shares with her sister. She said:

“I think until last season Arya was always killing the baddies. But then we saw her start to use those manipulative powers…It’s not until she had that whole dialogue with her sister Sansa in the last season that you realize what she’s become, that she’s being awful to someone who we love.”

Game of Thrones is a TV series which has many themes and characters but also shown women empowerment through various strong leaders like Brienne, Cersei, Margaery, Daenerys, Lyanna Mormont, and many more. Maisie went on to speak:

“For me, [Game of Thrones] is a medieval world in which women don’t have a lot of rights, and yet they still prevail. But I do think that as the seasons have gone on it’s become more and more amazing for women. And this final season is going to be incredible. But I do think that as the seasons have gone on it’s become more and more amazing for women. And this final season is going to be incredible.”

“It just feels great, being on set with all these girls. They’re all ruling, you know, they’re all back on top – it’s pretty impressive”

Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie have been best buddies since the very first season of Game of Thrones. They not share a strong bond as the Stark sister but, also as sole sisters in their real life. Talking about her character and praising Sophie, she said:

“For me, it was a really great moment as an actor to be able to play the character you love as a baddie. It felt so amazing, even though it’s an awful scene… Who gets to be on set with their best friend? Me! We lift each other up.”

She lastly talked about her role in the final season of Game of Thrones coming to an end. She ended by saying:

“Season one to eight, that’s what I wanted. I was in the first episode and I want to be in the last.”

Jon Snow’s Direwolf, Ghost returned in the latest episode but fans weren’t thrilled

The direwolf Ghost is back in the latest episode but fans aren't thrilled

The second episode of season 8 saw the return of the good boy, the good boy being the best thing that has ever happened to Jon Snow AKA his direwolf Ghost. We last saw the direwolf in season 6 during Jon Snow’s resurrection scene. This was when he curled up, patiently waiting for Jon to stop being dead. ‘Twas a scene where a lot of boxes of tissue were passed around.

So there was rightfully a fair amount of anticipation building up to the moment when Jon and Ghost would reunite. Calling that scene in episode two a reunion would be a bit of a stretch. Fans are understandably pissed because they feel they’ve been done dirty. Which they have. I mean, look at this.

There was no build up to this scene, NOTHING. He’s just there, like an afterthought. While this scene sorely disappointed, fan reactions didn’t.

The direwolf was supposed to have some screen time back in season 7 but he finally didn’t make the cut. Turns out, CGI direwolfs are quite expensive, and with dragons hogging the limelight and the budget, there just wasn’t room for more.

So how annoyed were you with this scene in episode two? Don’t hold back, let us know how you really feel in the comments down below!

Daenerys Targaryen tries to make a friend in Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2

Daenerys Targaryen tries to make a friend in Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2

Daenerys Targaryen has been seen throughout the show to be someone who can be ruthless, as well as soft towards the ones that she loves. In the latest episode, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” we kind of got to see both sides of her. Before you proceed, SPOILER ALERT! Consider yourself warned!

Since the beginning of this season, we have seen an uneasy air of tension between Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark. In episode 2, we see Jorah Mormont speak some sense into a hot-headed Daenerys, who wouldn’t listen to her usual voice of reason, Tyrion Lannister. With Jorah’s suggestion, Daenerys extends an olive branch to Sansa.

We see her tell Sansa about why they’re similar, being women that have overcome a lot of difficulties and the oppression of men. Sansa quips by saying she thinks Daenerys has manipulated Jon, to which Daenerys says she’s in the North fighting Jon’s war.

The pair seem to be getting along quite well until Sansa asks Daenerys if she’ll let the North be free, and Daenerys doesn’t seem to take well to that idea. That conversation isn’t finished, however, so looks like we might get to see it in the aftermath of the battle that’s coming to Winterfell.

Arya Stark and Gendry share a moment in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 2 dropped today, and we got a lot more than expected, yet again. While the focus of this episode rotated between characters frequently, Arya Stark seemed to be getting a lot more done in this episode than most other characters. Before we proceed: SPOILER ALERT! Consider yourself warned.

Now, Arya has been in a lot of bad places throughout the course of the show, but Gendry doesn’t know this. We see Arya staring at a sweaty and hardworking Gendry as he forges weapons. The pair have a chat and Gendry tries telling Arya she should hide away rather than fight the dead. Arya, being herself, shows off her aim, proving a point.

Gendry is later seen bringing Arya the weapon she asked him to make and we see Arya showing off her archery skills as Gendry arrives. During their discussion, Gendry reveals his true parentage to Arya, and she proceeds to ask Gendry how many women he has been with and Arya and Gendry then end up having sex. The relationship between the two has been long anticipated, and the fans might have gotten more than they could imagine with this scene.

However, this was not all. We saw Arya’s aim being teased quite a lot in this episode, and then we see the weapon that Gendry gives her. Most of you might have realized this by now — this weapon looks similar to the Night King‘s spear. If you think about it, it’s quite the opposite of that, since Dragonglass kills White Walkers. It looks as if there’s a high chance that Arya throws the spear at Viserion, and kills it off, for good.
