Season 8, Episode 2 of Game of Thrones had many key moments, including the surprise sex scene between Arya Stark and Gendry, which shocked millions of fans. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the series, shared how she thought the hot interaction was initially a joke and what it was like to have her character get intimate on the screen.After Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) told her about the sex scene with Gendry (Joe Dempsie), Williams didn’t believe it at first. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Williams explained how the Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have previously pranked cast members before by sending them bogus scripts. “At first, I thought it was a prank,” Williams told Entertainment Weekly. “I was like, ‘Yo, good one.’ And [the showrunners were] like, ‘No, we haven’t done that this year.’ Oh f—k!”Once the Game of Thrones Season 8 table read took place, Williams accepted that Arya Stark was going to “do it” with Gendry on the night before Winterfell battles the Night King and his undead army. “I got to the read-through and I’m reading the scene and thought, ‘Oh, we’re actually going to do this. When do I shoot this? I need to go to the gym.’ A whole list of things,” Williams added.A bigger question was how Williams conducted the scene, since viewers have seen her grow up on the show. For the scene, Williams decided to take a moderate approach and let audience members focus on why her character needed this intimate moment with Gendry.“David and Dan were like: ‘You can show as much or as little as you want,’” Williams told Entertainment Weekly. “So I kept myself pretty private. I don’t think it’s important for Arya to flash. This beat isn’t really about that. And everybody else has already done it on the show, so…”I wasn’t ready for this #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/G6JdbSLCec— House Box Office (@HBO) April 22, 2019Dempsie, who plays Gendry, also said the scene was a bit “awkward” for him too, since Williams is a good decade younger than him. “It’s obviously slightly strange for me because I’ve known Maisie since she was 11, 12 years old. At the same time, I don’t want to be patronizing toward Maisie — she’s a 20-year-old woman,” Dempsie told Entertainment Weekly. “So we just had a lot of fun with it.”Williams also emphasized how important the scene was for Arya Stark, who has had trouble maintaining human connections with others in the past.“This may be is a moment where Arya accepts death tomorrow, which she never does — ‘Not Today.’ So it was that moment where she says, ‘We’re probably going to die tomorrow, I want to know what this feels like before that happens.’ It’s interesting to see Arya be a bit more human, speak more normally about things people are scared of,” Williams added.Catch Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 on Sunday, April 27, at 9 p.m. EST.More on Geek.com:‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 2 Recap: Drink With Me to Days Gone ByPodrick’s Song Is Connected to a Major ‘Game of Thrones’ Prophecy‘Game of Thrones’ Writer: It Was ‘Tough’ to Reveal Jon Snow’s True Heritage ‘Game of Thrones’ Director Explains Why Arya Ambushed the Night King’Game of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Predicts Sansa Stark’s Future Stay on target

You add Chris Johnson, Fells had a great game last week.“You have so many weapons that they can utilize and get what they want done, you know, and execute.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories A guest of Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Thursday, Rolle was asked about having to face Cardinals QB Carson Palmer, who passed for 307 yards and three touchdowns last Sunday. When answering, the safety instead pointed to the entire Arizona offense.“I think they have a dynamic offense, I think they have great execution in their offense,” Rolle said. “I think it all starts with Carson, obviously, and then you have a lot of intangibles like the great Larry Fitzgerald, who I’m very familiar with. And you have a guy you all call John Brown, but I call Smokey.”Fitzgerald, of course, was the leading receiver on the Super Bowl team Rolle was a part of. While the veteran isn’t quite that player anymore, he led the Cardinals with six catches and 87 yards in Arizona’s season-opening win against the New Orleans Saints.Also in that game, Palmer completed passes to eight different receivers, while targeting 10 in the afternoon. The Cardinals aim to spread the ball around, which helps to make them even more difficult for an opponent to defend.Because while Fitzgerald led the team in catches and yards, it was Brown, tight end Darren Fells and running back David Johnson who were on the receiving end of Palmer’s touchdown passes, while running back Andre Ellington also found the end zone on a short run.

They also had a running back, rookie Tim Hightower, who scored 10 rushing touchdowns.That was seven years ago, however. This season, Rolle is a member of the Chicago Bears, who are getting ready to host the Cardinals in a Week 2 matchup at Soldier Field Sunday.
