“Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams wants everybody to know they weren’t alone if they felt awkward during her sex scene.

Williams, who plays Arya on the hit HBO show, did a relatively shocking sex scene with her character and Gendry in the second episode of the final season this past Sunday. For those of you interested, you can watch it here. (RELATED: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of ‘Game Of Thrones‘ Star Emilia Clarke On The Internet)

I wasn’t against the scene at all, but it did feel a shade uncomfortable. Williams wants to let the world know none of us were alone in that feeling, and that includes herself.

“[If] u feel uncomfortable just know that my mother and my stepdad and my [two] sisters and my [four] brothers have all probably watched this too ahahakillmeehehe,” she tweeted Tuesday afternoon. The tweet has since gone viral with nearly 100,000 retweets and over 500,000 likes.

Well, I’m glad to know we’re all in the same boat, and that boat includes the woman who carried out the scene. Again, I have nothing against the scene.

Arya could be dead by the end of the third episode, and she wanted to have sex before the Night King shows up and potentially shows out.

Not hating on that mentality at all.

It was just a shade weird watching Arya (and Williams by extension) grow up over the past decade and then watching her get it on with Gendry.

It was just jarring, to say the least, but that’s what makes “Thrones” so great. You never know what you’re going to get. (RELATED: ‘Game Of Thrones‘ Season 8, Episode 2 ‘A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms’ Is Outstanding)

Also, given all the rape that’s gone on in the show, at least that scene was about as consensual as you’ll get in “GoT.”

Make sure to tune in Sunday night to see how the battle of Winterfell goes down and if Arya will live to ever have sex again.

It should be absolutely epic.
