Let’s just address this now instead of waiting until I get around to publishing my recap: yes, Maisie Williams is old enough — 22 — to be a participant in SPOILER ALERT! that sex scene last night EVEN THOUGH ARYA IS OBVIOUSLY JUST A TINY BABY. A TINY TINY MURDER BABY.
HBO, knowing that people were going to freak out, posted this ahead of the episode, and maybe revealed Arya’s age in the process:
As for Maisie Williams herself, at first, she thought the scene was a prank by the writers.
Some things you can bet on in Las Vegas: Who will die next; who will sit on the Iron Throne; how many people Arya will kill on her list; who will win in Cleaganebowl; and whether or not Arya will wear Littlefinger’s face.
Here’s the Florence + the Machine’s version of the “Jenny of Oldstones” song from last night’s Game of Thrones episode. SO BEAUTIFUL AND SO HAUNTING.
Speaking of, here are six other original songs from the show.
Oh, and guess what? Last night’s episode leaked early. Again.

Whoa. So last week, I almost linked to an Uproxx post that was mildly critical of Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost but then decided against it because I doubted anyone other than me cared. As it turned out, someone cared — someone cared enough to post multiple posts on Instagram insinuating that the Uproxx writer performs acts of bestiality on rescue dogs. And that someone was Michael Che.
