[Spoilers for season 8, episode 2 of Game Of Thrones]

Sophie Turner spills a lot of tea. It should come as no surprise, then, that when her best mate, Maisie Williams, finally got some in Episode 69nice—she had to say something about it. She even made it holiday appropriate.

Turner took to Instagram following the scene and holy shit. “In honor of Easter, I guess Game of Thrones wanted the storyline to have a little Easter Bunny hop, hop, hoppin’ into that puss-aaayyy, and that’s the tea.As we spit out our own mouthfuls of red wine, Turner, ever a delight, takes a sip of hers.


First, let’s just address that the delivery of this—white robe, red wine, straight face—is superb. The Easter pun? Her pronunciation of the magic word? Short, sweet, and to the point. She tagged Williams in it too, making the trolling all the better. No word yet on what Williams thinks, but they like to rag on each other, so odds are she’s raising her own glass to the bit.

Turner, like a lot of Game Of Thrones fans, agree that Arya finally having sex is prize enough for all the shit she’s had to go through. Being separated from her family and childhood home for nearly seven seasons, living on the road for the majority of that, getting captured time and again, and then turning into a hardened killer is one hell of a story. Hopefully it doesn’t end with next week’s White Walker invasion.
