Arya Stark got a little flirty during Sunday’s premiere of “Game of Thrones” on HBO.
Shortly after the arrival of Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and her army, Arya walks into the smithy to find Gendry forging weapons out of dragonglass and being messed with by the Hound. She steps in and tells him to leave Gendry alone.
Once the two were alone, they bantered like they used to and couldn’t stop smiling.
Fans were thrilled by their flirtatious reunion.
Gendry and Arya first met on season one when Arya pretended to be a boy named Arry. The two formed a friendship over three seasons as they traveled north. But on the third season, the red priestess Melisandre took Gendry away for his royal blood, as he was the bastard son of Robert Baratheon.
After being separated, Arya spots Gendry for the first time when she’s watching the army processional as it arrives in Winterfell. Upon seeing her old friend, she gives a shy little smile and stares at his horse as it passes by.
She later visits him the smithy to ask him to make her a weapon. Upon first interacting, Gendry stumbles over his words.
“That’s a nice axe you made [the Hound],” Arya says. “You’ve gotten better.”
“Gee, thanks, so have you,” Gendry says. “I mean, you look good.”
“Thanks, so do you,” Arya says.
Gendry later calls her Lady Stark before she tells him not to call her that.
“As you wish, my lady,” Gendry says, causing Arya to laugh and smile.
Some fans made comparisons to “The Princess Bride” with Gendry’s response.
With Arya’s request for a new weapon, the two are sure to have more awkward and adorable interactions.
And as some fans pointed out, Robert Baratheon did once predict joining houses with the Starks, telling Ned Stark, “We’ll join our houses. I have a son, you have a daughter.”
Sansa and Joffrey’s marriage technically didn’t since Joffrey was the son of Cersei and Jaime Lannister.
“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
