Last week’s epsiode of Game of Thrones — “The Long Night” — has quickly become the most viewed episode of the series thanks to the huge battle between the North and the White Walkers, and of course, the fight would not have been what it was without the help of fan-appointed-MVP Arya Stark. The character earned her big moment in the show when she leapt at the Night King just before he was about to kill Bran Stark, with her dagger in hand. Although the Night King caught her mid-air, she pulled off a manoeuvre now dubbed #TheArya, dropping the dagger from her restricted hand and catching it with her other hand before stabbing the Night King with Valryian Steel, killing him and the rest of his undead army off. The moment unsurprisingly became a fan favorite — even Drake gave Arya a shout-out — which led to many fans recreating the moment in what is now a viral challenge on social media.
For a full display of fans doing #TheArya, check out the tweets below.
