Game of Thrones has taken over the internet in more ways than one! And this time, it because of the moves Arya Stark, essayed by Maisie Williams.
An unexpected twist in the latest episode of the hit fantasy show when Arya emerged out of nowhere to kill the Night King with her Valerian steel sagger, made her a fan favourite in no time. Viewers took to social media to celebrate the victory and recreate their own renditions of the iconic moment with hashtags #NotToday, #AryaChallenege and #TheArya.
Many fans had placed their bets on Jon Snow, Jaime Lannister or Daenerys Targaryen to finish the chapter of Night King but it was Arya who got the moment of glory. Memes about the moment with hook line 'Not today' started going viral on social media after the episode aired.
But the trend which spread like wildfire (pun intended) which became viral as the Arya Challenge. How to do it? Take an object in one hand, drop it into the other hand, and thrust it into a hypothetical Night King in front of you. People can be seen imitating Arya's moves with the knife she used to kill the Night King and posting the video online.
