Millions of "Game of Thrones" fans were thrilled by the surprise twist at the end of the last episode — when Arya Stark finally killed the Night King using her Valyrian steel dagger, ending the Battle of Winterfell.

"The hardest thing is in any series is when you build up a villain that's so impossible to defeat and then you defeat them," she continued. "It has to be intelligently done because otherwise people are like, 'Well, [the villain] couldn't have been that bad when some 100-pound girl comes in and stabs him.' You gotta make it cool."

Williams also revealed that even her boyfriend thought Jon Snow should have been the one to deliver the fatal blow: "And then I told my boyfriend and he was like, 'Mmm, should be Jon though really, shouldn't it?'"

Some fans agreed, tweeting that it made more sense for Jon to kill the Night King given their history over the course of the show.

Others came to her defense, even suggesting she should break up with her boyfriend. After all, Arya had been training for this moment nearly since the show's first episode.

Most of them have to do with which beloved character will suffer a painful death at the hands of the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and his army during the imminent Battle of Winterfell.

According to the show's creators, they've known Arya was going to be the one to kill the leader of the Army of the Dead for around three years. "We hoped to kind of avoid the expected," creator David Benioff said during Sunday's "Inside The Episode." "Jon Snow has always been the hero, the one who's been the savior, but it just didn't seem right to us, for this moment."

Williams said she ultimately realized that her character deserved the big moment. "When we did the whole bit with Melisandre, I realized the whole scene with [the Red Woman] brings it back to everything I've been working for over the past 6 seasons," she said.

Director Miguel Sapochnik echoed those sentiments -- he wanted the audience to be completely caught off guard. "So we follow Jon in a continuous shot I want the audience to think: 'Jon's gonna do it, Jon's gonna do it…' and then he fails," Sapochnik told EW. "He fails at the very last minute.
