both of them are part of epiphany. doing pacman -Rns epiphany will do 
the job and is not breaking gnome at all.

as for your information, nothing is installed automatically without 
informing you. when you did pacman -S gnome (gnome is a group of 
packages) it listed all packages that it will installed and answering Y 
will do that. If you do answer N you can select what you want.
