Khaleesi just told us that next season of 'Game of Thrones' is going to 'mental' (!!!!!)
One can always count on Emilia Clark AKA Daenerys Targaryen for a little bit of Game of Thrones dirt. This is the same Khaleesi who got our hopes up about Jon Snow coming back for Season 6 (she gave us a “50/50 chance” re: Snow’s return, hey, we’ll take it!)
Now Clarke is dishing on the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, and she’s throwing around adjectives like ‘mental’ and ‘epic’ which are only our favorite words to describe binge-watch television.
When asked by the LA Times what this coming season held in store for the Mother of Dragons, Clarke’s response got us ALL kinds of excited.
“Ooooh. Oooooh there’s so much in store for her,” Clarke teased. “I’m saying that obviously because I’ve read the script for next season. Muwah ha ha! I know stories. It’s really exciting. Next season, I’ve said this before, but there’s a lot of season where you need to (rightly so) kind of need to set the scene. And you have a couple of episodes where you’re like, “OK, feeding information, I get it. We’re finding out about this person. And we know about that person. And oh, there’s that person.” But this season coming up, that we’re about to film, there’s none of that. It’s just go, go, go, go. Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It’s mental; it’s epic. And definitely Dany’s a part of it.”
We LOVE hearing this. Like Clarke says, we get that exposition and world-building and laying pipe is all part of what you sign up for when you sit down to watch a fantasy series. That said, we’ve had five seasons of being fed information and getting to know this ginormous cast of characters, we are super-primed and ready for a season that just goes from shocking moment to shocking moment. Mental and epic, sign us up, we’re ready, next spring can’t come soon enough!
The entire LA Times interview is well worth the read for GOT fans, Clarke goes deep into Dany analysis and gives tons of great behind the scenes info, check it out over here.
