Emilia Clarke bids emotional adieu to Daenerys after Game of Thrones finale

These ‘Game of Thrones’ Prophecies Reveal A Lot About the Series Finale

Viewers need a break before the Game of Thrones universe returns with an equally epic prequel, series star Emilia Clarke has pleaded.

Clarke told Entertainment Weekly about the moment in October 2017 when she found out about her character's fate. The actor said she received the scripts the moment she landed at Heathrow Airport.

Clarke said that when the cast went through the final script, she sat across from Harington so she could "watch him compute all of this".

"All I wanted to scream was, 'Please, please still like me even though my character turns into a mass-killing dictator!" I walked out of the house and took my keys and phone and walked back with blisters on my feet. "I'm like, 'How am I going to do this?'" she said.

The trailer shows Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, crying as he reads his final scene with Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen. "So yes, this has made me look back at all the notes I've ever had".

"I'm just so deep in Game of Thrones that all I can think about is Kit Harington", Olsen confessed. "It really messed me up".

Clarke says that justifying Daenerys's actions wasn't easy.

Prosecutors detailed a string of incidents over the years that had seen Bowen accused of undue violence against migrants . A CBP official said officers follow instructions from HHS in determining where and when to send apprehended kids.

In her final scene during the show's finale, Dany is seen admiring the throne that she fought so long, hard, and ultimately ruthlessly for.

Harington said he expected reactions to the finale to be divided. Of course, it complicated things when he learned she was his aunt. Without his love or the love of the people of Westeros, this leads to her new mindset to rule by fear. This has been building. You knew something was wrong.

I'm of the mind-set of, like, 'Leave while the party's still going, ' because then you're going to leave with some good memories. Losing Missandei was a huge turning point for her character: "There's nothing I will not do after losing Missandai and seeing the sacrifice she was prepared to make for her". It's a very handsome and touching ending. Hopefully, what you'll see in that last moment as she's dying is: There's the vulnerability - there's the little girl you met in season 1. See? She's right there. And now, she's not there anymore...

But Clarke explained that as surprised as she was, in the months leading up to her learning Daenerys' fate, she'd considered whether the overall upward trajectory of Daenerys' development compared to the ups and downs experienced by other characters.

"There's so much she's taken on in her duty in life to rectify, so much she's seen and witnessed and been through and lost and suffered and hurt", Clarke said. "I'm having a conversation with a crazed fan who's looking at me like a rabbit in the headlights.' Which is exactly what I was", she continued.
