Spoiler warning! This article contains major spoilers for the Game of Thrones season six finale, “The Winds of Winter.” Read Heroic Hollywood’s full recap of the finale and our special ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7: What To Expect Next.’
The season six finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones put a lot of storylines in motion and left off with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) headed to Westeros, complete with a full army and dragons. Emilia Clarke spoke with Entertainment Weekly following the finale and discussed her predictions for the upcoming season and what she hopes will happen to Daenerys.
In this finale, Daenerys finally leaves Meereen and is headed to Westeros. Clarke is excited about the future for her character.
“Since marrying Khal Drogo, her one aim has been to get back to Westeros. But, oh bugger, I gotta learn how to rule. Oh god, we gotta get here first. Oh f—, I might as well rule this city. Ah, a revolt – bugger! Dammit, now I’ve got to go over there! No more slaves! Done! Brilliant! She’s got the dragons. She’s got the manpower. She’s got the ships thanks to the Iron Born. So there’s nothing else to do. She’s got to go now. Iron Throne!”
Clarke was asked about what about having to go head-to-head with Cersei for the throne.
“I mean, yeah. That’s what I’m saying. If we talk about this: basically, I’ve got ships, I’ve got manpower, I’ve got dragons that breath fire, and I apparently cannot be killed. I don’t even have an attractive man who wants to take his shirt off anywhere near me now, so there are no distractions. Though we have yet to see [Peter Dinklage] without his clothes on. The only thing missing is Jorah. He’s gotta come back. I said I can’t rule the Seven Kingdoms without him … But as with Game of Thrones, you know when your character is looking good, that’s when you know you’re not safe. Because [the writers are] all, “Oh, do you like her? We’ll kill her!”
Clarke’s character has been separate from main cast members during previous seasons but will season seven bring the chance for Daenerys to meet Jon Snow?
“Yup, but I just don’t know. Those rumors have never been substantiated within the Game of Thrones circle. It’s never been said. So I don’t know. I could kill him. He could kill me. He could be dead before we even meet. I could be dead before we even meet. Arya could kill us both! You never know! Anything’s possible. All I know is winter is coming … and I’m bringing the heat!”
