As you've no doubt gathered, Game of Thrones reached its crescendo late yesterday evening with "The Iron Throne".

And though best known for her film work, Olsen did eventually make her way to television with the Facebook Watch series Sorry for Your Loss, which has her in contention for an Emmy.

"Because isn't everyone already up to their eyeballs with Game of Thrones?". Emilia recalled her feelings upon reading the script for the first time. I didn't come back for five hours. "I cried. And I went for a walk". The actress held Yoncé's opinion in high regard as the "Formation" singer has said in the past that the Mother of Dragons is her favorite character on the popular show.

She admitted that she called her family for reassurance while trying not to spoil the season. "And then I asked my mom and brother really weird questions".

"Without you there is no us".

"I thought she was going to die, I feel very taken care of as a character in that sense". Why are you asking us that question?

Lillard and McCollum have combined to score 51.9 points per game this series, but haven't shot the ball particularly well. Lillard said it was just the spark the Blazers needed to complete the comeback from a 17-point first-half hole.

What do you think about the Daenerys Targaryen's final scene?

However, other people will want to remember her as the Breaker of Chains, liberator of cities, and a ferocious character that was driven and kind-hearted. As for Harrington he told EW, "I looked at Emilia and there was a moment of me realizing, 'No, no...'" Clarke had a similar reaction. But if you track her story all the way back, she does some bad things. "And all I wanted to scream was 'Please, please still like me even though my character turns into a mass-killing dictator! It really messed me up". "I'm like, 'How am I going to do this?'"

Dany may have made a public statement of appointing Grey Worm the new Master of War, but clearly she must have tapped a Master of Manis at some point, too.

In a new interview with The New Yorker, Clarke opened up about her experiences working on Game of Thrones and what it's been like to have to live in a world full of people who at times see her as Daenerys rather than herself. She "completely flipped out" and left the airport in a hurry. "And so, with all of that, I think that it brings us to the moment where she's on top of the dragon and making that choice".

Clarke went on to say that writers Benioff and Weiss have created some fantastic dialogue heavy scenes between characters in the past, and that it was a bit of a shame to not have a lot of that in the final season.
