Game Of Thrones' Emilia Clarke defends Daenerys' reaction to incest revelation

Viserys was a prominent feature in the show’s first season, having a bizarre hold over his sister before he made the fatal error of selling her to the Dothraki – and her finding her feet as the queen she deserved to be.

As a result, her stubborn brother kicked off and got molten gold poured over his head – which is a pretty memorable way to go even by GOT standards.

But Viserys’s death also meant, in Daenerys’s mind, she was uncontended in the line to the throne – until now, when that snow-loving man from the North comes and ruins her plans.

Emilia declared: ‘The main thing is we’re up for the same promotion and I’ve been working for it for my entire existence. This is my whole existence! Since birth!’

‘There’s so much she’s seen and witnessed and been through and lost and suffered and hurt to get here… and Jon doesn’t even want it!,’ she added.

Well…she’s not wrong, is she?

(And to be fair, the Targaryen lineage is a little complicated at this point.)

However, if fortune and fate favours her, that might not be a worry – as the last episode’s signature song seemed to hint at her destiny on the Iron Throne.

They’ve just got to get through the War Of Winterfell first, which promises not every character will make it out alive as they are surprised by the Night King and his White Walker army.

Game Of Thrones airs Sundays on HBO and Sky Atlantic. And is available to watch on NOW TV.
