Emilia Clarke Says She 'Stands By' Daenerys' 'GoT' Ending

Emilia Clarke Says She 'Stands By' Daenerys' 'GoT' Ending

In a shocking turn of events, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) killed Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and was sentenced to rejoin the Night's Watch. We have uglier sides to ourselves.

"I cried", Clarke told Entertainment Weekly about what it was like when she read the script for the first time. I think the first part already happened: Dany had the opportunity to seized the throne, by fighting Cersei, but made a decision to go North instead to help Jon Snow fight the Night King. We're going in blind but I know you want to see it live. I stand by her! 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.

Just like before, that's not to say the actors did a bad job with what they were served, or that other aspects of the show including the cinematography, music, and special effects aren't incredible. Whatever the case, she acknowledged that she was "terrible". "I forgot that", she said. And she's making this speech to thousands of people about how she's their queen. This has been building. "You're culpable, you cheered her on'". Dany and Jon's twisty storyline wrapped up with a kiss... and a brutal stabbing.

Russia tells Pompeo - Enough mistrust, let's reboot our ties
Putin told Pompeo his recent telephone conversation with Trump raised hopes for an improvement in relations. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Putin and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday.

Check out what heartfelt things the cast (from Emilia Clarke to Gwendoline Christie to Liam Cunningham etc. etc.) had to say in the hours leading up to the series finale. After eight years of global fanfare, the series finale for one of the most popular television shows in history has come and gone, though not without some disappointment and at least one big editing mishap.

And while there's been much debate over who will take the Iron Throne and the overall direction of the final season, fans will likely be lining up to watch it all unfold larger-than-life at the Rio.
