Emilia Clarke And The "GoT" Creators Responded To The Daenerys Controversy - BuzzFeed

If you've spent any time on the internet over the past couple of days, you might have noticed that people have a lot of ~opinions~ about the latest episode of Game of Thrones.


🚨 🚨 🚨 WARNING: If you haven't seen the episode yet, there are MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. 🚨 🚨 🚨

The episode, which saw Daenerys deciding to torch all of Kings' Landing, has divided viewers. Some are furious, accusing the show runners of misogyny and poor character development, whereas others think the events were to be expected.

Well, Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys in the show, has now revealed how she feels about everything that went down.


Speaking in a behind-the-scenes video made by HBO, Emilia said: "Every single thing that's led her to this point...and there she is alone. We've all got this part of us that goes, 'I'm going to put that chocolate cake down, I'm going to walk away.' We can't be getting into these moral conundrums all the time. I'm not saying chocolate cake is a moral conundrum — eat as much fucking cake as you want — but those things that you wrestle with in yourself."

Then, after the episode aired, Emilia shared this Instagram post, showing her preparing to drink an entire bottle of champagne.

"This is what it took not only to shoot ep5...but to watch it too!" She wrote in the caption, alongside the hashtag: "#soshockingitblewmywigoff #😳 #🤢"

Meanwhile, the episode's director explained that the scenes were particularly challenging for Emilia since Daenerys embodies everything she's not.

He went on to give some insight into why Daenerys made the decision to torch King's Landing, explaining that she felt "empty" despite having achieving victory.


He said: "She feels empty. It wasn't what she thought it was. It's not enough."

And the show's co-creator, David Benioff, concluded by suggesting that viewers should have seen the plot twist coming.


The show's co-creator David Benioff explained: "Ultimately, she is who she is and that's a Targaryen. She has said repeatedly throughout the show, 'I will take what is mine with fire and blood,' and in this episode, she does it."
