With the last episode being left till the finale of Game Of Thrones, a lot of people have voiced their displeasure of how the events have unfolded, and Emilia Clarke is also one of them.
The eighth and the final season of 'Game of Thrones' was released after a lot of build-up and anticipation. With one episode being left till the finale, the fans have been utterly disappointed by the way the show has unfolded. Even though many fans are eager to see what exactly is going to happen in the finale of the most anticipated series in the history of entertainment. The penultimate episode, 'The Bells' aired last night, showing Daenerys Targaryen turn into the Mad Queen everyone speculated her to be.
A number of fans have expressed their disappointment about the final season and it seems like the fans aren't the only ones who were disappointed. Daenerys Targaryen was one of the very few characters that were widely loved and adored by the fans of the show. She has suffered some drastic changes over the course of just a few episodes. After she spent seven seasons breaking chains and freeing people, she also lost a number of people whom she considered family.
Something snapped in her and decided she wasn't about that action. Instead, she reigned fire and death on the people who didn't even cross her, and the actress who portrayed the role even hinted that she was not satisfied by the arc of her character in the final season. Speaking to Vanity Fair, she said that her character arc completely messed her up.
She added, "Knowing that is going to be a lasting flavor in someone’s mouth of what Daenerys is..." Even though she trailed off after this since she did not want to give away any sort of spoilers, it feels a little strange when you read this quote from Clarke. Even though the writers of the series explained in a post-production scene that this was coming for a long time now, it is also easy to see why Clarke had issues with the turn in her character within a matter of few episodes.
Daenerys has endured more than any other character and she has also overcome a number of horrifying odds so that she can attain the power. At the core, her character is all about protecting the innocent, and she began her journey with that trait. Even though she never shied away from the typical Targaryen bloodlust that runs through her family when it comes to her enemies or those who did some injustice to her she never acted cruelly just for the sake of cruelty.
Maybe this is exactly what Clarke was referring to in the interview, that her character suffered such a drastic change in the final episodes of the most popular series on television.
