Emilia Clarke has some advice for Game of Thrones fans! The U.K.-born actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, May 1, and dished on the upcoming episode of the HBO show.
“Episode five is bigger,” Clarke, 32, told Jimmy Kimmel while discussing the dramatic Sunday, April 28, “Battle of Winterfell” episode. “Episode five is — I mean, four and five and six, they’re all insane, but like … find the biggest TV you can.”
Clarke repeated that the fifth episode would be bigger and let out an exaggerated sigh, signaling that the episode is gonna be *Gwen Stefani voice* B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
“I mean, four, and five, and six — they’re all insane but, like,” she said before stopping short of finishing her sentence while Kimmel was repeating the timeline of the upcoming episodes.
The star them seemingly motioned that there was going to be some sort of explosion and said, “Find the biggest TV you can.”
Now for fans, this is pretty big news considering the last week’s episode was pretty insane.
Fans were shocked to see that the main villain of the show The Night King was killed by Arya Stark in a single blow.
But now it seems like the show is gonna top itself again.
HBO has been pretty secretive about Game of Thrones for the last few seasons, so all we can do is speculate about what Clarke may be referring to.
HBO director has already mentioned that season 8 has scenes more horrible than The Red Wedding. Now we can guess that Episode 5 would be the one in which horrible things happen.
In the first episode of season 8, Qyburn told Bronn that Cersei had some other plans for the Targaryen girl and want Bronn to kill her brothers Jaime and Tyrion.
The three remaining episodes will be pretty long.
Episode four will clock in at an hour and 18 minutes, while episodes five and six will be an hour and 20 minutes each.
If there’s anything we can be sure about, it’s that you should never underestimate Cersei. She is the true villain of the show.
Apart from that tease, Clarke revealed a few other details about making Thrones—most amusingly, her playfully competitive relationship with Kit Harington. This season saw Jon Snow hop on one of his girlfriend-slash-aunt’s dragons for a quick joyride—but according to Clarke, filming those scenes was far less enjoyable for Harington than it might look on-screen.
Clarke recalled that when Harington first found out he would get to ride the dragons, “He was all like, ‘Pshh, yeah. You think you’re good at this? Let me be a professional!’”
“He was kind of arrogant about it,” she continued with a laugh, “and was like, ‘I can do this,’ and then got on—and that was when I learned that men riding dragons is like a whole other thing than a lady who rides a dragon. Little more uncomfortable for them.” For those who didn’t quite follow, Jimmy Kimmel helpfully clarified, “Oh, right! Because of the human testicles.”
“He looked really pained!” Clarke said. “I was like, ‘You all right?’” She put on a particularly clenched voice in imitating Harington’s response: “He’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m fine.’”
As pitiable as that sounds, Clarke couldn’t help but take the opportunity to make things just a little more uncomfortable for her co-star: “I was kind of letting the girl who’s doing the joysticks know to just . . . whenever she felt [it was] needed, to just mess with him.”
So guys Find the biggest TV you can because Game of Thrones next episode is coming.
