Every episode of Game Of Thrones this season has given us a moment we just HAVE to talk about!
Last night’s powerful moment came from Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as she proved just how badass she really is by bringing the house down — literally — not to mention going back on her nudity ban!
All season, Khaleesi has been held by the Dothraki.
After Jorah (Iain Glen) and Daario (Michiel Huisman) did their best to save her, the Mother of Dragons had her own plan — which included showing the Dothraki leaders how she got her other title: “The Unburnt”!
During a meeting with the council to decide her fate, the blonde beauty pulled out all the stops by demanding that she be put in charge.
Of course this didn’t go over well with the leaders, but Dany didn’t care as she had locked the door to the hut behind her, and proceeded to burn that mother down!
As a result, all of the men died and Daenerys walked out of the blaze completely naked and unharmed — oh, and it looks like she’s totally going to rule the Dothraki now, as they bowed before the impervious goddess!
What many fans might find surprising is that Clarke actually appeared nude!
If you remember, the 29-year-old had reportedly once said that she had sworn off nude scenes. However, she later clarified her distaste for explicit sex scenes and said she would appear naked for the right reasons.
Well, Sunday’s episode gave us just that as the actress revealed to Entertainment Weekly that was indeed her naked body and not a double, as was famously used in Cersei’s walk of shame:
“I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3. That was awhile ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ├óΓé¼╦£Yes.’ That ain’t no body double!”
As for Emilia’s feelings on the scene itself, she said:
“Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment. I just stand up and I go, ├óΓé¼╦£I’m hearing what you’re all saying, but funny thing, I’m going to kill you all. I forgot that I have an ace in my back pocket and now I win.'”
Get it grrrl!
As for how fans reacted to that scene? Well everyone seemed to be quite pleased as people took to Twitter to share:
Did you love Khaleesi’s powerful moment as much as we did?!
