If your pandemic television binging includes finally watching all of Game of Thrones, then be warned: *winter spoilers is coming*. Also, lucky you! Get ready for plenty of titties, bums, and dragons. Followed by a meh final season that co-starred a Starbucks cup and two (TWO!) water bottles.
Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen, First of Her Name, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons, and Victim of Illogical Last Minute Character Development, had some shit to say about the show’s ending in an interview with The Times.
If you’re an Emilia Clarke stan (which that dog is obviously not) hoping to get a selfie with the Queen of Dragons, too bad–she is done with all that. Sorry Meghan McCain. But she has a good reason and she’s not saying “fuck off” completely. She’s just over the whole selfie thing after getting accosted for one during a crying-filled panic attack in an airport. I mean, I guess a picture of a celebrity is still cool even if they’re in distress? It’s definitely more valuable to TMZ.
Emilia Clarke Says That Conleth Hill Was The One Who Left That Coffee Cup In Frame During The Final Season Of “Game Of Thrones”
Game Of Thrones had a messy final season. Fans hated the final it. There were episodes so dark people were like, “Um I’m trying to watch a show about a medieval type world without electricity–I don’t want to live in one.” People’s hands were just growing back willy-nilly. And probably the most infamous fuck up was the coffee cup.
Queen of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, took the blame for it since she was the one who was nearby the cup, but she was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and cleared her name! ‘Twas not her who left the cup!
The guys who shit the bed at Westeros, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have just stepped away from/been asked to step away from the big cushy Star Wars bed in the sky. It makes sense. Do you know how hard it is to get shit stains out of a sheet IN SPACE? According to Deadline, the Game Of Thrones showrunning duo who become more hated than season 2 King Joffrey (for non GOT fans, he was a like a less sympathetic, murderous Aaron Carter) have decided to walk away from a deal with Disney which would have had them at the helm of a Star Wars feature film trilogy. Coincidentally, the pair just participated in a GOT panel at the Austin Film Festival with disastrous results for their reputations.
Game of Thrones is over. That is, it’s over until the upcoming prequel series renders the offices of non-watchers completely annoying on Monday mornings once again. But the series ending doesn’t mean that the subset of GoT fans who despised the final season so much that they created a damn petition to have it redone have ceased frothing at the collective mouth. Some of the cast appeared at the GoT panel at fanperson mecca San Diego Comic-Con and addressed the backlash.
Showrunners run, that’s what they’re supposed to do. And David Benioff and Dan Weiss of Game Of Thrones infamy are doing just that; running away as fast as they can. D&D were scheduled to appear on a panel at Comic-Con tomorrow, but HBO just released the final lineup and their names are missing. These two gingerbread men are not trying to get caught out here with their smallclothes down around their ankles in front of a mob of angry nerds. Not today, R’hllor!
