Game of Thrones has got to be the greatest TV experience humans were ever blessed with. It has been with us since 2011 and referring to it as an emotional rollercoaster is an understatement. People who watch the series know how heartbreaking it can be at times. Especially now since the last season is airing. Episode three of season eight left everyone shocked as some pretty intense scenarios unraveled. If you still haven’t seen the last episode, what are you even doing here? Spoilers ahead.
The Battle or Winterfell took 55 nights to shoot and I think it is safe to say it turned out to live up to everyone’s expectations. The cast was delighted with the outcome. Especially Emilia Clarke, the mother of dragons.
Talking to Jimmy Kimmel about the show, Clarke said:
That was the bit where I was shaking and crying. It was nuts. I mean, being in—what you saw was really what it was like shooting it. You saw blood and mud and angry, screaming people. And then backstage there was blood and mud—and asleep people.
It’s pretty interesting how they shoot the whole scenes. A lot of green screen use goes in there. Especially when Daenerys and Jon ride those almighty dragons. Emilia claimed that shooting the last season of Game of Thrones has been dangerous in real life too, hinting at the incident that Harington had while “riding the dragon”, where his testicles got stuck in the contraption.

And that’s not all there is. Emilia Clarke is keeping us on our toes, claiming that:
Episode five is bigger. Episode five is —I mean, four and five and six, they’re all insane, but like…Find the biggest TV you can.
I don’t think we are ready for the release of the next three episodes. We are mentally, physically and emotionally NOT ready for it, I tell ya.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on HBO.
