Khaleesi’s Forecast: Emilia Clarke Previews Game of Thrones Season 6

As we all know by now, Winter Is Coming … and we can’t wait. As showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have said, Season 6 is almost upon us and with it the beginning of the end and the Golden Globe-winning saga of Game of Thrones, which will probably wrap with just 13 more episodes once this sixth season is over: seven episodes for season 7, then six more for the eighth and potential final season. This is also the first season to shoot without the benefit of a book by George R.R. Martin, but based on original screenplays – so the story is even more uncharted. We confess we were among the Happy Few to see the pilot episode at the Hollywood premiere screening. Alas, since spoilers are punishable with a one-way ticket to the King’s Landing dungeons, we obviously can’t say much but we did talk to some of the stars of the show about where the story is heading. Here’s what Emilia Clarke (aka Daenerys Targaryen) had to say about the Queen of Dragons and the strong female characters in the show.
