Guys, seriously, how much did Khalessi own on last night’s episode?
Freeing slaves, conquering Mereen, tossing the sigil of The Dragon over that weird angel statue? Litle Miss Stormborn had it going like a boss.
I don’t have much to say about it, and it’s interesting to me that she’s my favorite for the week when she did less than a lot of other people. (Other options included Jon Snow, who did some mighty fine speechafyin’ and The White Walkers because OH MY GOD HOW CREEPY WAS THAT?) But in the end, there can’t be anything better to me than Daenerys.
What’s interesting to me is that this throughline in the books lost my interest but Emilia Clarke’s arresting presence keeps any and everything interested. She really does feel like a queen, a leader in these episode, leading her children/people/brothers/sisters towards freedom and towards her ultimate reward.
And really, that shot of her standing on top of that pyramid,triumphant with that coy smile on her face was one of the most epic shots in the history of this show with it’s many epic shot.
So, Khaleesi, Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, and the true queen of Westeros? Way to go and congrats on your win.
But also, I mean, dude The White Walkers.
