Emilia Clarke reveals that Game Of Thrones series eight will divide the show’s fans: ‘People will scream’

We’re still not sure how we feel about Game Of Thrones ending next year. In fact, we’re still pretty shook – where else are we going to have get our fix for fantastical blood-letting and backstabbing machinations? But with series eight of the show still firmly under wraps as filming continues there’s still a while before we have to say goodbye; though there are still so many questions left unanswered.

However, it seems that no matter what happened the ending for HBO’s epic fantasy romp will leave viewers divided, at least that’s what the Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) thinks. Speaking about her thoughts on the final series, the 31-year-old actress teased: ‘People will scream and people will say, “That’s exactly what I wanted.” And some people will go, “huh?” – my mum, probably.’

She made the comment during an interview with The Herald And Sun, but she’s not the first to say that fans will be left divided when it comes to reactions. ‘It’s either going to be everything that everyone dreamed of, or it’s gonna be disappointing,’ Maisie Williams told the Radio Times. ‘It depends which side of the fence you’re going to sit on. I think no matter what you do there’s definitely going to be that divide.

‘It depends on what people want from the final season. I love it, but I don’t know. You never know.’ As it is, there’s no current release date slated for the eighth and final series of the show – though best guesses and rumours place it in spring next year.
