Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5 is 'going to be mental' and fans need a real big TV to take it all in, says Emilia Clarke

After last Sunday's episode of 'Game of Thrones' and its fierce battle between the army of the dead and living, fans were left in shock. But if you thought that episode 3 was the most shocking episode, Emilia Clarke who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen says we better hold on to that.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, Clarke regaled audiences with an awkward encounter she had with Beyonce but toward the end of her interview she revealed that the last three episodes of GoT "are gonna be mental."

"Episode five is bigger," Clarke revealed. This information left the audience stunned as they hung on to every single detail the actress could disclose. Kimmel missed what Clarke had revealed about 'Game of Thrones' because he was prepping to end the interview. But after he heard the audience gasp at Clarke's revelation, Kimmel stopped and asked Clarke to repeat what she had said.

Clarke repeated that the fifth episode would be bigger than the rest and let out an exaggerated sigh. "I mean, four, and five, and six — they're all insane but, like," she said before she stopped mid-sentence while Kimmel repeated the timeline of the forthcoming episode. 

She then motioned that there was going to be some kind of explosion and said, "Find the biggest TV you can." To anyone who follows GoT this news comes as a shock considering that everyone thought last week's episode was outstanding. But now it seems like the series is going to top itself again. 

HBO has been quite secretive when it comes to 'Game of Thrones' for the past few seasons. So what one can do is just speculate what Clarke might be referring to. The actress also reacted to Episode 3 that aired last Sunday. Episode 3 featured the most-awaited Battle of Winterfell.  

Reacting to it, Clarke said it was "nuts" to watch the episode and revealed it required 55 nights of shooting. "Being in it and what you saw was really what it was like shooting it -- you saw blood and mud and angry, screaming people," the actress said. "It was amazing we didn't actually kill anyone. It was extraordinary."


Clarke also revealed that co-star Kit Harington who plays the role of Jon Snow had a little difficulty while filming the scene that featured him riding Dany's dragon Rhaegal.  "He was kind of arrogant about it, like 'I can do this!' Then got on, and that was when I learned that men riding dragons is like a whole other thing," the star said. "A little more uncomfortable."

"He looked really pained," Clarke said with a laugh.
