Game of Thrones is officially over.

One of the coolest shots from the episode.

The hotly-anticipated final episode of the hit HBO fantasy drama series, broadcast in the early hours of Monday morning on Sky Atlantic, received a largely positive response from fans.

After almost a decade the HBO series, Game of Thrones has reached its conclusion, and the final character to suddenly depart from the series was none other than Daenerys of House Targaryen.

Clarke, who plays Daenerys, spoke to Entertainment Weekly, where she noted Harrington first read the script at the table read. The internet's sentiment toward Dany's progression has been split, with many acknowledging the foreshadowing of her descent into madness, but deploring how quickly it happened in the final season.

For obvious reasons, she was sworn to keep the information secret, but now, she's finally free to speak out about how the series played out and everyone's sudden fondness for seeing Daenerys as a mad queen. But to you, dear kind magical fans, I owe you so much thanks, for your steady gaze at what we've made and what I've done with a character that was already in the hearts of many before I slipped on the platinum wig of dreams.

McHugh also refuted the allegation that "any employee was sacked to quash concerns relating to any client". A report by the New York Times revealed that the transactions dated to the period of 2016 and 2017.

And, I must admit, I was sitting tentatively on that chair thinking, How long is this going to last?

"I'm just so deep in Game of Thrones that all I can think about is Kit Harington", Olsen confessed. Without you there is no us.

And Dany couldn't recover from it. As the actress recounted, Beyoncé ("this vision, this angel, this incredible woman") came up to introduce herself, saying she thought Clarke was "brilliant". "I can't turn this ship around". It's not that I wanted to show her as 'mad, ' because I really don't like that word. As for Harrington he told EW, "I looked at Emilia and there was a moment of me realizing, 'No, no...'" Clarke had a similar reaction.

Clarke said she understands why Daenerys snapped-after all, she had lived through eight seasons of torture and death, including the demise of her children, both human and dragon. Harington said the twist was especially hard for Jon Snow. "The justification is: Just because they're women, why should they be the goodies?" As much as everyone enjoyed watching the Seven Kingdoms narrowly avoid getting iced by the Night King and his army, the already building hype for the prequel feels, at least partially, like an attempt to keep the original series' momentum going, which isn't exactly the best thing.
