As a new season of Game of Thrones approaches, fans of the show are positing theories and, of course, immediately being shot down by spoiler-happy D-bags who read the books.
Emilia Clarke plays Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains, and Creator of Boners, Daenerys Targaryen on the series, and apparently she's a big fan of surprises
Either that or she's every bit as crafty as the Khaleesi, because when asked about the future of her character in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Emilia was about as informative as Hodor.
Here's your requisite warning that potential spoilers lie ahead:
First, Clarke was asked about the possibility of her character crossing paths with Tyrion Lannister and even though the they're meeting is hinted at in a million Game of Thrones Season 5 trailers, Emilia played it coy:
"I reckon they'd probably get along quite well, because they're quite similar in so many ways," Clarke says.
Okay, so we know she's BS-ing us on that one (You don't have to have read the books to know that Tyrion and Daenerys bro-down at some point this season.), but how does she feel about all those Game of Thrones fan theories?
THR was particularly interested in her thoughts on the identity of Jon Snow's parents, as according to the popular R + L = J theory, Jon and Daenerys are actually related.
Emilia says she wasn't aware of that theory (Do they not have wi-fi in Meereen?), but she says that even if turns out to be true, it doesn't necessarily mean that Dany and Jon will never throw down or hook up. (This is Westeros, after all.)
"If me and Jon Snow did meet, it would be interesting," says Clarke. "It would be funny, but I think Daenerys would ultimately kick his ass."
She added that she wouldn't rule out the possibility that they'll have a little sword-in-sheath action, as it would allow the Khaleesi to "keep the bloodline pure," as Targaryens are wont to do. Gross.
If you still need to get caught up in time for the finale, or if you just want to relive all the incestuous action, watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic.
