Emilia Clarke Claims Season 8 Episode 5 Is the Best Game of Thrones Ever And We Have Our Doubts!

Emilia Clarke alerts the fans to watch the upcoming battle of Game of Thrones in the biggest screen possible.  

Game of Thrones star, Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen has teased that episode five of the show’s ongoing season is going to feature a battle "bigger" than the Winterfell’s.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, the 32-year-old actress alerted the fans to find the biggest screen they can for an upcoming episode of the series.

Emilia further added they (fans) "are going to be mental – episode five is bigger. Episode five is ahhhh. I mean four and five and six, they're all insane, but..."

On the talk show, Jimmy asked: "Four is this Sunday, five is where something crazy happens,” to which Clarke answered by saying: "Find the biggest TV you can."

Episode three 'The Long Night' saw the Battle of Winterfell, the result of a 55-night shoot, which was hyped as one of the biggest and longest battles to be ever filmed.

In the episode, Arya Stark turned out to be the main hero to take down the Night King with that significant blade known as the Valyrian dagger.

There were plenty of other deaths in the episode, including some that weren’t televised onto the screen.

The White Walkers' deaths raise some big questions about the unresolved plotlines from the show. But for now, it looks like the main concern will be the impending battle between Cersei (Lena Headey) and the Golden Company vs Daenerys and the King in the North.

Considering what Lannister has brought into the show, Emilia is fair to raise the anticipation. But then again when you look at the recent episodes of GoT, it seems futile to expect any bigger from the showrunners. Ever since the show deviated from the RR Martin's material, many critics have lashed it for being just another fan-oriented show. True the series has given us some of the most iconic scenes that the TV has ever seen of, but in the latest episode, it is failing to live up to its true standards.

From being too shady in its cinematography to being too character-wise, the battle of Winterfell was all about saving the long rooted character. It wouldn’t have been that much of an issue, if the writers hadn’t killed Night King, one of the mysterious characters of the show in one shot. NK has been in the world of GoT for as long as the original writer of the story could remember. And now that he is gone, every theory regarding the Night King’s eight thousand years of history has turned out be no more than a pile of tittle-tattles.

Winterfell’s battle, according to the show members was supposed to be one of the grandest in the tv history, and boy it was, but it pales in one aspect. Even though being surrounded by a pile of ice zombies, Samwell Tarly, Brienne of Tarth, and Jaime were fortunate enough to survive their fate, while some characters like Edd, Mormont, and Dondarreon weren’t that lucky.

It could have been anyone else; not that there were any deeply favored individuals. But given the show’s notorious prestige of killing its even the topmost characters in the most surprising way, it is quite unusual to see some personas like Jon, Arya, Daenerys surviving out of sheer luck.

The Long Night ran for nearly an hour and a half and almost18 million people tuned in to watch the episode. The episode indeed went on to break records for the series. But when it came to ratings, the episode tanked quite disappointingly; it got a 75 percent rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and it is the second lowest any Game of Thrones’ episode has ever received. 

So it makes us question if the next episode of Game of Thrones is really going to be as voguish as Clarke is claiming.
