Hold the door! Looks like Emilia Clarke's officially done being Mother of Dragons/Breaker of Chains/Aunt of a Guy She Has the Hots For.
This weekend, the Game of Thrones star took to Instagram to bid farewell to the blockbuster HBO show that made her famous as Daenerys Targaryen.
"Hopped on a boat to an island to say goodbye to the land that has been my home away from home for almost a decade," she wrote. "It's been a trip @gameofthrones thank you for the life I never dreamed I'd be able to live and the family I'll never stop missing #?#lastseasonitis
Season 7 of HBO's biggest hit ever ended in August 2017 with dragons, extra scary White Walkers, a big breakup and some steamy Daenerys-Targaryen-on-Jon-Snow action. Season 8, the final season, is coming sometime in 2019, and will consist of six episodes. Earlier this month, the Game of Thrones cast gathered for a wrap party in Ireland.
Clarke's Instagram post didn't offer any plot clues or costume glimpses, but here'sso far. (Spoiler: it's mostly rumors and hearsay at this point.) One thing we do know, straight from the mouth of : it's going to be "bigger and badder" and "someone's gonna die." Well, duh. This is Game of Thrones after all.
