Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke Reveals Episode 5 is Bigger than the Battle of Winterfell

at .

The Battle of Winterfell is over, and it's time to look ahead to the Battle of King's Landing, Game of Thrones Fanatics!

While many thought the battle between the living and the dead on Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 drained all the tension out of the final season of the fantasy drama, it sounds like there are some surprises in store.

"Episode five is bigger,” Clarke, dished to Jimmy Kimmel while chatting about the previous episode.

“Episode five is — I mean, four and five and six, they’re all insane, but like … find the biggest TV you can.”

That's good news, right?

As for that twist with Arya Stark being revealed as the killer of the Night King, Clarke said that she “was shaking and crying” while she watched. 

“It was nuts. I mean, being in — what you saw was really what it was like shooting it,” she recalled.

“You saw blood and mud and angry, screaming people. And then backstage there was blood and mud … and asleep people.”

We already know that the final three episodes will be around 80 minutes each, so they're going to have to be packed with content to keep fans happy.

This is the final season, and while we've already had many payoffs, there should still be more on the horizon. 

If you watch Game of Thrones online, you know that Cersei is working with Euron, and he's already proven to be a formidable foe.

Heroes were lost during the Battle of Winterfell, and it's likely that more will be lost in the coming episodes.

Game of Thrones Quotes

Tis a big and beautiful world. Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it. I don't want to be most of us.


Thoros: You still mad at us, boy?
Gendry: You sold me to a witch.
Thoros: A priestess. I'll admit, it is a subtle distinction.
Beric: We're fighting a great war. Wars cost money.
Gendry: I wanted to be one of you. I wanted to join the brotherhood, but you sold me off... like a slave. Do you know what she did to me? She strapped me down in the bed. She stripped me naked.
The Hound: Sounds alright so far.
Gendry: And put leeches on me.
The Hound: Was she naked, too?
Thoros: She needed your blood.
Gendry: Yes, thank you. I know that.
The Hound: Could have been worse.
Gendry: She wanted to kill me. They would have killed me if it wasn't for Davos.
The Hound: But they didn't, did they? So what are you whinging about?
Gendry: I'm not whinging.
The Hound: Your lips are moving and you're complaining about something. That's whinging. This one's been killed six times. You don't hear him whinging about it.
