The Battle of the Bastards wasn”t just an amazing fight, but last night it won Game of Thrones a total of seven Emmys – a record for a single TV episode. But if you believe Emilia Clarke, that skirmish is going to be child”s play compared to what fans will see next season.
In an interview with TVLine, Clarke was relatively tight-lipped about details for next year of GoT as one might expect. But the actress who plays Khaleesi said that she”s seen the scripts for all of next year (“I know everything,” she said), and something caught her attention.
“So last season”s battle was, like, ridiculous,” Clarke said on the Emmys red carpet. “But this season… there”s like another battle that”s epic.”
Following last night”s Emmys, Game of Thrones now holds the distinction of being the most-awarded scripted show in its history with 38 wins. The previous record holder, which never had any epic battle scenes, was Fraiser with 37.
The new season of Game of Thrones is slated for a mid-2017 premiere. Sadly, because of this late start, this means that whatever amazing fight won't be eligible for next year's Emmys.
