“I’ve had to stand up and be Daenerys. In all of these moments, I’ve had to stand on that rock and speak to a lot of people in a crazy language. … Daenerys is a tapestry of my entire adult life. Every major scene of Daenerys is every major scene of my life,” Clarke said in a video released by HBO Monday.

We’re only a few days away, and I just keep getting more and more excited. I honestly can’t wait. This upcoming Sunday is going to epic.

Anybody who disagrees simply has no idea what they’re talking about and should leave the country.

Seriously, what are you doing with your life if you’re not amped for “Game of Thrones” to return? What are you doing?

There’s only one thing to do at sundown Sunday. Fire up the TV, grab a beer and prepare of chaos.

You all know that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. It’s going to hopefully be an epic bloodbath.
